Thread: Call To Prayer

  1. #1

    Default Call To Prayer

    For me, the call to prayer each morning, throughout the day and every evening is something I got very used to on a number of journeys.
    Before I knew anything about the Muslim religion, I was always fascinated by this magical sound and the devout who carried out these prayers each and every day without fail.



    Here's a good article for a basic understanding of How Muslims Pray and What They Say. Again, just basic and pretty interesting if you've been curious about it.

    "Men ought always to pray." Luke 18:1

    "I will that men pray everywhere." 1 Timothy 2:1

    I have a question to offer you. It is contained in three words, DO YOU PRAY?

    The question is one that none but you can answer. Whether you attend public worship or not, your minister knows. Whether you have family prayers or not your relations know. But whether you pray in private or not, is a matter between yourself and God.

    I beseech you in all affections to attend to the subject I bring before you. Do not say that my question is too close. If your heart is right in the sight of God, there is nothing in it to make you afraid. Do not turn off my question by replying that you say your prayers. It is one thing to say your prayers and another to pray. Do not tell me that my question is necessary. Listen to me for a few minutes, and I will show you good reason for asking it.

    In Arabic, the word 'Athan' is to call or to inform. Religionsly, it is a call made to inform people that the time of the prayer has begun.

    A call to prayer is an idea found in numerous religions of a flag passed on to individuals from the religion showing that the time has come to participate in a planned supplication custom.
