Renowned platinum-selling recording artist, Maher Zain has released a new charity single and video, “Be Mercy,” in association with One Family and RAF Foundation.
The video, filmed in Kenya for release in Ramadan, is a plea for the world to show mercy and kindness towards those less fortunate who have grown up without the love we all deserve. When we do this, Maher’s moving lyrics tell us, we become better people. By offering up the “healing balm” of kindness, he tells us, “we learnt to become truly human.”
Zain hopes his words can and do make a difference: “Music connects us,” he says. “And this song helped me understand how I can be better by being kind to those around me. That realisation is worth more than all the money in the world.”
As an Ambassador of One Family, Maher does more than sing about the issues. He recently visited Somalia, where he cooked for and fed young children affected by famine and conflict, and he stands strong in his belief that giving of oneself is a moral obligation, the foundation for which love. It is a belief he expresses through his music and which we see again in his magical song, Be Mercy.
