Minneapolis Muslim Prayer

Members of the Abubakar As-Saddique Islamic Center pray in the evening on May 12 in Minneapolis. This spring Minneapolis became the first large city in the United States to allow the Islamic call to prayer, or adhan, to be broadcast publicly by its two dozen mosques. Abubakar, which hosts some 1,000 men for Friday midday prayers, plans to hold meetings with neighbors before broadcasting this summer. (AP Photo/Jessie Wardarski)

Somali residents in the rural northern Wisconsin city of Barron are withdrawing a request to play an amplified Muslim call to prayer from two mosques after the idea drew stiff opposition from non-Muslim residents at a recent city council meeting.
