01. Rak El Habib (Part 1)
02. Rak El Habib (Part 2)
The j-card has titles of praise inscribed on it: Star of the East and First Lady of Arabic Song. They are well-deserved nicknames. The lyrics were composed by Ahmed Rami and the music was composed by Mohamed El Qasabgi who composed many wonderful songs for Umm Kulthum and a few other singers. This is one of Umm Kulthum's most famous and popular works, and for good reason.
There are a couple weird skips in Part 2 which must be due to some laziness during the process of abbreviating the recording (they weren't about to put a 2-hour song on cassette).
Special thanks to daretelayam for the translation.
