Sami Yusuf Obsessions

4 12 2007

Last year, one of the internet controversies that gained a lot of forwarding time on email lists as well as forums was the topic of sister Yvonne Ridley’s scathing criticism of Sami Yusuf, his music, his British Patriotism, and the boy band culture surrounding various nasheed artists, particularly Sami Yusuf.

Azhar Usman responded, only to be cut down by sister Yvonne, and then Sami Yusuf responded, and so forth.  I had written a series of blog entries regarding my thoughts on the whole thing, and even went as far as to attend a Sami Yusuf concert to see firsthand what this was all about.  This is all on my old blog siraaj.wordpress.com.  As part of the write up, I kept copies of all statements (and even cleaned up punctuation errors for my own sanity) made by all involved as well.

As a result, my old site, though it’s been janazafied a long time ago, continually gets not only hits, but comments from many people, particularly sisters who think my site is Sami Yusuf’s site, and since those comments are in the public domain, I thought I’d reproduce them below for your amusement (and perhaps horrified astonishment).  The following comments were written in response to Sami Yusuf’s letter, which is a response to Yvonne Ridley’s letter.  In all, there are currently 66 comments (mostly from sisters), and I’ve reproduced only some of them (you can read the page in full here):


“you are owsome Sami Yusuf and I 100% am on your side and i totally agree with you. Thank you for standing up for this. My name is Hawa, I am 16 years old and I am from Chechnya. I live in the United States. I am your number one fan, and i think that you are a vwery nice respectful and very handsome man that i have never met in my life. Thank you again and take care and I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH, don’t forget that many people agree with what you wrote on this letter .
Good luck to you in everything that you do in life and may Allah bless you, and every step you take. Assalamu Alaykum”

“Assalam Alaikum,
Sister Yvonne is right! It angers me to think these people are comitting Kuffur in the name of Islam. People like Sami Yusuf and 786 and misguiding our Muslim brothers and siters with Haram Trash!
I am pretty sure if I was to say that Tupac’s music is Halal because he raps about the challenges and difficulty of life, there would be an uproar, even from the people who are defending the likes of Sami Yusuf and 786! The fact is that these people are trying to change Islam, they have strayed from the Seerathal Mustqim.
Allahu Akbar !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“сами очень очень хороший певец я ево люблю” (yeah, I don’t know why someone reading a blog in English would respond in whatever language this is)

“i love you sami yusuf”

“Something that I experienced approximately 18 months ago…

My daughter maashaaAllaah is quite the academic alhamduli’L-Laah.

She was star pupil of her madrasah class for the year.

She was given a show bag as a present, which contained a Sami Yusuf CD.

I was against the CD being listened to, as I am of the opinion that music is Haraam.

Somehow, they found a track that only had vocals in it. So, I said ok to it, only!

After around 10-20 seconds into it, a techno theme boomed out of the speakers, to which my wife started gyrating her hips! A`oodhubi’L-Laah!

I looked at my wife incredulously and asked, “Do you realise what you are dancing to?”

Alhamduli’L-Laah, we never listened to Sami Yusuf ever again.

wa Selaam `alaykum wa Rahmatu’L-Laah wa BarakaatuH.”

——————————————

“Assalam u alaikum wa rahmatullahe wa barakatuh
Music is not haram in Islam…Birds sing…Rivers sing…Wind sing…everything around you sing…just listen at them.
And I want to say…Dear Sami Yusuf I all love you. Your musics is as deep as my calmness.”

——————————————-

“Asalaam aleikum fellow Muslim people.
Well, i must say Yvonne had a point, but Sami cleared his more accurately.
I agreee 100% with Sami about everthing he says.
Think about it. Music is not haram.
Listen to the world around you. Birds sing. The wind has a singing sound towards it, everything sings.
I know that everybody who listens to Sami’s music will fall in love with it, and Allah and the Prophets.
There is nothing haram in that. you cant deny it.
Yvonne, Sami is RIGHT and
you are truly WRONG!”

The next set of comments are from one sister who continuously kept coming back to my site over many months, even when she received no responses to her comments:

“Dear Brother,
Assalamalikum.

