Our lives have become very stressful. We are always running around, trying to get maximum things done, but still somehow we are unable to achieve everything we set out to do. This is not the case for everyone but for most of us. Those of us whom we see in control of their lives always find some time to unwind and relax. Soulful music can do just that!
Nasheeds are Islamic songs which have grown very popular. One reason for their popularity is their ability to give peace to the listeners, which is the message of Islam. If you listen to Nasheeds regularly or have just started listening you will agree that every time you hear a beautiful Nasheed you feel at ease.
Here are a few Nasheeds which should be part of your playlist.
