With more than 200 qasidas, Songs of Presence has almost every qasida you can expect to be sung in a Sufi gathering, especially those of the Shadhili Order. This includes Inna Fi al-Janna, Ayyuha al-Ashiq, Bushra Lana, Da'uni Unaji, Qad Kafani 'Ilm Rabbi, Ya Imam al-Rusl, Ishrab Sharab Ahl al-Safa and Da' Turq al-Ghayy.
It even contains Qasidat al-Burda, al-Muhammadiyya and Tala'a al-Badru 'Alayna.
I use Songs of Presence because it saves me the effort of constantly going back to different qasida books. It has all the most important qasaid that are sung in gatherings, mawlids and the hadra in a single book.
Sheikh Mohammad Irshayd
A munshid in Sheikh 'Abd al-Rahman al-Shaghouri's hadra for 20 years.
Now a munshid in Zawiyat Abul Hasan al-Shadhili in Amman.
Every Arabic letter has been fully vowelled following the Mughal Koran system. This system was designed by great scholars to make the correct pronunciation of every letter easy on non-Arabs.
Thus Songs of Presence is as easy to read from for non-native Arabic speakers as it is for Arabs.
