Teri Ummeed Tera Intezar Jabse Hai
Lyrics & Chords
When I first heard this Faiz Ahmed Faiz ghazal some 7-8 years ago in Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s voice, the khayal as in his Mukhda inspired me to transform it into light and modern form of ghazal gayeki. I came up with a different tune for the first line of each antara and maintained the same khayal as in Mukhda for the second line. So this is part original khayal and part my own inspiration.
Faiz Sahab (1911-1984) is like the King of modern ghazals. Highly intellectual and a Marxist. Many Pakistani singers have sung his ghazals including Noor Jahan, Mehdi Hassan, Fareeda Khanum, Iqbal Bano, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and numerous others. Hope friends who enjoy Urdu poetry will like this presentation on my home recorded track that is in C#.
Listen Nusrat Fateh Ali in Mehfils:
Teri Ummeed Tera Intezar Jab Se Hai
Na Shab Ko Din Se Shikayat Na Din Ko Shab Se Hai
Kisi Ka Dard Ho Karte Hain Tere Naam Raqam (Tere Naam raqam=Tujhse associate karna)
Gilla Hai Jo Bhi Kisi Se Tere Sabab Se Hai
Hua Hai Jabse Dil-e-Nasaboor Beqaboo (Dil-e-Nasaboor=Besabra Dil)
Kalam Tujhse Nazar Ko Bade Adab Se Hai
Agar Sharrar Hai Tu Bhadke Jo Phool Hai Tu Khile (Not covered here, was already over 5 min)
Tarha Tarha Ki Talab Tere Rang-e-Lab Se Hai
Kahan Gaye Shab-e-Furqat Ke Jaagne Walay
Sitara-e-Sehri Hamkalam Kab Se Hai (Sitara-e-Sehri = Subha Ka Sitara)*
