Waharp Yusoff (Telaga Biru Sdn Bhd) and a group of teachers from Sekolah Menengah Agama Persekutuan Kajang; Ustaz Zatul Akmam, Mr. Najid & Mr. Md Khan Subari handpicked 5 students from the school nasheed group All For Ummah to form a smaller, more mobile and marketable group. Saujana original line up was Suffian Amrin, Zalie Rahman, Khairul Idzwan Baharin, Faizul Hizal Ghazali and Hakimi Harun. Due to career demands, Idzwan, Faizul and Hakimi found it hard to fully commit on the group.
In the year 2007, they took in Shahir Zawawi (from the group Grimis, UIA) and Wan Najran (from Rast) to substitute for the three. In 2008 Shahir departed base on personal reasons. Later in 2009 Idzwan, Faizul and Hakimi officially resigned from Saujana. The group immediately recruit Adi Aziz (from Farhan) to complete the current line up. ALBUMS Saujana successfully debuted with the album ‘Saujana’ in the year 1997, produced by Mujahid Abdul Wahab, achieving gross sales of more than 80,000 units in their home country.
They released their second album Saujana II (1999), which entered the Indonesian market and sold for more than 50,000 units. Songs like Sepohon Kayu, Keluarga Bahagia, Bulan Bintang and Nur Malam earned Saujana the status as one of the renowned nasheed groups in Malaysia alongside Raihan, Rabbani, Hijjaz, Brothers, NowSeeheart and few others. Since then Saujana has released 5 more albums. Those albums are Kembara Cinta(2001), Rahsia (2003), 5 Bintang (2005), Jalan Sehala - Duet album with Nowseeheart ( 2007) and Nota Cinta (2010). The group currently performs in concerts and events all around Malaysia and occasionally Indonesia and Singapore, singing songs from their latest and previous albums, bringing beautiful messages of Islam through the means of nasheed. Their latest album released in 2013 is Aku Cinta Allah which is the zikr album.
