The Islamic call to prayer. It is chanted in Arabic by a person called a mu’adin or a muezzin. In Muslim neighborhoods, it might be broadcast over speakers. This is a general translation of the call, though there are differences among countries and branches of Islam:

God is great. (Four times)
I bear witness that there is no god except the One God. (Twice)
I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of God. (Twice)
Hurry to the prayer. (Twice)
Hurry to success. (Twice)
God is great. (Twice)
There is no god except the One God.
