Music and Islam with Dr. Karim Gillani | Muslim Link

Music and Islam with Dr. Karim Gillani | Muslim LinkHow do sound and music inform the lives of Muslims worldwide? From spoken words to the recitation of the Qur’an, from devotional songs to melodic chants, from “adhan” (call to prayer) to vernacular local expressions, profound spirituality is communicated through sounds in daily ritual. The melodic shape may differ, but in most cases, the integrity of the words remains. Join Dr. Karim Gillani (University of Alberta) for a fascinating talk exploring spiritual, cultural, and aesthetic perspectives.
