In Love with the Beloved

Peace, one and all…

Prayers and songs in praise of the Prophet (sall Allahu alaihi wa alihi wa salem) are an important and integral part of Islamic spirituality.  As such, I wanted to share some wonderful and exciting songs from the Muslim world sharing their love of Muhammad al-Mustafa (alaihi al-salatu wa al-salam).  Enjoy and may all who pass by be blessed.

Allahumma salli ala sayyidina Muhammad wa ali sayyidina Muhammad.

To start us off, here is a beautiful Turkish ilahi, sung by the wonderful Sami Ozer.  Listening to this makes me want to leap for joy.

Our next offering is the beautiful Sare Nabian da Nabi, by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.  Love just pours forth from this qawwal, like a river in flood.

Our third song is a wonderful qawwal from India, in praise of the Prophet (alaihi al-salatu wa salam).  It makes me want to whirl and spin.

Salli Ala, Salli Ala

Song four comes from Ethiopia, and is a beautiful rendition of a tradition salawat.


With song five, we head back to India, with the wonderful Yad-e Nabika Gulshan Mehka.  The lyrics are also available.

And to conclude, here is a beautifully tranquil Urdu Naat, Shah-e-Madina (King of Madina)


‘Then may blessings be upon the Chosen One from Mudar,
the Best of Mankind, among those who weep or smile.

And may his family and companions be preserved
by our Lord, along with [all] their followers’.

Ma’as salama,
Abdur Rahman
