Pee Ja Ayaam Ki Talkhee Ko Bhi Hans Kar Nasir: The Genius of Nasir Kazmi and Abida Parveen
Pee Ja Ayaam Ki Talkhee Ko Bhi Hans Kar Nasir
Gham Ko Sahne Main Bhi Qudrat Ne Mazaa Rakha Hai
پی جا ایام کی تلخی کو بھی ہنس کر ناصر
غم کو سہنے میں بھی قدرت نے مزہ رکھا ہے
Drink with smiles the difficulty of times, O’Nasir
Nature has even enclosed enjoyment in hardship also
Jab Se Tune Mujhe Deewana Bana Rakha Hai remains Abida Parveen’s most loved Ghazal.
Begum Abida is the undisputed Queen of Sufiana and Arfana Kalam, however besides such genre she is also a multi-talented artist who is equally known for her amazing and poignant Ghazals
Hakim Nasir verse above is considered his best and most well-known. Unlike classic ghazal writers such as Ghalib and Mir who focused on feminine beauty and longing, Hakim Nasir Ghazals have a spiritual element to them.
Jab Se Tune Mujhe Deewana remains testament of two great artists, Abida PArveen and Hakim coming together to create one of the greatest ghazals ever performed.
