Mishary Al Arada, the famous nasheed artist from Kuwait has sadly passed away.

Born on 16 August 1982 in Yarmūk (Kuwait), Mishary Al Arada knew how to make his first steps, in the nasheed world by recording several songs as “Lover”, “Ya Raja’ I”, “Al Ummi Habiba “, “Mali Siwak”, and many more.

The 35-year-old singer of the famous and much loved nasheed, Farshid Thurab, a nasheed about death, passed away in a car accident.

By his extraordinary talent and his magnificent voice, Mishary Al Arada managed to draw the attention of many. May his nasheeds remain a lasting inspiration to all.

May Allah Ta’ala grant the marhoom Jannatul Firdaus and may his qabr be a garden from amongst the gardens of Jannah. Ameen.

Below is an extract of the translation of the nasheed, “Dust is my Bed” (in Arabic: Farshi Turabi) It is about death and the grave and is very deep if one thinks about it thoroughly, which we should.

Dust is my bed (Farshid Thurab)
Dust is my bed,
embracing me,
and it is my cover
The sands are around me,
engulfing me,
even from behind me,
And the tomb recounts [ the story of ] the darkness
of my calamity
And the light has destined
that my pleasure is in meeting [Allah]

Watch the nasheed: Farshid Thurab – as a reminder of the deep message within it.
