Ibn Umar reported: When the Muslims came to Medina, they gathered and sought to know the time of prayer but no one summoned them. One day they discussed the matter, and some of them said: Use something like the bell of the Christians and some of them said: Use horn like that of the Jews. Umar said: Why may not a person be appointed who should call (people) to prayer? Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) said “O Bilal, get up and summon (the people) to prayer.”
Sahih Muslim, Vol 1, Hadith No. 735
