Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un (‘Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return'), [The Holy Qur'an, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 156].
All of humanity is united by a cosmic journey through life. Mankind is constantly in a state of pilgrimage. Whether from home to work, from a prayer to another, visiting a friend, the sick, a scholar, we are reminded of the ultimate journey back to our Lord.
While our lives originate from God Almighty and may take sometimes wondrous or unexpected turns, the script must eventually end. Whatever the degree of our perception, time ebbs and flows, filling us with joy or sorrow, until our souls return to its Beloved Creator. Pilgrims we all are, seeking nourishment for the soul that desires nothing more than to taste the fruits of the primordial garden which it once relished.
Simulating life, the Pilgrimage (Hajj) represents man’s tumultuous struggle from the darkness of this world to the light of Divine beauty. In a world that has emptied out its spirituality, mankind now thirsts for the serenity that comes from loving his Creator.
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is our guide who illuminates the path to all that pleases God Almighty. For this we are eternally grateful and praise Almighty God by sending salutations on His esteemed Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
This album seeks to uplift the human spirit and delight the soul with love for the Divine and to remind us to be grateful for the favors we have been blessed with.
