Ramadan is the time for reflection and prayer. With that comes a healthy dose of spirituality served through music and anasheed (Muslims Hymns). That's why you see this promo video and Maher Zain is smiling. After all he is only the Muslim world's top selling musician who makes very fine music.
This time he went to Chicago and filmed his upcoming music video Ya Nabi Sala Alayka, prayer be upon you prophet. This is a new look for Maher, but that should not be the topic, the topic here is the poetic lyrics voiced by Maher Zain.
This guy is huge in Europe, Arabia and North America, following in the road paved by Sami Yousef (Yousef Islam before him) who made this kind of music cool again. Maher took this form of singing and made it big in the social media with virtually everyone.
