Yusuf Islam

Yusuf Islam was at the ISNA Convention in Washington, DC this year.

I got a shot of him signing his CD An Other Cup.

For those of you "old heads" and non-Muslims, Yusuf Islam is the former Cat Stevens!

Assalamu alaykum sister!

I like Yusuf Islam. I watched a short documentary featuring himself that described his youth, family life and events that led to his reversion to Islam and leaving the music scene. It was awesome. Wish I could find the link!

How are you???

If i had known you were there, I would have stopped to say salam!

Imuslimah are you thinking about the "behind the music" documentary? That's the only one i have seen that really goes into detail about his life and conversion. It came out several years ago and was pretty good.

I read from American Muslima Writer's blog that you had this chance to attend and smiled.

I am so glad to hear that Siraj Wahaj is fighting his cancer. I just love him as I took my Shahada and then attended one of his lectures at UT in 1999.

Hope you got lots of nice scarves and books habibty.

I loved your photo of Yusuf Islam and am amazed that he has started singing again. I don't really know what to make of it. Love you lots!

You don't have to be older to love him. My husband and I are huge fans of his. I always love it when I'm in a store and his music comes on. Always puts a smile on my face.

And he is still just as gorgeous as ever isn't he? (don't tell me you weren't admiring him Safiyah!)

@iMuslimah: Salaams Dear. I'm well, but waaayyy too busy. Insha Allah everything will slow down by Ramadan.

@Muslimah007: Oh wow, I'm sorry I missed you, too :(

@Lisa: I got two fabulous abayas from Dubai! And oh yes, one scarf :)

@Sabi: Okay; busted! Yes! I WAS admiring him (I have other pictures, too, lol) Remember, I was a teenager in the 60s and remember him REAL well.

Hi Sweetie, I just awarded you after remembering you are on the blog break! I LOVED your comments on the swimsuit post. Love you lots.

Wa Alaikum As Salaam Dear Noona:

I'm good, Alhamdulillah. How is school? Are you off for the summer?

Asaalamu Alaikum!!!

Long time not post..for me at least lol! How are you?
My sister saw him at ISNA! His new CD is great! :) My mother was saying that his music still sounds the same from when she was a teenager.
