I Plead – By Ali Fadhil

This song, is based on a centuries old supplication, taught by the Archangel Jibra’il (Gabriel) to the Prophet Mohammed during one of the battles, where the Prophet had a very heavy coat of armour on to protect himself, that was causing him very much pain, and so in this state the Angel Jibra’il descended to the Prophet and taught him this supplication as a shield (Jawshan) to protect him and his Ummah, in any time of need. The song’s lyrics come from a worshipper’s point of view as he goes through post-mortem stages, fearful of what would come his way as a result of his sins, later realising the protection this supplication provided him.

The video was filmed across the picturesque patchwork of lakes, valleys, woodlands and fells in North England’s national parks. As well as the graveyard in the St. Andrew’s Anglican Parish Church located in Kingsbury.
