Wael Jassar wants to release another spiritual album.

The popular Lebanese crooner is famous for his sensitive ballads and the Islamic-inspired spiritual albums.

After the success of 2010’s Fi Hadrat Al Mahboub and 2011’s Beloved Prophet, Jassar says he plans to continue the series with an album dedicated to famous women in Islamic history.

“With God’s will I hope I can make it,” he said from the Mawazine Festival in Morocco. “With this album I just want to help in showing that Islam is a religion of peace as opposed to what other people are propagating the religion to be.”
