Alhumdulillah, Ramadan has started. A month of blessings, and mercy and forgiveness. I pray Allah does not let this month depart except that all our sins have been forgiven.
The recitations at tarawih have been beautiful for the most part. I've had the pleasure of listening to 4 different reciters. The Egyptian and Moroccan Imams were amazing, masha'Allah. The Moroccan was so good that i've placed an order for an IRiver MP3 player/recorder so that i can record his recitation.
One Imam has got me thinking though: his recitation starts off really nice, but then the melodious tone goes a bit OTT. And i wonder, is there a point when the recital goes from being a recitation of the Qur'an, to something sounding more like a song. Because sometimes when he is reciting it reminds me of Mohammad Rafi.
Khair. On the workfront, we've finally been given a bit of meaningful news: they're looking to make 10 out fo the 15 odd IT staff redundant. My chances of staying don't look good! What really surprised me was that my colleagues kind of forced me to represent them on the Employee Representative Committee which kind of liaises staff concerns to the powers that be. In any case, the deal is completed this Friday insha'Allah, and the following Monday, the staff who are to be made redundant will be notified, insha'Allah.
