Should we mention Tathweeb in the first Athaan (call to Prayer) of Fajr Prayer?

Question 23: Why do not we follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) with regard to making of Tathweeb (saying “al-salaatu khayrun min al-nawm [Prayer is better than sleep]” in the call to Fajr Prayer) in the first Athaan for Fajr (Dawn) Prayer according to the Hadeeths reported in the Sunan (Hadeeth compilations classified by jurisprudential themes) of Al-Nasaa’ee, Ibn Khuzaymah, and Al-Bayhaaqee?

Answer: You are right, Tathweeb should be made in the first Athaan for Fajr (Dawn) Prayer as the Prophet (peace be upon him) enjoined. It is clear from the Hadeeth that Tathweeb is part of the first Adaan made at dawn break known as Al-Fajr-ul-Saadiq (true dawn)… read more here.
