Deep down inside i’m one of the biggest fans of Mehdi Hassan.

I was listening to this ghazal (Pyaar Bharay Do Sharmeelay Nain) of Ustad Mehdi Hasan about 10 minutes ago, i listened to it after quite a while & i love it so much that i thought to share it, then another ghazal of him got my eye (Zindagi mai to sabhi pyaar kia kartay hain) and i found that this one is also melodious so lets share it too on social networking sites so that my fellow friends could also listen to it.
When i was about to share these two songs, another song of Ustaad Mehdi Hassan tickled the strings of my heart & then another song & then another & then another & all these songs got into my playlist, now i was wondering which one to share & which i can spare…

I had like 7-8 of Ustad Mehdi Hassan’s songs lined up in my playlist & i was confused which one to share because each one of it was so beautiful & melodious that i was unable to leave any one of those unshared, so i thought to write a post about Ustad Mehdi Hassan (also known as Khan Sahib).

Ustad Mehdi Hassan is a Pakistani ghazal singer and a former playback singer for Lollywood. He is known as the ‘King of Ghazal’ (Shehenshaah-e-ghazal : شہنشاہِ غزل). He has ruled the Pakistan film industry for so long. He was hounoured with countless awards all across the globe, some of them are:

Nigar Film Awards
Tamgha-e-Imtiaz, Pride of Performance & Hilal-e-Imtiaz by the Government of Pakistan
The Saigal Award in Jalandhar, India, in 1979
Gorkha Dakshina Bahu by Government of Nepal.

His much more successes came after the hardships he faced in order to get at this place. The accolades he received and the love & respect he gathered from all over the world cannot be squeezed into one post. I’ll now quickly come to the main reason which inspired this post, i.e Ustad Mehdi Hassan Khan Sahib’s legendary music. From those eight ghazals which i placed into my playlist, i’m sharing these 4 ghazals. These are my favourites among the ghazals sung by him.

Listen & Enjoy.
Zindagi Mai to Sabhi Pyaar Kia Kartay Hain

Ranjish hi Sahi Dil hi Dukhanay k Leay Aaa.

Muhabbat Karnay Walay Kam na Hongay

Ku Baku Phail Gai
