When I was there, I recall the 'singing' starting up every two hours or so, extending late into the evening.

But, not 24 hours, obviously...

Nonetheless, it was a generally sleepless night, with lots of commotion and noise where I was staying. As, I said, ...never again.

There really is some rubbish posted on the call to prayer. 

 

We have call to prayer six times a day, the earliest is about an hour before sunrise, the second at sunrise, the third at midday, the fourth is mid-afternoon, fifth at sunset and the sixth an hour after sunset. So given sunrise and sunset times in these latitudes change little, from around 6:15am and 6:20pm, you will hear nothing from the mosque from about 7:30pm until 5:10am. Even then I usually sleep soundly through both the dawn and sunrise calls. 

 

To me I find the call to prayer a reassuring constant that marks the progress of the day, and the call at sunset tells me it's time to find a beer.
 

 

So you call it rubbish when people complain that at 5am the speakers at the mosque start screaming?

janclaes47: the only thing 'offensive' to members of The Cult of the Black Cube is if you are not a member, too.

Then, as their 'rules' say, it is ok to kill you...

The adhan is a song, not a scream, and depending on the muezzin's voice it can sound quite beautiful. 

 

I know nothing about Muslim songs, but there are a few mosques on Sukhumvit Pattaya, in the vicinity of businesses I frequent often, and when those speaker start blaring it's finished with talking to the business owner as you will not hear your own voice any more.

 

 

Take note I said vicinity, and not "next to", and what i hear is not a song at all but a call out to worshippers.

Islam = The Cult of the Black Cube = Satan worship (if you don't believe me, look it up, Stocky).

Pray five times a day facing the Black Cube in Mecca, or you are an 'infidel' and should be killed?

It's just madness.

And, no, I haven't "shown my hand", Stocky. Just stating the facts...

after showing your hand with the rubbish pertaining to "prayer calls the whole night" you are now resorting to present your irrelevant and ridiculous personal views. get a life man and stop ridiculing yourself. :coffee1:

Ah, Islam. The religion of 'peace'. The religion of 'tolerance'. The religion of 'understanding'.

Thanks for reaffirming this, Naam.
