Rawdat al-Shuhada’

This devotional hymn has been overlooked until recently in the English speaking world, but was once sung in awe amongst the peoples within the Ottoman and Mughal empires. Written by Imam Husayn Vaiz Kashifi (d.1505), it recalls the sufferings of the Ahl ul-Bayt and the reward that lies in wait for them in the next world. Originally written in Farsi, sections of it have been translated into English and sung by Alboran.
