For the first time, the Rottenburg mosque association will transmit the call to prayer for breaking the fast with a loudspeaker. The call can be heard around the mosque in Bahnhofstrasse. It will be heard at sunset during the fasting month of Ramadan until May 23th (initially around 8:00 p.m., at the end of the fasting period around 9:15 p.m.) and will last around two minutes. The city administration explains the reason for this “special and unique gesture towards the Muslim believers in Rottenburg” to be the exceptional situation caused by the Corona pandemic. Just like all other religious communities also the Muslim one is not allowed to gather in their place of worship, the mosque. This Ramadam there will be no common prayer and no communal breaking of the fast.
