“Muhammad’s is one of those rare lives that is more dramatic in reality than in legend. In fact the less one invokes the miraculous, the more extraordinary his life becomes. What emerges is something grander precisely because it is human, to the extent that his actual life reveals itself worthy of the word ‘legendary’.” ― Lesley Hazleton, The First Muslim: The Story of Muhammad
Drawing inspiration from Lesley Hazleton’s books, in this latest release by Maqam Station, Nadia Rahim and Farhan Shah have written beautiful words in the praise of Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (ﷺ) “One whose name itself compels exaltation…the embodiment of the light of Allah”. Nadia has also done poetic translation in English.
Mustafa (ﷺ) features voice of Kashif Din as a featured artist. Kashif hails from Hunza, Pakistan. Kashif Din shot to fame when he got the opportunity to perform for Coke Studio back in 2019.
This latest production also features Afghan born Canadian Ismaili visual artist Walid Ehssan. Walid is someone whom we have promoted for many years now. Click here to read his previous posts on our website.
