What do you guys think about the following meme that I got from a fatwa on islamqa.info:
Whoever hears the call to adhan with normal voice without loudspeaker, he is obliged to respond to it; if he can’t, then he is not obliged to. Does this apply to Friday prayers as well?

No one is obliged to follow any religion.

Actually, that’s not very true in parts of this world.

True.  I overplayed that one.

How about presidential candidates in the U.S.?

“Jefferson used certain passages of the New Testament to compose The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth (the “Jefferson Bible”), which excluded any miracles by Jesus and stressed his moral message.”  Could a candidate today even go this far?

To the OP. Thats something I would go along with. The loudspeaker ina an innovaiton in rleligion, maybe a “good one” but I dont think it should to be necessary to respond to it. Another one is alarm clocks. IIRC the ancient ruling was if you slept through dawn prayers, then say them late. Some people say “now we have alarms theres no excuse” but they are basing their logic on innovations in faith. Alarm clocks were not there for the “salaf” so why should we go by them? Strictly speaking.
