عن جابر-رضي الله عنه- مرفوعًا: «من قال حين يَسْمَع النِّدَاء: اللَّهُم ربِّ هذه الدَّعْوَة التَّامة، والصَّلاة القَائمة، آتِ محمدا الوَسِيلَة والفَضِيلة، وابْعَثْه مَقَامًا محمودًا الَّذي وعَدْتَه، حلَّت له شَفَاعَتِي يوم القيامة».
[صحيح.] - [رواه البخاري.]

Jābir (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Whoever says on hearing the call to prayer: 'O Allah, Lord of this perfect call and the prayer that is to be offered, grant Muhammad the Wasīlah (the highest position of Paradise) and the Fadīlah (the degree of superiority), and resurrect him to the praiseworthy station that You have promised him,' He will definitely be granted my intercession on the Day of Judgment.”
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Al-Bukhari]

Explanation

Meaning of the Hadīth: The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) says: "Whoever says on hearing the call to prayer," i.e. whoever says this reported supplication after the Muezzin finishes the Adhān. This is supported by the Hadīth narrated by Muslim on the authority of ‘Abdullāh ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Ās, that he heard the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) say: "When you hear the caller to prayer, say the same as he says, then send prayers upon me, and ask Allah to grant me the Wasīlah…" Based on this, this supplication should be said after one is done with repeating the words of Adhān after the Muezzin. "This perfect call," i.e. the Adhān or call to prayer, and it was named "call" because it calls people to prayer. "Perfect" means it is complete, since it comprises the creeds of faith, such as the Oneness of Allah and belief in the Message of Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him). The first part of Adhān is Takbīr, or proclaiming that Allah is the Greatest. It also contains the two testimonies of faith, which make up the first pillar of Islam, then there is an actual invitation to prayer, then it is concluded with Takbīr too. "The prayer that is to be offered" has two meanings: 1) that which will be soon performed. 2) that which no religion or abrogation will change, rather it is established and constant, as long as the heavens and earth continue to exist. "Wasīlah" refers to "the means" i.e. what brings a person closer to another. Here it is the means through which a slave draws close to Allah, Exalted, i.e. righteous deeds. The intended meaning of 'Wasīlah' here is the high station in Paradise, as explicitly stated in Sahīh Muslim in the Hadīth of ‘Abdullāh ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Ās (may Allah be pleased with him) as he said: "When you hear the caller to prayer, say… then ask Allah to grant me the Wasīlah, which is a rank in Paradise not befitting for anyone except for one of Allah's slaves, and I hope to be that slave." The Fadīlah means a rank of superiority over all creatures. So, the meaning is: Grant Muhammad superiority over all of Your creation. "And resurrect him to the praiseworthy station," i.e. on the Day of Judgment, when mankind will be brought out from their graves. It is a position that will be praised on the Day of Judgment. "The praiseworthy station" refers to anything of the aspects of honor that brings about praise. The meaning here is the greatest intercession with Allah concerning the settlement of judgment on the Day of Resurrection, when the former and latter generations will praise him. That is because on the Day of Judgment, when the period of gathering becomes too long, and the standing becomes too difficult for people, they will go to Adam (peace be upon him) and ask him to intercede with their Lord for them to get them out of that situation. However, he will decline their request, offering an excuse for that. Then they will go to Nūh (peace be upon him) and he too will decline their request, offering an excuse for that. The same will occur with Ibrahīm, Mūsa and ‘Īsa (peace be upon all of them). Then they will go to Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) and he will say: "I am up to it," then he will prostrate himself (to Allah) and he will be inspired with words of praise. Then it will be said to him: "Raise your head, ask, and you will be granted." Then, he will ask for the ability to intercede, and people's hardship will be alleviated by the intercession of our Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him). "That You have promised him," i.e. Allah has promised him the great intercession when He will judge between the creatures. He, Exalted, says: {And in some parts of the night offer the prayer with it (the Qur'an), as an additional prayer for you. It may be that your Lord will raise you to a station of praise and glory.} [Sūrat al-Isrā': 79] "He will definitely be granted my intercession," i.e. the intercession of the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) for that person is confirmed and established, and he deserves it because of making this invocation, and the intercession will reach him on the Day of Judgment. The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) will intercede for him to be admitted into Paradise without account, or to raise his rank therein, or to be saved from the Fire. "The Day of Judgment” is called as such due to the occurrence of such grave matters therein, such as the resurrection of all of the creatures from their graves, the standing of witnesses against the slaves, mankind's standing in the place of gathering, and so on.
