The original pictures of this movie are ceramic tile arts on the wall of
Masjed-e Jame (Friday Mosque) in Esfahan, Iran.
(World Heritage, Photgrphed by Shi)
Conspicuous damages are recovered with graphics editing software.
The symbols on the center are designed Arabic letters.
Each meaning is as below.
The played-back sounds are Adhan, the Islamic call of prayer.
Although Adhan is often misunderstood as a chant of the Qur’an,
it is not a part of the Qur’an.
The playback times of the chants are very different from each other,
but their words are almost the same.
(See Wikipedia Adhan to know the words.)
The sound sources are on a download page, http://www.audioquraan.com/adhan.asp.
Most of the sounds are direct-linked to AudioQuraan.com.
But those that are not in mp3 format, or have conspicuous noise, are converted.
Some of the sound information of Flash movie "Adhaan" are shortened or modified,
because of limited space, or to be read more easily.
The titles begin with Al- are the name of the mosques, and added city names.
The titles not begin with Al- are seem to be the names of the chanting persons.

The biggest difference between Flash movie "Adhaan" and AudioQuraan.com is
the name of “Al-Azhar Cairo” in Flash movie "Adhaan",
which is named as “Masjid Al-Aqsa – 1” in AudioQuraan.com.
The reason is that the same sound is on http://www.islamweb.cz/audio/adhan/, and it notates the same sound as “Adhán z mešity Al-Azhar v Káhiře - Egypt”.
It is impossible to judge which is right, so “Al-Azhar Cairo” is adopted,
because this is convenient to distinguish from “Masjid Al-Aqsa – 2”.
All of them are wonderful, although a few have some cough or noise.
The most recommended one is “Al-Azhar Cairo (Masjid Al-Aqsa – 1)”.
Selecting Random and Repeat would be also fine.
沈黙の音を聴け (“Listen to the Sound of Silence”, Japanese) It also mentions of Adhan.
