Songs have a powerful influence on the way we think. Sadly, most of the entertainment we find in our culture guides us towards escapism, rather than inspiring us to celebrate Allah's signs and hopefully carry on with life's tests and trials. For this reason, many of us, especially, our children, need an alternative to the aggressive and immodest styles of music which dominate the current airwaves and television music stations. A Whisper of Peace is that welcomed alternative.
This recording is a beautiful collection of songs by Canadian Muslim artist and educator Dawud Wharnsby Ali. An expression of his love for Qur'anic teachings, these vibrant songs help listeners feel the gentle beauty of Islam, and understand simple purity of faith. They are sure to re-awaken the natural inclination towards God in all of us!
Beyond offering great entertainment through Wharnsby Ali's strong and insprational voice, A Whisper of Peace also allows the listener to learn more about different aspects of Islam, like prayer, Eid and Hajj, in a simple and fun manner. All tracks have been produced utilizing only simple hand-drums and vocals.

Some examples include:
"Takbir (Days of Eid)": Wharnsby Ali cheerfully shares the joy of the days of Eid, along with the praise of Allah that forms part of the holiday's practices. This is sure to put you and your children in the Eid mood. Play it while you're driving to Eid prayer, on the day of your Eid party or in preparing for the holiday.
"Here We Come": Wharnsby, himself a Hajji, enthusiastically shares the joy of Hajj, the pilgrimage to Makkah. A delightful song to play when teaching your kids about this journey of a lifetime and during a class presentation about Hajj or on Eid-ul-Adha to remember those making the pilgrimmage at that time.
"Animals Love to Hear Qur'an": a fun little song which your kids can sing along to in their car on the way to the zoo, or to school. It's almost sure to become their favorite, and will also inspire them to practice their recitation of Qur'an!
This CD is a wonderful gift for children, who learn many of their ideas and values through songs. It also makes a nice addition to the audio collection of anyone looking for a Halal and fun alternative to current mainstream entertainment.
