Call to prayer

We hear the call to prayer five times a day in Turkey and I recorded one yesterday for your listening pleasure. Click Call to prayer to listen (opens another window, but I couldn’t figure out how to change that). This particular call is called Akşam in Turkish or Maghrib in Arabic, and occurs at sunset, which marks the beginning of a new day in the Islamic calendar. More information about the call to prayer here in Turkey can be found here on a site that includes information about the Blue Mosque.
