WHO DECLARE MUSIC AS Music is another of those activities, which has been declared by some narrow-minded, myopic, bigoted, spoilsport apostles of self-righteous Islam as Haraam in whatever form without qualification.

 ZA@Play - Music: Rocking to the call of Islam 17/12/99   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
GC's musical rebirth is very much akin to that of singer Cat Stevens who, after embracing Islam in 1979 and changing his name to Yusuf Islam, renounced a legendary music career in favour of an unadorned Islamic lifestyle.

The point of his music, according to GC, is "to get youngsters involved in the Islam of the Qur'an and the Prophet Muhammad", instead of chasing them away.
