Radio Muzzin Play in Dublin in Arabic مسرحية مؤذن الراديو تلعب في دبلن باللغة العربية

مسرحية مؤذن الراديو, تلعب في دبلن باللغة العربية, مع ترجمة كتابية. وكل الحاضرون كانوا من الايرلنديين ماعدا انا. وقد حرصت على التحدث للممثليين الذين يصرون على ان المسرحية انما هي مسرحية وثائقية وليست مسرحية عادية. وقد ابدع المخرج والذين قاموا على هذه المسرحية بطريقة ممتازة ومستساغة لغير الناطقين باللغة العربية. وقد اعجبت بهذا الاخراج الجميل الذي لم يخرم من العادات الاسلامية والقرآنية وطريقة اداء الاذان اي شئ . انه شئ جميل يؤدى باللغة العربية على شعب لا يسمع كلمة الله اكبر الا عندما يراها في التلفزيون لقتل الاعداء او قتل اسير اوووووووووووو.. واني اذ اشكر الذين قاموا على هذه التمثيلية اقول باننا في حاجة الى اعطاء نموذجا مثل هذا في الغرب كي نطفي نار الحقد الدفين .

A freed slave became the first muezzin because he had a honey-sweet voice. Later muezzins used to climb the minaret to make the call to prayer, the Adhan. Now their voices resonate via loudspeakers - while they stand in the mosque with a microphone in their hand.In Cairo most muezzins are government employees who often sleep in the mosques and rarely visit their families living in remote villages. Besides being responsible for the call to prayer, they are also often caretakers of the place of worship, they clean the mosque and close the doors in the evening. Their calls mingle above Cairo, the city of a thousand mosques (there are actually about 30,000), forming a multifaceted soundscape. This is however about to change: The Minister of Religious Foundations wants to introduce a centralized muezzin next year. The government will broadcast a single muezzins voice live on a radio channel simultaneously to all government mosques. This will abolish the cacophony, but also the diversity of prayer cultures. Will thousands of Egyptian muezzins fall silent?“Radio Muezzin” focuses on four muezzins: a blind Qu'ran teacher who travels to the mosque in a minibus for two hours every day; a farmers' son and former tank driver from Upper Egypt, who vacuums the carpet in his mosque; an electrician, who began to learn the Qu'ran by heart after a serious accident, and a bodybuilder and runner-up world champion in Qu'ran recitation.“Radio Muezzin” has them meet an engineer who learned to encode radio signals at the Aswan dam. In a mosque made of carpets and fans, they become the protagonists reconstructing their own lives. Between their words and the video images of their daily lives emerge new voices that describe the transformation of the call to prayer in the age of its technical reproduction. After a preview in Cairo last december, "Radio Muezzin" premieres in Berlin.
