After the year of the pandemic Religious supplication is returning in Egypt

Sheikh Gouda Heikal, founder and chanter of the Egyptian Sufi chanting group, said that he and his band are extremely eager to revive Ramadan nights and resume religious singing, which has a large audience in Egypt.

Sheikh Judeh added to “Sky News Arabia” that the month of Ramadan is distinguished from the rest of the months of the year by the spiritual atmosphere and divine blossoms that make the vocalist in a state of existence that he does not live like at any other time.

He added that the religious vocalist is like a “sake” and the listener represents the “mustache”, and it is a mutual communication relationship in which the vocalist influences his audience with his poems and phrases that refine the soul and elevate the soul, and in return the audience influences the vocalist and completes the state of conscience that makes him present his best.

And the Sufi chanter continued: “We used to say in the singing links: Love is a disease and connection is a medicine … and proximity to the dimension of the dimension is a cure, and this saying applies to what we are currently experiencing in terms of distancing ourselves from the public because of Corona.”

Religious singing nights

Religious singing is part of the cultural and artistic activities that the Ministry of Culture is keen to present in the cultural houses and historical buildings that Cairo is full of, such as “Beit Al-Suhaimi” and “Dome of Al-Ghoury” and others.

This year, the Egyptian Ministry of Culture was keen to resume its activities during Ramadan, after canceling it last year to prevent Corona, but it imposed measures to prevent the spread of infection.

Open spaces and theaters belonging to it have been allocated in the governorates to organize Ramadan activities, with a capacity of 50% of the capacity, with strict precautionary measures taken.

Adhere to preventive measures

The exulting Sheikh Montaser al-Akret said on the Egyptian Radio that while he longs to meet worshipers in the homes of God after a one-year deprivation, this should not forget the importance of preserving personal safety from the risk of infection.

Al-Akert added in an interview with “Sky News Arabia” that before Corona, the worshipers used to roam the provinces and participate in religious concerts and seminars, and during the past year the Egyptian television was recording the chants’ supplications inside the Maspero building, then broadcast them on television and radio, in compliance with the procedures for closing mosques.

He said that he is committed to the procedures of the Food and Television Union regarding participation in the rituals of prayer in the major mosques in Cairo during Ramadan, wishing to the Almighty that the month of Ramadan will be the end of this pandemic that the whole world is suffering from.

Communication is a temporary alternative

The artist and the worshiper on the Egyptian Radio Ibrahim Rashid said that Ramadan this year restores connection between people, after a year-long deprivation in which Muslims prayed in Ramadan at their homes.

Rashid added, in an interview with Sky News Arabia, that being disconnected from the public is painful for all creative people, and people need spirituality, remember God, enjoy prayers and read the Qur’an more than in any other month.

Regarding the way to communicate with the public during the “Year of Corona”, the supplicant pointed out that he used to look out to his fans through social media, as well as the invocation on the Egyptian radio, but this is a temporary alternative that does not substitute for the pleasure of direct communication.

Regarding his works related to the month of Ramadan this year, Rashid, who performs singing at the Egyptian Opera House, said that he participated in an Egyptian TV song about the month of Ramadan.

He will participate in a concert at the Opera House to commemorate the artist Sayed Makkawi, the owner of the song “Al-Masharati”. He will also present the Fajr prayer on the 6th of Ramadan on the Egyptian radio from Al-Sayeda Nafisa Mosque in Cairo.
