The Call to Prayer

Recitation by Ahmad Abu Ghazaleh, from the album ‘Ishq – Divine Love. Music for the Arts of Islam, Art Gallery of New South Wales.’

The ‘Adhan’(Call to Prayer) is a centrepiece in Islamic life. The minaret of the mosque is the place where the ‘muezzin’ recites this, calling the faithful to prayer five times a day.
