Today, I’d like to introduce you to a beautiful art form known as the nasheed.
Islamic-Dictionary.com defines a nasheed as:
A religiously themed song, much like a song of praise, but usually sung without any musical instruments accompanying the performance. Often background tone is derived from numerous people mimicking instruments by humming in tune.
Nasheeds can be in any language, and some of the prettiest ones combine different languages together, reflecting the diversity of the global Muslim ummah (community). While religiously-themed, they often address universal issues and may appeal to people of different faiths and backgrounds.
