???? Siapa yang tidak suka dengan nasyid dan liriknya…hmmmm.. saya rasa semuanya suka🙂. Ia datang sebagai musisi Islami yang membawa nafas baru dalam dunia religi dengan lirik dan irama yang menyentuh kalbu. Maher Zain lahir pada tahun 1982 di Libanon. Keluarganya pindah ke Swedia ketika Maher zain  berumur delapan tahun, di mana ia melanjutkan sekolahnya. Maher Zain mampu menguasai keyboard pertama ketika ia berumur sepuluh tahun. Dia kemudian memasuki Universitas dan mendapat gelar sarjana dalam Aeronautical Engineering selama masa remajanya, dia menghabiskan malam sampau larut dengan teman-teman sekolahnya di mana mereka bernyanyi, rap, menulis dan bereksperimen dengan musik dalam segala hal. Musik yang di bawakan oleh Maher Zain terinspirasi oleh sang ayah yang juga seorang musisi handal di kota Tripoli, Lebanon.

Bakat musik Maher Zain telah terlihat semenjak ia masih muda dengan menjadi produser musik di Swedia. Namun menurut Maher Zain, dunia musik yang ia geluti yang menawarkan banyak kemewahan membuat ia merasa ada yang kurang, dan bahkan ada yang salah. “Saya sangat mencintai dunia musik, namun saya tidak menyukai hal-hal yang ada di sekilingnya, seperti ada yang salah dengan hal ini.”

Pada akhirnya Maher Zain menemukan jawaban dari keraguannya dalam bermusik setelah ia bertemu dan tergabung dalam Komunitas Muslim yang ada di Stockholm. Semenjak itu Maher Zain pun mulai aktif dalam kegiatan-kegiatan yang dilakukan di masjid dan Ia merasa di sinilah arti sebuah rumah baginya.

Maher Zain merasa bersyukur akhirnya dapat menemukan cara yang tepat, dan Ia merasa sekarang gilirannya untuk membantu orang lain melalui musik untuk melakukan hal yang sama. “Jika aku punya satu hal yang mana aku ingin sampaikan kepada orang di luar sana, bahwa sangatlah mudah untuk melihat jalan yang benar jika kita hanya membuka mata dan melihat dengan benar, itu yang terjadi padaku.”(kata beliau)

Di bawah ini, merupakan lirik2 nasyid yang dibawakan oleh Maher zain… selain melodinya enak di denger… kata-kata yang terkandungnya juga penuh makna kehidupan… so bisa dijadikan ajang refleksi diri :)… okeh…. check it out

For The Rest Of my Life-Maher Zain

I praise Allah for sending me you my love
You found me home and sail with me
And I`m here with you
Now let me let you know
You`ve opened my heart
I was always thinking that love was wrong
But everything was changed when you came along
OOOOO
And theres a couple words I want to say

Chorus:
For the rest of my life
I`ll be with you
I`ll stay by your side honest and true
Till the end of my time
I`ll be loving you.loving you
For the rest of my life
Thru days and night
I`ll thank Allah for open my eyes
Now and forever I…I`ll be there for you

I know that deep in my heart
I feel so blessed when I think of you
And I ask Allah to bless all we do
You`re my wife and my friend and my strength
And I pray we`re together eternally
Now I find myself so strong
Everything changed when you came along
OOOO
And theres a couple word I want to say
*Repeat Chorus
I know that deep in my heart now that you`re here
Infront of me I strongly feel love
And I have no doubt
And I`m singing loud that I`ll love you eternally

Repeat Chorus
I know that deep in my heart..

Lagu ni best sgt..hu2~

maher zain ‘awaken’

We were given so many prizes
We changed the desert into oasis
We built buildings of different lengths and sizes
And we felt so very satisfied
We bought and bought
We couldn’t stop buying
We gave charity to the poor ’cause
We couldn’t stand their crying
We thought we paid our dues
But in fact
To ourselves we’re just lying

Oh…I’m walking with my head lowered in shame from my place
I’m walking with my head lowered from my race
Yes it’s easy to blame everything on the west
When in fact all focus should be on ourselves

We were told what to buy and we’d bought
We went to London, Paris and
We made show we were seen in the most exclusive shops
Yes we felt so very satisfied

We felt our money gave us infinite power
We forgot to teach our children about history and honor
We didn’t have any time to lose
When we were.. (were)
So busy feeling so satisfied

I’m walking with my head lowered in shame from my place
I’m walking with my head lowered from my race
Yes it’s easy to blame everything on the west
When in fact all focus should be on ourselves

We became the visuals without a soul
despite the heat
Our homes felt so empty and cold
To fill the emptiness
We bought and bought
Maybe all the fancy cars
And blink will make us feel satisfied

My dear brother and sister
It’s time to change inside
Open your eyes
Don’t throw away what’s right aside
Before the day comes
When there’s nowhere to run and hide
Now ask yourself ’cause Allah’s watching you

Is He satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied?

