Maher Zain is NOT a REVERT


Maher Zain, my new addiction.
I am not a big fan of any singers but this guy really amazed me with his beautiful and magnificent voice. Now, he is becoming a phenomenon in Malaysia. Well I am not kinda person who like to memorize any song's lyrics and I tend to create my own lyric if I forgot the lyrics. Hehe. However this guy made me to memorize lyrics from his songs! Well not all the lyrics but still I am trying. Frankly speaking I am not a music maniac!

Why his songs is so special? The reason is because of his religious song. Truly awesome. And I fall in love with all his songs! If you wish to listen to his songs, you can do that here.

And this is his full biography.

Maher’s first musical inspiration came from his father, who was a singer himself, performing locally in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Tripoli – Lebanon. Fascinated by the music and instruments, Maher got his first keyboard when he was only ten and ever since music officially became part of Maher’s world.

The family moved to Sweden when Maher was only 8, where he continued his schooling, and later entered university and got a Bachelors Degree in Aeronautical Engineering. With things changing around him, one thing remained the same – his strong passion for music. He would spend late nights at school with his friends where they would sing, rap, compose and experiment with music in every way. It didn’t take him long to realize that music became an integral part of who he is.

After being involved for a while in the music scene in Sweden as a music producer, Maher was introduced to RedOne, a gifted music producer who was fast rising in the music scene in Sweden. Maher started working with RedOne with Swedish artists, and later moved with him to New York. For a few years he was in the middle of the hot rush of the NY music industry, working with chart topping artists such as Kat Deluna on her debut album which included smash hits ‘Whine up’ and ‘Run the Show’.

Maher had what many would describe as a dream job for someone so young in such a glamorous business, but for Maher it felt like this was far from what he would call ‘the dream’, “I loved the music but I hated everything that surrounded it, it always felt like something wasn’t right”. RedOne was on the verge of breaking into the big time, going on to work with artists like Akon, Lady Gaga, Enrique Iglesias, Brandy, New Kids on the Block, and Michael Jackson to mention just a few, and becoming one of the most sought-after music producers in the world.

Maher however was restless and eventually decided that the music industry and all that surrounded wasn’t the right place for him and he returned to Sweden. It wasn’t until he met a group of brothers who were active in the Islamic community in Stockholm and he started regularly attending his local mosque that he felt like he’d reached ‘home’.

Maher feels blessed to able to finally find the right way, and feels like it’s his turn now to help others through his music to do the same: “If I had one thing I’d like to tell people out there it would be that it’s so easy to see the right way if we just open our eyes and look properly; that’s what happened to me.”

The question now is, is Maher Zain a revert or he is originally Muslim.
Well this question kept wondering in my mind until this morning I got the answer.
I asked Maher Zain through FACEBOOK and he did answer my question!


However, when I tried to view his comment its gone! LOL! Why??? Hahaha.
So I checked my email and I found this.

The ANSWER to my question.
He is not a REVERT, so for his fans do not make any speculations anymore.
Maher Zain is a MUSLIM. Pure Muslim.
And I hope this entry can clarify everything. :)
