Maher Zain Biography
Review The Artist (38)
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 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 and later moved 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 including 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”.
In January 2009, Maher Zain decided to work on an album that reflects his identity – Arab, Western and Muslim – and signed with Awakening Records. Maher’s debut album Thank Youa Allah reached the number 1 spot on Amazon’s World Music charts and number 9 on the R&B charts.
In January 2010, in a music competition organized by Nujoom FM (Egypt’s biggest music radion station) Maher’s track ‘Ya Nabi Salam Alayka’ was voted as the best song for 2009. Runners up included big names like Hussein Aljismi, Mohammed Mounir and Sami Yusuf. Maher has already performed at sold out concerts in Algeria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Egypt, England, France, Holland, Sweden, and the US amongst others and is fast becoming the ‘next superstar of Islamic music’.

Assalaamu Alaykum Warakhmat Tullah.
Maher Zain, Algamdulilaah Allah T.A has granted us as human beings reminders like You and the rest of our talented islamic artists. Well sure there are many people saying its haraam yes music is haraam but still the songs you deliver over and the messages you bring across make us realize thaat what you are saying is the truth. I always think to myself that there's a reason for everything well my thought about you is that Maybe Allah(swt) put you on this doenya for a very special purpose is thatyou could be a reminder cos walahie you are.
I really admire you and not idolise you like many others would say. The 15th December 2013 was one of my happiest moments ever. I was seated very far from where you were but just listening to what you were singing brought me to tears knowing that I'm faulted, I'm flawed and yet you also reminded us that allah will forgive us and won't turn him against us !!
Shukran Jazeelan. May Allah grant you a very good place in jannah ameen and protect you,myself and the whole of the umma against the shaytaan inshallah Ameen.

Music is uh rum | Reviewer: Fatimah | 11/27/13
Dear my brother in Islam maher zain
If you don't know,music is harrumph in different ways. What you're doing is okay,but why don't most of your female actors wear a hijab and a suitable/modest
Ps:why is their a triangle in the awaking records thing before the song.what does it represent.
maher zain | Reviewer: mohamed | 11/21/13
please maher zain I want you to understand thet music is completely haram. you said the you do this to please others and now I am asking you, is Allah pleased with what you are doing. to me, I think no, because all of your songs have to have people with no hijabs on. and, you shaved your beard. And you use music. you also have to pray every single prayer in the mosque even if you are busy because you are a man. please replace music with quran. I know your shocked because no one has ever said something like this to you but this is a benefit. it is a great chance.So please my brother, stop doing these things remember music is you passion since born but it will not help you later on in hereafter my message is what will help you if Allah guides you. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE MY DEAR BROTHER MAHER ZAIN listen to me. may allah guide you in all ways
Fat'hallahu ilayka my brother! | Reviewer: Zahran K. Omary | 11/10/13
Assalaam Alaykum Warahmatuhllah Wabarakaatuh! I have nothing to say except saying I am happy and wish you all the best in everything you do, my brother I came to know your music through my brother in Islam Bro. Khalfan who is the fond of your most, when I was in Singapore I had bought a cd by Raihan which came to be stolen when I reached home, very unfortunately we do not have a Islamic music in our Music Stores here in Tanzania. Since I am looking to travel to Singapore soon I hope I can get some at Arab Street, Sim Lim Tower or People's Park Complex. I just don't know what I should say to justify my saying but Allah Shahid that your music is so touching, full of inspiration and hope this music will always live on, fat'hallahu ilayka my brother!
