The Supreme Melody of the "Song Of God" is clear.

When combined with the counterpoint of other faiths it becomes a sublime symphony of rich texture and masterful development!

Each part appears, ends, then reappears as the same melody but sung in a  different voice.

The major themes are continually enriched and nourished as they are passed on from one age to the next.

 The timeless symphony continues playing.

 

 

 

The supreme melody within never ends!

An Arabic Prayer for Divine Mercy:

kalamation — March 26, 2008 — An Arabic prayer for God's Mercy. In the tradition of the Church of Antioch founded by Sts. Paul and Barnabas, whose first bishop was the Apostle Peter. Where the faithful were first called Christians. From the Troparia of Penitence, Ceremony of Forgiveness, Byzantine Worship.

Have mercy on us oh Lord, for lacking as we are in all defense.
We  sinners 0ffer You this supplication
As you are Lord, have mercy upon us.
Glory to the Father and the Holy Spirit, the Son, the Father.
Have mercy upon us oh Lord, for we have placed all our trust in You.

Do not be greatly angered with us.
Remember our iniquities, but look upon us now with Your compassion and save us from our enemies.
For you are our God and we your people.
We are all the works of Your hands and upon Your Name do we call.
Now and ever and unto ages of ages: Amen.

 

 

Call to Prayer:

OnlyTurth — April 05, 2008 — Muslims use the human voice to announce the times of prayer to the community. The adhan is the call to prayer itself, and the person who calls it is called the muadhan.
The following is an English followed by the Arabic translation
God is Great (said four times)
I bear witness that there is no god except the One God . (said two times
I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of God. (said two times)
Hurry to the prayer (Rise up for prayer) (said two times)
Hurry to success (Rise up for Salvation) (said two times)
God is Great (said two times)
There is no god except the One God
In Arabic below:
Allahu Akbar (said four times)
Ashhadu an la ilaha illa Allah. (said two times)
Ashadu anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah(said two times)
Hayya 'ala-s-Salah
Hayya 'ala-l-Falah
Allahu Akbar
La ilaha illa Allah

Christians avidly endorse Jesus as the only begotten Son of God.
Muslims extoll Muhammed as a divine Messenger of the final Truth (Word) of Allah (God).

Yet both faiths proclaim the greatness of God; That there is only the one true God and that it is beneficial to come to the divine Presence in true worship.

Thus, oh seeker of truth, Which one of these beautiful chanted prayers above represents divine reality or may or may not be endorsed by the God of all being, The Counselor of all peoples, wherein the light of unity may illumine the whole Earth?

Truly, is not the same truth declared by both? Where is the great division and cause for animosity? A Christian friend of mine once stated,"The Muslim prayer is very different from the Christian one because the style of the writing is different,". I ask "Is it not better that we look at the central message and not dwell on and emphasize the seeming difference resulting from peripheral social contexts of time and place"?

Below are some original compositions exploring different styles of music.

 

A Baha'i prayer by Baha'u'llah extolling us to," Intone, O My servant, the verses of God that have been recieved by thee". Let us pray, not outwardly in a manner of ritual or place people may condone, but rather, from within the deep sincerety of our own inner communion," that the sweetness of thy melody may kindle thine own soul".

This music reflects a hybrid blending of East and Western styles. The Eastern style drone accompaniment provides the tonic key necessary as a "home tone" for the melody line. The 2nd voiced harmony carries more of a Western influence.

 

A flute harmonizing as a duet with recorded calls of wild loons.
May we, as this music suggests, learn to live in harmony with the bountiful earth that gave us life.
