Thank You Maher Zain for Bringing a Beautiful Change in My Life

Misbah loves to hear songs. She loves to share what she loves.


Inspiration is more than a mental and physical force, it is emotional and spiritual and makes people accomplish extraordinary things on a superlative level.

Unlike the strength that comes from motivation, inspiration adds a spice of magic that transcends physical and mental strength. Who is inspired has a wonderful and surprising talent; somehow he finds himself in compromise with himself and generates, creates, gives the world a superb contribution directly from his being.

Thus, inspiration arises from within, from the heart, from the soul. Inspiration has nothing to do with the mind or physical strength, on the contrary, it is a shortcut where we communicate directly to the world, dodging the barriers of the mind and transcending the physical and real plane. Inspiration generates unreality and is the origin of creation, of ideas.

For inspiration to exist there must be a feeling and whether it is positive or negative, inspiration is always positive. If the feeling were a tree, the inspiration is the ripe fruits. Inspiration gives rise to talent. A person who is often inspired is a talented person (regardless of whether the feeling that inspires them was positive or negative) since, for example, emotional pain also inspires.

Technically inspiration is the act of drawing air through the nose into the lungs. It is remarkable that ancient meditation techniques use this technique to achieve inspiration that is often called enlightenment. In other words, the technical side of the definition is also a common practice to achieve the goal: to get inspired.

Inspiration is the need to express a feeling, an emotion. It is undoubtedly a form of expression that regardless of the channel chosen, the message is revealed with a majestic and supernatural intensity. It is the eruption of a volcano when lava is the talent.

Inspiration generates admiration, pleasure, curiosity and, on the other hand, it generates motivation, that is, “the desire to do” as well.

To generate inspiration in another person, to inspire them, you need an emotional connection that allows you to help the seed of inspiration to be born.

My inspiration - Maher Zain

The creative process through which an idea originates has been shrouded in mystery for centuries. The Greeks have talked about muses, but today we know it is a subjective, sudden, contagious emotional state.

Like everyone in some stages of life gets inspired by someone. In this stage of my life. I am also inspired by someone, a Swedish Singer named Maher Zain. It's about 4 months ago when I heard one of his songs named Live it up.

Although I have been listening to his songs for a very long time, but this song has brought up a lot of positive changes in my life. You may feel like I am crazy or something as my family thinks... Lol!

I felt that the music business was very empty, In the west and in some eastern places, all the songs are about love and getting hurt, but there's more to life than that

My Playlist

I use to walk for about 50 to 60 minutes every day. While walking I use to listen to music and maybe you people won't believe it but it's true. Live it up is the only song in my playlist. I put the track on repeat mode and just walk. I use to listen to this song about 100 times a day and still not getting bored. I don't know what's the reason behind it, but it inspired me so much.

It helped me to bring something you can call inner peace and Happiness. It changed me. For this, I thank Maher Zain. So I'mma live it up!!

The song is in two languages, Spanish and English. Please listen to this song once. Let me know in the comments can you find a reason why I am loving it so much. Is it really so inspiring or is it just inspiring me for some reason?

Please can you give 3 minutes from your busy schedule to listen to the song which inspired me so much

Sometimes it seems that we gotta lose it all

Before we can see that nothing lasts forever

Risk it all for love, love is from above

And my life, my life, my life is for You

So I'mma live it up

This is lovely.

It's hard to believe you would listen to the same song over and over again.

But after listening to it...I can see why.

I love the beat or tempo abd the words are inspirational.

It just makes you feel happy.

Great job.

Hi Mr. Bill. No, this is not my picture. You have actually seen my original photo. I have used mine before. I will put it back again. Reason behind not using my photo is that my parents don't like me sharing my picture online.

Thanks for sharing this artist with us. I will listen to him later today.

Have a wonderful day, my friend, filled with love and wonder.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on May 20, 2021:

Thanks for introducing me and others to Maher Zain. I listened to his song, and I can understand why it has inspired you. The lyrics are impressive, and the beat would be a good one to hear while on your walks. Thanks for sharing this with us, Misbah.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on May 20, 2021:

Thank you so much, Lorna, for understanding this article and the song lyrics so well. Zain said from a hotel room in Cairo, over Skype. "I felt that the music business was very empty, In the west and in some eastern places, all the songs are about love and getting hurt, but there's more to life than that." After making some new Muslim friends in Sweden and finding solace in going to the mosque, he began to practice Islam seriously. But music was something he had loved from a young age and he didn't want to abandon it. Instead, he made a transition: he swapped secular music for something more religious. Maher zain said, 'My music is a message of Islam'

Much Appreciated, Dear friend

Blessings and lots of love

Ravi Rajan from Mumbai on May 20, 2021:

Thanks Misbah.I have never heard about Maher before but from you have told he sounds like a great singer. I am surely going to hear his music now and get inspired. Thanks for this education.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on May 20, 2021:

Thank you so much for your kind comments, Vidya. I am glad you liked the article and the song as well. Much appreciated

Blessings and Peace

Lorna Lamon on May 20, 2021:

A well-written article Misbah and having listened to Maher Zain's song I was impressed by the lyrics. They not only speak of having a positive outlook but also refer to his faith which I believe gives him an inner strength. We should all let our lives reflect the faith we have, and this song speaks of this to me. Inspirational indeed.

VIDYA D SAGAR on May 20, 2021:

A wonderful article on your inspiration Maher Zain, Misbah. I listened to the song in the video shared by you, it is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on May 19, 2021:

Aww, thank you, John for sharing this beautiful song, Don't Worry Be Happy by Guy Sebastian. Nice song. I enjoyed listening to it. Thanks a lot for your kindness. Much appreciated.

I am glad to know you liked this article about Maher Zain and the song as well. Stay safe and happy

Blessings and Peace

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on May 19, 2021:

Misbah, thank you for this great article and for sharing your inspiration, Maher Zain. We are all inspired by someone or something. I listened to “Live It Up” and I love it. What a feel good song.

He reminds me a bit of an A very popular singer here, Malaysian/Australian singer Guy Sebastion. Here is a link to one of his songs that is somewhat in a similar vein:

Great job on this.
