Yusuf Islam at GPU

When I embraced Islam in 1977, one of the first things I learnt, even before I learned al Fatiha, was to say assalamu alaikum. Even before I was taught al Fatiha, I was taught how to say assalamu alaikum. peace be with you. And our Prophet (saws), peace be upon him: "You will not enter heaven until you believe. And you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I not guide you to a thing which if you do it will increase love amongst you? Spread salaam."

Give the salutation of peace to the world. That is our responsibility.

At around 11 minutes, he sings "The End," which was originally composed for 1985's Live Aid, and is on his new album An Other Cup.
