Is making the call to prayer obligatory upon everyone who prays?
Question:

Is the Adhaan obligatory upon everyone that prays, even the person that prays alone in a masjid that has a (regular) employed Imaam in it?
Answer:

Yes, for it is established in some paths of narration of the hadeeth of the man who prayed badly that the Prophet, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said to him: "Make the Adhaan, then the Iqaamah." So this is a command from him, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam. And from the principles of 'Ilm-ul-Usool (The Science of Principles) is that the rule with regard to a command is that it indicates an obligation, so long as there is nothing reported that would annul this (obligation). And there does not occur the likes of this annulling report here.
