The Rabbani Project; a non-profit collective was set up in 2012. Its first project was an eclectic Album of Sufi-inspired songs from around the world featuring artists such as Siddi Yassir Chadly, The Burdah Ensemble, Shaykh Hassan Dyck, Shaykh Ali el Sayed Antanukama, Duha Magerita, Pearls of Islam, and many more. All proceeds from the album were donated to a space in London dedicated to cultural and spiritual advancement in the local community. It was a highly received album that opened doors to a national tour around the UK titled ‘ The Green Path to Eternity. These were the seeds that were planted as a foundation for what the collective was to then grow into.
The Rabbani Project consists of four different branches; The Salaam Cafe, Ladies of Light, Green Deen Tribe, and the Black Muslim Women Healing Collective. Each chapter is a manifestation of the four key elements of the Rabbani Project. Spirituality, Creativity, Nature and Servitude. All are essential tools for the wandering soul to find itself back home. To seek peace, to seek oneness, and to seek the Divine. To be those who are Rabbaniyun.
