Mohammad al-Zahraoui - Sufi Songs (Sama') - Cassette published in Fes, Morocco


Since 27th of may it is Ramadan again. To celebrate it, especially the blessed nights, we post here some cassettes of Sufi ceremonies from Morocco, Algeria and Libya.
First a cassette from Morocco, which I bought in an Islamic bookshop in Brussels in the late 1980s or early 1990s. It contains: Amdah (songs of praising Allah) & Dhikr (remembrance of Allah), Mouloud an-Nabi (celebration of the birthday of the Prophet (saws)) and Wafa ar-Rasoul (?) (I don't know what this means exactly). This is a typical repertoire as it is sung in the first part of a Majlis, a Sufi gathering.
