The Mawlid of al-Barzanji

Together with frequent contributor Abdal Hakim Murad is honoured to present a short clip from a recording of the mawlid of Imam Ja’far al-Barzanji (d. 1764). One of the most famous and popular mawlid recitals celebrating the Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) birth, this particular recording comes all the way from Cape Town, South Africa, where it was movingly performed by the acclaimed Mawlid Jama’at of the Al-Zawiya Mosque, under the direction of Sh. Seraj Hendricks.

The recording is a gift from the Al-Zawiya Mosque, with all proceeds from the purchase of the full 68-minute video (available here for $5.00), going towards Abdal Hakim Murad’s Cambridge New Mosque Project.