I think that Sami yusuf’s nasheed’s are very good. But the use of musical instruments is forbidden. So he is partly wrong. IF SAMI YUSUF READS THIS I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE THE INSPIRATION OF THE MODERN MUSLIM GENERATION.”

——————————————–

“My dear brother Sami, you are a great man, good soul and bih, sincerely heart… I know that everything you are doing is from heart and in name of our LORD and could something in which one is saying GOD’s name, could it be haram, wrong? Sami, just be always like you are now, my ALLAH bless you my brother. You are like my born brother and I estimate you a lot like a pearson. You are a prayer, good prayer, that is the fact.”

LOL this is hilarious. Siraaj, if only you had the vocals of Br. Sami, then maybe these comments would have been qualifying for you.

As for looks, while we all know Sami Yusuf is mashaAllah good looking, I know for a fact that you pwn him in that category.

Siraaj (18:51:48) :

Well, I’m not sure which was funnier, the obsessive fan that wouldn’t stop writing in, the fatwa based on singing creatures of nature, or the last comment, “You are a prayer, good prayer, that is the fact.”

bandar (21:00:13) :

what a pathetic argument..”music is not haram” birds sing etc…than maybe sami yusuf should have birds and cows and chickens as part of his chorus will that hallilfy it some??

Could we get an ijma on this please????

no arguments from the quran and sunnah..in fact the trees birds they dont sing..they actually praise allah swt…I’m not a scholar so I can’t quote the exact daleel…but I know for a fact i think it was in Waqiah but yes the birds do praise allah swt..and what may sound like singing to some is actually dhikr.

even though i’m not pro sami yousef…I have an opinion where maybe because of him a muslim may stop listening to pop music..and that might lead them to gaining ilm and bettering themself.. i mean his videos do portray akhlaq..which is much better than the crap out there. ….allahu alam

Asalaamu Alaaikum

Loooooooooool rofl!! ahaha, this is the funniest thing I have ever read. Oh My Allah wow….

Poor souls, May Allah forgive them. ameeen lol.

but wow Sami got some seriously hoooked fans! It’s funny how comments were like one minute “sami music isn’t haraam, sami you are right”, next minute “you are handsome”. oh man….

“Music is not haram in Islam…Birds sing…Rivers sing…Wind sing…everything around you sing”

How do rivers sing??? And the wind sings? What world is this? How can I get there?

“AND THE PROPHET WOULD THANK SAMI YUSUF.SAMI YUSUF IS RIGHT”

Oh Dear God….

“You are a prayer, good prayer, that is the fact.”

ahaha,…..ohh astaghfirullah having way too much fun with this. lol

By the looks of it, Sami is going to need some security and soon! But on a more serious note….he should just quit the piano and all those haraam instruments, the meaning of his songs are good, they would be perfect if it wasn’t mixed with haraam. That’s like hmm reading Quran while driking beer, i don’t know if that was the best of analogies lol…..

I feel sooo bad for that girl, i hope she got over Sami Yussuf….and moved on to Ahmed Bukhatir rofl. jk

Wa’alaykum Asalaam

Siraaj, you should post on your old WP blog a new post explaining how you’re not Sami Yusuf. The post should also be accompanied by a picture of you, in artificial humanoid form, nonetheless.

“and even went as far as to attend a Sami Yusuf concert to see firsthand what this was all about”

I knew it! I heard so many people saying that they saw you there but I wasn’t sure. Some people said you were walking around with your beard tucked into your shirt. hahahaha.

Siraaj, can I have your autograph?

Siraaj (03:42:34) :

Walaykum as salaam,

I did worse than tuck my beard =) But anyway, I had my reasons, and if you ever want to know the details of that whole event, you could just go to my old blog and read the following entries:

Subhana’allah, the first time i read posts from you siraaj was on that old blog and i knew the story from your blog but i did not think you were Sami Yusuf. I used to listen to the king of Islamic Pop but alhamdulilah i manged to move over the quran. Here is a youtube video that talks about more obsession

“Sami Yusuf is absolutely phenomenal! I’ve become a better person thanks to his songs. He’s doing so much to spread the true message of Islam. May God reward him.

