Singing Star Maher Zain Releases New Single For Ramadan

Zain misses seeing and singing along with fans around world, but says staying safe is most important for all.

Singing star Maher Zain's latest single Antassalam released for Muslim holy month of Ramadan, and its video has been viewed nearly 3 million times on YouTube.
"We always plan to release a song in Ramadan. And this one will go down as extra special because it will always remind us of the tough times that our world faced due to the situation with the coronavirus," Zain, a Lebanese-born Swedish R&B singer, songwriter, and music producer told Anadolu Agency.
His single Antassalam was released on May 2 and on May 16 he released Asma Allah Alhusna (The 99 Most Beautiful Names of Allah).
"I've always wanted to record Asma Allah Alhusna (The 99 Most Beautiful Names of Allah) - with this beautiful timeless melody composed by Sayed Mekawy - ever since I started reconnecting with my faith some 12 years ago," he wrote on YouTube under the video.
"This Ramadan, while spending more time at home than usual since all our mosques and everything else has been shut down due to COVID-19, I finally decided to do it and put it out as a small Ramadan gift from me to you all. I hope you like it. Please remember me and my family in your prayers. Ramadan Mubarak!," he added.
Zain -- who also sings in seven languages, including Turkish, Arabic, and French -- explained to Anadolu Agency the reason behind the new videos: "We felt the need of trying to cheer people up and help them to stay positive and to remind them that one day all of this will be over and we can go back to normal again inshaAllah!"
Ramadan under quarantine
On being under quarantine during Ramadan due to novel coronavirus, the 38-year-old singer said: "I'm actually enjoying this Ramadan a lot!"
"There's no doubt that I'm missing the traditions such as praying Taraweeh in the mosques and reconnecting with people that I haven't seen for a while, having Iftar with family and friends and last but not least, my yearly visit to Medina which I love so much! But other than that Alhamdulillah for the blessings of Ramadan!"
Zain said that he was trying to "spend some quality time with my family, fixing some stuff around the house, catching up on some songs that I've been working on in my music studio!"
"And also I'm trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle by working out a lot!" he added.
On his future projects, Zain said: "We released my Ramadan single 'Antassalam' and also my Ramadan gift Asma Allahul Husna, and now I'm working on another single that I'm very much looking forward to releasing in the coming months inshaAllah!
"I miss seeing and singing along with my fans all over the world, but staying safe is what's important for all of us right now, so we meet each other soon again inshaAllah," he added.
The pandemic has claimed more than 333,000 lives in 188 countries and regions since originating in China last December. -
