Arranged by Andre de Quadros and Shireen Abu-Khader, the text of this traditional Sufi melody is attributed to the Andalusian Moorish Sufi mystic, philosopher, and poet, Abu Abdillah Muhammad (1165-1240). He believed that love was the dominant universal force. He is, even today, a powerful symbol of inter-religious harmony.
