Madad (Arabic)

Category: Featured, Life & Society, Videos Channel: Nasheed Views: 3524

‘Madad’ is the Arabic version of Sami Yusuf’s Azerbaijani composition ‘Nasimi’ from his ‘A Timeless Presence’ album. Capturing all the magic of its live performance, ‘Madad’ premiered and was recorded at the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music. The Arabic lyrics are inspired by traditional North African Sufi poetry. Although its authors come from different ethnic origins and times from Imadaddin Nasimi, in the wisdom of their expression we see the connection they share to the timeless, placeless world of the spirit.
