    Definetely agree with this. This is is one of his famous new-style na'ats withouth the dhikr, yet still beautifully rendered:

    if people think background dhikr beautifies a recitation; then this na'at of owais is proof against this. he does not need it. the lyrics are magnificent.

    kal bhi TukRoN pe unke palte the
    ab bhi TukRoN pe unke palte haiN

    it is like mufti e a'zam mawlana muSTafa raza khan barelwi raHimahullah who says:

    khaate haiN tere dar kaa peeti haiN isi dar ka
    paani hai tera paani daana hai tera daana

    tu sham'e rislat hai...

    masha Allah! the tarbiyah of a father shows through in his children. mawlana Hamid raza khan barelwi raHimahullah [hujjat al-islam] says:

    Hamid o muSTafa tere hind meiN haiN ghulam do

    this also shows hujjat al-islam's love for his younger brother, mufti e a'zam. and alaHazrat says about his son:

    Hamidu minni wa ana min Hamid

  4. not aware that abrar sang naats too!
    neither have i heard this naat.

    it seems to have been based on faiz's poem, 'aao baazaar mein paa ba jholaaN chalein" in terms of its meter.

    the second line, 'khottay sikke jahaan pe chalte hain' i find to be not respectful enough because it can be construed to have a negative as well as the intended positive meaning. that's why ala hazrat warned against any tom dick and harry writing naats. it is 'like walking on a knife edge'.

    literally it means, 'where false coins are valid tender'--not very laudatory is it?
    what he means to say is that it [madina] is a place where even sinful, lowlifes [eg like me] are accepted due to the generosity of Our Master صلى الله عليه وسلم but the language and choice of expression is, IMHO, unfortunate.

    i like the na'at that is sung by abrar-ul-haq that has words something like this:

    aao bazaar e mustafa ko chale
    khote sikke jahan pe chalte hain

    kal bhi unke TukRoN pe palte the
    ab bhi TukRoN pe unke palte haiN


    i think owais qadri has recited it too.

    does anyone have a link to it?
