Islamic Call to Prayer: “Azan” (Adhan)

performed by:
Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens)

Five times each day, Muslims around the world are called to pray with these words. In Muslim countries, and in some American cities as well, the azan is broadcast from atop the local masjid, so that all Muslims can hear the call.
