This set of lyrics was originally composed as a poem by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf. I composed a tune to it in March 2009, on my second flight to Scan Fransisco in a month, en route to a private gathering of commemorating the month of the Prophet’s birth, Allah bless him and give him peace. AlhamduliLlah, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf was able to hear the initial draft himnself and encouraged me to continue refining it.
The tune is loosely based on a cello solo that my brother had composed in 1990.
This specific recording is from a live performance at the Ta’leef Collective in Fremont California, in November 2009. It was recorded live using a Canon Powershot SX 20i that I mounted on a $20 tripod. Not sure about the specs of the sound system at Ta’leef that day, but they always seem to know what they’re doing in that department.
