All about me
Born in Glasgow, UK on 25th March 1990, Muhammad Milad Mustafa Raza Qadri started reciting Nasheeds at the age of three. His interest and love for the recitation of the praises of the Beloved Prophet (PBUH) came from listening to various lectures of his eminence, Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, on the love and obedience of the Beloved Prophet (PBUH).
Having gained this affection to the praises of the Beloved Prophet (PBUH), Muhammad Milad Mustafa Raza Qadri started reciting Nasheeds by listening to the various Naat Khwan, who had recited in front of Shaykh-ul-Islam, before each lecture.
This continued to further enhance Muhammad Milad Mustafa Raza Qadri’s talent and people would love listening to him, as he was barely three years old and he was already managing to recite very well.
As he continued to progress and his defining moment in his recitations came at the age of three, when he recited ‘meri barbad basti ko basa do Ya Rasoolullah (PBUH)’, in front of his eminence, Shaykh-ul-Islam. This was a great privilege for him, as Shaykh-ul-Islam was the one that had lead him to this path and to recite in front of him was a great honour and source of blessings.
Once Muhammad Milad Raza Qadri had completed his recitation, Shaykh-ul-Islam made a supplication (Dua) for him and that supplication was the beginning of Muhammad Milad Mustafa Raza Qadri’s passion for the love and praises of the Beloved Prophet (PBUH).
The flame of love was kept alive and further nurtured by listening to various lectures and Naats of Shaykh-ul-Islam. He once again recited in front of Shaykh-ul-Islam at the age of five and this time it was from one of Shaykh-ul-Islam’s own Naats – ‘tere hote janam liya hota’.
Having gained this precious gift from Shaykh-ul-Islam, it is the aim of Muhammad Milad Mustafa Raza Qadri to pass this on to other youngsters through the recitation of the Nasheeds and that love reaches the ears of all the lovers of the Beloved Prophet (PBUH), through the captivating voice of Muhammad Milad Mustafa Raza Qadri. Therefore, Muhammad Milad Mustafa Raza Qadri continued reciting at various places; mosques, radio stations and gatherings within houses.
This further enhanced his talent and boosted his confidence, and he continued with the sole purpose to make our Beloved Prophet (PBUH) happy. This continued for many years and he has won several awards for being such a great Naat Khwan.
Furthermore, as his aim was to please none other than our Beloved Prophet (PBUH), he has dedicated all the royalties from his CDs and Mehfils to the mission of Minhaj-ul-Quran, which is the propagation and uplift of Islam.
Muhammad Milad Mustafa Raza Qadri has travelled to many countries in the world and has performed Mehfils and programmes in countries including: Ireland, Holland, Norway, Pakistan, Hong Kong, Syria, Turkey and all over the UK. This has resulted in an immeasurable increase of love and respect for the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in countless amounts of hearts and has changed many lives and insha’Allah will continue to do so. He is undoubtedly, tremendously well known for his beautiful and unique style of expressing his great love for the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) amongst the Muslim Ummah especially the youth and his Naats are on the tongue of every young person in the UK.
