Khalid Mehmood

Khalid Mehmood was born in Pakistan and currently lives USA. His childhood was spent learning traditional sciences at Pakistan Air force School. However, Quran recitation and reading Nasheeds was his passion since childhood. At age nineteen, he moved to USA for higher studies and completed his MBA and MIS from Rutgers University, New Jersey, USA.

In 2005, while visiting Pakistan, Khalid met Sheikh Tariq Jameel and Sheikh Zulfiqaar Naqshbandi, two great scholars of Islam in Pakistan and made a conscious decision to acquire deeper knowledge of Islam. Since then, Khalid has been spending time in the company of different scholars and Ulmas in pursuit of strengthening Faith i.e. Imaan and learning Seerah of our prophet Muhammad SWS.

Khalid has been reading Nasheeds since childhood and has won many awards for best performance at numerous occasions. Allah Subhana Watala has blessed him with great mentors, both in Islamic literature and in Nasheed recitation. Brother Junaid Jamshed has been Khalid’s mentor and both have performed Nasheeds together at many occasions. Khalid also performed Nasheeds on Pakistani TV channels like ARY Digital, QTV, GEO and ARY Zauq. .
