Native Deen - Reviving Islamic Rap

Muslim brotha's did it again. Native Deen are a Muslim musical group from the United States. They consist of three young Muslim men who were born and raised in America. Joshua Salaam, Naeem Muhammad, and Abdul-Malik Ahmad who grew up in Washington, DC. Their music seeks to inspire young people to keep their faith amid the pressures and temptations of modern life.

Many Muslims believe that string and wind instruments should be avoided in Islam. In order to please the widest audience, the group does not use any string or wind instruments in their music. The main instruments are drums, synthesized percussion instruments, and vocals.

Check their home page and don't miss the clip: I am not afraid to be alone, if ALLAH is by ma side (lyrics). If you found yourself interested, you can watch that one too: Small Deeds (lyrics) - put a dollar everyday in the sadaka, it maybe small but you do it for the baraka - these combinations produced a very interesting culture.

Their music is produced under the Mountain of Light label, which was founded by Yusuf Islam (previously known as Cat Stevens)

Keep it goin' brotha's!
