Description :



Songs of Presence, Qasidas of the Shadhili Path : This outstanding limited print edition helps you master the Qasidas and elevate your choral singing. It is comprehensive, functional, durable and pleasing to the soul. With more than 100 Qasidas, 'Songs of Presence' has almost every qasida you can expect to be sung in a Sufi (or Mawlid) gathering, especially those of the Shadhili Order. This includes Inna Fi al-Janna, Ayyuha al-Ashiq, Bushra Lana, Da'uni Unaji, Qad Kafani 'Ilm Rabbi, Ya Imam al-Rusl, Ishrab Sharab Ahl al-Safa and Da' Turq al-Ghayy.


It even contains Qasidat al-Burda, al-Muhammadiyya and Tala'a al-Badru 'Alayna.


Every Arabic letter has been fully vowelled following the Mughal Qur'an system. This system was designed by great scholars to make the correct pronunciation of every letter easy on non­-Arabs. Thus Songs of Presence is as easy to read from for non-native Arabic speakers as it is for Arabs.


The Qasidas found within 'Songs of Presence' contain reflections of the spiritual states of their authors: saintly and profoundly learned sheikhs and gnostics. The majority focus on Allah, drawing close to Him and the stages which occur in that journey. The rest focus on the attributes and inward realities of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and give him peace.


Although they are found in the traditions of many Sufi orders, most of the qasidas have been chosen from the living tradition of the Shadhiliyya Sufi Order in the Levant, with the others being of North African origin.


'Songs of Presence' was specifically designed to facilitate choral singing. Repeated choruses are underlined, repeated phrases are gold-coloured and repeated verses are indicated in the margins. This lets you stay focused on the words without anxiously wondering if you'll be repeating something or awkwardly singing on whilst everyone else is repeating.


In Songs of Presence, qasidas are grouped up by maqam and ordered by letter. This helps you transition between qasidas smoothly without any frantic page-flipping. The running headers even indicate which qasida is coming up. And if you're singing a pre-agreed medley, you can pre-mark 3 additional qasidas using the two book markers and flap.


The pages are proportioned harmoniously and enjoy gilded edges. The cover is embossed and foil-stamped with design from the Abul Hasan Al-Shadhili Zawiya in Amman. Art and calligraphy adorns it, with contributions from Besim Bruncaj, Ibrahim Batchelder, Mukhtar Sanders, Alparslan Babaoglu and Mothana al-Obaydi.





Reviews :

"I use 'Songs of Presence' because it saves me the effort of constantly going back to different qasida books. It has all the most important qasaid that are sung in gatherings, mawlids and the hadra in a single book."---Sheikh Mohammad Irshayd, A munshid in Sheikh 'Abd al-Rahman al-Shaghouri's hadra for 20 years. Now a munshid in Zawiyat Abul Hasan al-Shadhili in Amman.



"Since the text in Songs of Presence is very clear, it’s helped me improve my Arabic reading skills. It’s a very beautiful book. Although the Lisan Tongue is unusual, I’ve found it to be useful."---Abu Khadija.



"Although I bought 'Songs of Presence' to stay in sync with everyone else, I began to love it once I actually started using it. Just holding this beautifully produced book and carefully leafing through its priceless pages still gives me an awesome feeling that sends a tingle down my spine."---Iqbal M.



"I really like the layout and ordering of 'Songs of Presence.' It’s so easy to find the qasida I'm looking for and the qasidas are ordered in the way that you'd typically sing them, so you don’t need to backtrack." ---Faisal S.





Extract from the Foreword :


"The aim of Qasidas or spiritual odes, of which this is a compendium, is to worship Allah, by turning men's hearts to the Divine, who says, "And when My servants ask you of Me, truly I am close" (Qur'an 2:186).


The purpose of Qasidas in the Sufi path is to convey the experiential gnosis of forbearers to subsequent generations, for what comes from the heart goes into the heart, and most of the poets who wrote them were shaykhs of the tariqa who addressed their words to those with experiences like themselves, or to aspirants.


My own shaykh, 'Abd al-Rahman al-Shaghouri, Allah be well pleased with him, was a poet and the leader of his sheikhs' vocalists at the hadra or 'public dhikr' in Damascus for decades.


He once told me that the content of a qasida first comes as an experience from Allah, which the sufi poet afterwards tries to clothe in words. A poet thus distills the concentrated essence of his particular experience, from a lifetime of spiritual endeavor, into the words that make up the qasida.


To borrow a metaphor from the poets themselves, just as the universe is a 'goblet' for the beginninglessly eternal 'wine' of the Divine Oneness, which it conveys to human hearts by denoting, signifying, and portending it; so too does the goblet of a qasida convey to the heart of hearers the 'wine' experienced in the author's highest apprehensions of the Divine.


The person who can benefit from these qasidas is someone whose way lies with the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and whose heart lies with Allah."
