Try to turn the world around

Visit the Gallery to see the many phases of Cat's evolution: the impressionable London schoolboy; the 1960s pop star; the world renowned poetic troubadour whose spiritual quest led him to leave the limelight in pursuit of answers to life's greatest questions; and finally, the returning traveller seeking to build bridges between the disparate cultures that shaped him.
What has happened to the Muslim Community since the Prophet Muhammad’s passing (peace be upon him) is anything but the message of unity, love and peace he delivered. Not entirely their fault because those who prosper by dividing mankind into collective groups, those who draw lines between people and families and then make deals with violent would-be-lords, presidents and dictators, must shoulder much of the blame also.
Over the years, since becoming a Muslim, I have been accused of saying and doing things I have neither said nor done. Stories spread from person to person, whether intentionally or not, the result is that some people are led into thinking I am connected to causes I don’t believe in or subscribe to. Now that I’ve decided to sing again, I’m sure it will attract a whole new wave of articles and allegations to diminish my work for peace and better understanding. So to avoid relying on whispers or hearsay, here’s a chance to glance at what I have to say first-hand about some of those controversial issues people tried to tag me with “past and present“ as well as a chance to reprise some of my old lyrics.
