This episode of the Greed for Ilm Podcast, I talk about the upcoming Sami Yusuf concert on September 26th, 2014 at the Strathmore in Maryland. It will be his first time performing in the Washington DC area. Sami Yusuf’s management company, ETM International, generously has given me two “personal guest” tickets to this special event. This will be my first concert and I am extremely excited that I will be able to see/meet the humble and talented Sami. I had Sami on the podcast before (episode 14) and was amazed by his kind-hearted character and remarkable musical ability.
InshaAllah, I am looking forward to seeing him perform on September 26th.
