Naam-e-Muhammad Salle Ala: By Ustad Mehmood Nizami and Ghulam Faridi Nizami Qawwal
Naam-e-Muhammad Salle Ala: A Rare Urdu Naat by Ustad Mehmood Nizami & Ghulam Faridi Nizami Qawwal
Dear Brother W,
Lately I rediscovered a wonderful Urdu Naat by Ustad Mehmood Nizami and Ghulam Faridi Nizami Qawwal: “Naam-e-Muhammad Salle Ala – Subhan Allah – Haq!”. I want to share this rare Naat (published in France in 1987) with you, and so I’m sending it to you. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
Ustad Mehmood Nizami was one of the classical qawwals of Basti Hazrat Nizamuddin, Delhi, and Ghulam Farid Nizami was his eldest son.
The lyrics are by a certain Anjum; unfortunately I haven’t been able to find any information on him.
Wishing you all the very best, your brother
