The Muslim call to prayer echoed from loudspeakers on the rooftop of a Minneapolis mosque Thursday night, one of the first signs that this Ramadan would be unlike any past celebrations in the Twin Cities. Historically a time of community prayer and shared evening meals, Ramadan now unfolds as mosque doors are shut, imams preach from home computers, and families keep a social distance at home. And many mosques, accustomed to holding major fundraisers during the holiday, instead are focusing on providing food and services to thousands in need. Muslims in Minnesota and across the globe are reworking ancient traditions as the coronavirus upends society. Standing on the rooftop of Dar Al-Hijrah mosque at sunset, Ahmed Jamal solemnly approached a microphone, closed his eyes and began singing the prayer call, which was broadcast over loudspeakers donated by First Avenue to the surrounding neighborhood — a common religious practice in Muslim nations. The public broadcast was followed by another first. But this call to prayer was followed by a rare announcement urging the faithful to stay away. The mosque has been the heart of spiritual life and social connections. With mosque doors closed to prevent the spread of coronavirus, Ramadan is unfolding in unprecedented ways for both the faithful and their religious leaders.
