Salam alaik kepada sahabat-sahabatku sekalian,
Kali ini saya ingin mengulaskan sedikit sebanyak tentang dunia seni nasyid.Kita lupakan sejenak para munsyid dalam negeri kita iaitu Malaysia.Apa kata kita jelajah dunia sebentar.Sebenarnya banyak lagi para nasyid di luar sana dan kebanyakan daripada mereka menjadi favourite saya.Melalui nasyid juga kita dapat berdakwah dan bila kena irama dan liriknya,jiwa kita akan tersentuh dan tidak mustahil pintu hati kita akan terbuka untuk menerima hidayah Allah.So,siapa kata nasyid itu taste budak kampung?siapa kata nasyid itu hanya untuk orang-orang yang alim sahaja?Boleh saya katakan,taraf nasyid lebih tinggi daripada muzik-muzik lain yang melalaikan.Jom kita tengok siapa para munsyid antarabangsa!! :D
Saya sangat meminati lagu-lagu beliau terutamanya Al-muallim.Bagi saya penyampaiannya sangat ikhlas dan jujur dari hati.Ianya terpancar pada wajahnya ketika beliau menyanyi.Rentak nasyidnya variety namun lebih kepada muzik ala-ala Arab seperti Ya Mustafa,Ya Muhammad,Hasbi Rabbi dan Allahu.Namun ada juga yang bercorakkan pop dan ballade seperti Asmaa Husna.Kebanyakan video clip beliau mempunyai maksud-maksud yang tersirat seperti unsur-unsur nasihat dan dakwah.
Jom kita berkenalan dengan lebih dekat dengan munsyid yang bernama Sami Yusuf ini!
Sami Yusuf (born July 1980) is a British Muslim singer-songwriter of Azeri descent.He was born in Tehran, Iran to Azeri Muslim parents and raised in London.
Signed to Awakening Records, his first album Al-Mu'allim was self-produced and released in July 2003 which attained huge success. His second album, My Ummah, which was released in 2005, comes in two versions, a musical version and one with just percussion. Yusuf's music comprises mostly of songs to do with Islam and being a Muslim in today's world. He also deals with many social and humanitarian issues in his music. Presently, he is fast becoming a very popular figure in the Islamic world, having made videos for several of his tracks.A third album, entitled 'Without You', is planned for release during mid-2008. Sami performed two of the songs from his upcoming album in his Wembley concert (21 October 2007), and during his US tour, organised by Islamic Relief.
Antara lagunya adalah:My Ummah,Allahu,Meditation dan banyak lagi.Video di bawah memaparkan lagu Al-Muallim.Hayatinya!;D
Saya mula mengenali beliau apabila saya mendengar Selawat Burdah yang telah dinasyidkan.Muziknya sangat 'catchy' dan ala Arabic juga.Hanya kedengaran bunyi gendang berserta alunan suaranya yang 'lemak',sudah cukup untuk membakar semangat jihad para muslimin.Video klip Selawat Burdahnya juga sarat dengan mesej tersirat.You should watch it!
Mari kita mengetahui tentang beliau dengan lebih lanjut.
Mesut Kurtis was born in July 1981. He was born and brought up in a Muslim family. He spent his childhood in Skopje, Macedonia.He went onto study at an Islamic college in Skojpe that allowed him to go to the UK to study for a degree in Human Sciences with Islamic Studies.
Mesut would describe his music as having a mix influences from Eastern and Western styles. He sings mainly about putting love into peoples hearts towards Allah and Mohammad. He says in general, his music represents a way of life and its philosophy. He is currently working on new songs and practicing current songs for his concerts around the world. Islam has had a direct impact upon his music. He uses the Qur'an as an example whereby every letter has a different melody and style of pronunciation, just like the sounds of nature do on the Earth. He reflects on who "The Creator" is when working upon his music.
Jom tonton video clip beliau iaitu Selawat Burdah di bawah..;)
Antara lagunya:Salawat,Never Forget,Alayka,No one but Allah dan banyak lagi.
Yusuf Islam (born Steven Demetre Georgiou on 21 July 1948), best known by his former stage name Cat Stevens, is a British musician of Greek Cypriot and Swedish ancestry. He is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, educator, philanthropist and prominent convert to Islam.
Stevens reverted to Islam at the height of his fame in 1977. The following year, he adopted his Muslim name Yusuf Islam, sold his possessions at auction,and left his music career to devote himself to educational and philanthropic causes in the Muslim community. He has been given several awards for his work in promoting peace in the world, including 2003's World Award, the 2004 Man for Peace Award and the 2007 Mediterranean Prize for Peace. In 2006, he returned to pop music, with his first album of new pop songs in 28 years, entitled An Other Cup.
Antara lagu Yusuf Islam adalah:I look I see,Bismillah,Life of the last prophet,Heaven where true love goes dan banyak lagi.
