AOA,
What is the history of 'Azaan'. When and how this practice of invoking 'Azaan' become an integral part of Muslim culture.
Azaan on loudspeaker, is it not a violation of human rights? Noise polution....and so forth. With 12 masjids within half a mile radius
around my house, each of them having minimum of six loudspeakers, frankly speaking Azaan time is a torture time! some of these masjids are on the same street, facing each other, yet they have to give azaan, almost at the same time.
'If a caged bird isn't singing for love, it's singing in a rage.':-)
