The ‘Beduk’ is a drum that is beaten before the ‘Azan’ or call to prayers. It is also used to announce the breaking of fast in the holy month of Ramadhan. It has a thick leather cow hide wound tightly over a hollow wooden shell. The ‘Beduk’ can be found in most mosques in Malaysia especially in the sub urban and rural areas.
