Coke Studio - Arif Lohar - Alif Allah - Meesha
Title: "Alif Allah chambay di booti"

Alif allah chambay di booti, tey meray murshid mann vich lai hoo
My master has planted the fragrant seed of love in my heart

Ho nafi uss baat da paani dey kay
Which flourished with modesty, piety and acceptance of his existence

Har ragaay harjai hoo
My God is present in every throbbing pulse

Ho joog joog jeevay mera murshid sohna
My spiritual guide is ever-present

Hatay jiss ay booti lai ho
The one who blew life into me

(chorus # 1)

Pir meraya jugni ji
I have the spirit of my guide

Ae way allah waliyan di jugni ji
The spirit of all the messengers who brought His message to this Earth

Ae way nabbi pak di jugni ji
The spirit of Holy Prophet

Ae way maula ali wali jugni ji
The spirit of Ali and his followers

Ae way meray pir di jugni ji
The spirit of my saint

Ae way saaray sabaz di jugni ji
The spirit of all his words

Dum gutkoon, dum gutkoon, dum gutkoon, dum gootkun... karay Saeein
Everytime I think of you God, my heart flutters

Parhay tay kalma nabi da Parhay saeein pir merya
So I recite the kalma whenever I think of God

(chrous #1 repeat)
Jugni taar khaeein vich thaal
O my creation, share whatever you have

Chad duniya dey janjaal
Remove yourself from worldly concerns

Kuch ni nibna bandiya naal
There is nothing that you can get from other human beings that you can take to the after-life


Rakhi saabat sidh amaal
Just keep you actions and intentions pure

(chorus # 1 repeat)

Jugni dig payee vich roi
So absorbed was the creation that she stumbled into a ditch

Othay ro ro kamli hoi
There she wailed relentlessly

Oddi vaath naye lainda koi
But there was no one who enquired about her


Tey kalmay binna nai mildi toi
Remember, there is no salvation for anyone without remembering your creator

(chorus #1 repeat)

Ho wanga charha lo kuriyon
Put on your bangles, girls

Meray daata dey darbaar dian
Those that you get at your Master's shrines


Ho naa kar teeya khair piyari
Daughter, don't be proud of your youth

Maan daindiya galaryaan
Your mother scoffs and scolds you

Din din talhi juwani jaandi
That with each passing day, your youth slips by

Joon sohna puthia lariyaan
Even gold when put in the furnance moulds itself, there is absolutely no permanence

Aurat marad, shehzaday sohney
Women, men are like so beautiful

O moti, O laa lariyaan
Like pearls, like the gems

Sir da sarfa kar naa jairey
Those who are not self-centered

Peen prem pya lariyan
They are the ones who truly love the humanity

O daatay day darbaan chaa akho
Whenever you visit the darbar of any saint

Pawan khair sawa lariyan
God fulfils all your wishes and showers you with his blessings

(arif plus meesha)

(chorus 2)

O wanga charha lo kuriyon meray daata tey darbar diyan
Put on your bangles, girls ... Those that you get at your Master's shrine

O wangha charha lo kuriyon meray daata tey darbar diyan
Put on your bangles, girls ... Those that you get at your Master's shrines

(chorus 2 repeat)

Dum gutkoon, dum gutkoon, dum gootkoon, gootkoon gootkon

(chorus 1 repeat)

Jugni ji
Jugni ji
Jugni ji...


