Adhan is best time to repent

A senior Muslim cleric in Burundi, sheik Kassim Habyamana, has advised Muslims to take Adhan seriously because apart from reminding them
about time for prayers it also the best period to repent.
He said this while addressing Muslims at their Mosque in the suburb of the country’s capital Bujumbura.
Adhan is repeated at every prescribed time of prayer. It is done five times in a day.
Habyamana said, ‘Allahu Akbar which means God is great is what the muezzin or the person who calls people for prayers shouts at every mosque. Is it not true that God is great?’
He said that it is indeed important to often remind the believers about God being great.
He said that unfortunately, some people including Muslims mistake Adhan to be a mere reminder like an alarm clock does.
He said that many Muslims do not know that the best time to repent is during Adhan. He said, ‘Adhan is the best time for Muslims to repent their sins. On hearing the Adhan, when a believer asks for forgiveness and blessings before prayers start, Allah listens.
He said that Muslims are supposed to immediately respond to the Adhan because it is a requirement for all believers.
