I watched Bobby Chin travelog to middle east few months ago and while he’s in Egypt..(apparently her mom is Egyptian), theres a mawlid celebration and the camera shot a parade of muslims giving salawat. The woman are ululating in the highest pitch they can and somehow…dancing.
I find this unfavorable to my liking.
In the Middle East, zaghareet (Arabic: زغرودة) is a ululation performed to honor someone.
A ululation is a long, wavering, high-pitched vocal sound resembling a howl with a trilling quality. It is produced by emitting a high pitched loud voice accompanied with a rapid movement of the tongue and the uvula
And last night i watch Lion of the desert, selepas hukuman gantung Umar mukhtar, the lady stand up and start to ululate…i find it strange. Kalau in wedding maybe boleh diterima sebab custom diorang but..of the death of a significant figure?
ps: Dalam episode ANTM ada nampak Miss J ululate time tengok belly dancer at Morocco.
“Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be as near to perfection as you can and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded for it.”
