Last week, in Fontana, Ar-Rahman Islamic Center began broadcasting the adhan four times a day — omitting the earliest one around 4:30 a.m.
The only issue the center had, director Juma Darwish said, is that the prayer caller was too loud and actually broke the speaker outside — which the center is working to fix. The mosque has no end date on the broadcast.
“We’re just going to keep doing it until we feel any neighbor has discomfort with it,” Darwish said. “We’re not going to do it if a neighbor complains about it.”
Rauf Patel, director of King Fahad Mosque, and his wife, Anisa, were excited when they heard that the adhan was being publicly broadcast in Minnesota. Anisa convinced her husband to request a permit to do the same in Culver City.
And the complaints poured in. The Mosque agreed to lower the volume, then continued, 4 or 5 times a day to scream at millions in Arabic.
Is this just religion? No, they are announcing this is their territory. It’s an announcement of control. And if they are allowed to broadcast the call to prayer annoying everyone, it shows their power.
On the Nextdoor social networking app, debates raged between neighbors.
“I’m glad I don’t live near there,” someone commented, spawning a string of responses.
“There are a lot of bitter racists in Culver City” someone replied.
“What has a Muslim ever done to you?” one user said.
Uh 9-11, the london bridge neck slicer, raping little girls and children. But I digress.
“Muhammad Blah Blah Blah Bad. Ohmummah Blah Blah Bah bad.” the calls ring out. The death knell is chiming. America is dying.
