“The ban on Azan in al-Quds” is the latest Zionist bill introduced by the extreme right to ban the Muslim call for prayer during the night in the mosques of al-Quds and the Palestinian towns within the Green Line. The first reading was approved in March 2017 at the Israeli Knesset (parliament).
The bill was presented to the Knesset because the voice of the Azan is irritating Israeli citizens in towns near to Palestinian communities. The bill, which has the support of the Israeli government, prohibits the use of loudspeakers for prayer between 11 pm and 7 am. A fine of between 1,300 and 2,600 US dollars is imposed on those who raise the Azan in violation of the new law.
It is well known that this law is obviously intended to fight the Islamic identity of al-Aqsa and al-Quds, knowing that the Azan was raised in al-Quds for the first time after the Islamic conquest (16 AH / 637 AD), when the companion Bilal ibn Rabah (RA), the muezzin of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), raised the call for prayer in the old city, 13 centuries before the Zionist occupation of al-Quds.
