Tahleel in Fes Jdid

Posted in Prayers, Ramadan, Religion with tags on December 10, 2007 by Sarah Kate Kramer

About half an hour before the dawn call to prayer (adhaan), the muezzin recites phrases that glorify God and praise the Prophet Muhammad, such as

” There is nothing worthy of worship but God,”

“Oh God, Bless our beloved Muhammad,” and

” There is no power or strength except by God.”

This tahleel was recited daily during the month of Ramadan in Fes Jdid. It signified the approaching dawn and marked the last chance to eat or drink before the fast began at the Call to Prayer.
