Fatawa of Ayatullah al Uzama Syed Ali al-Husaini Seestani
Niyyah of pronouncing Ash hadu anna Amiral Mu'minina Aliyyan Waliyyullah in Adhan
Question: Is the Third Testimony part of Adhan and Iqamah?
928. Ash hadu anna Amiral Mu'minina 'Aliyyan Waliyyullah ( I testify that the Commander of the faithful, Imam Ali (AS) is the vicegerent of Allah) is not a part of either Adhan or Iqamah. But it is preferable that it is pronounced after Ash hadu anna Muhammadan Rasulul lah with the niyyat of Qurbat.
