‘Some people see it as historic’: Minneapolis to broadcast Ramadan call to prayer five times a day

April 29, 2020   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: , ,

A mosque in Minneapolis, Minnesota, will publicly broadcast the call to prayer five times a day during the month of Ramadan.

The Muslim holy month began on Thursday when the Dar al Hijrah mosque began to broadcast the “adhan” publicly after being granted a permit by Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey.

Al Jazeera called the move “historic” because it is the first time a U.S. city has publicly broadcasted the prayer.

“While the adhan is commonly broadcast throughout the Middle East, North Africa and other places, for many Muslims in the US, it is only heard inside mosques or community centres,” Al Jazeera reported.

    My understanding is that the noise permit was granted due to the covid-19 virus and their call to prayer announcements include instruction to not go to the mosques to pray, but to stay at home to pray because of our current stay at home order we’re under (social distancing). WCCO in Mpls shows an article that says ” Leaders hope the sound to prayers will be a connector for all who feel isolated from community because of covid-19. Organizers expect the broadcast will reach thousands of residents from sunrise to shortly after sunset.” 5 times a day from sunrise to shortly after sunset for 1 month. Everybody (thousands) gets/has to listen. I heard Mayor Frye during an interview regarding this permit say “maybe hearing church bells ringing are offensive”. I am a Christian. I must say that church bells are music to the ears for more than the audible factor…”calling to prayer” over a loudspeaker system is intrusive.

    You have a note in the comments section that says, “No Responses” to this article. This is not the truth. I wrote a comment early this morning and it says, “Your comment is awaiting moderation.” Now it is after 1pm and my comment is still not posted. I used NO profanity, no vulgar language, I simply spoke the truth and my comment is not being allowed. Why?

    Inch by inch, step by step, the Muslims are taking more and more ground as democrat Governors and Mayors proudly let them. To our leaders, it is a sign of respect and bringing unity… but to the Sharia compliant Muslim, it is a sign of conquest bringing them closer and closer to their goal, “Islam as the only religion in the world.” First they got their foot in the door with immigration. Second they began to overcome the local state government by forcing the right to build their Mosques by using our own laws of religious discrimination. Third, they took legal ground by getting Muslims elected to school boards, city counsel, police, mayor and representative in our Congress. Fourth, they have increased in numbers and have become louder, boistrous, and taking over cities by using fear on the local residents to move away and more Muslims moved in. Now, for the first time in history, Minneapolis, Minnesota is allowing Muslim clerics to put the Islamic call to prayer over loud speakers 5 times a day…. and the Muslims rejoice saying, “Allah is giving America to us by using their own laws against them.”

    • ( Ps 9:17 )
      The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

      For many years the people of this country have stood by and watched ( Allowed ) satan and his people remove God from every part of this land.
      Schools, Court Houses, etc… and we have even called for watered down messages in the pulpit of the modern day ” so-called-churches ” so that it doesn’t offend anyone … Especially US !!!
      God forbid that the WORD OF GOD ( The Sword Of The Spirit ) should CUT anyone or hurt our feelings …

      Any time in times past that God’s People turned their back on Him and served other gods
      ( now in our day its sports, money, entertainment, and the biggest one of them all … SELF SATISFACTION OR GRATIFICATION )… they were given into the hands of their enemies.

      This is not happenstance … Its Written in THE BIBLE .
      There is no Turning Back … These things Must come to pass as it is written … and then shall the end be.

      My advice to all that read this is simply this :
      Study THE WORD, turn from all ungodliness, Line your life up with The Bible COMPLETELY,
      Live a holy life putting God First in every aspect of your life, Seek Him and Only Him with your Whole Heart, and DAILY PREPARE TO MEET THY GOD !!! Because my friend … one day … sooner than you might think … YOU WILL .
      STUDY, STUDY, STUDY … and GET YOURSELF READY to meet God …
      If you are READY to meet God when He comes for you … You have nothing to fear.
