Sufi musicians sing beautiful gazels (vocal improvisations) about their Master's life and death as well as prayers for inner peace, happiness and love. In Sufi belief, death is regarded as waking from a dream. The Sufi Master, Mevlana Jeladdini Rumi, considered the occasion of death to be his marriage night with God / Allah the night that lover and beloved became one.
