‘Ya Nabi’ is a Sufi song written in honor of the founder of the Chishti Sufi order, Mu’in al-Din Chishti (d. 1236). It was originally composed by the legendary qawwali group the Sabri Brothers from a compilation of poems and melodies of the Chishti Order of the Indian subcontinent. In this new arrangement with lyrics in Arabic, Sami Yusuf delivers an electrifying performance together with the qawwali musicians who join him on stage.
‘Ya Nabi’ was recorded live over two nights at Sami Yusuf’s ‘Beyond the Stars’ concert at the Dubai EXPO.
