During the Friday prayer (Salat Al Jumu'ah), there are two adhans; the first is to call the people to the mosque, the second is said before the Imam begins the khutbah (sermon). Just before the prayers start, someone amongst the praying people recites the iqama as in all prayers. The basis for this is that at the time of the Caliph Umar he ordered 2 adhans to be made, the first of which was to be made in the marketplace to inform the people that the Friday prayer was soon to begin, and the second adhan would be the regular one held in the mosque. Not all Sunnis prefer two adhans as the need for warning the people of the impending time for prayer is no longer essential now that the times for prayers are well known.
The more I read the more I realized that these things are going kill us all. How do you allow religious freedom if people do not respect others religious freedom? Which is what is happening. The Muslims want to broadcast prayers, the Christians want to ring bells.

There are plenty of Christian churches in Muslim countries and they ring their bells. No one has a problem with it.

Can't wait for the Christian protestors to gather and drown out the Satanic Muslim call to prayer, with a good old fashioned mass rendition of the Lord's Prayer. It will happen.
