MAKKAH: They have reverberated through the Grand Mosque in Makkah for centuries — the soulful and soothing voices of muezzins calling the believers, and imams leading prayers five times a day.

Almukbariya in the Grand Mosque of Makkah is the place from which the muezzin, in his soulful voice, chants the adhan (the call to prayer). It is the place from which he repeats the Takbir al-Ihram (opening takbir), ruku (bowing), sujud (prostration) and the concluding prayers, in response to the imam’s prayers.
