Maher Meshaal, known as Abu al-Zubair al-Jazrawi, born in al-Qassim Region, Saudi Arabia, 1989, was a Saudi Arabian munshid (a singer of anasheed or Arabic a cappella chants) and mujahid.
He was well known in his home country for appearing on a TV program for an anasheed competition before he emigrated to join the Islamic State in 2013. He also appeared on al- Bidayah TV Channel. He became famous as the singer behind some of their most famous and popular anasheed which are regularly played as background music in combat and execution videos released by Islamic State. Meshaal spent five years working as an munshid and an imam at a mosque in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, before joining ISIL in April 2013, the Saudi Gazette claims.
He was killed by a US airstrike around the 14th July 2015 near the Syrian city of al-Hasakah.
On 9 January 2016, ISIL released a ten-minute documentary-style video titled 'Nay they are alive with their Lord', a reference to Qur'an verse Ali 'Imran 3:169, celebrating Meshaal's life and exploits in his own words.
