Arabic Music to smoke hookah by

The first song is a modern song, not religous, some of the songs are Moslem prayer songs, some are Arab pop tunes, and some are traditional Arab folk songs

Do NOT watch this video if you have high blood pressure !

She is Lebanese, I guess that explains a lot. Beirut could be like LA while Yemen the Mojave Desert!

This is a nice song, but the video part is (of course ) a comic spoof.

This song here itself is meant to be treated with great respect to the Moslem religion. There are lines in english also. (I would imagine that there are millions of Fundementalists who are upset about this video, but there are many sects and this looks like an “outreach” video.

This is a very meaningful video and portrays a person’s swift life in this corpreal world. It begins with the Moslem funeral service and portrays his partly wasted life.
The funeral is exactly Jewish too! At scene time of 1:05 check to see a man with a flat cement block in his hands as he places it down. Jews do the exact thing, and the rest is exact too! By Jews the cement blocks go over the body and then the soil is shoveled on to them to prevent impurity to the living among other reasons.

Sami Yusuf sings “Hasbi Rabbi” (Praise the Great One).the second word is NOT meant as a Jewish Rabbi. In Aramaic,Hebrew and Arabic the “Rabbi” means “great”.

Sung in English the High Moslem Prayer : Never forget to say “Make Highest the High Highness of A-llah”. I know lots of Jewish Hebrew prayers with the same words andmelody as here!

Hookah filters

Ever smoked without a filter?

That’s most of us. Either its cause you don’tknow that filters even exist on the market, or don’t think that the added price is worth even trying it out.

You owe it to yourself. There are 2 such filters widely sold online.

One filter widepread is the Nilotic  filter¬†. This is a filter named by an ingenious Egyptian¬† manufacturer, hence the name “Nil-otic”, his company is in Cairo,Egypt right on the north source of the Nile River.

I’ve smoked with the filter awhile back. Wish I had one right now, as I’m smoking Nakhla melon, a big favourite of mine, and with each toke on the pipe, I’m feeling a bit of charcoal dust in my throat.

Of course I  detach the hose after each smoke and blow out the accumilated particles, often wash it out, too, but its not enough and this dust is ruining my smoke.

The Nilotic filter is a brown mouthpiece which just happens to fit any cigarette on the market (also nice) and for us smokers of the hookah, it goes onto the mouthpiece of the hose perfect fit, filtering out that dust, tar, nicotine and what-not. It really does a great job of it.

Try it out and decide if its worth it.They say its good for 15 smokes, which at $2.50 would be  16.666 cents American for each smoke. I am a cheapo and added at least 5 more smokes and it worked. That is  12.5  cents a smoke. Its healthier and no dust in the throat.

Also available is the “Heba” filter. This filter is¬† a plastic do- diddy with ¬†holes¬† in it and its attatched easily to the bottom of the metal shaft in the water where it filters all filth from going through the hose, into the water and into your mouth.

I haven’t tried it, but many I’ve talked to at the hookahlounge like it a lot.

Hookah Smoking Caterpillar

So as a hookah smoker, our little claim to fame is the Hookah Smoking Caterpillar that we all know and love from Alice in Wonderland. So, what better is there to do than to make a banner out of it and remind us all of when we were three years old and had no idea what Lewis Caroll was talking about.
