Fig.4-6 Sami Yusuf in his expensive apartment and performing ablutions before prayer in the video for Al-Mu’allim; helping a blind man cross the street.

Figs. 7-8 Sami Yusuf helping a blind man in Al-Mu’allim contrasts with the largely normative music video below. An image of a voluptuous female figure in Shirin’s video Sabri ‘Alil. Note that Sami Yusuf’s video does not have text messages scrolling across the bottom of the screen. Another example of attempts to separate the religious from the mundane.
