Atif Aslam Recites the 99 Names of Allah for a Coke Studio Special

His soulful voice has given us some beautiful gems like Tajdar-e-Haram before. And once again, he has brought something that will nourish and rejuvenate your soul – titled Asma-Ul-Husna (which translates to the 99 attributes of Allah), the three and a half minute track has been produced by Zulfiqar “Xulfi” Jabbar Khan, while the video has been directed by Asim Raza.

Though Asma-ul-Husna has multiple renditions, Coke Studio’s version “manifests a multilayer soundscape, beginning with the actual sounds of black hole collision, followed by the echoes of “Allah” from the iconic Azaan of Makkah”.

According to a press release, the “recitation borrows 24 voices from across the country to build a large vocal acapella personality”. Some of those voices include Abdullah Qureshi, Adnan Dhool, Xulfi, Mujeeb Rizvi, Bilawal Lahooti and Samya Gohar.

“To further enhance the grandeur of the acapella, Melvin Arthur, a virtuoso musician from Quetta Pakistan, worked on crafting the choir arrangement using vocals from around the world. The track also demonstrates a unique arrangement of duffs as their grand ensemble reverberates in a large space,” the press release further said, adding that Atif brought together the whole composition with his powerful recitation.

Asma-Ul-Husna is an ode to the unwavering human spirit, an expression of spiritual healing and nourishment, and reassurance of better times ahead.”

In these trying times, this will bring tears to your eyes and a little calm from the anxiety of the situation.  Listen to it below:
