Jawad Ahmad

Jawad Ahmad is a Pakistani singer and musician.Jawad first captured Pakistan's attention as a person who called attention to the transcendental existence of God through the song '"Allah Meray Dil kay Andar" which most say showed a way to inner peace. The lyrical expression that he has used to portray his inclination towards Sufism bears traces of Ghalib and Faiz who are known to have emphasised on the same values so as to eradicate all barriers that hinder the establishment of a connection with God and differentiate amongst human beings by placing them into groupings of race and class. He has published many albums and when the chaotic earthquake in Pakistan struck, he sang at many fundraisers and supported rebuilding his country. He has also performed several times at APPNA.
