View Full Version : Resurrecting Cat Stevens

01-28-2016, 12:01 PM
In a daring article published in the Telegraph, Yusuf Islam opens up on his reasons for a return to music. In one line he says, ‘they told me to stop playing and take up learning. I tell them listen to me, this is our culture which we have lost touch with’.- This is cat Steven’s aka Yusuf Islam’s come back line in the telegraph article published by him in response to his critics read here. A some what plausible attempt to make-believe this is the only intended reason for the article. However, the under-current theme is a public relations venture. After 36 years of absence from the music scene, Yusuf Islam has come back all guns blazing. With recent sold-out gigs across England and a new biography out, Yusuf is going all out to promote his new image; a trendy 67-year-old Muslim cool guy. With a crew cut jacket and pair of bleached out jeans, it is clear Yusuf is reminiscent of his former days and somewhat regretful in putting down his guitar in the first place. He seems to be a man of ambiguity, the first to introduce the nasheed industry to the Muslim world with classics like ‘A is for Allah’ and ‘Salatullah’, he is now also the first to throw open the doors to mainstream music for aspiring new age, white-collar type Muslims; Yusuf is the Noah leading his flock from the tyranny of fanatical muzlims!The sold out gigs are being seen as a first in a long line of music shows he plans to hold here in the UK and across the world in his world tour. Whether in UK or elsewhere the man is clearly paving the way to ‘normalize’ music, dance and fan groupies; a dedicated loyal group of fans willing to follow their idol anywhere and everywhere they can............http://mybeliefs.co.uk/2014/11/10/re...g-cat-stevens/

What are the reasons and who are responsible for his return to stage?I think us Muslims are very much responsible for his return to the world of the music.Modern scholars assert on radical reform in established rulings in the name of cultural things. They want to change Islamic teachings in accordance with the on going trend in the world.
