All good things come in threes…

A month back I was fortunate enough to browse by the TheCuttingRoom.org studio, where I was made aware of the production of three exciting products to enlighten our souls:

One: A revised edition of the Qasida book called “Reflections of the Beloved”. Apart from saying the typesetter of the book is Sidi AbdasSamad Clarke (may Allah preserve him. Ameen), which Masha’Allah speaks for itself, I should also say that this revised edition is in Arabic with an English translation, has a beautifully designed cover with a well thought out layout, and it also has choruses placed throughout the text, which I’ve been told wasn’t the case with the previous edition.

Two: A reprint of Breezes from Paradise – Volume1, which includes revised Arabic text and improved quality of sound, re-engineered at TheCuttingRoom.org studio. The Asma ulHusna (99 Names of Allah) on Volume 1 was rerecorded by Shaykh Abdur Rahman’s personal favourites, Ahmed and Khalid Muzar’za, and a bonus track by them can be found on Volume 2. All other recordings are by Shaykh Salah al-Kurdi with an accompanying book.

Three: A new volume of the Breezes Compilation ~ Breezes from Paradise – Vol 2, which includes detailed explanation of how to sing qasa’id.  New qasa’id include ‘Ya Imam al-Rusli’,”Qul Ya ‘Athim” and “Laylan Sara Wa Amma”.

If anyone wishes to enquire or order the products then please don’t hesitate to contact NoOtherDesign@gmail.com
Likewise, Sidi Abdul-Khaliq Nathekar, manager of TheCuttingRoom.org, can be contacted on info@thecuttingroom.org

May Allah grant those involved in the making of these three products Much Good, Excellance in character, and Good Health. Allahumma Ameen.
