'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 â€śadhanâ€ť publicly after being granted a permit by Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey.
Al Jazeera called the move â€śhistoricâ€ť because it is the first time a U.S. city has publicly broadcasted the prayer.
â€śWhile 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,â€ť Al Jazeera reported....
When are the five times? The story does not seem to say when they are. Why? Is one at 3am or 5am? Jim Schneider's latest addition (here at SA) on this subject has a guest that says Muslims gain weight during Ramadan, because they eat after the sun goes down and before it comes up, and then sleep all day. I wonder what this does for production in factories in Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim country. I've already heard that, in the Middle East, it is impossible to get things done during the month.

I wonder how the mayor would respond if the churches decided to ring their bells again?

If GOD had accepted the Muslim religion as a means to salvation - HE wouldn't have crucified His own Son.
2John 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds."

Thatâ€™s about 40% of everyone reporting Somali ancestry in the United States and more than four times the Somali-American population of the next largest state, Ohio....

From the article that SA has, it is not surprising that Mohamadan prayer is being played in that Islamic neighborhood.
