Heard this song on the plane again...(did u know they have a nasheed channel!?) sooooo touching subhanAllah. :'(
Just close your eyes and listen to it without watching the video. I find the video so distracting. I kept staring at the people every time I heard this song and never got to really hear it until I did on the plane, so listen again! I hope they make a non-music version. Nothing wrong with the music, but the most amazing thing about Sami's music is his voice, it's incredibly beautiful. They need to concentrate on that more!
P.S. New album coming in July called "Not in my name"!!! should be interesting inshaAllah. He also wrote some music for the kite runner movie!
P.S.S. Every time I hear him in an interview or talking about his views the more I admire him for them. MashaAllah. Maybe one day he can turn into a lecturing Da'ii instead of a musical Da'ii but then again you can probably reach a lot more people through the arts.
Follow these for his interview/commentary about the making of this video/song:
