    Reflection

    June 23, 2020
    Contact: Cecile Sarruf
    I once looked past you, not knowing why. Now, I look to you with endearing eyes. You work hard at everything that you do, you planned out everything and simply do.  You keep others young but have you looked at you? Your beauty is ageless and timeless. Oh how I love you, that's all there need to be said despite the silence where we both despair. You look at me with fresh eyes but oh so little do I have to divulge. Oh so little to say but then again who are we again and where do we stand.  Just a couple of dreamers gazing at the sky and yet isn't space filled with silence but magnified by its sight. that's how I look to you my little beautiful mystery blank. Time passes and so will I but our love will grow as space expands. Forever my dear you are mine, you are indeed by far the most divine.

    Stories of The Prophets

    Screen_Shot_2018-07-20_at_1.13.11_PM.png

    The Qiṣaṣ al-'Anbiyā' (Arabic: قصص الأنبياء‎) or Stories of the Prophets is any of various collections of stories of the Noble Prophets. Because the lives of biblical figures — the Muslim prophets or أنبياء 'anbiya' — were covered only briefly in the Qur'an, scholars, poets, historians, and storytellers felt free to elaborate, clothing the bare bones with flesh and blood. Unlike Qur'an commentaries, however, which follow the order and structure of the Qur'an itself, the Qiṣaṣ told its stories of the prophets in chronological order – which makes them similar to the Jewish and Christian versions of the Bible.

    The Qiṣaṣ thus usually begins with the creation of the world and its various creatures including angels, and culminating in God's masterpiece, Adam, created by His own hand and given life from His own breath. Following the stories of the Prophet Adam and his family come the tales of Idris, Nuh, Shem, Hud, Salih, Ibrahim, Isaac,Ismail and his mother Hajar, Lut, Ishaq, Jacob and Esau, Yousuf, Shuaib, Musa and his brother Aaron, Khidr, Joshua, Josephus, Eleazar, Elijah, Samuel, Saul, Dawud, Sulaiman, Yunus, Dhul-Kifl and Dhul-Qarnayn all the way up to and including Yahya(John) and Isa(Jesus) son of Mariam.

    Stories of the Prophet was written by Sidi Muahmmed AL-Jamal the chief custodian and Imam of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Sometimes the author incorporated related local folklore or oral traditions, and many of the Qiṣaṣ al-'Anbiyā''s tales echo medieval Christian and Jewish stories.

    In Concert

    Al Firdaus Ensemble based in Granada was founded in 2012 by the English violinist and singer Ali Keeler and includes musicians from England, Spain and Morocco. Al Firdaus is where a rich variety of plants and flowers flourish together producing a rich and harmonious and intimate garden. The members of the group with their different cultural and musical backgrounds contribute to producing the unique sound of Al Firdaus, a synthesis of musical traditions, Western classical, Celtic, Arabic, Turkish, Andalusi, and Flamenco.

    The group takes its inspiration from the word Firdaus, for the most elevated abode in Paradise. The intercultural nature of this name reflects the character of the group in which musicians from different countries and cultural backgrounds are brought together with one purpose. Just as the musicians tune their instruments, so they need to tune their hearts to receive the inspiration of the moment and transmit that to the audience.  We will have a set list of Songs, including Madha Morisco, Selawat and other new features.  We will also conduct 15 Q/A after auditions are completed.
