In conjunction with the month of Prophet Muhammad’s birthday (Maulidur Rasul), Muslim.Sg produced its first music video ‘Kau Yang Kenalkan Cinta’ (‘You Taught Us Love’) to inspire fellow Muslims to follow in Prophet Muhammad s.a.w’s footsteps and show love and mercy to all of God’s creations.
The soulful pop-R&B song was written and composed by award-winning music producer, composer and singer Reyza Hamizan, and singer-songwriter Bakti Khair. Joining them is pianist Nabillah Jalal, the first Malay Singaporean to graduate from London’s prestigious Royal College of Music.
Building a loving community that uplifts one another starts with educating children. In this music video, a father, played by singer-actor Syarif, leads by example to teach his son, Umar, values that are synonymous with Prophet Muhammad’s.
The scenes in the video are based on Prophet Muhammad’s sunnah. Inspired by Prophet Muhammad’s mercy and compassion towards children, Syarif plays and interacts with Umar happily.
Umar observes intently as his father helps an elderly ice-cream seller who was struggling with the umbrella at his cart.
When Syarif and Umar come across a dog sitting in the hot sun, they feed it water.
The video ends at the mosque where they pray together. While Syarif does the zikir, Umar runs around and plays.
