Morgan Freeman says the Muslim azan is 'one of the most beautiful sounds'

He also said that Islam "aims for people to live in peace."

Morgan Freeman revels in the Muslim call to prayer (azan) calling it one of the most "beautiful and haunting" sounds in the world. 

His comments were made in an episode of National Geographic's The Story of God, a documentary series about different faiths in the world. 

"One of the most haunting and beautiful sounds in the world is the Muslim call to prayer," Freeman said as he sat down with an imam at a mosque. 

Freeman asked the imam what the origin of the azan is and how the muezzin (the one who calls the prayer) is chosen. 

"Meeting Muslims face to face, I've learned that Islam aims for people to live in peace," Freeman said in the episode. 

"But watching the news today, you'd be forgiven for not knowing that."

Morgan Freeman went on to recite the call to prayer himself, and did a pretty good job.

Opportunity to repent is among the most important blessings from the Merciful Lord. Given our propensity to fall into sins in a world that beckons towards evil at every step, not taking help from this opportunity is probably the biggest and most dangerous folly that anyone can commit. Consequences of leaving this world with unpardoned sins are too dreadful to imagine.
