Maher Zain Releases “This Worldly Life” (Dunya)
The album, released by Nil Production and Universal Music after two years of recording, features poems by Ustadh M. Fethulllah Gulen which have been composed into songs.
12 poems were selected to be vocalized by singers from 12 countries including Sweden-born Maher Zain, Ryan Shaw from USA, Natacha Atlas from the UK, Reet from India, Kobi Farhi from Israel and Ruba Shamshoum from Palestine.
In a press conference, the producers of the album said: “It is literally a polyphonic and multicolored album calling for peace through the universal language of music at a time when fighting is cried out. Music-peace fusion dates back to dawn of humanity.”
Awakening Records and Maher Zain have released a lyrics video of “This Worldly Life” and is available to view on YouTube.
