wonderful voice | Reviewer: Arfiani | 9/28/14
yusuf ... when I open youtube ..... Subhan Allah, I found you, I was so impressed to hear you sing a song (Morning has broken) while playing the guitar ...... it is so wonderful,beautifl song
Have always loved your music. Just saw your 'induction' to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and as you said, one can argue with a philosophy but one can't argue with a good song, and you've sure got lots of those. You are a compelling ambassador for your life style. I have embarked on reading the Qur'an.
Returning home | Reviewer: Abby | 1/6/14
Thank you for your music and thank God for inspiring you. As Rumi would say –“There are many ways to kiss the ground’, and I am happy that you found your true way. Yes, there are lots of people who don’t understand that Muslims believe in Jesus and think you stray away from the Right Path…That’s their issue and not yours..I am happy to see that you have returned home.. but please, just keep producing and playing music, you are making so many people happy and with that- you are serving God... And that is what we are all meant to be doing in our unique way. Peace and Blessings upon you Brother

Love you man and all your music. Leave cat's religion alone. It is not any ones business but his own. Just sit back and enjoy all of his great songs. If more people would mind there own the world might be a better place. Keep on singing CAT I WILL always be listening.
you went back to your gift | Reviewer: je colon | 10/31/13
Islam's holy book states that women are pigs and they will never share heaven with men. Islam makes women the lowest creature. However, Yeshua's torah and new testament glorifies women. You, cannot say you are a muslim and then say your teachings are wrong and your muslim scrolls do not state this. Either you believe Allah and his teachings toward women or you come back to Yeshua. For it is HIS god who gave you your talent and not the false one who has decieved you.
The Essence is what really matters. | Reviewer: Marco Sanches | 9/7/13
Hello, I love your music since I was a young boy, now I'm 44 and loving it even more than ever. For me, it doesn't really matters what religion you're into. It's the beauty of your music which enlightens my life everyday. Rock on, Cat.
I remember being 14 and loving your music, and thinking that you were the best looking Greek Cypriot guy ever! I am Greek. I respect that you are a sensitive and spiritual soul (I am too) and that you embraced a peaceful path in worshipping the Almighty. I am wondering, however, if your path may have been different if your father was a religious Greek Orthodox and had introduced you to the most beautiful Christian mysticism of Mt. Athos. I can definitely see you having found your spiritual and religious path had you visited it before converting to Islam...You have beautiful spiritual roots in the Greek Orthodox faith--explore the true piety of it one day, if for nothing else, to really know the faith of your Greek Cypriot forefathers who died and martyred themselves for it rather than convert. Jesus Christ is awesome...and His philosophy is above any other. Read it and praise Allah for sending Him to the world to save sinners.

Cat Stevens - I love his voice and the way he projects it with heart and soul. He followed his calling and didn't back down in spite of the fame and more he could have had. I was disappointed and kinda angry when he stopped recording songs but it was my own selfishness at the time. I will always love his music.
I am 61 years old and remember the first time I heard Tea for the Tillerman and was instantly hooked on your music. I began to play Guitar and a little Harmonica while in the US Navy. I soon became the Cat Stevens imitator of my circle of friends. (You would have been impressed I think)...I digress..I always seemed to pick up some thread of Spirituality in your music but, it was only about a year ago that I connected the song "The Boy with the Moon and Star on His Head" with your turning to Islam. Am i right? Was that about the time?
I am a Born Again Christian (was saved in 1972), and was terribly disappointed when you became a Muslim. I always felt you would be saved as I am.
I still love your music and pray for you. I felt a connection to you spiritually for years. I hope that someday you (and I know you have heard this before), will turn to Jesus (Yeshua)...
On the Cross His arms are stretched out to receive you.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8&9
God bless you Yusuf,

yusuf, I was touched with your story. I lost my husband so my son and I are on our own. I,m trying to find my way just as you did. I just recently found your music and I'm already a huge fan of your lyrics. I'm inspired by your journey and deeply touched by all you have done. never give up singing, I will always listen.
Hello! gccgeak interesting gccgeak site! I'm really like it! Very, very gccgeak good!
Hello...........I was a fan of Cat Stevens when I was a teenager, I am now 53. The walls of my room in high school were filled with pictures of Cat Stevens........I have every album you ever recorded and still to this day listen to your DVD's but I wonder..........I read the story about when you were trapped in the pacific ocean and thought you were going to die, you said "God, if you save me, I will work for you." and he saved you, you believe he saved you and I believe he saved you. And then you walked away from your music career at the top.....unheard of. You married and did a lot for charities. But I am not sure you totally kept that promise to God. God gives each of us special gifts and he wants so desperately for us to use them. He gave you gifts of poetry and music and you brought those God Given Gifts to millions. When you turned your back on your music, you turned your back on those gifts. When Mohammad Ali converted to Islam he didn't give up boxing. When Kareem Abdul Jabar converted to Islam he didn't give up basketball. And with each one we learned a little more, we were perhaps a little less afraid. I am sad to think about the millions of people you could have touched with your music working for God. You did what you had to do then. But it would have made the world a better place. I am glad to see that you are back singing again. So very glad. It is your gift from God it is where you need to be.
Change Religion | Reviewer: Jessica | 4/22/12
Why did you stop believing in Jesus, People don't understand his purpose we can't go to heaven with out a key!!! Hell was made for the devil not humans but since we fell from his grace meaning prescence of God. We were going in the pit with the fallen Angel. So God had to concord death for us by going in to the pit because death only takes sin (miss the mark) which he has none...You must be invited!!! Can you walk in to a stranger house uninvited. I think not so why do people feel they can ignore and go to heaven when he has rules !!!! Yes I kept books of other religion so I can understand to help people with positive and negative and there's only one God!!!
I grew up listening to your music and now my boys, ages 5,7,9 are appreciating it too. Your music will be passed onto future generations. My 5 year old son listens to "Don't be Shy" daily and wants to learn how to play it on his guitar. Thanks for inspiring my children.
