The song’s significance comes from its reputation for having been sung to the Prophet Muhammad when he was looking for solace. For the 163 Syrian refugees who were greeted with residency and warm winter coats by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after landing at the airport, the new video is just one of many gestures by Canadians to make the asylum-seekers feel safe and welcomed.
