About Maher Zain
Born in Lebanon and raised in Sweden, R&B singer Maher Zain celebrates his faith through song and stands as one of the Muslim world’s most celebrated contemporary artists.
∙ Although he earned a degree in aeronautical engineering, Zain entered the music industry after college and worked in NYC alongside famed producer RedOne (Lady Gaga, Usher, Pitbull).
∙ After returning home and reconnecting with his faith, he decided to pursue a career as a musical artist, releasing his debut album, Thank You Allah, in 2009.
