    Rubai - Omar Khayyam

    Paimana bideh ki khumaar astam
    Man aashiq-e chashm-e mast-e-yar astam
    Bideh, bideh, ki khumaar astam


    Bring me the glass so I may lose myself
    I am in love with my beloveds intoxicating eyes
    Bring (the glass), bring (the glass), so I may lose myself;

    You have captured my heart and I wander aimlessly without you;
    My love come/return, and see the state Im in....................

  4. Kabir Das Poetry: Bhala Hua Mori Gagri Phooti

    Like other Sufis, Kabir helped unite all.

    Munshi Raziuddin has helped preserve this treasure of knowledge and poetry.

    The late Munshi Raziuddin, a Sufi at heart, Ustad of Qawwali and Khayal sang for over sixty-five years. He successfully passed on the tradition to his sons “Farid Ayaz & Abu Muhammad Qawwal brothers”. The group in this rendition consists of himself, his four sons, grandsons and others.

    Munshi Raziuddin’s family has sung Qawwali for eight centuries. He belonged to the Delhi Gharana of "Ustad Tan Ras Khan Sahab" who was a teacher of the last Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar. Descendants of Mian Samad Bin Ibrahim who was the first pupil of Hazrat Ameer Khusroo and the Group Leader of the team, formed by Hazrat Ameer Khusroo called "Qawwal Bachoon Ka Gharana".

    The Government of Pakistan honoured Munshi Raziuddin with the Pride of Performance in 1990 for his devotion to the field of Qawwali and research in music.

  5. This is another beautiful example of qawwali sung by the Grand Master Munshi Raziuddin from his archives.

    Here the poetry starts in one raag and the kalam "Mang, Phir mang" and after about 20 minutes blends into another raag and the shikwa "Kab Tak Mere Moala". Around the 30th minute markthe master switches to "Jawab e Shikwa" and the original raag.

    "Har Cheez Musabib-e-Sabab Se Mango
    Minat Se, Khushamad se, Adab se Mango

    Kyon Ghair ke Aage Haath Phailate ho
    Bande ho Agar Rab ke to Rab se Mango

    Kya Faida Fikr-e-baisho Kam se ho Ga
    Ham Kya hein, jo koi Kaam Hum se hoga

    Jo kuchh bhi hua, hua karam se tere
    Aur jo kucch ho ga, tere karam se hoga

    Dar Dar k....sta Phira ley ke Iltija
    Paya na Kahin Manzil-e-maqsood ka Pata

    Aakhir tere Karam ne pukara Idhar to Aa
    Aa Phir Idhar Aa, Tu Phir Mang Phir Mang"
