"Do you hear that?" K asked the kids.
"Hear what?" they asked.
K rolled down the car windows.
"It's the Muslim call to prayer," K told them. "Doesn't it sound beautiful?"They were driving past a Mosque on the way home from a friend's birthday party.
"What is Muslim?" The Mayor asked.
"It's a kind of religion, a faith," K told him. "Muslims pray five times a day in a building called a Mosque. When it's time to pray, the Muezzin leads the call to prayer."
K closed his eyes and listened, remembering our travels in Malaysia and India.
"What's a Muezzin?" The Mayor wanted to know.
"The Muezzin is the person at the Mosque whose voice you hear calling the faithful to pray. Do you hear him sort of singing the words?"
"What is he saying?" The Mayor asked.
"Hmmm... the call to prayer is said in Arabic," K told him. "I'm not sure how the words translate so I don't know exactly what he's saying."
The Rooster (who is only three) suddenly used her best Darth Vader voice to shout,
"Come to the dark side, Luke."
Oh. My. Got.
