wadi rum

Wadi Rum, Jordan.

For non-muslims traveling through the Middle East, the call to prayer can evoke numerous reactions: fascination at the concept, awe at the lyrical beauty, and quite often frustration (I’m talking about you, early morning call to prayer).

After a while traveling through the region however, you begin getting used to hearing the five-time-a-day call and it becomes simply another component of the daily routine… that is, until you hear a call to prayer so magical it transports you to another time and place.
