  2. Origin: [Ar.]


  1. Muezzin

    A muezzin, or muzim, is the person appointed at a mosque to lead, and recite, the call to prayer for every event of prayer and worship in the mosque. The Muezzin's post is an important one, as he is the one responsible for each call to prayer. The community depends on him for accurate prayer schedules. Historically a muezzin would have recited the adhan or call to prayer by the minarets in order to be heard by those around the mosque. Now, mosques often have loudspeakers mounted on the top of the minaret and the muezzin will use a microphone allowing the call to prayer to be heard at great distances without climbing the minaret.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Muezzin

    mū-ez′in, n. the Mohammedan official attached to a mosque, whose duty it is to announce the hours of prayer.—Also Mued′din. [Ar.]

The Nuttall Encyclopedia

  1. Muezzin
