Your author calls the adhan.

The adhan is the Islamic call to prayer. For whatever reason, I’ve discovered a recording. So! If you care to listen:


Allahu Akbar
God is [the] Greatest.
Allahu Akbar
God is [the] Greatest.
Allahu Akbar
God is [the] Greatest.
Allahu Akbar
God is [the] Greatest.

Ash-hadu an-la ilaha illa llah
I bear witness that there is no deity except God.
Ash-hadu an-la ilaha illa llah
I bear witness that there is no deity except God.

Ash-hadu anna Muħammadan-Rasulullah
I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of God.
Ash-hadu anna Muħammadan-Rasulullah
I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of God.

Hayya ‘ala s-salah
Come to prayer !
Hayya ‘ala s-salah
Come to prayer !

Hayya ‘ala ‘l-falah
Come to success !
Hayya ‘ala ‘l-falah
Come to success !

Allāhu Akbar
God is [the] Greatest.
Allāhu Akbar
God is [the] Greatest.

La ilaha illa-Allah
There is no deity except God.

        1. Maybe? I was really, really thirsty… Also this is the first time I had to do it loudly enough for everyone to hear (and be serious about it)… I usually just say it to myself.

          But shhh, authentic we’ll just tell people that. ;)

          Actually I cringed when I heard it but decided meh you might as well hear the worst of me.

      1. Oh the adhan (when done right) has that effect on me, it can be very beautiful. Done wrong, on the other hand, it can sound harsh, shrill and plain annoying. (And that’s not to say I get to decide what’s “right” and “wrong”.)

    Rebekka mentioned getting positive spine-chills; I got a very warm, very pure sort of enveloping…something. Just to hear a woman call the adhan is a delight. :-)
