It is said that the adhân of the people of Al-Shâm was taken from this adhân.
- Al-Dhahabî, Siyar A’lâm Al-Nubalâ`, in his biography of Bilâl b. Abî Rabâh. -
I've been watching this Syrian show as of late right and I don't usually watch Syrian or Lebanese series simply because I can't get used to the dialect - being raised in the Gulf (Khaleej) and all. Anyway the show's called Bab el-Hara and I always find myself admiring their Adhan (call to prayer) more than I would the khaleeji or egyptian versions. Guess there was a valid reason afterall.
