Lyrical Nourishment

Zawiya Perspective

$5.00

Lyrical Nourishment is a platform for poets, songs writers and artists that desire to express themselves in a meaningful way. Authentic expression has been nonexistent in our modern world; a world where humanity is at the apex of individualism. There is a great global shift taking place and the human family is beginning to realize the importance and the significance of spirituality in the arts. Poetry, one of the oldest art mediums- is a very effective way to reflect, express, and communicate globally. Abdullah "ABD" has been performing on stage for a while now and is dictated to bring the art back into its original purpose. Which is to elevate the individual soul and elevate society with its message and hope. Sign up To Perform: zawiyaperspective.org/perform

Stories of The Prophets

Zawiya Perspective

TO RSVP: PLEASE TEXT ZAWIYA@[masked] Include your full name and email. The Qiṣaṣ al-'Anbiyā' (Arabic: قصص الأنبياء‎) or Stories of the Prophets is any of various collections of stories of the Noble Prophets. Because the lives of biblical figures — the Muslim prophets or أنبياء 'anbiya' — were covered only briefly in the Qur'an, scholars, poets, historians, and storytellers felt free to elaborate, clothing the bare bones with flesh and blood. Unlike Qur'an commentaries, however, which follow the order and structure of the Qur'an itself, the Qiṣaṣ told its stories of the prophets in chronological order – which makes them similar to the Jewish and Christian versions of the Bible. The Qiṣaṣ thus usually begins with the creation of the world and its various creatures including angels, and culminating in God's masterpiece, Adam, created by His own hand and given life from His own breath. Following the stories of the Prophet Adam and his family come the tales of Idris, Nuh, Shem, Hud, Salih, Ibrahim, Isaac,Ismail and his mother Hajar, Lut, Ishaq, Jacob and Esau, Yousuf, Shuaib, Musa and his brother Aaron, Khidr, Joshua, Josephus, Eleazar, Elijah, Samuel, Saul, Dawud, Sulaiman, Yunus, Dhul-Kifl and Dhul-Qarnayn all the way up to and including Yahya(John) and Isa(Jesus) son of Mariam. Stories of the Prophet was written by Sidi Muahmmed AL-Jamal the chief custodian and Imam of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Sometimes the author incorporated related local folklore or oral traditions, and many of the Qiṣaṣ al-'Anbiyā''s tales echo medieval Christian and Jewish stories.
