The Zongo Chief of Mpasatia in the Atwima Mponua district of Ashanti, Abdulai Mohammed I, has appealed to the leadership of the Muslim communities in the country to reduce the volume of the Public Address system they use for their dawn prayers during the Ramadan.

The call by the opinion leader reechoes what the Environment, Science, Technology and Innovations Minister, Prof Kwabena Frimpong Boateng, made in April 2018, urging on Muslims to use WhatApp for call to worship to avoid noise pollution.

In an exclusive interview with silveronline24, Chief Abdulai Mohammed I, who is also a philanthropist, entreated the Muslims to stop using outside “horns” after they have finished their dawn prayer calls.

He said that once the dawn calls have been made to invite their members, there is no need to use the horns inside the mosque to disturb others who might still be enjoying their sleeps.

He added that Islam means peace; hence there was no need for Muslims to create any noisy atmosphere that may lead to violence with non Muslims neighbours in their various communities.

“Once the Imam calls for the prayers, I suggest the horns are put off for those who want to enjoy their sleeps sleep and the sick that may be around also have the peace of mind to rest. I believe in this way, the peaceful atmosphere we (Muslims) are enjoying with non- Muslims would continue to remain,” Chief Abdulai Mohammed I said.

The opinion leader also called on Muslims to prevail for peace for the country during the Ramadan and also the government.

“I call on all my Muslim brothers to pray for the President, the national Chief Imam and all the opinion leaders in the country to rule well.”

He also called on the Muslim youth to shun from illicit drugs and take their educations seriously so the nation can also benefit from them in future.

It will be recalled that Minister for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovations, Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng on April 10 proposed the use of mobile applications like text messages and WhatsApp in calling Muslims to prayer.

He observed places of worship in the country had become places of noisemaking and questioned why worshipers are unable to contain the noise they make within their auditorium or premises.

“In the house of worship, why is it that the noise will (not) be limited to the house of worship…and again maybe from the mosque, why is it that time for prayer would not be transmitted with a text message or WhatsApp so the Imam will send WhatsApp message to everybody that the time for prayer is up, so appear,” he said at a news conference.

Prof. Frimpong Boateng also called on churches to also consider limiting the noise that is generated from their auditoriums during service.
