Adhan 2

Let’s continue where we left off last time.

The reason is that the adhan is centralized in Amman city. Two large mosques take turns reading the adhan (though it is not certain whether they switch every week or every month), which the other mosques receive and deliver in their neighborhoods. On the other hand, outside of Amman city, each mosque reads the adhan on its own.

I heard there aren’t many places that use the centralized system like in Amman. In Iraq and Saudi Arabia (the location of Mecca), the mosques recite the adhan by themselves.

By the way, I heard that in winter, there are times when you can hear coughs and sneezes during the adhan. Only a live program would allow that!

Next time will be the last entry about the adhan.
