This is a wonderful collection of sufi music. It starts with adhan, the call to prayer, then continues with recitation of the Qoran and the invocation of Allah's names. The chants are beautiful and it concludes with prayers on the Prophet Mohammad(peace be upon him) together with the story of his birth in Arabic. I loved this CD especially for the dhikr (invocation) and the salawat-i sharifa (prayers on the Prophet). The whole CD is one big prayer to God chanted with humility and joy at the same time. It's a transporting experience. I recommend it to both muslims and non-muslims, to all those who would like to get a taste of Islamic sprirituality.

This is an excellent CD. The highest production values were maintained throughout. From the adhan to the end of the CD, I was enthralled. The reciter is obviously well trained and inspired. This CD has absolutely no weaknesses. Everyone interested in the traditions of Islamic mysticism will be thrilled to own this recording.

It is relatively easy for adults to have an appreciation for this form of dhikr(remembrance); what is interesting is that since receiving it, the melodies within this CD were so enchanting that my 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter have been sneaking it away to their room to listen to it on their own. An incredible experience, really, because obviously even children can recognize when people make incantations that are honest and from within one's soul.

This is beautiful ambient trance music, dont agree at all with the reviewer from Peking, China.

I use this as background music for healing therapies and people love it.

Not just for mystics or muslims.1961

For those looking for authentic Sufi music, this is a great recording with none of those remix effects so prevalent on studio releases these days. Unornamented by any technological wizardry, this recording shows all the power, passion and intensity of nothing short of raw faith itself - faith in the power of God and His Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This particular recording focuses on the Chadhiliyya Brotherhood (various spellings) in Cairo, a particularly old and venerable order that is spread throughout much of North Africa (and beyond). Famous Chadhilis include Sheikh Ahmad al-Alawi, Sheikh Ahmed Zarruq, Sheikh Abd Al-Hadi Aqhili, Abu Madyan and many of the Sheikhs of al-Azhar University. As such, it is a very good choice to represent the Sufi traditions of the Arab world. And it's purely religious music here - the adhan (Call to Prayer), recitation from the Holy Qur'an ('Imran and Fatih), prayers, the Hadra ritual (an esoteric Sufi ritual), songs in praise of God and His Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). If that doesn't sound up your alley, then go elsewhere. But if you want to explore the mystical heart of Islam, then this CD would be a good place to start. As with other releases from the Institut du Monde Arabe, it includes full liner notes in both English and French. An excellent buy, and good look into the world of Sufism.
