Sufi Night Awaits You All To Join It on a Musical Evening this Friday

“Hum Mashal e Rah Foundation” has organized the biggest fundraising Sufi Night in Lahore as a celebration of its 2nd anniversary. Hum Mashal-e-Rah is the 1st Foundation in Pakistan of its own kind that works to promote awareness, provide support services and develop resources to help children with special needs. Not only this, they also assist families to fulfill the demands of such dedicated care and special consideration needed for the brought up of such children.

The night which is designed for a great cause will be studded with great people.  The renowned Sufi Singers and Performers of Pakistan including Sanam Marvi, Sher Mian Daad Khan (qawal) and Sain Abbas Dholwala will mesmerize you with their devotional music and the Sufi & Rumi Raqs will make you forget about everything and take you to the state of ecstasy.


Sanam Marvi will be there to thrill you with her powerful vocals. She is a Sufi-Folk singer, born in Hyderabad to ‘Faqeer Ghulam Rasool’, who was also a Sindhi folk singer. Sanam’s unique, adaptable and contrasting textured voice sets her apart from most of her peers.

Sanam got her initial training from her father. She used to go to shrines with him where her father would perform and she would spend hours observing the environment. She later got trained under the watchful eyes of ‘Ustad Fateh Ali Khan’ of Hyderabad, who gave her enough confidence and skills to make her debut on the National Television of Pakistan

Qawal Sher Miandad Khan will offer you spiritual nourishment with his performance of Sufiana Kalam. Miandad is a famous Qawwal of Pakistan, born in Pakpattan, to Ustad Miandad Khan. He adopted Qawali as his family tradition and got training from his father. He is the cousin of Shehenshah-e-Qawwali Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’. Miandad’s work is not just admired in Pakistan but all over the world.

You all will be overwhelmed to know that besides folk songs and sufiana qalam, there will be thrilling performance of Dhol by Sain Abbas Dholwala that will make you leave your seats and indulge in Dhamal on the electrifying beats.


Ab Mera Ishq Dhamalon Se Kahin Agay Hai

Ab Zaruri Hai k Main Wajd Mein Laun Tujh Ko

Tu Nahi Manta Matti Ka Dhu’an Ho Jana

To Abhi Raqs Karun? Ho k Dikhaun Tujh Ko?

 

Rumi Raqs will take to the world of spiritual ecstasy enabling you to experience the feel of unique, fascinating and mystifying Raqs of whirling dervishes.

The origin of whirling is from Jalaluddin Rumi. It is dance of ecstasy that entrances the performer and let him turn his back to the whole world. The philosophy behind the entire ritual accompanied by rhythmic breathing and chanting of Allah’s name or ‘La Ilaha IllAllah’ symbolizes a Sufi’s struggle to gain nearness to his Beloved (God).

We Came Whirling Out of Nothingness

Scattering Stars like Dust

The Stars Made a Circle

And in the Middle

We Dance!

*(Rumi)*
