A British-Muslim has won the heart of Ummah with his soul touch call to prayer recited at London’s iconic Tower Bridge for the first time in history.
Kazi Shafiqur Rehman, an entrepreneur by profession, recited Azaan in the style of the Grand Mosque’s head muezzin, Sheikh Ali Ahmad Mulla, at the bridge to mark the last Friday (Jummatul Widda) of Ramadan 2021.
The prayer to call was delivered during an Iftar hosted by Tower Hamlet Homes, East London Mosque, London Muslim Center, and Tower Hamlets Interfaith Forum.
While talking to Arab News, the British-Bangladeshi Rehman said that he felt satisfaction after delivering Azaan publicly and too from the Tower Bridge.
“I am just an ordinary individual and for me to be blessed with such an opportunity is humbling,” he said.
