Composed, arranged and performed by Sami Yusuf
Words by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum
Mode: Aeolian

Performed live at the Dubai Opera, musically speaking, this piece is a marriage between East and West. The composition incorporates traditional instruments of the eastern and western parts of the Muslim world underpinned by a Western/European modal system. This piece showcases the superb virtuosity of the musicians for it stretches the boundaries of what can be played on such instruments. The subject is the Supreme Reality (known in the Islamic tradition as ALLAH), which according to the Islamic tradition has ninety-nine beautiful Names. Some are ’Jamālī’ (feminine/beautiful) and some as ‘Jalālī’ (masculine/majestic). Sami Yusuf’s composition strikes a balance between the two as do the profound lyrics.

For this special performance, an open call went out to singers in the UAE to audition for the choir. A panel of judges helped choose the winners who embarked on rigorous training before their captivating live performance.