Oh..I’m walking with my head lowered in shame from my place
I’m walking with my head lowered from my race
Yes it’s easy to blame everything on the west
When in fact all focus should be on ourselves

Insya Allah

Everytime you feel like you cannot go on
You feel so lost
That your so alone
All you is see is night
And darkness all around
You feel so helpless
You can`t see which way to go
Don`t despair and never loose hope
Cause Allah is always by your side

Insya Allah3x
Insya Allah you`ll find your way

Everytime you can make one more mistake
You feel you can`t repent
And that its way too late
Your`re so confused,wrong decisions you have made
Haunt your mind and your heart is full of shame

Don`t despair and never loose hope
Cause Allah is always by your side
Insya Allah3x
Insya Allah you`ll find your way
Insya Allah3x
Insya Allah you`ll find your way

Turn to Allah
He`s never far away
Put your trust in Him
Raise your hands and pray
OOO Ya Allah
Guide my steps don`t let me go astray
You`re the only one that showed me the way,
Showed me the way 2x
Insya Allah3x
Insya Allah we`ll find the way

Open Your Eyes

look around yourselves
cant you see this wonder
spreaded in front of you
the clouds floating by
the skies are clear and blue
planets in the orbits
the moon and the sun
such perfect harmony
let’s start question in ourselves
isnt this proof enough for us
or are we so blind
to push it all aside
no[chorus]
we just have to
open our eyes, our hearts, and minds
if we just look bright to see the signs
we cant keep hiding from the truth
let it take us by suprise
take us in the best way
[allah]
guide us every single day
[allah]
keep us close to you
until the end of timelook inside yourselves
such a perfect order
hiding in yourselves
running i your veins
what about anger love and pain
and all the thing you are feeling
can you touch them with your hand
so are they really there
lets start question in ourselves
isnt this proof enough for us
or are we so blind
to push it all aside
no[chorus]

when a baby’s born
so helpless and weak
and you are watching him growing
so why deny
whats in front of your eyes
the biggest miracle of life

[chorus]

you created everything
we belong to you
Ya Rabb we raised our hand
Forever we thank you

Freedom

Gathered here with my family
My neighbours and my friends
Standing firm together against oppression holding hands
It doesn’t matter where you’re from
Or if you’re young, old, women or man
We’re here for the same reason; we want to take back our landOh God thank you
For giving us the strength to hold on
And now we’re here togetherCalling you for freedom, freedom
We know you can hear our call ooh
We’re calling for freedom, fighting for freedom
We know you won’t let us fall oh
We know you’re here with usNo more being prisoners in our homes
No more being afraid to talk
Our dream is just to be free, just to be free
Now when we’ve taking our first step
Towards a life of complete freedom
We can see our dream getting closer and closer, we’re almost there

I can feel the pride in the air
And it makes me strong to see everyone
Standing together holding hands in unity
Shouting out load demanding their right for freedom
This is it and we’re not backing of
Oh God we know you hear our call

Hold My Hand

I hear the flower’s kinda crying loud
The breeze’s sound in sad
Oh no
Tell me when did we become,
So cold and empty inside
Lost a way long time ago
Did we really turn out blind
We don’t see that we keep hurting each other no
All we do is just fight

Now we share the same bright sun,
The same round moon
Why don’t we share the same love
Tell me why not
Life is shorter than most have thought

Hold my hand
There are many ways to do it right
Hold my hand
Turn around and see what we have left behind
Hold my hand my friend
We can save the good spirit of me and you
For another chance
And let’s pray for a beautiful world
A beautiful world I share with you

Children seem like they’ve lost their smile
On the new blooded playgrounds
Oh no
How could we ignore
heartbreaking crying sounds
And we’re still going on
Like nobody really cares
And we just stopped feeling all the pain because
Like it’s a daily basic affair

No matter how far I might be
I’m always gonne be your neighbor
There’s only one small planet where to be
So I’m always gonna be your neighbor
We cannot hide, we can’t deny
That we’re always gonna be neighbors
You’re neighbor, my neighbor
We’re neighbors

So hold my hand
There are many ways to do it right
Hold my hand
Turn around and see what have left behind

So hold my hand
There are many ways to do it right
Hold my hand
Turn around and see what have left behind
Hold my hand my friend
We can save the good spirit of me and you
For another chance
And let’s pray for a beautiful world
A beautiful world I share with you
