In an interfaith meeting between Muslims and Christians in a church in the United States, a muezzin gave a demonstration of the Islamic prayer call also called the Azan. Mind you, there are many Christians and non-Muslims who have never been exposed to basic Islamic practices and their symbolism. This method to call Muslims for prayer was just a practical idea by Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) and the early Muslims (more than 1400 years ago) to invite fellow Muslims to the mosque when it was time to pray. The human voice was chosen over musical instruments for it’s simplicity and beauty. Over time, the azan was perfected into varying styles to become an art all by itself. Some muezzin stretches the azan into a melodious tune while some muezzins prefer keeping the azan short and simple.
*PBUH means Peace be upon him. This is a Islamic tradition of honoring prophets and pious people of the ancient times with blessings as a sign of the highest respect.
Churches Have Great Acoustics.

The Effect of Islamic Prayer Call on Water Molecules.
The Japanese scientist, Dr. Masaru Emoto, visited Egypt to share his discoveries with Egyptian scientists, hoping for collaboration that may result in even further amazing discoveries. Dr. Masaru Emoto is a world renowned scientist who discovered that water molecules have the memory to record positive or negative auras emitted from the environment surrounding it. One his many experiments involved playing a recorded Islamic prayer call to his water sample. When the water sample was frozen and viewed under a microscope, beautiful shaped crystal patterns were captured. The image below was taken from the video interview on Egyptian TV.
Below is another example of Dr Emoto’s experiments. Negative auras produced deformed and unattractive patterns in water molecules while positive auras produced beautiful water molecules.
They say, when in doubt, you can always use science to explain the mysteries of the unknown. This is just one part of the many mysteries that could not be explained until the the arrival of 20th and 21st century technology and scientific experimentation. For those who say that religion and science cannot be reconciled, they should seriously look further into Islam and the 700 verses that deal with scientific facts before forming any judgements about the religion. Asking questions and having evidences are highly important in understanding the Islamic faith.
Lastly, below is another interesting TV report on how flowers respond to the Azan.
