From Maher Zain’s official website (via The Muslim Issue):
Maher Zain is a Swedish R&B singer, songwriter & music producer of Lebanese origin. He released 2 albums with Awakening Records, Thank You Allah (2009) & Forgive Me (2012). Maher worked in New York with internationally renowned producer RedOne (Akon, Lady Gaga, etc) but he chose instead to make music that reflects his roots.
The party line is that Muslims, especially Western Muslims hate ISIS because 99.99% of Western Muslims are “moderate” and ISIS is, as we all know an extreme, fundamentalist, perverted perversion of Islam with no more connection to that exalted monotheistic faith than, say, the Westboro Baptist Church has to Episcopalians.
