Some Beautiful Qawwali Music

Peace, one and all…

Here are some beautiful qawwals I found on You Tube recently.  The lyrics of the first song were written by the famous Sufi saint Fariduddin Ganj-i-Shakar, and are also found in the Sikh holy scriptures, the Guru Granth Sahib.

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan: Farida Turia Turia Ja

The second song (again sung by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan) is entitled Menoon Yaar Manaunoon Fursat Nahin.  It comes in three parts.  Enjoy and may God bless all who pass by.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Ma’as salama,

    Welcome to my online home. Allah bless you always.

    Unfortunately, I don’t speak Urdu or Punjabi, so I can’t translate myself! 😦

  2. Wa alaykum assalaam brother,

    Thank you for the warm welcome to your blog.

    Ah, it’s a shame you don’t know the language. Although I understand Urdu enough to hold a conversation in it, that’s still not good enough to appreciate the poetry, too many of the key words in a lot of naats are unknown to me so I’m always asking for translations from people.

    Who knows, maybe someone else will come along and help inshaAllah 🙂
