Friday Afternoon Sufi Music

Peace, one and all…

Here are some examples of music from Islamic Spain.  Enjoy and may Allah bless all who pass by.

Ya maliha l lama wa hula t tathanni


Ya sakinan bi fu`adi

Li habibun maqamuhu fawqa ra`si

In love young and old are the same.
In love loss and gain are the same.
In love the worlds are the same.
In love autumn and spring are the same.
Its down is up and up is down.
The earth and the heavens are the same.
The place of love is a circle,
Each spot is equal to the other.
If the Beloved scorns you or welcomes you,
it’s all the same.
In the tradition of love, to die
is the same as gaining eternal life.
(Farid al-Din Attar, trans M. Jamal)

Ma’as salama,
Abdur Rahman
