Product Description

Product Description

CD

The Last Prophet functions as an excellent, easy-on-the-ears introduction to the great Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and his party. Featuring rarer selections of the ensemble's extensive repertoire and recorded without reverb effect, the CD meshes the party's amazing vocal art into songs that contain all the fervour that is the nature of qawwali while still retaining a rhythmic, melodious sound familiar to Westerners. "Maki Madni" is a luxurious, two- tempoed tune growing into a wonderful, exploding chorus in praise of Muhammad; "Gunj- E-Shakar" is special in its portentous, urgent cadence. While Nusrat's vocal expertise isn't as incredibly full and wide-ranged as in earlier recordings, this album is still the better pick for those in need of a Nusrat introduction that's lighter in intensity than the wildest, most intense Nusrat and party. --Karen Karleski

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Matloub Husayn-Ali-Khan on 21 Dec. 2008
Format: Audio CD
The Last Prophet was my fourth Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan CD, after the Night Song Album. I came across this Album in late 1998, when I was doing research into the needs of young people within the Sheffield city centre at the Youth Information Support Centre (YISC). Around lunch, I went to the Forum (shops) and one particular shop sold Music CD's and my attention was automatically drawn to a CD & bought it with the title: 'The Last Prophet'. As the title suggests (to us Muslims) our prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the Last Prophet! On listening to the tracks, I was immediately stunned by track 3: 'Gung-E-Shakar' - which literally brought Nusrat's voice to 'life' what I can only describe as a mystical message from beyond the grave! Although the CD cover describes Nusrat's Qawwali's (utterances) as "music's greatest living star - mystic message transcending cultural boundaries". For me, the cultural boundaries are less so in that I come from that culture and it was the transcendence of Nusrat's powerful message that struck home from beyond time & space and its dedication to the Sufi Saint Baba Farid Shakar Gung. Nusrat's lyrics also reveal that: "...other Saints bow down to him-this is a special reward to him from God..." It is now over ten years ago - my daughter still remembers this track with affection. In 2000, I played it on Radio Ramadhan Sheffield; afterwards I burst into spontaneous emotion.

My other favourite tracks including track four: "Sochan Dongian" meaning: 'Deep Thoughts' & is about a woman in deep depression about her beloved and she says: "...he has left me and gone away - without letting me know my mistake..." The opening track "Maki Madni" is dedicated to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH): "...You are the Last Prophet; there is no one comparable to you in the whole universe...

If you are a lover of religious music, though like me you don't have to be religious, this is a uniquely enchanting work. It is, like many pieces of religious works, surpasses religion itself in its sincerity and devotion, leading even the unreligious to a trance of enjoyment. It is certainly recommended.

Inspirational 26 Feb. 2001
By "arrow-142" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I own many of this great man's albums,but this is without a doubt one of his most brilliant and certainly his most inspirational cd.The music on it is sincere and one could listen to it for hours and hours.It is very effective on long distance journeys and at times can be very relaxing.Maki Madni and Sochan Dongian are inspirational songs and there is a deeper meaning to both these tracks.However,most of you will probably just enjoy listening to this mans inspirational voice and the excellent beat to most of these songs on this album.I am certain you will enjoy it.

A Devotional Selection 4 July 2000
By Zahra Jamshed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is true qawwali selection. I will strongly recommend the readers to look into it. It has the devotional element to the nth degree and one becomes very emotional listening to it. I was very touched by the first two Qawwalis. They have a strong emotional and religious bent in them and one gets carried away while concentrating on the verses. The last two are equally worth listening. The 3rd one talks about the Sufi Baba Farid Gunj-ae-Shukar. And has a strong tinge of a qawwali recited on Urs of the Sufi Buzurgs. The last one has more of a romantic influence. In short, a very nice blend and a keep!

Unique devotional mystic music from the Sufi tradition 4 Jan. 2011
By C. Collins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Last Prophet by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is a unique listening experience, especially for someone centered in the western tradition and unfamiliar with Islamic inspired music. These songs are called Qawwali because they are devotional music derived from Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam. Sufism developed in 10th century Iran and spread to the Indian subcontinent by the 12th century where millions were converted to Islam. It is possible to think of the swirling Sufi dancers of Turkey as the physical equivalent of Qawwali songs with their swirling, spiraling vocals. Qawwal refers to a wise or philosophical saying which comprises the lyrics to much Qawwali music and is meant to bring listeners to another state of mind toward spiritual enlightenment or deeper inner knowledge. The music is very popular in Pakistan. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's family has been involved in classical Quwwali music for 600 years. The Last Prophet is the first song and refers to Muhammad, the last prophet to mankind. Another selection is about Gunj-E-Shakar, the Sufi saint. The repetitive nature of the music enduces consciousness changes but the vocalalization is different from that which the western ear is accustomed to hearing.
