song was supposed to be on one of Aslam’s albums but he wanted to do it
for Coke Studio. The song talks about Aslam’s journey. He writes about
the idea of searching for someone and turning to God in pain of
separation from his beloved. The spiritual search for God and yearning
for closeness makes the person stronger and see the Sufi idea of 'true'
love in a different way to the point that they don’t need the worldly
love they set out looking for. In the song Atif writes that the beloved
returns but the person doesn’t need them anymore because he has found
God and needs nothing else.
Aslam decided to include a section
from ‘Shaana Uchiyan’ the renowned qawali performed by Nusrat Fateh Ali
Khan. He felt the qawali would help bring out the idea of searching for
God and add a higher spiritual dimension to his music.
A track created upon cyclic rhythm layers, which evolve through shifting accents while the underlying rhythm remains unchanged.
