Devotional Naats And Qawwalis That
Have Left Us Speechless
Doubtlessly, the best of Atif Aslam. Get ready for your emotions to flow with Tajdar-e-Haram as it talks about God blessing us with His mercy. This masterpiece will lift you up whenever you feel down and strengthen your beliefs like no other. Even if things are going downhill in your life, just believe He sees everything and is the best planner.
Bhar Do Jholi Meri
Bhar Do Jholi Meri is a beautiful qawwali asking for guidance from Him and fixing people’s broken fates. In the exceptional voice of Adnan Sami and Pritam, this qawwali has the power to calm the mind and bring peace into our lives. It brings to life that beautiful relationship between man and God that we should never drift too far away from.
We can never thank ‘Soch’ – the Sufi rock band from Pakistan – enough for this powerful and emotional masterpiece. We have all faced heart-breaking problems in life and sometimes do not see a way forward. ‘Bol Hu’ asks us to just call upon Hu (God), and even the scorching loo (heatwaves) will feel like a cool breeze. In a sense that no problem will seem unsolvable when you go down the spiritual path.
Mustafa Jaan e Rehmat
Mustafa Jaan-e-Rehmat, renowned poetry by Imam Ahmed Raza Khan, comes as a blessing to the ears with Atif Aslam’s soulful voice. This naat has the power to fill you with immense positive energy and peace – even if you do not understand the language. If you seek the meaning, it is a different world out there. Add it to your playlist for an occasional spiritual boost.
Tu Kuja Man Kuja
Originally composed by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, this mesmerizing qawwali from Coke Studio will draw you in from the beginning to the end. ‘Tu Kuja Man Kuja’ is heart-touching praise for God and His blessings on this world. This qawwali will allow you to praise the beauty around you and achieve a soul connection with Him. Definitely a cure for all negativity.
Influenced by Sufism, Noor-e-Khuda is a song from the movie My Name Is Khan. In the beautiful voice of Adnan Sami and Shankar Mahadevan – Noor-e-Khuda focuses on finding the light of God during tough times. It is also a prayer begging God not to turn away from us. The soul-stirring acting of Shah Rukh Khan and the heart-touching lyrics of this song is enough to bring goosebumps and make you teary-eyed.
Hasbi Rabbi falls as a blessing to the ears in the divine voice of Sami Yusuf. He has the exceptional talent of combining multiple languages in his songs – Hasbi Rabbi has Urdu, Arabic, Persian and Turkish. This devotional masterpiece is a praise of God and a way of asking for His mercy and guidance in all walks of life. If you are stressed, listen to Hasbi Rabbi and feel it all melt away.
Kun Faya Kun
We won’t say ‘saving the best for the last because there is no comparison among any of the ones we have listed here, but this one definitely has a place in all of our hearts. Kun Faya Kun tells us that people might leave you, and you may find yourself all alone, but God will always be with you. Even the impossible is possible if He wishes it to be. This music is simply healing and irreplaceable.
Eid-ul-Adha Mubarak, everyone! May your lives be filled with uncountable blessings and eternal peace from the heavens above.
