[Firstly welcome to the new site! One of the main reasons for moving was the lack of facilities on the old blog to post audio’s such as these, please be patient with us as we try to figure out how to use all these new features.]
Please find an audio for a wonderful series of Qasaid sung, and poetry read by Sayyid Ibrahim al-Khalifah and his students. The track ends with one of the students reciting poetry calling upon the Best of Creation (Allah bless him and give him peace) with Sayyid Ibrahim occasionally being heard in the background aswell.
The audio begins with Sayyid Ibrahim himself reciting a truely sublime qasida, a rough translation of its chorus would be something along the lines of ‘God send your blessings upon the light which manifested in the month of Rabi al-Awwal…’
Sayyid Ibrahim then moves on to read some poetry after which his students mainly sing some qasida’s which maybe familiar to some of you. Please click on the link below to listen.
