    Mosques in Blackburn and Darwen will be allowed to amplify the call to prayer on Friday, April 21, for the first time since COVID outbreak three years ago.

    This date could be the final day of Ramadan or `Eid itself, depending on the moonsighting.

    Yasir Sufi said he made the request three years ago.

    “I first asked in Ramadan 2020, when all mosques were locked down, as those attending would be used to listening to the call to prayer inside the mosque,” he told Lancashire Telegraph.

    “The call to prayer is quite beautiful to listen to, and it’s a small way of uniting everyone. Blackburn is a town that is proud of its diversity. 

    “Three years after first asking, it’s good to see they haven’t once said ‘no’. It could be the last Friday of Ramadan or the day of `Eid.”

    The Adhan is the call to announce that it is time for a particular obligatory Salah (ritual prayer).

    Approving the amplified adhan, Denise Park, Blackburn with Darwen Chief Executive, said they wanted to help Muslims celebrate `Eid.

    “In 2020 our local Muslim communities celebrated Eid during lockdown. To support private prayers within households on Eid day, arrangements were made for mosques to amplify the call to prayer and I know that it meant a lot to our Muslim residents,” said Park.

    “Following a request this year, we’ve again agreed that any local mosques can amplify the call to prayer at lunchtime on Friday 21 April, which will be either the last Friday in Ramadan or Eid day itself.”
