I went to Muscat last summer....and it was great to be able to hear the Adhan of each prayer...for so long I have been in England....which is a not a fully developed Islamic coutry and so Adhans are forbidden to propose for praying times!!!
Don't you think its a bit unfair really?!
I know it aint an Islamic country like Muscat...Oman...Dubai and so on but...I cryed the first time I heared the Adhan live :cry: ...someone actually saying it out loud for the whole community to hear, for so long I aint heared an actual Adhan being said, it was like felt something in my heart after hearing it....but because it is not allowed in the U.K ...nowonder some people forget to pray sometimes because the Adhan is not here to remind them.:raging:

I live in bradford, (which is in UK) and my local mosque calls adhan for zohar, asr and magrib out loud that could be heard in all the nearby streets. It's beautiful. My parents local mosque also call people to pray out loud I have a sister in leicester and i've heard adhan there too and also in Preston. so I don't think it's a matter of 'not allowed.' Where do you live?

It's not allowed where I live either. Maybe if the Muslims in the area where you live made a petition the council would allow it?

:sl: it's allowed in Preston and Blackburn and it is Beautiful! Masha'Allah, my town isnt that big and the masjids arent either so I doubt they'd even consider it but for the bro who lives in reading :enough!: you gotta speak out Insha'Allah, I know people in reading and it has a Masha'Allah good Muslim pop...hope it all works out :w:

Here in the US it is allowed in some communities but not others, It is permitted at the Masjids I attend in Austin.


However, in the communities where it is not allowed, church bells are also banned.

^^ well that's fair nuff

But i wouldn't be happy, i would rather they allowed both, then none, church bells don't bother me!

Jews are commanded to pray three times a day and we do not need a loudspeaker to remind us. We simply remember to do it.
