Islamic Music

Postby creative » 15 Feb 2005, 02:22

Salaam alaikum
There is a group called Myra Raps, also known as native deen.
They sing hip-hop music in order for children in america ... sorry i should rephrase that... in order for mainly muslim children all around the globe but mainly america (as i have seen no british site on the internet where you can buy their "music" from (or in sterling).
The way they sing is to teach young Muslims.
This is a modern idea to teach and I think this is brilliant (but I may be a little bit biased as I am quite young).
WHat do you think.
Myna Raps Website
On their website you can listen to samples

Anyway... a site that has both Yusuf Islam and Zain Bhikha and has samples of Myna Raps and has nasheed by Dawud somebody is

Tayyaba this is what you like isnt it??

Praise to the Prophet Pbuh

Amid the confusion, the chaos and the pain
A man emerged and Muhammad was his name
And walking with nothing but Allah as his aid
And the mark of a prophet between his shoulder blades
In a cave in mount hira, the revelation came
Read o Muhammad, read in Allah’s name
May the blessings of Allah be on al-mustafaa (the selected one)
None besides him could have been al-mujtabaa (the chosen one)

Muhammad, peace be upon his soul
The greatest of prophets, Islam was his only goal
Muhammad, salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam
From among all the prophets, Muhammad was the last
As his was a mission of the greatest task
There was only moral degeneration
People clung to idol adoration
For all nations, he was al-mukhtaar (the preferred one)
So was he praised by Allah, al-ghaffaar
The bearer of glad tidings, al-basheer
Leading into light, as-seeraj-al-muneer (lamp of Radiance)

In handling the wicked, he had the best of skill
He pacified with tolerance and goodwill
The best of morals he aimed to attain
All he accomplished through suffering and pain
Reviving imaan as al-muthakkir (the reminder)
He is known in the qur'aan as al-mud-dath-thir (covered up)
Only he was given the honour of miraaj
Unique was this glory to Muhammad as-seeraj (the lamp)

He was ad - da'ee illAllah hil azheem
All hadi elaa seerauteem mustakeem
His mission complete, his held in great esteem
Allah praised him as bil-khuluqil azeem
May the blessings of Allah be on mustafaa
None besides him could have been al-mujtabaa
So perfect were his morals, so justly did he rule
Darkness had vanished and the word was full of noor

Balagha ’l-ula bikamalihi
Kashafa ’d-duja bijamalihi
Hasunat jami‘u khisalihi
Sallu alayhi wa ‘alihi

Muhammad, peace be upon his soul,
The greatest of Prophets, Islam was his only goal

Some great stuff coming up here, my personal favourite is called Last Breath by Ahmed Bukhatir. A wonderful flash presentation on it was floating about a while back, cant seem to locate it... but you can hear it at the above nasheeds site, or get the high quality version at

I just feel slightly guilty on having this conversation round Muharramish.

For those who are interested in this topic, I would like to attract your attention to another discussion -

http://www.shiaworld.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=130

The lyrics are great. But I have yet to see how the MUSIC adds value to the lyrics.

I went onto the Myna Raps site...and tried to listen to a sample...it was a bad experience. I could hardly hear the words with the Music.

LEts hope we are not promoting youths to get into music by not making our intentions clear in this forum.

Another quick thing that comes to mind is the name of the topic itself

'ISLAMIC MUSIC'

Is there any such thing?

Music is Music. There is nothing Islamic about Music. Yes, the lyrics are conveying Messages of Islam. Not the Music.

So why Islamic Music?

Well, it's just usually when you speak about music, you also incorporate with it the lyrics.
yes, also some of the Myna Raps nasheeds are raps so you can't hear most of the words but if you go to RadioIslam.com then click on the melodies bar then underneath the two programs click on muslim beat archive, then click on program 30 and on windows media player move the bar to 10:58 and listen until 13:39.
That is one of the myna raps nasheeds called Labayk Allah.
I hope i have answered many queiries
