We came to the Prophet and we were young men nearly of equal ages
and we stayed with him for twenty nights. Allah's Apostle was a very
kind man and when he realized our longing for our families, he asked
us about those whom we had left behind. When we informed him, he
said, "Go back to your families and stay with them and teach them
(religion) and order them (to do good deeds). The Prophet mentioned
things some of which I remembered and some I did not. Then he said,

prayer, one of you should pronounce the call (Adhan) for the prayer
and the eldest of you should lead the prayer. "
