Singer Atif Aslam has released a soul-stirring rendition of ‘Mustafa Jaan e Rehmat’ in reverence of the holy month of Ramadan. The naat is a rendition of the famous recitation ‘Mustafa Jaan e Rehmat’ written by Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi and performed over the years by several people.
A group of five people led by Atif Aslam has performed the latest rendition of the naat. The group consists of Nouman Javed, Ahsan Pervez Mehdi, Kumail Jaffery, and Ali Pervez Mehdi.
All the men can be seen dressed in simple white kurta shalwar. Singers have recited the naat without additional music. The pace of the naat has been set mild to slow with a consistent low-contrast look.

The video comes at a time when humanity is striving to survive against pandemic coronavirus. While the video intends to uplift hopes in these testing times, it is also an ode to the frontline workers who are risking their lives to serve humanity.
