The majestic Abida Parveen weaving magic with her voice and the words of Khawaja Ghulam Fareed.

The heart-piercing Pathanay Khan also sings the same kalam:

The piece sung by Abida Parveen is irregular. She has masterly knitted together various verses from different kalaams of Ghulam Fareed into one song. I am writing lyrics of the original few lines, detailed work on it would follow.

Every song that I share on my blog here is not a mere song. Please try to get mesmerized with Baba Ghulam Fareed’s love.  Through his words, Ghulam Fareed is trying to express his love for his beloved, Hazur Muhammad (PBHU)

Sufi Poetry would not be the same after reading Khawaja Ghulam Fareed. Sufi music wont be the same after listening to the songs above.
