Hysterical, spiritual lyrics like the holy Qur'an
The Qur'an simile — The Qur'an in its original Arabic has a rhythmic lyrical quality.
Mos Def on Hip Hop and the Qu'ran;
“I mean, do you know how much information — vital information — you could get across in three minutes?! You know, and make it so that… I mean, the Qur’an is like that. The reason that people are able to be hafiz [one who memorises the entire Qur’an through constant repetition and study] is because the entire Qur’an rhymes. [Mos Def begins reciting Islamic verses from the Qur’an] ’ Bismillah Al-Rahman Al-Rahim. Al-hamdulillahi Rub Al-Alameen.’ Like everything… Like, you see what I’m saying? I mean, it’s any sura that I could name. ’
