Islam has reflected that his decision to leave the Western pop music business was perhaps too quick with too little communication for his fans. Mary And The Little Lamb.

He also established his own record label, "Jamal Records", and Mountain of Light Productions, and he donates a percentage of his projects' proceeds to his Small Kindness charity, whose name is taken from the Qur'an.
On the occasion of the re-release of his Cat Stevens albums, Islam explained that he had stopped performing in English due to his misunderstanding of the Islamic faith.
I relied on heresy, that was perhaps my mistake. Islam has reflected that his decision to leave the Western pop music business was perhaps too quick with too little communication for his fans.
For most it was a surprise, and even his long-time guitarist Alun Davies said in later interviews that he hadn't believed that his friend would actually go through with it after his many forays into other religions throughout their relationship.
In , after repeated encouragement from within the Muslim world,  Islam once again recorded " Peace Train " for a compilation CD, which also included performances by David Bowie and Paul McCartney.

In December , he and Ronan Keating released a new version of " Father and Son ": the song entered the charts at number two, behind Band Aid 20 's " Do They Know It's Christmas?
The proceeds of "Father and Son" were donated to the Band Aid charity. Keating's former group, Boyzone , had a hit with the song a decade earlier.
As he had been persuaded before, Islam contributed to the song, because the proceeds were marked for charity.
On 21 April Islam gave a short talk before a scheduled musical performance in Abu Dhabi , United Arab Emirates, on the anniversary of the prophet Muhammad 's birthday.
He said:. There is a great deal of ignorance in the world about Islam today, and we hope to communicate with the help of something more refined than lectures and talks.
Our recordings are particularly appealing to the young, having used songs as well as Qur'an verses with pleasing sound effects Islam observed that there are no real guidelines about instruments and no references about the business of music in the Qur'an, and that Muslim travellers first brought the guitar to Moorish Spain.
He noted that Muhammad was fond of celebrations, as in the case of the birth of a child, or a traveller arriving after a long journey.
Thus, Islam concluded that healthy entertainment was acceptable within limitations, and that he now felt that it was no sin to perform with the guitar.
Music, he now felt, is uplifting to the soul; something sorely needed in troubled times. With this performance, Islam began slowly to integrate instruments into both older material from his Cat Stevens era some with slight lyrical changes and new songs, both those known to the Muslim communities around the world and some that have the same Western flair from before with a focus on new topics and another generation of listeners.
After I embraced Islam, many people told me to carry on composing and recording, but at the time I was hesitant, for fear that it might be for the wrong reasons.
I felt unsure what the right course of action was. I guess it is only now, after all these years, that I've come to fully understand and appreciate what everyone has been asking of me.
It's as if I've come full circle; however, I have gathered a lot of knowledge on the subject in the meantime. In early , Islam released a new song, entitled "Indian Ocean", about the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami disaster.
Rahman , a-ha keyboard player Magne Furuholmen and Travis drummer Neil Primrose. Proceeds of the single went to help orphans in Banda Aceh , one of the areas worst affected by the tsunami , through Islam's Small Kindness charity.
At first, the single was released only through several online music stores but later featured on the compilation album Cat Stevens: Gold.
But now I've done it all and there's a little space for me to fill in the universe of music again. On 28 May , Islam delivered a keynote speech and performed at the Adopt-A-Minefield Gala in Düsseldorf.

It opened a flood of, of new ideas and music which I think a lot of people would connect with. Also in November , Billboard magazine was curious as to why the artist is credited as just his first name, "Yusuf" rather than "Yusuf Islam".
The second name is like the official tag, but you call a friend by their first name. It's more intimate, and to me that's the message of this record.
For a lot of people, it reminds them of something they want to hold on to. That name is part of my history and a lot of the things I dreamt about as Cat Stevens have come true as Yusuf Islam.
Islam was asked by the Swiss periodical Das Magazin why the title of the album was An Other Cup , rather than "Another Cup".
The answer was that his breakthrough album, Tea for the Tillerman in , was decorated with Islam's painting of a peasant sitting down to a cup of steaming drink on the land.
He commented that the two worlds "then, and now, are very different". His new album shows a steaming cup alone on this cover. His answer was that this was actually an other cup; something different; a bridge between the East and West, which he explained was his own perceived role.
He added that, through him, "Westerners might get a glimpse of the East, and Easterners, some understanding of the West. The cup, too, is important; it's a meeting place, a thing meant to be shared.
On CBS Sunday Morning in December , he said, "You know, the cup is there to be filled For those people looking for Cat Stevens, they'll probably find him in this record.
