Fauzia Mubarak Ali comes from Muslim family. Her husband, Cat Stevens abandoned his musical career for nearly two decades. In 1977, when he became a Muslim, the Imam at his mosque told him that it was fine to continue as a musician, as long as the songs were morally acceptable, but others were saying that “it was all prohibited”, and he decided to avoid the question by ceasing to perform.
He has said that there was “a combination of reasons, really”, and that the continuing demands of the music business had been “becoming a chore, and not an inspiration anymore”.
