The final track is an original composition based upon the motivic style developed in the nine improvisations on known modes. Muhammad Qadri Dalal's motivic style is a departure for Arabic classical music.

Note the appearance of modes associated with Persian classical music, and maybe even Indian. More remarks forthcoming.
