Justin Bieber Earns Turkish Fans’ Respect by Stopping Show for Muslim Prayer Calls – Twice!

By Laura Ferreiro

Justin Bieber made thousands of Turkish fans into Beliebers when he stopped his concert in Turkey to honor the Azan, or the Muslim call to prayer, on Thursday.

Also known as the Adhan, the prayer call is traditionally observed by Muslims five times a day, including just after sunset and later in the evening, before bedtime.

According to E!, Bieber's Turkish fans were "shocked and delighted" at when he halted the show at Istanbul's ITU Stadium, and thanked him for being "respectful" and a "great man." Other fans took to Twitter to praise his "good manners" and pointed out that many Muslim performers don't go to such great lengths.

“Respect” is probably the wrong word to describe a Muslim’s attitude towards an eager Dhimmi.

Well, I’m impressed. I guess I should go out and buy his records now.

(Yes, I’m being sarcastic)

If this was meant as respect, I respect it. Fine.

What is amusing is that a Bieber “concert” would seem as nearly antithetical to strict Islam as, say, a Boyounce or Madonna or ghetto-rap concert?

I mean, in terms of “morality”...

(sort of like holding Mass in a whore house?)

Bieber would lose his head in a Sharia culture.

There's nothing wrong with "when in Rome do as the Romans", as long as one is consistent. My question is, what similar respect for local custom has he shown in non-Muslim countries? Granted, it is probably nowhere near as common to run into such things in Christian nations, but for example, does his show schedule take into account Sundays where there are restrictions due to the Sabbath?

No problem with this. Just don’t expect me to wear a black sack and walk ten paces behind a male.

How many Christians actually have such restrictions about the Sabbath? How many churches actually teach that you can’t go to a concert on the Sabbath?

But the whorehouse is the place that needs a mass. Not so sure there is any place that needs a Bieber concert.

He probably had to take a break because of the previous evening’s ninepins.

Thanks Steelfish.

I have no problem with a performer showing respect for his audience’s culture, any more than I would object to the Canadian anthem being played at U.S. vs Canadian team hockey matches.

Any excuse to take a few tokes in the middle of the show.

He’s got quite a load there. His bodyguards are battling the crowds and clearing a path to the restroom?

for some reason, I was actually thinking about him today. He is a pathetic grotesque.

Give him credit where credit is do..

Pretty farsighted of him to act like a dhimma this far ahead before Shari law is implemented in Europe when he tours there...in this future...

I imagine the same folks who brought you the so-called Blue Laws in many countries including the U.S. include some Christians. In the U.S. most such laws have been turned over or are simply disregarded, but that's not true in many other countries.

I'd bet these days most American Christians aren't even aware that there were such laws. Might be interesting to look up the history of Blue Laws and see if they forbade public entertainment on the Sabbath. I wouldn't be surprised if they did in the past.

That said, such laws can't hold a candle to Sharia and so forth, for sheer oppressive restrictions.
