Ramadan, the holy month where one gets a chance to get their sins forgiven and earn a reward of 70 good deeds just by doing one, is waited by Muslims everywhere.
They fast during this month and spend most of their time praying and reciting the Holy Quran. But the people working sometimes need good music to pass their day. However, it is not restricted to listen to music during this month but, people usually recommend not to do so.
They suggest praying to Allah to get their sins forgiven during this time instead of listening to songs or watching television.
But you can't keep few people away from music as it works as fuel for them. Some people need to listen to good music while they are working.
So don't worry, following is a list of soothing songs/naats that will lighten your mind, and also will not let you move away from your path of worshipping.
These songs will create a Ramadan vibe, and you will not regret listening to them for sure.
1) Sehar Ka Waqt
If you could understand the lyrics and their references to the past, it would bring tears to the eyes.
Danish Dar and Dawar Farooq, the young duo who is especially known for their Hasbi Rabbi song series, made this one of the best songs to listen to during Ramadan.
The song is also sung beautifully by Momina Mustehsan.
"Na Koi Aap Jaisa Hai, Na Koi Aap Jaisa Tha,
Koi Yusuf Se Puche Mustafa Ka Husn Kaisa Tha,
Zameen Aur Aasmaan Me Koi Bhi Misaal Na Mili..."
2) Tajdar-e-Haram | Coke Studio Season 8
The legendry naat made everyone crazy when Coke Studio released it in the voice of Atif Aslam.
"Aapke Darr Se Koi, Na Khaali Gaya,
Apne Daawan Ko Bhar Ke, Sada Legaya!"
A beautiful naat and perfect to set your mood with some positive vibes.
"Mera Maula Saath De, Mera Haath Thaam Le,
Tera Banda Mushkilo Me Hai Ghiraa"
4) Hasbi Rabbi Jallallaah (Part 1)
Danish and Dawar are your lead artist in this playlist. The voice straight away hits the heart.
"Zulm Hue Kitne Unpar, Seene Pe Rakha Patthar,
Phir Bhi Zubaan Pe Jaari Tha, La Ilaaha Illallaah"
5) Hasbi Rabbi Jallallaah (Part 2)
The success of the first part motivated the duo to release another.
"Apni Behen Se Bole Umar, Ye To Bata Kya Karti Thi,
Mere Aane Se Pehle Kya Chupke Chupke Padhti Thi!
Behen Ne Jab Quraan Padha, Sunke Ke Qalam-E-Paak Khuda,
Dil Ye Umar Ka Bol Padha La Ilaaha Illallaah"
6) Hasbi Rabbi Jallallaah (Part 3)
Habi Rabbi easily made to the playlist of people. It took no time to come on the lips of the youngsters in the house and everyone else too loved it.
Danish Dar and Dawar Farooq made entry into favorites of people.
"Lab Pe Naat-e-Paak Ka Nagma, Kal Bhi Tha Aur Aaj Bhi Hai,
Mere Nabi Se Mera Rishta, Kal Bhi Tha Aur Aaj Bhi Hai"
7) Hasbi Rabbi Jallallaah (Part 4)
The craze for the parts of Hasbi Rabbi grew and everyone waited for the month of Ramadan to check another song by Danish and Dawar.
"Aapka Har Ek Ummati, Jannat Me Daakhil Hoga,
Jisne Bhi Dil Se Hoga Padha, La Ilaaha Illallaah"
8) Hasbi Rabbi Jallallaah (Part 5)
Danish and Dawar continued their streak to bring these beautiful naats every year.
"Aapke Jaisa Kaun Yahan Iss Duniya Me Aaya Hai,
Jisne Aapko Dil Se Chuna, Usne Sab Kuch Paaya Hai,
Allah Ke Wo Pyaare Nabi, Allah Ko Na Bhule Kabhi,
Har Pal Har Dam Yahi Kaha La Ilaaha Illallaah"
9) Hasbi Rabbi Jallallaah (Part 6)
We think every year that we got the best one, but Danish and Dawar surprise us every time with another soothing and beautiful naat. With the relation of lyrics with Hadees (the past incidents), the duo always nails the hearts of the listeners.
"Tujhse Hai Umeed Judi, Jab Hogi Bakshish Ki Ghadi,
Shaan Teri Dekhega Zamaana La Ilaaha Illallah"
10) Hasbi Rabbi Jallallaah | Ramzan Special (Part 7)
This one is completely different from the previous ones. Danish and Dawar sang it in a classic naat style. We still love it anyway.
"Haq Hai Allah, Sach Hai Allah,
“Mafiqalbi Gairullah, Hasbi Rabbi Jallallah"
11) Wohi Khuda Hai | Coke Studio Season 12
The songs by Atif Aslam need no introduction and getting it released by Coke Studio, makes it a sure shot hit. The due never produced any disappointment.
"Koi To Hai Jo Nizaam-e-Hasti Chala Raha Hai,
Wohi Khuda Hai!"
12) Arziyaan | Delhi 6
A.R. Rahman, this man is a gem. One of the most popular Sufi songs in Bollywood and a true masterpiece.
