After more than a Century, Adhan heard in Macedonia’s Ali Pasha Mosque

SHAFAQNA- Iqna: For the first time in 107 years, Adhan (call to prayer) was recited in Ali Pasha Mosque which is an old mosque in North Macedonia.

The minaret of Ali Pasha Mosque in the city of Ohrid had been destroyed in the Balkan Wars (1912-1913).

It has been recently renovated by Turkey’s religious affairs directorate, according to Al-Jazeera.

The project to repair the mosque and its minaret cost some $2.5 million.

Now for the first time since the Balkan Wars, Adhan is recited and heard in the mosque again.

Ali Pasha Mosque was built in 1573 at the order of the Ottoman rulers.
