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

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.
