DR. SAMI YUSUF BIO

He was born in July 1980 into a musical family, learning to play several instruments at a very young age and demonstrating a keen interest in singing and composing. He studied music at several institutions and with renowned composers and musicians including composers from the Royal Academy of Music in London, one of the world’s most prestigious music institutions. In addition to his education in Western harmonics and composition, Sami has a solid understanding of the Middle Eastern modes (or Maqams) and is thoroughly acquainted and familiar with both East and Western musical traditions.

Since 2003, Sami’s debut album ‘al-Mu’allim’ and his second album ‘My Ummah’ have sold over five million copies worldwide. His concerts have attracted huge audiences across the Middle East, Europe and the United States, including a staggering 250,000 attendance in Istanbul. Sami has been featured by Time Magazine and has appeared on the covers of dozens of other mainstream publications around the world. On 29 October 2010, his official third album 'Wherever You Are' was released.

Sami is devoutly spiritual and often uses his art and music as a means of promoting the messages of love, mercy, peace and tolerance, whilst encouraging the youth to be proud of their identity.


AL MUALIM (THE TEACHER)

We once had a Teacher
The Teacher of teachers,
He changed the world for the better
And made us better creatures,
Oh Allah we’ve shamed ourselves
We’ve strayed from Al-Mu'allim,
Surely we’ve wronged ourselves
What will we say in front him?
Oh Mu'allim...

Chorus
He was Muhammad

salla Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam,
Muhammad, mercy upon Mankind,
He was Muhammad

salla Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam,
Muhammad, mercy upon Mankind,
Teacher of all Mankind.

Abal Qasim ,Ya Habibi ya Muhammad
Ya Shafi'i ya Muhammad
Khayru khalqillahi Muhammad

Ya Mustafa ya Imamal Mursalina
Ya Mustafa ya Shafi'al 'Alamina

(3x)

He prayed while others slept
While others ate he’d fast,
While they would laugh he wept
Until he breathed his last,
His only wish was for us to be
Among the ones who prosper,
Ya Mu'allim peace be upon you,
Truly you are our Teacher,
Oh Mu'allim..

(repeat chorus 1)

Ya Habibi ya Muhammad
Ya Shafi'i ya Muhammad
Ya Rasuli ya Muhammad
Ya Bashiri ya Muhammad
Ya Nadhiri ya Muhammad
'Ishqu Qalbi ya Muhammad
Nuru 'Ayni ya Muhammad


He taught us to be just and kind
And to feed the poor and hungry,
Help the wayfarer and the orphan child
And to not be cruel and miserly,
His speech was soft and gentle,
Like a mother stroking her child,
His mercy and compassion,
Were most radiant when he smiled

(repeat chorus)

Mualim…
