Qasidah: Voices of DevotionOrganised by: Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay
Performed by: Firkatul Huda Lil Mawalidin Nabawiyah Wal Insyad
Firkatul Huda Lil Mawalidin Nabawiyah Wal Insyad was formed by a group of friends who are passionate about the recitation of maulid and qasidahs, Arabic forms of poetry in praise and love of Prophet Muhammad. Inspired, advised and named by Maulana Sheikh Afeefuddin Al Jailani, recitation of the maulid Ad Dai'baie by As Sheikh Abd Rahman Ad Dai'baie soon began for the group. Starting from recitations at a different member's home every week, the group has gradually expanded over the past 15 years.
