The Ahli Junūb

Al Jeem or the Family of the South have always observed the month of Ramaḍān with their unique cultural heritage of melodious adhkār recitations. From the munāyāt before the late evening call to prayer, the adhkār between/after the prayer cycles of the tarāwīḥ prayer and the melodious words of praise (takbīr) before and on the days of ʿīd.

In celebration and towards the preservation of our culture and heritage, Al Jeem Foundation presents this selection of the Cape Ramaḍān culture:
