    meh, I expected a Fateh Ali Khan mammoth performance but got a bunch of mediocre pop music. Turns out we've all been looking at the wrong family members: http://www.last.fm/music/Rizwan-Muazzam+Qawwali

    uff Masha-Allah he is having the best voice!! although most of the people dnt like the song "ajj din chadheya" but i luv this song it's too romsntic... and really it do happens with us (humans) that when we do not get wat we want we complain Allah abt it.... it's our nature and that's wat the song is containg............ <3
