Let me begin by thanking you all for an amazing year.

It was truly an unforgettable and blessed year. I would like to thank you all - wherever you may be around the world - for the continuous support, kindness and love you have shown me. My travels and concerts this year have taken me to different parts of the globe and by God’s grace have been fortunate to visit many great places, meet remarkable people and experience the wonderful cultures of our human civilisation.

Above all, I was truly humbled by the undeserved welcome and reception I received in every country I visited. For you all, my heartfelt appreciation:

Egypt - (especially the fans from Alexandria) for all your support and love. You have been supporting me right from the start and I have not seen any other people love Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) like you.

Jordan - for your kindness, support and love. I thoroughly enjoyed myself being amongst you.

Syria - for your great manners, culture, support love and appreciation of art and civilization.

Kuwait - for your love, support and amazing reception.

Holland (Utrecht) - for the amazing reception and crowd. You truly showed me so much kindness. God bless you all.

Yemen - for your treasures, beauty, simplicity, humility, humanity, architecture and great civilization.

Azerbaijan - for your love of life, music, spirituality and for giving me a presidential welcome upon my return to my native homeland.

Sudan - for your rich culture and hospitality and for the grand welcome?

Saudi Arabia - for your spirit and great love for the Prophet. Makkah and Madina is my heart and soul and when I first saw the Ka'ba I felt as though a parent had finally found his/her child after many many years of separation. Madina is the purest city in the world and the closest to my heart and I will never forget my visit there.

Germany - for your continuous support and love. Thank you for honouring me.
Turkey - for your great support and love. You have always supported me from the beginning.

UK and USA - And how can I ever forget the British and American fans - you guys are the people who have been there from the start (when I wasn’t known at all in the Middle East and other parts of the Muslims world). Jazakumallahu Khairan for your love and support. May God bless you ALL and shower His Blessings and Mercy upon you.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for all your messages and guestbook entries from Trinidad to Malaysia; India to Nigeria. Rest assured that I read them all and am truly honoured by every single message I receive. God bless you all.

May God bless the coming year with His light and shower us with His Peace and Love. Let us all work together in creating a better world to live and pray that our future is better than our present.
