Muslim Students at Duke to Begin Weekly Call-to-Prayer

How is it some kind of violation of everyone’s privacy and rights if a Christian says “God bless you,” or hands out a pamphlet on the street, but it’s somehow NOT a violation of anyone’s rights for this satanic death cult to blare a loudspeaker that NO ONE ELSE wants to hear, and we can’t choose whether or not we hear it?  In the very least, it’s disturbing the peace.  And since Duke receives some level of public funding like most other universities, where are the liberal progressives who scream “SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE” anytime a Christian wants to do or say anything religious in public?  The hypocrisy is mind blowing, as is the total ignorance of the threat islam poses to civilization as a whole, and America in particular.

Oh, by the way, Duke is now one more place scratched off the list of possible places my child might have gone to college.  Duke can get their money to appease the muslims who hate us somewhere else.

Durham, NC – Members of the Duke Muslim Students Association will chant a weekly call-to-prayer from the Duke Chapel bell tower beginning Friday, Jan. 16.

The chant, called the “adhan,” announces the start of the group’s jummah prayer service, which takes place in the chapel basement each Friday at 1 p.m. The service is open to the public.

The chant lasts about three minutes and will be moderately amplified. {More information about the adhan can be found here.)

“The adhan is the call to prayer that brings Muslims back to their purpose in life, which is to worship God and serves as a reminder to serve our brothers and sisters in humanity,” said Imam Adeel Zeb, Muslim chaplain at Duke. “The collective Muslim community is truly grateful and excited about Duke’s intentionality toward religious and cultural diversity.”

“This opportunity represents a larger commitment to religious pluralism that is at the heart of Duke’s mission,” added Christy Lohr Sapp, the chapel’s associate dean for religious life. “It connects the university to national trends in religious accommodation.”

Muslim students at Duke are supported by the university through the Office of Student Affairs’ Muslim Life department, which hosts religious services, community service projects and interfaith events. The Center for Muslim Life provides on-campus social and spiritual meeting spaces for students as well as opportunities for counseling and advising.
