Shaam - Jashne Aamede Rasool (Live)



I was searching on You Tube for some daff (duff) drumming to practice along with.  Came across this group and their nasheed in Urdu.

Absolutely beautiful, Masha Allah.

Enjoy!

They also have a beautiful nasheed in English.
Mercy Like the Rain

Here is another Arabic & Urdu (mixed) nasheed by a very famous Pakistani Na'at khwan (The one who sings nasheed)

Allahu (As subuhu bada min) by Qari Waheed Zafar

Let me know if you are interested in listening some more Urdu na'at or Qawali.

Here are the lyrics:

JASHNE AAMADE RASOOL - Celebrations of the coming of the Messenger

[ translated from Urdu ]

Celebrations of the coming of the Messenger
The flower of Lady Aminah

When the master was about to come
The maidens and boy servants of Paradise began to rejoice

The light spread everywhere
With the coming of the Chosen One came life to us all

O Halima in your lap has arrived
The Messenger of both worlds

Celebrations of the coming of the Messenger
The flower of Lady Aminah

Some would praise his face
Some would praise his locks of hair

Seeing this, Aminah began smiling
Eve and Mary too began rejoicing

Lady Aminah began saying to everybody
The prayer has been accepted

Celebrations of the coming of the Messenger
The flower of Lady Aminah

Festive music was sounded
Songs of happiness were heard by all

Everywhere shouts of 'peace on him'
Today the Beloved of God has been born

Thereafter Gabriel announced
This truly is the Messenger of God

Celebrations of the coming of the Messenger
The flower of Lady Aminah

Salaam Safiyyah,

Who is helping you in translation?

Safiyyah said...

Salaams Usman:

It's from here:

http://www.shaamgroup.com/12419/1229.html

On their website, they have the lyrics to all of their songs.

Is it bad translation of Urdu?

Usman said...

Salaam Safiyyah,

Actually translation is fine. But there is more in translation than what is in the video. In fact the video goes up to half the translation you have listed. So, I was wondering where is the rest of the part.

Anyway here are more Nasheeds if you like;

QASIDA BURDA SHAREEF by Junaid Jamshed

Junaid Jamshed was once a pop singer. Then he turned to doing da'wa.

Here is another one:

Ya Nabi Salaam O Alaika by Owais Qadri

I do not like Owais Qadri's flamboyant style of vidoes. But he is good Na'at Khawan.

And here is what we call Qawali in South Asia. It is a form of Sufi music and has its roots in Sufism. You may not enjoy it because one has to know the poetry to get it. But if Europeans shown in this video can have some fun than you may also find it interesting.

Allah Hoo by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

I like:

"Seeing this, Aminah began smiling
Eve and Mary too began rejoicing"
