Note: Lomax explains in the following track that this unidentified man is announcing his recent conversion from Judaism to Islam. "I testify that there is no God but God and that Muhammad is the Messenger of God… [this convert] was released from his sleep…may your parents be with God and his Prophet (may they be blessed)." The speaker tends towards the formal register of Arabic in religious formulae such as salah 'alaihi wa salam (prayer and peace be upon him) as well as when he recites from his letter, but we have identified this recording as Moroccan Spoken Arabic due to the incidence of colloquial phrases like allah yekhaliq (May God release you – thank you) when the speaker shifts to a more informal register.