Sebelum ini saya pernah mendengar namanya di kalangan para munsyid yang lain tapi baru sekarang saya berkesempatan mendengan hasil dakwahnya.Rupa-rupanya lagu Praise to the Prophet itu nyanyiannya!Subhanallah!Suaranya sangat merdu.Kebanyakan muziknya hanya berlatarbelakangkan gendang,rebana dan bongo sahaja.Suaranya yang merdu itu memudahkan pendengar untuk menghayati lirik-lirik yang disampaikan.Rentak nasyidnya pula bersahaja dan hanya mementingkan cara penyampaian agar pendengar dapat 'lekatkannya' di dalam hati.
Siapa Zain Bhikha sebenarnya?Jom kita siasat...:)
Zain Bhikha, born August 9, 1974, is a South African singer-songwriter, who has achieved fame as a performer of nasheed songs. Tied to other prominent Muslim entertainers, including Yusuf Islam and Dawud Wharnsby Ali, Bhikha has collaborated on albums with other artists, and has released several solo albums as well. He has written several religious albums concerning Islam.
Bhikha may best be known outside of the Muslim community by his performance with his drummer and several backup vocalists who are most famous for being the African singers in the famous Disney cartoon movie The Lion King.
Bhikha's music almost exclusively follows Islamic themes, with only voice and drums being used, since the use of musical instruments other than the voice and the drum is an area of debate in Muslim jurisprudence, considered harām, or "unlawful" by a significant number of people in the Muslim community. His voice is unmistakable; it is high and sweet, with an overall feeling of gentleness. He has mastered the art of harmony, and is proficient as both a lead vocalist and as a singer of backing vocals. While not a falsetto, the timbre of his voice sounds higher than that of most performers. It has been compared to the singing voice of Western pop musician Michael Jackson.
Antara lagu Zain Bhikha adalah:A is for Allah,Allah knows,Praise to the prophet,heart of a Muslim dan banyak lagi.Di bawah,saya sertakan lagu Praise to the Prophet,tapi ini bukan video klip beliau.Saya memilih lagu ini kerana,
YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO IT..IT'S SUPERB!:D
e)Dawud Wharnsby Ali
Penyanyi nasyid ini pula kebanyakan lagunya berlatarkan bunyi gitar.Genre muziknya pula lebih kepada pop dan ballade.Iramanya sangat relaks dan bersahaja.Seronok untuk didengar.
Sedikit sebanyak maklumat tentang beliau.....
Dawud (David) Wharnsby Ali (born June 27, 1972) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, poet, performer, educator and television personality. He is best known for his pioneering efforts in the musical/poetic genre of English Language nasheed. Dawud Wharnsby is also lyricist, vocalist and guitarist of the folk music duo Dawud & Idris, alongside composer Idris Phillips.Wharnsby makes a strong differentiation between the application of Qur'anic teachings to his life-style and what he perceives as a general misconception that he "converted" from the "religion" of "Christianity" to the "religion" of "Islam" in 1993.
Wharnsby's songs have also found their way onto the recordings of other notable artists. His popular children's songs "Sing, Children of The World!" and "Al Khaliq" were both covered by Yusuf Islam & Friends on the 2004 CD "I Look I See" (Jamal Records) and his song "A Whisper of Peace" was included by Canadian children's performer Chris McKhool on the CD "Celebrate!".
Antara lagu beliau adalah:Out seeing the fields,Full of humility,Madinah tun Nabi,What did I do today? dan banyak lagi.
Penyanyi nasyid yang berasal daripada Tanah Arab ini mempunyai suara yang unik!Suara 'husky' dan sangat lain dari yang lain.Imejnya yang sentiasa berjubah mampu untuk membuka mata semua orang yang beliau juga mampu menyanyi.Genre muziknya pula lebih cenderung kepada ballade disamping liriknya yang kebanyakkannya berbahasa Arab,namun terdapat juga beberapa lagu yang berbahasa Inggeris.

Jangan terkejut kalau group hip-hop ini sebenarnya adalah artis nasyid antarabangsa.Mereka mahu mendekati anak muda sekarang supaya mengenali dan menghayati Islam.Bukan mudah untuk berdakwah.So siapa yang suka rentak hip-hop tapi pada yang sama perlukan hiburan Islami,cubalah dengar lagu Native Deen!
Siapa pemuda hip-hop Islamik ini?
They consist of three young Muslim men who were born and raised in America. Joshua Salaam, Naeem Muhammad, and Abdul-Malik Ahmad who grew up in Washington, DC. Their music seeks to inspire young people to keep their faith amid the pressures and temptations of modern life.
