Yeah, repeat no. “Alluhu Akbar”, a dance track, very very House, went to the top of the viral lists on Spotify Europe last week. Why? It isn’t a particularly inspired speak, though the “God Is Greater” axiom (prayer?) brought in from time to time is strong enough for a short derailment. I bet it could be a blast on the dancefloor.
Of course, the 500 AD call of Islam has managed to be sullied from expression of absolute faith to an expression of Satanic hatred, and this version of the phrase at least reconstitutes it. One of my favorite things about Islam has always been the music. The best thing about my father’s funeral (if you see what I mean) were the blind religious men chanting prayers.
Here is the story has reported in RT.com (here):
“A mysterious trance track called “Allahu Akbar” (“God is the greatest” in Arabic) reached number two on music streaming site Spotify Viral Chart in the UK over the weekend.
The track hit second on the chart despite the fact its artist, DJ Inappropriate, was previously unknown in the world of music.
The phrase ‘Allahu Akbar’ is used by Muslims in prayer and as an expression of faith. It can be heard in the call to prayer heard from the minarets of mosques throughout the Muslim world.
“The song is apparently meant to be satirical. It is not intended to be inflammatory or to incite hatred,” the source said.
“It has been doing the rounds for ages and seems to be shared a lot by gamers. But it has grown in popularity over the past month.”
According to Spotify, the song is being played mostly in Oslo, Norway, followed by Stockholm, Sweden and then London.
The song entered the Spotify Viral Chart on November 4, before the Paris attacks, but has since risen to the top.
‘Allahu Akbar’ has been circulating on the web for the past seven months.”
