Maher Zain’s Lebanese family emigrated to Sweden when he was eight. He completed his schooling there, gaining a bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering. After university, he entered the music industry in Sweden.
On returning home to Sweden, he became engaged once more with his Islamic faith and decided to move away from a career as a music producer to become a singer/songwriter of contemporary R&B music with a strong Muslim religious influence.