Koi naa kahay
Koi bhi na sunay
Dil ki baat yeh
Dil mein hee rahay
Yaadein naa rahain
Chaahoon aisa mein toh
Naa yaad ho mujh ko mera maazi

Na hee saamnay manzil raastay
Jo bhee saath thay, lootay waastay
Yaadein na rahain

Aisa bikhra mein bhee iss haal mein
Bojhal raatein meri
Yaadein naa rahain

Kaisi majboori hai

Kitna zaroori hai
Kay jivan ki taptee iss dhop mein ho
Jo saaya, saaya
Ho saaya, saaya

Kyun yeh dil kahay
Tooh phir aamplay
saanson mein rahay
Aakhon mein wasay
Aur na hon judaa


Lyrics (Gurmukhi)
ਅਲਫ ਅੱਲਾ ਚੰਬੇ ਦੀ ਬੂਟੀ
ਮੇਰੇ ਮਨ ਵਿੱਚ ਮੁਰਸ਼ਦ ਲਾਈ.. ਹੂ…

ਨਫੀ ਅਸਬਾਤ ਦਾ ਪਾਣੀ ਮਿਲਿਆ
ਹਰ ਰਗੇ ਹਰ ਜਾਈ.. ਹੂ…

ਅੰਦਰ ਬੂਟੀ ਮੁਸ਼ਕ ਮਚਾਇਆ
ਜਾਂ ਫੁੱਲਾਂ ਤੇ ਆਈ.. ਹੂ…

ਜੀਵੇ ਮੁਰਸ਼ਿਦ ਕਾਮਿਲ ਬਾਹੂ
ਜੀਹ ਨੇ ਬੂਟੀ ਲਾਈ.. ਹੂ…

Lyrics (in Shahmukhi)
الف اللہ چمبے دی بوٹی
ميرے من وچ مرشد لائی ہو

نفی اثبات دا پانی مليا
ہر رگے ہر جائی ہو

اندر بوٹی مشک مچايا
جاں پھلاں تے آئی ہو

جيوے مرشد کامل باھو
جيں اے بوٹی لائی ہو

Sultan Bahu (Punjabi)(ca 1628 - 1691) was a Muslim Sufi and saint, who founded the Sarwari Qadiri Sufi order. Darbar Hazrat sultan Bahoo is located near Garh More city.

Sultan Bahu belonged to Awan tribe and was born in Anga, Soon Valley Sakesar (Vadi-e-Soon Sakesar). Like many other sufi saints of South Asia, Sultan Bahu was also a prolific writer, with more than forty books on Sufism attributed to him. Most of His books are in Persian language. However, as the majority of his books deal with specialised subjects related to Islam and Islamic mysticism, it is his Punjabi poetry that has generated popular appeal and made him a household name in the region. His poetic verses are sung in many genres of sufi music, including qawaalis and kaafis. Tradition has established a particular style of singing his couplets, which is not used in any other genre of sufi music.

The Mausoleum of Sultan Bahu is located in Garh Maharaja, Punjab, Pakistan. It is a popular and frequently-visited sufi shrine, and the annual festival is celebrated with the usual fervour, which is now a distinguishing feature of what is being called a 'shrine culture' of the South Asia. Annual festival is held during the holy month of Muharram. Every year on the 9th of Muharram (Islamic calendar month) a ghusal is also taken place under the supervision of Muhammad Najeeb Sultan (Sajjada Nasheen (Chair-holder) of Sultan Bahoo shrine), in which all decedents of Sultan Bahoo wash His shrine with tones of pure rose water.

Hazrat Sultan Bahu is from the progeny of Hazrat Ali and is a direct descended from Hazrat Ali. Sultan Bahu belonged to the Qadiri sufi order, and later initiated his own offshoot, Sarwari Qadiri. Sultan Bahu's education began at the feet of his mother, Mai Rasti, who was herself a saintly woman, and has her own Mausoleum in Shorkot, Punjab, Pakistan. She told him to seek spiritual guidance from a wali (friend of GOD). After some time, he moved to Delhi for further 'polishing' under the guidance of Sheikh Abdul Rehman al Qadari. Soon Sheikh Abdul Rehman al Qadari felt that he can not add anything to Sultan Bahoo's knowledge as Sultan Bahoo already knew more than Sheikh Abdul Rehman al Qadari. This did not take long, after which Sultan Bahu returned to his own, familiar surroundings.
