|About Zain Bhikha
Zain Bhikha is one of the most successful Islamic singers today and has inspired fans the world over with his uplifting messages of hope. As a singer, songwriter, and through creative workshops and television, Zain serves as an ambassador for promoting a positive picture of his faith while simultaneously delivering messages of unity among nations, and global peace through his various projects.
From the time that Zain recorded his first album in 1994, his experience as an artist has grown tremendously, increasing his exposure in his country of birth, South Africa, as well as globally. Zain remains a pioneer in the ‘nasheed’ genre of music, where, as one of the first English Islamic singers, he opened the door for many other artists. His albums have been launched in many countries and regions, including the United Kingdom, North America, Malaysia, France, Turkey, Holland, India, the Middle East, and Australia. He has performed live in cities across most continents and has become a household name when it comes to spiritual music.
Over and above his individual endeavors, Zain has also collaborated with a long list of artists such as Dawud Wharnsby, Native Deen, Outlandish, Sami Yusuf, Raihaan, Khalid Belhrouzhi, Ahmed Bukhatir, Imad Rami, Ziryab, Khalil Ismail, and not forgetting his mentor, Yusuf Islam. His songs are mainly self-written, driven by emotion and the need to reassure people that turning and submitting to the Almighty is the hope that mankind needs for the core of our everyday questions and confusion. Many of his songs represent different times in his life and the lessons he has learned through personal experience. Zain’s songs provide young and old with an alternative to mainstream music, carrying messages of faith and remembrance of God. His music promotes spiritual contemplation and encourages people to be proud of their beliefs, proud of who they are, and to work towards a better world.
Despite his fame and success as international nasheed artist, Zain does not profit at all from his efforts: everything is done solely for charity, masha’ Allah. May Allah accept all his works.
