Forgive the long intro – i had hoped you could hear the intro from Majda Anwar a bit better. She is providing a little background information on the song and original composer of the music being used. It’s Ma’wood by Abdel Halim Hafiz performed and arranged by Safaa Farid from the CD Sukara. In a nutshell – The song is about a man who is happy confused by a former lover’s return and is trying to come to terms with his feelings.
