International superstar Sami Yusuf will hold a concert at Royal Opera House in Muscat، Oman، on January 6.

The concert doors open at 06:00 PM.

Meanwhile، on the occasion of New Hijri’s Year، "Mazzika” music channel will air Thursday evening International superstar Sami Yusuf last year's concert، where he performed for the first time at Dubai Opera House.

Yusuf performed in Dubai for the first time in December 2016، where he premiered the song Glorification، inspired by the poetry of Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum، Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

He also performed a number of his famous songs، including “Ya Rasul Allah”، “Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyum”، “Hasbi Rabbi”، “Ya Mustafa” and others.

The Islamic New Year، also known as Arabic New Year or Hijri New Year is the day that marks the beginning of a new Islamic calendar year، and is the day on which the year count is incremented.

The first day of the year is observed on the first day of Muharram، the first month in the Islamic calendar.

The first Islamic year begins in 622 AD with the emigration of Prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina، known as the Hijra.

All religious duties، such as prayer، fasting in the month of Ramadan، and pilgrimage، and the dates of significant events، such as celebration of holy nights and festivals، are calculated according to the lunar calendar.

Noteworthy، Sami Yusuf is an Iranian-born British singer-songwriter، composer، producer and an accomplished musician.

In 2003 Yusuf released his first album "Al-Mu`allim" at the age of 23، which was an instant hit in the Middle East، North Africa، and South-East Asia topping the charts in Egypt and Turkey for twelve consecutive weeks، selling over seven million copies worldwide.

Believing that music can be a "powerful medium to promote ideas and establish dialogue within society"، he coalesced Eastern percussive instrumentation and Western melodies in "Al-Mu'allim" with a focus on the English and Arabic languages.

He also sings in Turkish، Persian، Azeri، Malay and Urdu and is backed by a range of both classical and ethnic instruments.

Redirecting the current of Muslim music through his songs and professionally produced music videos ("Al-Mu'allim" and "Supplication")، Yusuf had "unintentionally" cultivated grounds for a fresh genre of music coined "Spiritique".
