March 27, 2017 ~ Shabbat VAYIQRA. Maqam RAST.

Hijaz - حجاز

Introduction

Hijaz - חג'אז - refers to Saudi Arabia, which is still known as the Hijaz.

 This maqam, which originated in Saudi Arabia, has become linked with death and sad occasions by the Syrian Jews (and not necessarily the remaining non-Jewish Arabic traditions).

 According to the Jews of Damascus, the only Shabbat of the year that Hijaz is used is Debarim. According to Gabriel A Shrem, Hijaz in its purest form should only be used for Debarim, and for the rest of the weeks,  Hijaz should be mixed with Bayat.

 The Jews of Damascus only use Maqam Hijaz for Shabbat Debarim.

 Other maqamat in the Hijaz family are: Shahnaz, Suzidil, or Zanjaran.

Hijaz tetrachord: starting on D

584 484 אתוהי כמה רברבין The first words of this pizmon are from Daniel 3:33. After seeing how God saved Hananiah, Mishael & Azariah from the furnace into which he had thrown them, Nebuchadnezzar praised God, 'How great are His signs! How mighty are his wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and His dominion is over every generation!' So too do the heavenly hosts praise Hashem above, but only after Israel declares His praise below, as the Talmud states (Hullin 91b) "The ministering angels do not sing praises above until Israel begins below".

594 492 רנו גילו Raphael Tabbush Purim. The pizmon opens up in happiness and calling for the rest of the world to recognize the miracle of Purim. The pizmon describes the miracles in the megillah. The middle of the pizmon talks about the hard times that Haman put the Jews through, but the pizmon ends with happiness; calling for the Messiah and the rebuilding of the Temple.
