Salim – Sulaiman– Composers, Producers
“As was tradition, we had planned on working on the Eid song back in March. But come mid-March, we all went under lockdown and it kept on extending. It didn’t keep us from doing what we were determined to. One after the other, as a team, we overcame the hurdles and yet, not a single member spoke about the difficulties we faced in completing it in the lockdown. Everyone was only filled with positivity and a holy objective – to bring this beautiful song for all of you, before Eid. Stay home, stay safe, and celebrate this auspicious occasion with us and your loved ones. Eid Mubarak!” Source

“With Maalik Mere, my recent collaboration with Salim-Sulaiman; my hope is that this song will ideally create a moment of reflection for the listener.
Insha’Allah, it will remind us of our journey in this world, and how in the end what really matters is the closeness to the Almighty.
This prayer was written with all humanity in mind, regardless of one’s religious, national or ethnic affiliation.
The process was more intense this time due to fact that we were completely under the lock-down and working in a different setting – not to mention the very tight deadline we had set for ourselves for the release of this song.
I truly believe that Salim-Sulaiman are writing history with the tradition that they have set for annual releases of their devotional songs on Eid-Ul-Fitr. This one was truly exceptional due to the present times and what the world is currently going through.
Eid Mubarak to all celebrating!”
