Description :
Naat for a New Generation : In this New compilation you will find Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, Punjabi and English poetry - different languages, all with one aim, praising the Beloved Prophet, ?.
Each poem is translated into plain English, but these are not simple translations for the purpose of understanding alone. The translation of each poem is written in rhyming verse, to complement the original work so that they can both be recited in a single tune, seamlessly flowing from Arabic to English or Farsi to English, or Urdu and Punjabi to English.
The Beloved's praise is praise indeed,
For praised like him, not one has been.

Muhammad, ?, - most praised, is his name,
Most praised in all of God's domain
Extract from the Foreword :

" What we can conclude is that Naat, when written correctly, is really a form of Salawat and Salaam. This is why we say that composing Naat is not the place of every other person. It is only the place of those who have dived to the depths of the etiquettes of Tawhid and Risaalah.
Those who possess, in addition to knowledge of the sciences and arts, a mindfulness regarding the next life. Those who apply the Sunnah practically; whose very existence is filled to the core with the Prophet's, ?, love and who are well aware of the great honour of the Prophet's, ?, Family and Companions, especially the Rightly Guided Caliphs, may Allah be pleased with them all.
This collection of Naat (poems) with English translation is a step forwad, worthy of many congratulations. " ---Shaykh Muhammad Habibur Rahman Mahboobi.
