The daff is an instrument which is struck by the hand to form different patterned sounds together with the human voice, reciting poetry. This requires time and effort and when perfected is a real achievement.
This was practiced at the time of the blessed Prophet Muhammad abdundant peace and blessings be upon him, when he migrated from Makkah to Madinah. All of the children prepared for his entrance and when He entered, they all recited the following lines of poetry whilst playing daff:
O the White Moon rose over us
from the Valley Of Wada'
and we owe it to show gratefulness
where the call is to Allah
IHT recognises the importance of children enjoying themselves and having fun. Therefore it is imperative to facilitate services and activities of this kind to the youth of our community.
This course consists of 8 weeks. Children will be taught basic patterns of beating the daffs whilst at the same time learning various nasheeds and qasaid praising Allah and His Beloved, abdundant peace and blessings be upon him.
