Paying tributes to the services of late Khalid in recitation of Na’at, Dr Qadri urged that the tune of a Na’at should be set keeping in view the respect of the Holy Prophet (SAW) and the reciters following popular trends in this regard must beware that they could overstep the limits in the race for winning popularity.

He announced that the Centre would train the Na’at reciters in this regard.

Centre’s Director Dr Fakhr-ud-Din Noori said the institute formed by Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has earned a name in a short time in the field.

Greeting Dr Qadri for setting up the Centre, Khwaja Fareedi lauded the style of late Khalid in reciting Na’at.

Others who spoke included anchorperson Safdar Ali Mohsin, Sahibzada Tasleem Ahmed Sabri, Allama Naveed Haideri, senior Na’at recite Hafiz Mehboob Ahmed Hamdani, Sarwar Hussain Naqshbandi, Allama Shehzad Hussain Mujaddadi, Afzal Naushahi, Masood Shakir, Sardar Khalid, Qari Younas Qadri, Syed Hasnain, Hissaan al-Mustafa, and Syed Ijaz Hussain Aajiz.
