History of Naat Khawani

The act of Naat Khawani has been recorded on the most memorable events in Islam. Like entry in Madina (at the time of Hijrat-e-Madina ( ہجرت مدینھ )), entry in Mecca (at the time of Victory of Mecca ( فتح مکھ )) was also celebrated by reciting Naats loudly. On this occasion Abdullah Bin Rawaha (RA) were walking in front of the Islamic army and were reciting the verses of Naat loudly. Umar (RA) came to him and asked is it justified that you are reciting the verses loudly near harm حرم and that too in the presence of the prophet (PBUH). The prophet (PBUH) himself intervened and said: Don’t stop him from that. His verses are wounding the hearts of کفار like arrows.
