Yesterday, while at our friends’ place, we were introduced to Sami Yusuf, a British Muslim singer whose song “Al Mu’allem” (The Teacher) has been playing on the arabic Melody music channel.
It’s really a great song in both English and Arabic in which he sings about the Prophet Muhammad PBUH and Islam. The music and lyrics are so beautiful and his voice is so soothing.
Sami Yusuf was born on July 1980. He was born into a musical family of Azeri origin and thus music played an integral part in his life.
Sami is also a devout practicing British Muslim who sees songs as a means of promoting the message of Islam and encouraging the youth to be proud of their religion and identity.
I think what he’s doing is really great and I wish more and more people would try to follow.
It’s a really good way to promote the true peaceful message of Islam and give the Muslim world their pride in their religion back.
