Yusuf Islam – Music & Da’wah


Assalamu ‘Alaikum,

I know I have posted a lot of Yusuf Islam stuff on the blog latey but I just happen to admire the man and believe his doing a good job. I was just reading a review of his concert in the states and was really moved by the ending:

Before diving into the shimmering acoustic melody of “Peace Train” to close the evening, a fan shouted to the former Cat Stevens, excitedly calling him “the best!” Yusuf smiled. “No,” he said, pointing skyward, “He’s the best, he’s the best.”

To me this is such a beautiful form of Da’wah and I love the subtlety in the way in which he sends out key messages in his music, his performances, and interviews.

May Allah bless him in the work that he is doing. I can’t wait to see the Musical Moonshadow when it is complete.

Was Salam
