I'm currently in Constantinople and today we were near the Grand Bazaar, and the midday call to prayer began and it was kind of amazing because the muezzins in the two mosques Atik Ali Paşa Camii and Nuruosmaniye Camii were doing the chants antiphonally.

Is antiphonal singing from Judaism, or is it possible that Islam received this from Orthodoxy?

Also, it's interesting because most mosques in Istanbul were designed according to the Hagia Sophia.

It'd be cool if our churches that are closer together could do antiphonal bells or something.

They couldn't do the adhan antiophonally, as they have to do the same set phrases in the same order.  They may be timing: once one starts in Cairo you can here the thousand minerets starting up across the city.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Adhans always remind me of my trip to Israel couple of years ago. There are no minarets in Finland so I hadn't heard an Adhan before. It was kind of an interesting experience to heard it first time in my life when I was a little lost in the Muslim quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. Provided the fact that all Arabs seemed to be unable to speak English and I couldn't read my map properly. Cheesy

Same here in Istanbul, whenever the muezzin closest to you goes silent between sentences, you can hear the hundreds of others around the city.

Interestingly in Greece, it's wonderful to hear bells across the cities in the Orthodox Churches.

Vain existence can never exist, for \\\"unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain.\\\" (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
