RCMP Officially Reciting Call to Prayer in Canada

The RCMP has officially participated in the call to prayer in Calgary, according to the RCMP website.

The RCMP in Alberta were honored to be invited for the first time to participate in part of a Ramadan ceremony on Friday April 16 at the Akram Jomaa Mosque in Calgary. The invitation included the Islamic call to prayer recited by Corporal Nader Khalil at sunset around 8 p.m., which for Muslims is the time to break their fast for the day. Adhering to current rules of physical distancing and mask-wearing requirements, community members gathered outside the mosque for the recitation of the evening prayer. This year, with the approval of the municipalities of Edmonton and Calgary, mosques will be able to broadcast the short call to prayer through loudspeakers throughout Ramadan. The public is invited to watch this prayer unfold and take the opportunity to celebrate diversity and support inclusion in our communities.

“Ramadan” is the Arabic name for the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. This month lasts 29 or 30 days, depending on when the new crescent moon is, or should be, visible. During this month, spiritual fasting is practiced from dawn to dusk each day, and a sunset prayer breaks the fasting period of the day. The last day of Ramadan normally gives rise to a big holiday known as Eid al-Fitr, which is one of the two main religious holidays in the Muslim calendar.

Allah is Great! Allah is Great! Allah is Great! Allah is Great!
I bear witness that there is no god except Allah.
I bear witness that there is no god except Allah.
I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.
I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.
Hurry to the prayer. Hurry to the prayer.
Hurry to salvation. Hurry to salvation.
Allah is Great! Allah is Great!
There is no god except Allah.
