Atif begins the song with his soulful voice and it captures your attention right from the start as it talks about one’s connection with God in the purest manner

Aaye Kuch Abr

In the Sufi song of Aaye Kuch Abr, Atif Aslam found words that gave expression to his silence, drawing on something deep within them.

With his mastery over language, Faiz described many multiple layers of meaning. ‘’is Tarah Apni khaamushi goonji, goya har samt se jawaab aye, which translates ‘’in such a way my own silence reverberated as if an answer came from every direction’’.

These lines in the song provoke us to listen to more of Faiz’s song 

Aye Dil-e-Nadaan

Aye Dil-e Nadaan was the last song written by lyricist/poet Jan Nisar Akhtar. 

The despair, the agony, the melancholy, and the pessimism in the lyrics…” kya qayamat hai, kya musibat hai, Keh nhi sakte, Kiske Armaan hai”.

Lata’s voice hits the highest chords while desperation comes and emptiness conquers.

Arziyaan

Arziyaan is a Sufi song of Bollywood by Kailash Kher and Javed Ali that has the divine spirituality of love.

Arziyaan is from the movie Delhi 6 and is another intrinsic song that makes you lost in the devotion and love of God.

Mitwa

Mitwa, a Sufi song by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan from the movie Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna is a light Sufi song that you can listen to while taking long walks.

‘’Mere mann yeh bata de tu,kisi aur chala tu ”, that translates’ ‘ my heart please tell me, in which direction you are going” and sometimes aren’t we all asking this same question?

Allah ke Bande

Allah ke bande is an incredibly golden song which is by legend Kailash Kher who is a true savior during hard times.