Achmat Damon (20:37:13) :

The Sheikh of the ’Ibaad-u-Ragmaan Qadiri Jamaa’ah, Haji Achmat Damon al-Qadiri al-Chisti, invites everyone to the dhikr-ullaah that will be held at the Sunni Muslim Masjid in Harvey Road, Claremont, Cape Town on Saturday, 9th August 2008. Events will include the Maghrib Salaah, the adhkaar, the ‘Isha Salaah, the resumption of the Qadiriyya, the du’aa and a short lecture.

The recital will be led by Imam Fatgie Manie, Haji Toyer Adams, Imam Mogammad Ismail Davids, Hafith Razeen Carelse, Hafith Muneer Manie, Dr Shahiem Ganief, Haji Omar Abrahams, Haji Achmat Fish, Haji Ierfaan Sydow, Haji Liegaaj Ganief, Haji Mogamat Shafiek Salie, Haji Mogammad Faatiegh Manie, Haji Ismail Ganief, Haji Mogammad Yunus Kippie, Haji Mohammed Faaiz Adams, Haji Riedwaan Cassiem and Haji Taalieb Ganief.

The Sunni Muslim Masjid in Harvey Road, Claremont was built in 1908. Its first Imam was Imam Mogammad Amien Mustapha. He had officiated there for 54 years. Imam Mogammad Amien’s daughters Gadija (d. 1943) and Asa (d. 1944), and wife Salega nee Ryklief (d. 1953) had passed away before him. Imam Mogammad Amien Mustapha had died on 22 March 1962 aged 74 and was buried at the Mowbray Cemetery. He was survived by his children Haji Mogammad Rashaad (d. 1986), Abdul Gamied (d. 1985), Mariam (d. 1987), Jogerah (1929-2008), Mareldia (d. 1992), Asma (b. 1938) and his adopted daughter Fatima (b. 1934). Imam Toyer Latief (d. 1947) had assisted Imam Mogammad Amien Mustapha and had taught there. Hafith Abduragmaan Ely (d. 1960) had led the taraweeh salaah. Before taking up the Imamate post at Masjid al-Waqaf in Kimberley, Imam Yusuf Gallant (b. 1927) had, for three months in 1964, deputised as the Sunni Muslim Masjid Imam. Hafith al-Qur’an Imam Gasan Abdurahman was the Imam of the mosque until his death in 1975. Boeta Abu Bakr Levy (d. 1967) had presided as his second-in-command. The last remains of Imam Gasan Abdurahman were interred at the Mowbray Cemetery. Boeta Ismail Cassiem, Boeta Imraan Stemmet, Boeta Amardien Stemmet, Boeta Omar Adams and Haji Ismail Noordien (1924-2004) had, over the years, called the worshippers to prayer. The shuyukh Abu Bakr and Ebrahim Gabriels had cut their teeth at the Sunni Muslim Masjid and had qualified in al-Madinah al-Munawwarah, Arabia. Arabic grammarian Sheikh Abdullah Abduroaf (d. 2004) had studied in Mecca and had served the Harvey Road faithful from 1975 till 1988. By this time, most people of colour had been forced from Claremont by apartheid and the Group Areas Act. Sheikh Abdullah Abduroaf was succeeded by the current incumbent, Imam Mogammad Ali Gierdien (b. 1930).

It is better for our kids to listen to sami Yusuf to other muck out there. We are all too judgemental, stop critisizing others and the world would be a better place. Sami Yusuf is trying to bring a smile to our faces and the words he sings about its thought provoking, so listen before you object. Bothers and sisters, better your child listens to it in your own home, he or she might be visiting the neighbours to listen to the music and others. Love you for Allah sami Yusuf, your music is tranquill and soothing and definitly makes the youngsters think of Allah, and that is a scarceity in this world.

Slmz Sami Yusuf
i have never heard any of your songs but from what i read it seems people are falling into a trap. firstly music is haraam, it is listed among the major sins in islam and secondly birds sing to communicate with each other if they could talk they would but that was allahs will for them to sing. in case none of you know this i think you should be told and made aware of the fact that MUSIC IS HARAAM to prove this….. you should look at the life of nabi (S.a.W). where in the sunnah do you see or hear of the prophet listening to or singing music. thats all i have to say. ws

Is any form of rememberance of Allah not the point here, I do think that it is this man’s intention -Allah alone knows and Allah will reward him accordingly.
