CD Reviews

Great Gift for New and Old Muslims Alike :)
umsami | Brooklyn, NY USA | 01/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a truly wonderful CD for both Muslims and those interested in Islam. As a new Muslim, I especially appreciated the Quranic recitation--as I could listen to it and work on my pronunciation. Ten different (I think) surahs are recited including Surah Al-Fatihah, al-Baqarah, al-Imran, al-Shuara, al-Takathur, al-Furqan, and al Ahzab. It also includes lots of different prayers including Istikhara, prayers before eating, etc.Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens--think Wild World and Harold & Maude) does the narration, reading of the translation, as well as a few songs. The Quranic recitation is done by Sheikh Mahmoud Khalil Alhousari.The songs are great! (Love to see an album of simply Islamic songs!) My favorite is "If You Ask Me."One criticism--I wish the CD-booklet included the transliteration (Arabic) and English for all of the different prayers. If you're just starting to explore Islam--there are many great websites out there. I also highly recommend the book "Daughters of Another Path.""

"I don't pretend to be Muslim though I've read the Koran, Dawood translation (Penguin) two and three times over. This CD is a production of Mountain of Light, based in London. Yusuf Islam, formerly, Cat Stevens, is more than a narrator, he is a translator. The album is divided into the following segments: Prayers, Night, Dawn, Day, and Evening. Given the events of 9/11/01, I shall not speak of "light to my left, to my right, in front of me, behind me, above me, below me", but I shall share the following prayer so beautifully translated and delivered:The Prayer: Ayat Al-KursiOn the authority of Anas -
May Allah be pleased with him who said:I heard the message of Allah, [arabic words]
May the blessings of peace of Allah be upon him, say -Allah the almighty has said:Oh son of Adam,
so long as you call upon me, and ask of me,
I shall forgive you for what you have done,
and I shall not mind.Oh son of Adam,
were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky,
and were you then to ask forgiveness of me
I would forgive you.Oh son of Adam,
Were you to come to me with sins nearly as great as the earth,
and were you then to face me, ascribing no partner to me,
I would bring you forgiveness
as close to it in measure."
Wonderful CD

"This CD is wonderful. I brought it to Mosque Friday and the children listened to some of it before the Imam started talking. It is very good for children and new Muslims like myself. If you have any other questions about it then e-mail me."
