This fourth and final post of Muslims Making Music features Humood al-Khidr, a Kuwaiti artist with a positive message. This video below single-handedly turned my daughter’s life around. It is tough enough being a Muslim in America; add to that being a young girl in America, with all the drama and “complications” that this comes with. Like all girls, my little princess struggles with self-image and living up to the expectations of others; this video made her realize that it really is better to simply “Be Yourself.”
Note, although the lyrics of this song are all in Arabic, the message and story are easy enough to pick up from the video. You could also turn on Closed-Captioning for English subtitles. Definitely worth checking out.
