Nasheed – Ya Akhi

This nasheed by Ahmad Bukhatir has often played in my head since I first heard it. For some reason, I always sub-consciously substituted his words of ‘Ya Akhi’ with ‘Ya Allah’, but now that I’ve finally seen the English translation, I realise that it may not be entirely appropriate. I’m not exactly certain as to who he refers to in this nasheed, but I could draw many parallels with the way in which Rasulullah (SAW) is a source of comfort through his teachings and guidance that he left for us. 

The melodious and soothing tone of this nasheed appeals to me. It doesn’t by any means serve as a prayer or religious icon in any way, it just is a nasheed that I’ve grown fond of since the first time I heard it.
