Dawud Wharnsby Canadian born poet and songwriter Dawud Wharnsby began sharing his songs with audiences as a street performer in his late teens.

In true folk-music tradition, Dawud’s songs have spread around the world – ringing out in primary schools, universities, places of worship, rallies and conventions – with words that have found their way into the hearts of listeners aged 0 to 92. His work and reputation as one of the most prominent spiritually and socially conscious writers of our time.

Dawud’s writings of English language nasheed (spiritual songs drawn from Qur’anic philosophy) were among the first of their kind written and distributed professionally around the world.

As a voice for the socially-conscious and spiritually-driven, Dawud’s poetry, songs, artworks and intimate live performances have inspired a generation of educators, musicians, poets and artists.

Though he continues to write, record and occasionally leave his home-studio to lecture or perform live ~ in recent years Dawud has become a strong advocate of Simple Living and more actively involved with educational initiatives promoting artistic expression as a means to achieve positive social change.
