Abu Dhabi bans music at hotels during prayer time.
The Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority has asked all hotels in the emirate to stop both recorded and live music in public areas during the call to prayer, according to The National.
The request will particularly impact on evening dining times as well as Friday brunch.
Abu Dhabi, the UAE capital, is regarded as more conservative than its cosmopolitan neighbour, Dubai, which is more frequented by Western travellers unaccustomed to the Islamic call to prayer.
