About Rashid Azam
There are few people who are born with innate traits and by degree they polish them and present like a shining start. Same goes in every field but as far as naat khwani is concerned the name of RASHID AZAM needs no introduction. His name defines his work and struggle. Allah has blessed him with melodious voice that can turn the feelings of a person around. Rashid Azam is one of the legend naat reciters in the world who is not only known by his naats but also his innovative work for the delepment of naat and naat khwani. He is not only a first-rated naat khwan but also a self-effacing person. He is a man of words undoubtedly. He not only recites but also write naats and compose by himself this quality differs him from other naat khwans in the field. Let me say without a shred of doubt his best friend Zamir Khan also put his personal effotrs to buck RASHID AZAM up in his career in real sense.
Rashid Azam has been reciting naat since his childhood under the supreme guidance of his elder brother Raees Azam after becoming the disciple of Moin Khan Qadri in 1988 and learnt the art of naat then he finally started his journey and collected blessings and popularity from the heaven. His benefactor Ghulam Yassin Qadri (Late) also introduced him in a great number of Mahafil. In 1992 he left competing in Mahafil so that he could centralize his audio cassettes. He associated with Radio Pakistan in 1988 and recited first naat in a program called “BUCHON KI DUNYA”. Due to his interpersonal and intrapersonal skills he kept on stepping ahead in his field. His naats were recorded by different t.v channels like PTV, STN, NTM, ARY, QTV and other.
He also received a number of awards through his career of naat in different years for say:
- DEEDAR E MADINA AWARD (ALQADRI CAMPANY 1992)
- MADINY KI TARAF CHALO AYE BE SAHARO (ALQADRI CAMPANY 1992)

There are so many other audios and awards that he earned and enjoyed in his life. He also published his book named NOOR.E.KAINAAT while publishing and setting of his book DR. SHEHZAD AHMED also played a vital role to complete, I personally pay my gratitude to him. His one of the best qualities is that I can never forget that he has been conducive for everyone in his life.
