A former pop icon, Junaid Jamshed left his career as a recording artist with the group ‘Vital Signs’ to join the ranks of Pakistan’s highly respected Qur’an reciters and nasheed singers. The departure from pop music was associated with his participation in the Tablighi Jamaat organization starting in 2004. He has since released best-selling albums of Islamic songs. Muslim Charity has achieved a great deal under his leadership and expanded its operations to 16 countries. He has almost 2.8 million fans on Facebook.
