Minneapolis City Council members for the first time pass a resolution recognizing the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The effort also supports the public playing of the call to prayer year-round.

The council’s new Muslim Caucus crafted the resolution, which lets mosques know that they can play the Islamic call to prayer, or adhan, multiple times a day. An existing city ordinance already makes it legal to play sounds associated with religious worship between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., but playing the adhan has not been commonly practiced.
