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)
Stuned Beiber ping
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?)
He approves of kneeling down with his butt waving in the air.
Leave It To Bieber!
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?
"Yeah, I'm a Belieber !"
Allah forbid they saw an exposed Beiber on stage!!!
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?
justin - i for one, welcome our new overlords
But the whorehouse is the place that needs a mass. Not so sure there is any place that needs a Bieber concert.

“When in Rome....”
