- A change in a city ordinance in Minneapolis, Minnesota, will mean that area mosques will soon be able to broadcast the Muslim call to prayer five times a day, all year round.
- The Muslim call to prayer — called adhan and conducted entirely in Arabic — has been broadcast publicly from mosque speakers in the city for some time. However, a previous citywide noise restriction limited area mosques to three adhans per day between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.
- Mosques were unable to broadcast adhans at dawn or late at night. There were also rules restricting adhans to certain times of the year.
