What is the Adan/Call to Prayer ?

The Adan is a significant part of any Islamic Community, the five daily prayers which are required for Muslims to perform through out different times of the day, as the Prophet Mohammad(pbuh)himself used to make these prayers and the Quran teaches as well that Abraham among all the prophets used to pray to God/Allah through out the day as well.

The Adan is performed at the hour of the due prayer, the muazin (caller) goes to the Tower, speaker, ect and begins to call the people to prayer.

The prayer call in Arabic goes as follows.

Allah'u Akbar
Allah'u Akbar
Allah'u Akbar
Allah'u Akbar
Ash'hado an la illa ila Allah
Ash'hado an la illa ila Allah
Ash'hado an Mohammad'n rasool Allah
Ash'hado an Mohammad'n rasool Allah
Haiya al'a al salah
Haiya al'a al salah
Haiya al'a al falah
Haiya al'a al falah

Allah'u Akbar
Allah'u Akbar
Ash'hado an la illa ila Allah.

Which translates to in English.

God is Great.
God is Great.
God is Great.
God is Great.
I testify that there is none worthy of worship except God.
I testify that there is none worthy of worship except God.
I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of God.
I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of God.
Come to prayer!
Come to prayer!
Come to success!
Come to success!
God is Great!
God is Great!
There is none worthy of worship except God.
