Mic Righteous


i don't personally listen to music anymore and haven't for some time. saying that every now and then i stumble across a piece of music that appeals to me because of the lyrics themselves.

i believe music is haram but i do sometimes listen to a certain song because of what the person is saying in their lyrics. do you think it makes me a hypocrite by doing this.

i always tell my friends to stop listening to music but then sometimes, once in a longtime i listen to it just once and enjoy what the person is saying.

Sami Yusuf ---- Try not to cry lyrics :) love this song .....x

You, you're not aware
That we're aware
Of your despair
Don't show your tears
To your oppressor
Don't show your tears

Try not to cry little one
You're not alone
I'll stand by you
Try not to cry little one
My heart is your stone
I'll throw with you

'Ayn Jalut where David slew Goliath
This very same place that we be at
Passing through the sands of times
This land's been the victim of countless crimes
From Crusaders and Mongols
To the present aggression
Then the Franks, now even a crueller oppression
If these walls could speak,
Imagine what would they say

For me in this path that I walk on
There's only one way
Bullets may kill, bones may break
Still I throw stones like David before me and I say


You, you're not aware

Listening to Music

I’m no angel, I’ve sinned, I’m still sinning and I might still be sinning and not be aware of it. But one thing I’ve managed to change about myself is that I don’t listen to music anymore Smile

I never used to then had a low in faith and started listening to it, then felt bad and stopped then started again then stopped then I think I started again and stopped, but you get the picture, I did the yoyo thing.

Ok im not the ultimate un-listener of music…I don’t run out of a room with my hands over my ears, screaming whenever I hear music, I don’t not go into a shop because they are playing some music. I just feel uncomfortable and bad for standing there watching my friends (muslims) move around to the tune…and for me not to be strong enough to actually walk out.

Life Of An Outlaw - Exclusive Interview with Napoleon

Ya'qub Bell & Imaani Aslam

Born and raised on the mean streets of New Jersey, Mutah Wassin Shabazz Beale was only 3 years old when his Muslim parents were murdered in front of him. Brought up by his grandmother he followed in the footsteps of his cousin and older brother and took to selling drugs out on the streets to earn a living. After getting arrested on his first day out on the block he decided to try and find another hustle, another way to make money, so he turned to writing raps.

After travelling to L.A. he was introduced to Tupac Shakur who asked him to join his rap group Outlawz as ‘Napoleon’. Alongside the other Outlawz - which included Kadafi, Kastro, EDI and Hussein - Napoleon appeared on over 40 million records sold worldwide.
