Post 572 : Music 48 : Allah Mohammed Char Yaar by Nusrat Saheb

I am not a religious person at all, infact I am a confirmed atheist. And yet, at times, I can’t but ignore the sublime grace of devotional music.

If you hear Allah Mohammed Char Yaar by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan saheb and it does not impress upon you, all I can say, the seeds of your inner music are dead.

This is Sufi Qawwali at its best, the more you listen, the more it haunts, first it gets into your skin, then blood, then cells and before you know its all over you. Gets deep into your rooh (closest english equivalent,”soul”, “id”, “identity”).

Go listen to this song, be blessed and connect with the universe. It will do much more than any ritual or n times of temple going will ever do for you.

(Warning : This song floats in you head, long after your Ipod has gone silent. My wife and I both experienced the same haunting sense. Once it gets in, its very difficult to get out.)

From http://thecorner.wordpress.com/2008/07/31/where-angels-walk-uncloaked/

The title of this song in English means: Allah (God), Muhammad and the Four Friends (4 of the most important Chishti saints).

Allah!  Help this ‘I’ in its journey to You, that one day ‘I’ too might gaze out open the stars of inward heaven.

And my last prayer is in praise of God, Sustainer of All Being.

From http://pakizm.com/nusrat/allahmohammadcharyaar.html, by the peer Salim Chisti

haji kaabe de gird tawaaf karde, kaaba kare tawaaf subah shaam tera
saare aakh dene ganj-e-shakar tenu, faiz pul jahan de aam tera
naam lendyae mushkil hal howe, aisa mushkil kusha hai naam tera
dar te aaye deewane di laj rakh le, bara naaz menu mei ghualam tera

allah muhammad char yaar... haji, khawaj, qutub, farid

allah pak mohammad chare yaar, haji, qutub, farid farid hove
tera paak watan subhanallah, jehra dekh lave ohdi eid hove

jannat da naqsha pakpattan jithe chishti sabri sajde karan
ohda akbari hajj honda eh jehnu peer farid di deed hove

kaaba pakpattan diyan galiyan ne
mera kaaba pakpattan
mera kaaba pakpattan

allah muhammad char yaar...

faridi naam ka jag mein hai

mangto ka dar pe yeh lala-gaah hai
sir ko jhukaye shah o gada hai
haath mein kasa lab pe sada hai. kya

haq farid mere baba farid
haq farid mere baba farid
haq farid mere baba farid

aankhon mein aise bas gayi surat farid ki
dil maangta hai aur bhi qurbat farid ki

ganj shakar sarkar deedar de ke ker ke karam te sohniya eid ker de
tenu wasta sakhi shabbir da ae pori dilan di aj ummed ker de
hind-al-wali ka sadqa ata ker ke tegh-e-ishq ke naal saheed kar de
israel vi aaye te asi saim tayye jaam farid farid kar ke

haq farid mere baba farid
haq farid mere baba farid
haq farid mere baba farid

baba pak pattan diyan galiyen ne
aaye faiz jahan de waliyan ne
hai yeh pak dawara jis dar te
khusrau da peer mureed hove

khwaja qutub da raaj dulhara ae
khwaja qutub da raaj dulhara ae
khwaja qutub da raaj dulhara ae

khwaja qutub da raaj dulhara ae
dukhiyan da fareed sahara ae

ouh kyun na sabir ho jaye
jehra teri nazar da shaheed hove
bekhud darwaza jannat da
hai peer fareed de qadma vich

chalo chaliyeh ous davare te
jehre mangtian de sada eid hove

Allah Pak Mohammad Chare Yaar, Haji, Khwaja, Qutub, Farid Hove
