Muhammad Rafi: Exceptional Singer and a great Human Being
Very few people know that Muhammad Rafi the greatest Bollywood singer, performed many beautiful Naat Sharifs in glory of Prophet Muhammad SAW.
Muhammad Rafi was merely a barber at Bhaatti Gate Lahore, whose voice was adored by his customers. Following partition of 1947, he migrated to India to try his luck in Mumabi, and the rest as they say is history. Today his legendary status in music remains unmatched with his God-gifted soft soulful voice.
Some people raising funds to build Mosque came to Rafi Sahib. Rafi Sahib not only donated but also donated ‘Chitaai’ [traditional mat] where Namazi can pray. A few days later he died with stroke and his own Nimaz-e-Jinaaza was performed on the same Chitaaai that he provided with so much love and generosity. Bollywood remembers Rafi sahib not merely as the greatest playback singer but also as a great gentlemen and exceptional human with deep empathy for entire humanity.
