I have to say this or I shall not be able to hold my piece!
It is Sunday at 1.30pm and I received a phone call from an obviously nerve wrecked person on the other end who did not sound Malay, and he said can I please help and tell the muezzin not to call for prayer too loudly!
My God I was shocked and I as a Muslim am also having the same problem, in fact if you ask anyone living in my area in Ampang Jaya, Ukay Heights areas they will say the call for prayers are erratic sometime too loudly and too out of tune that is not pleasing to the ears.
I have been a good Muslim for more than the last five decades and for heaven sake can someone from the higher authority curb this erratic practice of cackling, moaning, whining and out of tune call for prayers.
Please think of the non-believers who are trying to find out more about Islam for they will surely be turn off by the horrible and loud sound of the crazy, yes crazy, muezzins!
When I was growing up in Kampung Bharu I will be looking forward to the sweet calls for prayers, today I am a nervous wreck myself come the evening call for prayers, for it is like playing a Russian roullette, most of the time you never know who is going to cackle, to moan and to whine! Please DO SOMETHING!
