The power of dhikr:
“We’re just beginning the processes,” Bono told The Independent. “We did some recording in Morocco last year. All the band went to an amazing religious music festival in Fez with some incredible sufi singers. It was a real humbling thing for a punk-rock shouter, listening to these people who just close their eyes for 40 minutes and sing the most sophisticated melodies.” – Bono, band member of U2
SubhanAllah! Can you imagine millions of people who will be listening to some beautiful poetry praising Allah (swt) and sending salawat upon Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him)!? Although many of you will shout out haram. It’s not haram for a non-Muslim to use it for their music. It’s also not haram for the millions of non-Muslims to listen to the Sufi melodies. Who knows, maybe some will want to investigate more about Sufism and then start studying Islam. Only Allah knows if this will be a bridge for people to come to Islam.
Shout out to Chuck who posted it on his blog.
