Justin Bieber sure knows how to make his Turkish fans happy.

The 19-year-old singer halted his concert in Istanbul twice to honor the Azan.

The Azan, which also goes by a few other names like the adhan, is the Islamic call to prayer and occurs in the main mosque five times a day.

Fans were shocked and delighted at when the "Boyfriend" singer paused his show for the first time thanking the singer for being "respectful" and a "great man."

Concertgoers flooded Twitter with their heartfelt comments about the singer's decision to observe the prayer call.

Color us impressed, Biebs!
