SHAAM - Spring Has Come Spring Has Come evokes the coming of Rabi al-Awwal and most of the nasheeds have the Blessed Prophet (SAW) as their theme; some directly such as the Urdu classics Makki Madani and Hazoor Agaey Hein, while others like the title track Spring has Come allude to him and his mission. All four English songs were written by the group and each is layered with fantastic harmonies and rhythmic drum patterns - the hallmark of SHAAM. Signs in particular is both catchy and deceptively profound. Subhan Allah has an infectious beat, while the words outline the five pillars of Islam - children will find it particularly enjoyable and educational. SallAllahu ala Muhammad takes a classic Arabic nasheed and transforms it into a great, rousing English song. The Arabic tracks Antum Muradi and especially Salawaat meanwhile serve to remind the listener how effortlessly SHAAM can switch between languages and between traditional and contemporary styles of rendition.
