Thanks Sami Yusuf.
The above is from a concert I attended. The atomsphere was fabeoulus full of enthusiam, felt like big islamic social event rather than a concert per se, old people, kids, families, everybody was there. The concert basically was 10.000 muslem gathering and was very positive, It was in the middle of concert when they said there are 3000 muslem waiting, queueing outside for tickets !!!afetr tickets and charity funds collection the concert resulted in 100,000 Pounds for muslems in Darfour.
The moment of Sami yusuf enterance was amaaaaaaaaazing. Iam sure if he was the head of UN he wouldn't have had such round of applause and welcome by the audiance. It was like contineous half an hour of warm warm applause and yelling that I never ever heard such thing before, bouts of that were countineous throughout the concert. there were other singers and bands from UK, US, Canada, Denmark. The most popular one was the Outlandish Rap band. young girls here seem to be mad of this band as I noticed.
I liked to have such nice Islamic, recreational, social, well organised events with 10,000 person saying Ya Allah at once. However; I couldn't be very relax about the way teenage girls reacted to the music quite few times, I just felt ...this is not the place, u can not screem jumping for such phrases Like la Elah Ella Allah, and ya
7abibi ya Muhammed, for example.
Having said that; I must say I enjoyed it so much. I liked the kids with their parents playing with the fountains's water outside the concert hall, I just felt like Eid which I really missed this year. Thanks Sami Yusuf.
