Australian city allows adhan

Harun Nasrullah

The adhan (Muslim call to prayer) rang out from two mosques in Melbourne, Australia, throughout Ramadan. Home to large Turkish communities Hume and Dandenong had the adhan broadcast for the evening and Friday prayers.

The move is a gesture of support for Muslims observing Ramadan during the Covid-19 pandemic. Similar gestures were made in Germany, the Netherlands and Minneapolis US.

Official figures place the number of Muslims in Australia at about 604,000 and over 200 mosques are believed to have been closed down temporarily due to measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.

As of May 18, Australia has 7,060 Covid-19 cases so far, including 99 deaths and 6,392 recoveries, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University in the US.
