What time does the shop open in the evening?
Spoiler! :
The "ears of Morocco" are a correct but literal translation.... it says "azan al maghreb".... "Azan" means "ear" but also the call to prayer, and "maghreb" means "west" but is also the term used for the country of Morocco. It is also the term used for the Muslim evening prayer, to be performed near sunset, which is why it is called "west".

So the "ears of Morocco" means the azan (call to prayer) at sunset.

There are about 2,500 spelling and grammatical errors made in Quranic texts such as spelling errors, and calls to rewrite and make the text easier to read for non-Arab Muslims and kafirs (present-day) and more linguistically correct.

For example, in Surah 68, verse 6, [the word] بِأَيِّيكُمُ ["which of you"] appears, instead of بأيكم. In other words, an extra ي was added. In Surah 25, verse 4, [the word] جَآءُو ["they committed"] appears, instead of جَاءُوا or جاؤوا. In other words, the alif in the plural masculine suffix وا is missing. In Surah 28, verse 9, the word امرأت ["wife"] appears, instead of امرأة. In 54 instances, the name إبراهيم [Ibrahim] appears… as إبراهم , omitting the letter ي , and the word سماوات ["skies"] is written in this way only once, whereas in 189 other instances it appears [incorrectly] as سموت, without the letter ا… The word قرآن ["Quran"] appears 68 times without the letter ا… The word سنة ["year"] appears eight times with the letter ة [at the end] and five times with the letter ت
