Mosques across the emirate will install electronic system to display prayer timings and sermons.
Abu Dhabi mosques are to introduce an electronic network system which will see prayer and prayer call timings, titles of Friday sermons and Islamic lectures displayed on electronic screens, Gulf News reports.
Friday sermons and lectures will also be recorded on MP3 devices and stored in electronic archives which will be available on the Internet.
Implementation of the system is currently underway, according to a National Consultative Council (NCC) report prepared in consultation with the General Authority of Islamic and Awqaf Affairs.
Training sessions will be held for employees of the authority and mosques, including imams and muezzins. A hotline will be available to report poor maintenance in mosques across the emirate and to allow the public to register suggestions.
