Whilst broadcasting this call to prayer, Channel 4 might also like to take advantage of the opportunity to point out the advantages of prayer.

It might for instance explain that with 1 billion Muslims in the world, praying 5 times a day, that makes nearly two thousand billion prayers each year; none of which seems to stop the Muslim world being amongst the poorest in the world. In addition, prayer seems to have no effect on alleviating the problems of weather extremes or the horrors of natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis.
Since the days of Muhammed, Muslims have prayed to the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy, 2,555,000 billion times. The result of all this devotion? Look at Gaza, Syria and Egypt today and tell me how it's working! Not much mercy i suggest

Despite all these prayers, Muslims still don't know whether it is better to follow the Shia or Sunni practice. Nor has it made life better in Islamic countries with their warring tribes continuously fighting; the main casualties being innocent women and children. Muslims might like to ask themselves whether Allah is listening or if, indeed, he's there at all.

Go on Channel 4; broadcast the call to prayer but you might also like to append a health warning during the screening.
