My clock said about 5:04AM when the call to prayer started blasting. I thought the earliest couldn't be before 5:30 or something but a quick look says today's prayers could start at 5:10AM. My alarm doesn't go off until 6 something. Normally, if the speakers at the mosque on 4th St aren't cranked to what seems to be 11 on the dial, and if they are a few phrases, I can quickly get back to sleep. However this morning whomever was doing the call, was loud, and spent a good amount of time vocalizing before getting to the familar "Allah Akbar" part.
Most of the time, the sounds of the call to prayer are pleasant and add character to the neighborhood. Yet the calls are not consistant when going out on the loudspeakers that can be heard at least 2 blocks away. It is not a recording.
