Pakistan top actress Mahira Khan remembers late qawwal Amjad Sabri.
Starlet took to social media sharing an old video of the famed qawwal’s childhood reciting Allama Iqbal’s poem “Lab Pe Aati Hai Dua”.
Mahira Khan captioned the video clip saying, “This video makes me sad but it also makes me smile. Amjad Sabri was taken away from us too soon… Here he is, a little boy, reciting Allama Iqbal’s ‘Lab pe aati hai dua’. Mukamal dua hai yeh”
Amjad Farid Sabri was a Pakistani qawwal, naat khawan, and a proponent of the Sufi Muslim tradition.
Son of Ghulam Farid Sabri and nephew of Maqbool Ahmed Sabri of the Sabri Brothers, Amjad emerged as one of South Asia’s most prominent qawwali singers.
He was gunned down in the city of Karachi four years ago during the month of Ramazan.
