Fun Fact: The Islamic call to prayer happens 6 times on a typical day. In some cases, men sing the call to prayer through loud speakers in mosques that echo throughout town. When Muslims hear the call to prayer, they may stop at a mosque to pray. If they do, they typically must wash their hands and feet in a provided fountain.