Their music is hip-hop style, with lyrics on Islam and several of their songs focus on living as a Muslim in America amidst pressures and temptations.Their music typifies the subgenre "positive hip-hop".The main instruments are drums, synthesized percussion instruments, and vocals.
Antara lagu mereka adalah:Not afraid to stand alone,Small Deeds,My intention,Sakina dan banyak lagi.
Outlandish juga merupakan grup hip-hop nasyid.Subhanallah!Melalui hip hop juga kita boleh berdakwah..Walaupun rentaknya catchy dan hip hop,liriknya sarat dengan dakwah.Grup ini terkenal dengan colaborationnya dengan artis nasyid lain seperti Sami Yusuf.So youngsters..we can bring Islam wherever we go!;)
Jom kita dekati siapa mereka...
Outlandish are a multi-award winning hip-hop group based in Denmark. Formed in 1997, they consist of Isam Bachiri (born in Denmark and of Moroccan background), Waqas Ali Qadri (born in Denmark and of Pakistani background), and Lenny Martinez (born in Honduras, and is of Cuban and Honduran descent.). All three members are devoutly religious, Isam and Waqas being Muslims, and Lenny being Catholic. The band members live in Brøndby Strand.
Outlandish's hip-hop/R&B/soul music sound takes influences from their various backgrounds (Moroccan/Arab/Amazigh, Pakistani/Punjabi and Latin American), and although their songs are primarily in English, they usually feature lyrics in Spanish, Urdu/Punjabi, Danish, and Arabic. All these influences make the music of Outlandish somewhat unique and this is easy to notice from the variety of genres covered in their albums. Outlandish often include themes about Islam and contemporary issues facing young Muslims in the west in their music, and sometimes their songs define a unique nasheed-like urban genre.
Antara lagunya adalah:Aisha,Look into my eyes,I only ask of God dan banyak lagi.
Kali pertama saya mengenali beliau apabila saya mendengar lagu Rahmanur Rahim.MasyaAllah,lagunya sangat bagus dan catchy!Memandangkan beliau berasal daripada India,beliau telah menyelitkan unsur muzik dari sana melalui lagu-lagunya.Kebanyakkan lagu beliau mempunyai rentak yang menghiburkan disamping liriknya yang penuh dengan dakwah.Siapa yang sukakan nasyid yang catchy dan lain daripada yang lain,you should listen to him.
Berikut adalah sedikit sebanyak tentang munsyid daripada India ini..^__^
Nazeel was born in August 1981. He was born into a Muslim family and continues to follow it having read up on it and, more importantly, having spent time with good Muslims. He grew up in London and Manchester, UK.These days, he has discovered many more meaningful songs that really move him. Mainly these are uplifting songs by people like: Sami Yusuf, Kareem Salama, Angelis, Garth Brooks, Raihan, Il Divo, Jackson Browne, Muhammad Husayan, Outlandish and Ronan Keating.
He has been taught aspects of 'Islam' since childhood, and says he considers it to have a role in his music. A role that he sees as one that will unite communities in mutual benefit rather than divide them.His music at times has some specific messages; different people will pick up different things. Generally speaking though, the songs are about human values that have kept us going in the world. He believes these values originate from God and at other times, it is just a feeling.
Antara lagunya:Rahmanur rahim,realisation,ishara,salam,traveller dan banyak lagi.
Di bawah adalah video klip Rahmanur Rahim.
Inilah sebahagian daripada para munsyid antarabangsa.Selain yang saya sebut di atas,ada banyak lagi antaranya Mecca to Madina,Rashid Bikha,Muhammad al-Husayn,Muhammad Ubaid,Soldier of Allah dan banyak lagi.
So kesimpulannya,nasyid adalah hiburan rohani yang boleh mendidik jiwa.Melalui nasyid juga kita boleh menghayati Islam dengan lebih dekat,menambahkan rasa cinta dan rindu pada Sang Khaliq dan Muhammad utusan terakhir.
Dulu,saya mengakui saya tidak berapa meminati nasyid kerana bagi saya muziknya ketinggalan,rentaknya yang terlalu sinonim dan mendayu serta tiada unsur 'hip n enjoy'.Tetapi setelah diberi hidayah dan dibukakan pintu hati,saya mula sedar yang hiburan yang 'hip n enjoy' itulah yang telah membawa saya jauh dari landasan sebenar,jauh dari Pencipta saya.Muzik yang keterlaluan dan lirik yang lagho(lalai) itu mampu menghitamkan hati sedikit demi sedikit tanpa kita sedari kerana kita sering mengalunkan 'zikir-zikir lagho' itu iaitu lirik-lirik lagu yang melalaikan.Bagi saya,memilih muzik @ hiburan juga perlu teliti sebagaimana kita teliti terhadap permakanan kita kerana jika kita tersilap 'makan',hati akan gelap.Jadi,marilah kita mendekati nasyid :)
