I had been working on this song for almost nine years now. The Blacksmiths were instrumental (pun intended) in bringing it together, and I’m excited to finally share its studio release with all of you. I pray you enjoy hearing it even more than I enjoyed recording it and singing it.
THIS PROJECT IS INTENDED TO BE A SADAQA JARIYA* FOR ALL WHO PARTICIPATE IN IT, INCLUDING ALL WHO PURCHASE THE CD AND MP3.
As with other releases from First Spring Records, 100% of the sales of this single will be donated to a charitable project. We will be finalizing and announcing our charity partner for this project very soon, here on this website and also on social media, insha’Allah.
Please recite the Fatiha** and send prayers on the Beloved Messenger (ﷺ) on behalf of everyone who has worked to bring this song to you.
*An act of continuous, ongoing charity
**The first chapter of the Holy Qur’an

SHARE THE PROPHET
Nader is committed to sharing the Prophet (peace be upon him) in word and deed. In a world with an increasing frequency of ugly representations of the Prophet’s pure and beautiful message, it is all the more important to openly exemplify The Prophet’s mercy, concern and generosity for all creation.
Usually production and distribution of independent albums is financed by investors who recoup their principal (plus a profit) via album sales. The album production is in debt even before it’s even recorded, and the entire sales and marketing strategy is governed by their return on investment.
In 2013 Nader embarked on a daring new endeavor, bringing together service and devotion by channeling 100% of sales revenue from future albums into humanitarian causes. In so doing, Nader makes devotional art a powerful means of service for generations to come.
By raising the seed funding for each of his albums through a variety of avenues such as individual sponsors, crowdsourcing and donations, Nader is free to channel 100% of sales revenue towards designated humanitarian causes.
“My work has always been about bringing together devotional music and positive change – both in people’s hearts and in the world around us. We just hadn’t found a model that did both things justice … until now”.
