    I have an idea - how about not playing the adhan for every prayer, rather just for the Jum'ah friday prayers. Only once a week during Midday, not so bad.

    But personally, I am against making the adhan 5 times a day. This would only make serve against Muslim interests and only play up much more anti-Muslim sentiments amongst the wider British populace and the whole "Eurabia" crap and is not necessary. At most, a single adhan for the Jum'ah prayers could be sensible perhaps, a once per week thing in a okay timing. Just make sure the Mu'adhin has a beautiful voice so as to not disturb or bother non Muslims and soothe them to an extent.

    Also, this move should be accompanied by a huge increase of Mosques engaging in a wide host of positive interactions with non-Muslim British society, and people like Anjem Choudry need to find their greatest enemies not in the English Defense League, but from the Muslim British populace, communities, Mosques, Islamic Scholars, Quranic teachers, and everyday people. The wider British Muslim community should really look up to Sikhs and even try to surpass them in doing things like fundraising for the local homeless shelter, having free kitchens for those who are in need of food, and serving as noted arbiters and peacemakers amongst different communities whether Muslim or non-Muslim. Some of this is already happening, but there is much good and positivism that can be generated from the Muslim community that can overturn alot of the anti-Muslim madness thats been pervasive in some circles. While it is certainly wrong to group Muslims as a monolith, it is necessary that striking a much better relation with the non-Muslim British public as a group will erode alot of negative stereotypes that can't seemingly go away despite what Muslims do. So even though it is unfair, it really is necessary that there is a large consensus amongst British Muslims to act as a group and not be so divided as commanded by the Prophet sw. It's a sad reality when a single Muslim can mess things up for countless others, so an image of in-group cohesiveness projected to the wider British society that works in lockstep in engaging in good relations with their non-Muslim peers and standing against the likes of Anjem is the only way things can improve in our current climate. Many will obviously continue to ignore this in favor of continued denunciation of Muslims and anti-Muslim rhetoric, but they will become a smaller minority as the wider British public takes notice and eventually come to see British Muslims in a much better light.

    I don't think this is a good idea. I'm Muslim myself and it's such a beautiful thing to hear the adan played out loud when in a Muslim country. However the uk is not a Muslim country. It would be selfish to have the call to prayer be forced upon other faiths esp for prayers such as fajir. If you really want to be reminded of prayer time with the adan use the Muslim pro app. When the prayer comes in it plays the Adan.

    How about we do not have any islamic calls at all.
    If you want one get yourself a phone and a app that reminds you when you need to go and pray.

    I agree - it shows we are a tolerant country which welcomes multiculturalism and promotes freedom of religion.
    We should let Muslims practise stoning next

    Not a chance in hell. See, this is one of the various reasons why people dislike Islam: it demands special treatment in non-Muslim countries. Imagine if the same was asked about Christianity in the Middle East, despite their not-insignificant population you'd be lucky not to be arrested for even suggesting the idea!

    What the actual ****?If it pisses these idiots off so much to see Christmas decorations, for sure they can't at the same time want to bombard us with that filth?
    (Original post by Trapz99)
    Maybe in an area where the vast majority of people are Muslim (like some places in tower hamlets) it would be fine but I wouldn't want it in somewhere like central London or a non-Muslim area.
    (Original post by Harold Godwinson)
    If it was up to me, given recent events and the callous actions of people who call themselves Muslims. I would shut down all mosques and ban the Islamic "faith" in the UK. And may I add we are all untitled to our own opinions.

    (Original post by McDonough)
    As much as it pains me to say, a move like this might continue to fuel the already growing far right in this country. Thinking about it pragmatically, it's not a good time to introduce something like this sadly.
    (Original post by Rakas21)
    This idea disgusts me. The UK is not and will never be a Muslim country, your religion may be tolerated but it should never be pandered to.

    No ****ing chance.


    dont know if its been mentioned but it already does happen in tower hamlets, no prizes for guessing the demographic of the area

    no wonder its a raging shithole

    Like other muslims have said, this isn't a good idea. The morning call would piss more people off causing more distance between muslims and themselves. How about we simply find out what time it is to pray, put an alarm or use an app and pray at home or go to your mosque. I don't know why the loud call is needed when everything works fine now. This will cause more harm than good, especially with these times. Hopefully, an arab/islamic ruled country will become a secular state, send a good message out there.
