Description

Over the course of the past two years, we at Al Jeem have endeavoured to revive, celebrate and preserve the adhkār on this disk, with our unique ‘People of the South’ laagoes (melodies). Our legacy as Muslims of the South (especially from the Cape of Good Hope) is often associated with the frequent melodious gatherings of adhkār in the form of gadats (Rātib or litany composed by Imām Al-Haddād), arwaags (arwāh or souls as these recitations were dedicated as prayers for the souls of the deceased) and mouloods (mawlid or the celebration of the birth of the Prophet among others. For many Muslims of the South, these divine words accompanied by the unique melodies facilitated the memorization and love of the remembrance of Allāh subhānahu wa ta’ālā. Today as we progress further into the digital era, we realize that we have regressed from the important elements emphasized by the previous generations which they sought to preserve, in part, by the transmission of these adhkār.
For many Muslims of the South, these divine words accompanied by the unique melodies facilitated the memorization and love of the remembrance of Allāh subhānahu wa ta’ālā. Today as we progress further into the digital era, we realize that we have regressed from the important elements emphasized by the previous generations which they sought to preserve, in part, by the transmission of these adhkār. These were elements of community spirit, love for Allāh and His messenger  (Sallallāhu halayhi wa sallam), unity and the memorization of Allāh’s kalam (speech). With the dissemination of these recordings we pray that Allah accept our attempt at reviving and preserving these qualities for the next generation of ‘People of the South’. Fond memories will remain of the LP’s and cassettes which played in our homes and created an atmosphere of spiritual reverence and tranquility that had profound effects on our hearts. We hope that we can recreate this for the future generations in shā Allāh (God so-willing)
Arranged according to the Islamic, Hijri calendar months and seasons, these beautiful tracks will not only take the listener on a nostalgic journey through the past, but also provide the appropriate spiritual environments within our homes, minds and souls as we look forward, with hope, to our future