"Sajde Me Rehne Do, Ab Kahin Na Jaunga,
Ab Jo Tumne Thukraya To Sambhal Na Paunga,
Maula Maula Maula Mere Maula"
The legendary Abida Parveen and Atif Aslam came together for this one and no doubt made it an epic one.
14) Khwaja Mere Khwaja | Jodha Akbar
Another one from A.R. Rahman and a classic one. The scene where this song comes in the movie Jodha Akbar makes it more accurate.
"Hai Mere Peer Ka Sadqa, Tera Daawan Hai Thaama!
Tali Har Bala Hamari, Chaya Hai Khumaar Teraa,
You can't keep Atif Aslam away from these classic naats away for a long time.
"Tere Darr Tere Darbaar Se Dard Se Milti Shifa,
Faisla Lele, Hausla Dede, Tere Rang Mainu Rang Auliyaaaa"
16) Noor-e-Kuda | My Name Is Khan
Adnan Sami, Shankar Mahadevan & Shreya Ghoshal took this song to another level. The song is full of positivity and never fails to calm your mood from a day full of stress.
"Khali Aankhein Khudse Sawaal Kare, Gham Ki Cheenkh Behaal Kare,
Behta Lahu Fariyaad Kare, Tera Mitta Chala Hai Nishaan
Rooh Jamsi Gayi, Waqt Tham Sa Gaya,
Toote Khwaabon Ke Manzar Pe Tera Jahan Chal Diya"
17) Bhar Do Jholi Meri | Bajrangi Bhaijaan
The song rather naat is of the most popular one in the old times. Adnan Sami sang Bhar Do Jholi again in the movie Bajrangi Bhaijaan and nailed it.
"Dede Aa Nabi Mere Dil Ko Dilaasa,
Aaya Hoon Doorse Mai, Hoke Ruhaasa,
Hoo Karde Karam Nabi Mujhpe Bhi Zara Sa,
Jab Talak Tu Sunega Na Dilkii, Darr Se Tere Na Jaye Sawali"
18) Tajdar-e-Haram | Satyamev Jayata
Wajid Ali sang a new version of Tajdar-e-Haram in the movie Satyamev Jayata. Comparing it with the original one might not give you positive vibes but considering it individually, it's a good song.
19) Piya Haji Ali
One song, we might have been listening to from our childhood and not bored of it.
"Kiske Dilme Kya Chupaa Hai Sab Tumhe Malum Hai,
Piya Haji Ali, Baba Haji Ali"
20) Lab Pe Aati Hai Dua
Who needs an introduction to this naat! We are already hearing the naat in our minds while reading this. We heard a new and small version of Lab Pe Aati Hai Dua in the movie Raazi and it was loved by all. Therefore, we can't keep away Lab Pe Aati Hai Dua from our Ramadan playlist.
"Mere Allah Buraai Se Bachana Mujhko,
Nek Jo Raah Ho Us Raah Pe Chalana Mujhko!"
21) Kun Faya Kun | Rockstar
A.R. Rahman is the master of everything when it comes to music. Along with Javed Ali and Mohit Chauhan, he again nailed in the movie Rockstar.
In the scene when Janardhan(Ranbir Kapoor) was made to leave his home with nothing and had nowhere to go, he accidentally reaches a Dargah.
The song perfectly suits the situation and the meaning of the lyrics is so deep.
"Mann Ke, Mere Ye Bharam Kachche, Mere Ye Qaram Leke,
Chale Hai Kahan, Mai To Jaanu Hi Naa....
Tu Hai Mujhme Samaya, Kahan Leke Mujhe Aaya,
Mai Hoon Tujhme Samaya, Tere Piche Chala Aaya,
Tera Hi Mai Ek Saaya, Tune Mujhko Banaya, Mai To Jagko Na Bhaya,
Tune Gale Se Lagaya, Sach Tu Hi Hai Khudayaa!"
22) Noor E Ilahi
Salim Sulaiman and Abida Parveen starring Pankaj Tripathi made a beautiful video and released it in 2016. The song or naat is a classic one with deep meaning.
23) Asma-ul-Husna | The 99 Names Of Allah
The way it is presented by Coke Studio and sung by Atif Aslam is beyond praise. It was much needed for people as it was released during the first wave of COVID-19.
Not just the song is making your mind calm but also teaching you the facts in Islam.
24) Mustafa Jaan-E-Rehmat | Darood O Salaam
Darood-O-Salaam is recited on many occasions in Muslim families. Being sung by Atif Aslam and crew just made a must-listen for everyone.
Sometimes I think if Atif Aslam sang or recited the whole Quran in his amazing voice and released it, a whole generation of Muslims will learn it in no time. That is the magic in his voice.
All the songs mentioned above will no doubt bring Goosebumps. We can rather name the playlist as Goosebump Series!
I hope, you liked it! I know Ramadan is a month to worship but we all need a break for few hours.
So, do pray all the namaz and tarawih, recite Quran, perform all other necessary activities, and in between if you want a break and looking for music to calm down your mind, switch to these songs mentioned above.
