Tala al badru alayna sung by Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens)

This is Yusuf Islam's rendition of a very old traditional nasheed (song) about the Prophet Muhammad. It is sung during Ramadhan and the Eid... in fact, it is an Eid or Festival song that can be heard during any Eid.

Yusuf Islam is Cat Stevens, but the song is from the Arab Nation.

'Ummi' by Ahmad Qaboor

Many wonderful musicians have performed their own interpretations of this song. Marcel Khalife, Khaled Al Habr and Ahmad Qaboor. This is Ahmad Qaboor's version, and one of my own favourites.
