Woman Rendition To Azaan Is A New Thing You Will Hear Today

With the commencement of Ramadan, Azaan has become more precious than ever for Muslims across the world. Azaan, for the unknown, is a Muslim prayer narrated at the mosques five times a day. However, there is belief associated with Azaan that only Muazzin, who is always a man, can narrate the same.

However, a Pakistani-born Canadain singer and rapper tried to give Azaan her own rendition. Dressed in jeans and top with skin-tattooed, she narrates the Azaan showing that each one of us has the right to pray like a normal person does.

Khan uploaded the video on April 24 and said, “Ramadan Mubarak! As a Karachi born Canadian Pakistani, my memory of the Azaan is ingrained in early childhood experience. The crackling loud speakers, the daily rituals, all part of a youth gone, but not forgotten. It dawned on me this Ramadan that I had never heard the Azaan sung with a woman’s voice, and likely never would.”

But obviously, her attempt was both lauded and criticised on Instagram. Many wrote than a woman isn’t allowed to do Azaan, while others criticised the clothes she donned while doing so.

“Ur head is not covered.. and u r giving azan, as if it is no big deal.! Sorry but u don’t know Islam,” wrote another.
