VIDEO al-Widaa Ramadaan


In Cape Town, South Africa, the blessed month of Ramadaan is characterised by unique traditions: children darting from house to house in the moments before Iftaar handing plates with niceties to neighbours, the overlapping munajat echoing from minarets of multiple Masaajid’s, the uplifting poejies that offer a comfortable gap between the Taraweeh prayers.

As the final days of the month pass, the al-Widaa (Farewell) offers a sombre reminder that the special guest is about to leave. It reflects on the unique blessings of the month of the Quraan and bids a sad farewell in the true Cape Town traditional style of recital.
