Pearl of Wisdom

Do not give charity openly for people to see and commend you for it, for verily when you do that, you have already received your reward for it [in their commendation]. However, if you give with your right hand such that your left hand does not come to know it, then the One for whose sake you have secretly given charity will surely reward you for it openly.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Ibid. v. 78, p. 284, no. 1

Question : #140 Category: Shia Sunni Dialogue
Subject: different Adhan in Shia and Sunni
Question: Why do the Shia and the Sunni schools recite the adhaan differently, when did this division come into play?
Answer: There are different traditions that the Shia and Sunni sects refer to. The Shia refer to traditions of the Prophet (s) and the Infallible Imams (a) while the Sunnis refer to traditions of the Prophet (s) and companions. It is a popular view that Umar inserted the phrase 'Prayer is better than sleep' into the adhan for the morning prayer - which the Shia reject. Also, the Shia have the phrases 'I bear witness that Ali is the waliyullah' which is considered to be recommended to state and not an actual sentence of the adhan.
