BTS are receiving love from fans for a show of respect in Riyadh.
BTS are currently in Saudi Arabia’s capital for a Speak Yourself concert. They received a warm welcome, and are now preparing for their October 11 show.
Fans who gathered outside of King Fahd International Stadium to listen to BTS’s rehearsal say that the stadium fell silent for Adhan.
Adhan (also written as Adhaan, Azaan, Azan, or Athan) is the Islamic call to worship. It is recited by a muezzin (the person appointed at a mosque to lead and recite the call to prayer) several times each day.
bts break the rehearsal because the adhan (a call for muslims prayer) is starting 🥺💖 https://t.co/mNQgPQjqCD

LIKE ?@!?! BTS ARE NON-MUSLIMS…..THE AZAAN DOES NOT AFFECT THEM IN ANY WAY…..IF THEY CONTINUED REHEARSING WITHOUT MAKING TOO MUCH NOISE USING MICS IT'S JUST FINE…..BUT THEY PAUSED THE ENTURE REHEARSAL 😭
