World’s Best Naat Khawans: We all have different ways to express our love. We aren’t true Muslims until and unless we love our last Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) more than ourselves and anything in this world. Our religion is based on the respect and love we have for the Prophet (P.B.U.H) because only then we will follow the teachings he has left for us.
His status in Islam is the highest, as God Almighty says that we can only get His love if we love and follow his Prophet. The teachings he has given us are not specific for any area or time, but it is for every human being who came and will come in this world till the day of resurrection. And to be a Muslim you must have to follow what he has left for us, in the form of the Quran and Hadith.
Naat is another way of expressing the love for Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). In its verses, Naat khawans express how they love and respect the Holy Prophet. The verses of Naat are all the praises of the beloved Prophet, the way he spent his life, about his kindness, the role model he was. Every naat khawan has their own way of expressing it and putting that love and respect in the form of verses.
Who are the World’s Best Naat Khawans?
Since Islam is not just bound to a specific area but is spread in different parts of the world, the lovers of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) are as much. Every single being, Muslim or Non-Muslim respects the man he was, and what he has taught us, the life that he spent, and considers him as a role model. Even the most successful leaders without the boundary of religion follow him and respect him.
There are many lovers of him who write naats in his regard. They try to put out their true emotions in the form of verses, but of course, it is not possible for anyone to explain how much they love Muhammad. Because it is limitless and impossible to put in words. Words will be less, and pages won’t be enough if we start writing our love for him (P.B.U.H), the praises, and what he means to Muslims. Don’t get me started on time, as it runs fast and will definitely reach the day of judgment, as it is near. And Muhammad’s (P.B.U.H) praises won’t still be expressed.
