So Why Sound Heart?
sound . . .
1. A vibration that can be heard or perceived through the sense of hearing: I heard the sound echo through the room.
2. In good condition; without flaw or disease; pure: He is a man of sound intellect.
Given these two definitions of sound, the album title, Sound Heart, has a dual meaning. On the first level, this album encases the Sounds of Hearts. Every artist, musician, poet, rapper, singer, dj, producer, and engineer who had a part in this album poured their heart into the work they contributed. The album is the product of over two years of hard work. Much has changed for me in these two years but the album retains, and even increases on many levels, its potency and relevance. It can honestly be said that this album is the “sound of heart(s)”.
The second meaning is of course related to the deeper objective of attaining a heart pure and free of disease and flaw. The goal of the spiritual path is to achieve a sound heart. For only such a heart can, to the limits of human capacity, behold the Most High. Purification of the hearts is a science that has been perfected and applied by prophets, saints, and true women and men of God and has been passed down through an unbroken chain to this very day. “The voice was never silent, the question is who will heed the call.”

Check out Baraka Blue and DJ Anas Canon’s "Celebrate EID" song for CAIR New York’s “EID in NYC Public Schools”
The campaign was requesting that "New York City Department of Education recognize Muslim holidays [like EID] because doing so would send a powerful message that Muslims are a valued part of the diverse New York City community."

Muslim Hip-Hop1 is a blogspot written by myself, Najiyya Alim. I became Muslim at the age of 19. I write poetry, but I am not a poet. I rhyme, but I am not a rapper. I can top rock, but I am not a B-girl. I have lived the culture of hip-hop for most of my life. When I converted to Islam I made friends with Ilyas Curtis, Kumasi, Haero Dizaye, and Kidragon. I remember the summer picnics at Aztec Park. Many of us converts who lived this culture called Hip-Hop. I remember being livid upon the birth of Remarkable Current.
Our community held open mics as a form of dawah, a lyrical invitation to Islam. My children looked forward to hanging out at “Voz Alta”. Today I am a wife and a proud mother of 6. I have a daughter who likes to rhyme and a son who likes to b-boy. Crowd don’t get it twisted- He can recite Qur’an just as well as he can get down.
My ear is always to the ground and I hear all the events going down in the Muslim Hip-Hop Community. Now we are older. We have jobs and these crazy things called responsibilities. I don’t know where they came from. They attacked me like ninjas. For this reason, I like to keep my articles short and to the point. I know that I don’t have time for colorful words about the pavement, so I assume neither does anyone else.
I hope you all enjoy the spot, the blogspot!
