Blood Brothers #6: Let’s be honest, Muslims love music

In this up-close episode of the Blood Brothers podcast, Dilly and Aki Hussain catch up with nasheed artist Omar Esa.

Omar explains how his journey into the mainstream music industry began, which artists inspired him to start singing, as well as why he decided to leave instrument-based music.

Topics of discussion also include the Islamic ruling on instrument-based music, beef with instrument-based nasheed artists, Muslims’ general love for music, and UK charities paying hundreds of thousands of pounds to artists for tours.

As you’re here…

5Pillars have one humble request from you…

Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.

5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.

This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.

Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).

You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?

If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
