Assalam/Sholam Alekum! May Peace be on you!
If you have visited Peacebook before, you must have noticed the major upgrade it has received. I thought, why not celebrate this upgrade in a way that leads us closer to our Creator (God Almighty). So I selected some of my favorite Halal melodies to share with you all.

Ahmed Bukhatir is an internationally renowned singer. Though majority of his songs are in Arabic, his English songs are equally melodious. But before proceeding to his songs, lets enjoy a minute with Yusuf Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens.

Adhan (the call to prayer) by Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens)
The translation of Adhan (the call to prayer) is:
God is the Greatest. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except God. I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of God. Come to prayer! Come to success! God is the Greatest. There is none worthy of worship except God.

At first, I had decided to include only the English songs by Ahmed Bukhatir, but it would have been a great injustice not to include his best song.

Iqra by Ahmed Bukhatir
Iqra means to read, recite or proclaim. In fact, it was the first word revealed to prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him). Archangel Gabriel commanded the prophet by saying Iqra -"Read". He replied, "I am not learned." Fulfilling the prophesy of the coming of the last prophet in Isaiah 29:12. 
"And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned."

Forgive me by Ahmed Bukhatir
A touchy song reminding us to use all our abilities rightly and ask God for forgiveness for misusing any of them. And to constantly thank God for them for we are able to walk, talk, see as compared to those who suffer from disabilities.

Hijab by Ahmed Bukhatir
Hijab protects the modesty of women and prevents molestation. Suppose there are twin sisters who are equally beautiful. One of the sisters is wearing the Western clothes the short skirts and minis while the other is wearing the Islamic Hijab. They both are walking down the street and on the corner of the street a hooligan, a goon is waiting to tease a girl. So which sister will he tease the one wearing the Western clothes or the one wearing the Islamic Hijab, complete body covered except the face and hands till the wrists? Naturally he will tease the sister wearing the Western clothes. So Hijab prevents molestation.

Last Breath by Ahmed Bukhatir
This life is a test for the hereafter and death means time is over. The only thing that awaits us is either the reward of our good or the consequence of our evil and there is no returning back to this life and life in the hereafter would either be eternal satisfaction or eternal regret.

Don't let me go! by Ahmed Bukhatir
Describing a man regretting his bad deeds in this life. He asks for one more chance, but it is all over. So don't let your fate be such. Be quick to accept the truth as soon as you recognize.

Seems you are enjoying yourself, so why not invite others. Please take 5 seconds to share!
