Yesterday while coming back to Lahore, when the bus stopped at a roadside restaurant, I heard this Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan qawwali for the first time. Having listened to almost everything he has recorded, coming across something new is always rare and exciting.

It’s a na’atiya qawwali — na’atiya means something in praise of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) — but while generally na’atiya poetry regards him as the most important, the most beloved and of high stature, this one speaks of him as a patron and savior of the poor. (Sohail, Nov 6, ’14)

Lyrics

Mere maula tu mere te reham kar de
Tenu teri raheemi da wasta ee
Takk aib mere utton payin parda
Tenu teri kareemi da wasta ee
Jisde sadqe tu sanu bakhshna ae
Os noore qadeemi da wasta ee
Din mehshar na Bari di puchh hove
Mustafa di yateemi da wasta ee

Jisdian akhian chon ohdi yaad andar
Wagda din ae raati neer hove
Ohnu kidhre ghareeb na aakh behna
Ohde jed na koi ameer hove
Ohde dar te gadawan di kih dassan
Karke nazar ikko dnya badal dende
Oh nai mangda takht o taaj Bari
Jo Mohammad de dar da fakeer hove

Kamli wale Mohammad ton sadqe main jaaN
Kamli wale Mohammad ton sadqe main jaaN
Kamli wale Mohammad ton sadqe main jaaN
Jihne aa ke ghareebaN di banh pharr layee
Main saqde jaan
Main saqde sadqe jaan


Kamli wale Mohammad ton sadqe main jaaN
Jihne aa ke ghareebaN di banh pharr layee

Ohde bahjon koi dunya te pyara nahi
Ohde warga koi jagg te sahara nahi
Je na hunde Mohammad na hunda jahan
Je na hunde Mohammad na hunda jahan
Jihne aa ke ghareebaN di banh pharr layee

Dasso ghaaran ch royate kehna layi?
Paida sohna je hoya te kehna layi?
Kyon nahi mangde tusi kaali kamli di chaan
Jihne aa ke ghareebaN di banh pharr layee
Jihne aa ke ghareebaN di banh pharr layee

Laaya baduaN nu seene kamal hoya
Koi habshi ton Hzarat Bilal hoya
Aaye dar te sawali nu keeti nahi naa
Aaye dar te sawali nu keeti nahi naa
Jihne aa ke ghareebaN di banh pharr layee
Jihne aa ke ghareebaN di banh pharr layee

Naal ungali ishare te chann toreya
Gaya suraj aghan wall pichhan moreya
Kalma sohne Mohammad da parheya buttan
Kalma sohne Mohammad da parheya buttan
Jihne aa ke ghareebaN di banh pharr layee

Veri pathar vi maran te hassde hassde rahe
Fer vi raah e khuda sab nu dassde rahe
Bari sifftaN ch bhareyan hai sara Quran
Bari sifftaN ch bhareyan hai sara Quran
Kalma sohne Mohammad da parheya buttan
Jihne aa ke ghareebaN di banh pharr layee
