Peace, one and all…


Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyum (‘O Living One!  O Self-Subsisting One!’) is one of my favourite qawwali songs.  For those unfamiliar, this is a song in praise of God.  Here is a beautiful three-part rendition by the world famous Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.  The lyrics are available, as is an English translation.

Enjoy and may Allah bless all who pass by.
