The Lofty Position of the Muazzin on the day of Qiyaamah

عن معاوية رضي الله عنه قال: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول المؤذنون أطول الناس أعناقا يوم القيامة رواه مسلم (الترغيب والترهيب 1/246)

Hazrat Mu’aawiyah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Verily the muazzins will have the “longest necks” on the Day of Qiyaamah.”

Note: In this Hadith, the literal meaning is not intended. Rather, the meaning of having “long necks” is that they will occupy distinct positions of honour on the day of Qiyaamah.
