Bringing a message of hope and reassurance, Coke Studio released Asma-ul-Husna recited by Atif Aslam and its the most soul-stirring thing you’ll listen to today.
According to a press release, “Asma-Ul-Husna is an ode to the unwavering human spirit, an expression of spiritual healing and nourishment, and reassurance of better times ahead.”
The three-and-a-half-minute track is on the 99 attributes of Allah. The recitation was produced by Zulfiqar Jabbar Khan alias Xulfi, while the video was directed by Asim Raza.

Melvin Arthur, a virtuoso musician from Quetta, worked on crafting the choir arrangement using vocals from around the world.
Beginning with the sound of a black hole collision, followed by the echoes of “Allah” from the iconic Azaan of Makkah, the recitation also includes vocal acapella, recorded at home and at project studios across Pakistan, by 24 artists.
The track also demonstrates a unique arrangement of duffs as their grand ensemble reverberates in a large space. The whole composition finally comes together seamlessly in the vocals of Aslam reciting the powerful verses.
The recitation video has already grabbed the attention of thousands of social media users with over 400,000 views within six hours on YouTube.
Earlier, Aslam performed two masterpieces Tajdaar-e-Haram and Wohi Khuda Hai for Coke Studio which were equally soul-stirring and passionate expressions of divine devotion.
