NYC Administration Allows Prayer Calls via Loudspeakers in Masjids


By Our Web Reporter 

LAHORE MIRROR – In a historic development aimed at fostering religious harmony and strengthening the sense of community ownership among Muslims in New York, the NYC administration has, for the first time, granted preliminary permission for prayer calls to be broadcasted via loudspeakers from the Masjids across the city.

For the first time, the adhan (prayer calling) was given over a loudspeaker in the Makki Mosque in Coney Island, New York.

The decision will be implemented gradually on the instruction of the administration. In response, the people of the area heard the sound of adhan echoing in the air. Listening to the adhan on the loudspeaker, a positive attitude was expressed by the people of the area.

The administration also emphasizes its commitment to consider the rights and perspectives of the non-Muslim majority residing in the vicinity of these mosques.

Previously, prayer calling was only allowed inside Islamic centers or mosques in New York.

The people of the area expressed their happiness on getting permission for the prayer calling over loudspeaker and said that for many people it is historic.

We haven’t seen it happen before, and now Muslims living in NYC are seeing it happen in their own lives.

Muslim people in the minority living in NY will now hear the sounds of Allah Akbar five times a day.
