South Street Events- Ghiyarvee shareef : Allama Barkat Ahmad Chishti saib at READING South Street Mosque.
part of the speech at Reading Islamic Centre (South Street Mosque) on 9 August 2015. Unfortunately I only arrived part way through the speech, so only managed to record a small sample for record purpose.
The following Naat is the most well-known of HazratPir Syed Mehr Ali Shah Sahib of Golra Sharif writings in verse. It has a grandeur equalled by few other Naats in any language. It’s concluding verse in particular is unmatched in it’s beauty and emotional appeal.
English Lyrics and translation
aj sik mitraaN dee vadheeRi ay
kyon dilree udaas ganeree ay
looN looN vich shawq changeri ay
aj nainaaN laiyaaN kyon jhaRiyaaN!
Today the yearning for the loved one is great indeed!
Why is my heart saddened, like a reed?
The desire is aflame, running through my veins!
Why are my adoring eyes today dazzled by the beloved?
