My biggest wish is to recite Azaan at Holy Kaaba: Atif Aslam
With international tours constantly lined up, multiple Bollywood singles, several international collaborations and a fan reach that spans across the globe, Atif Aslam has solidified his place as one of the predominant voices in the subcontinent today.
The singer recently made an appearance on a TV show and expressed his desire to recite Azaan at the holiest place on earth, the Holy Kaaba one day.
He said he would do anything for that one person who would help him fulfill the wish.
While appearing on a TV show with anchor Hamid Mir, Aslam rejected rumours that he was quitting the music industry for religious reasons. However, he said, “I am not quitting music.”
“The topic of leaving the music industry is one that’s quite personal. But I want to keep myself attached to my religion while still being part of the world. I won’t say I will be giving up on music entirely, but I want to highlight important aspects of religion [through music] like the 99 names of Allah and Tajdar-e-Haram,” he said.
“It’s my biggest wish to recite Azaan in the Holy Kaaba. I will do anything and work for that person my entire life who will fulfill this precious wish of mine,” Aslam added.
