Khwaaja Mere Khwaaja

I enjoy listening to sufi songs. This one of the recent ones that I like from Jodhaa Akbar. Music and spirituality are so intertwined, it's hard to separate one from the other. This one just proves so.


khwaajaa ji khwaajaa
khwaajaa ji (3)
ya gharib nawaaz (3)
ya moinuddin (3)
ya khwaajaa ji (5)

(khwaajaa mere khwaajaa dil mein samaa jaa
shaaho ka shaah tu ali kaa dulaaraa) (2)
khwaajaa mere khwaajaa dil mein samaa jaa (2)
beqaso ki taqdeer toone hai sanwaari
toone hai sanwaari
beqaso ki taqdeer toone hai sanwaari
hai sanwaari (3)
khwaajaa mere khwaajaa

tere darbaar mein khwaajaa door to hai dekhaa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
tere darbaar mein khwaajaa sar jhukaate hai auliyaa
tu hai hindalwali khwaajaa rutbaa hai pyaaraa
chaahne se tujhko khwaajaa ji mustafaa ko paayaa
khwaajaa mere khwaajaa, khwaajaa, khwaajaa
dil mein samaa ja, samaa ja samaa ja
shaaho ka shaah tu ali ka dulaara

hmm mere peer kaa sadkaa (2)
hai mere peer kaa sadkaa teraa daaman hai thaamaa
khwaajaa ji
tali har balaa hamaari chhaaya hai khumaar teraa
jitna bhi rashk kare beshak to kam hai aye mere khwaajaa
tere kadmon ko mere rehnumaa nahin chhodnaa ganwaaraa
khwaajaa mere khwaajaa, khwaajaa, khwaajaa
dil mein samaa ja, samaa ja, samaa ja
shaaho ka shaah tu ali ka dulaara

khwaajaa mere khwaajaa, khwaajaa, khwaajaa
dil mein samaa ja, samaa ja samaa ja
shaaho ka shaah tu ali ka dulaara

khwaajaa mere khwaajaa (2) dil mein samaa jaa
khwaajaa mere khwaajaa (2)
dil mein samaa jaa (2)
beqaso ki taqdeer
toone hai sanwaari (2) sanwaari, sanwaari

beqaso ki taqdeer
toone hai sanwaari (2) sanwaari, sanwaari

khwaajaa mere khwaajaa (3)
shaaho ka shaah tu ali ka dulaara
khwaajaa ji... (8)

Hi, I'm so happy to see this song here. It's one of my recent favorites. So soothing and calming..
I do have a question, though. I thought it was "Tere Darbaar mein Khwaajaa, NOOR to hai dekhaa" and you've written "DOOR". Just wanted to confirm.
You're doing a great job!

rajk, glad to know that. Thank you for your comment and correction. :) I listened to the song again but couldn't figure out so I'll take your word for it. :) thanks for your help.

I like this song very much. Naturally, because it is sung by none other than ARR. And it reminds me of another Sufi by him. 'Piya Haji Ali'.

Lyrics please.....

And ya, to theBollywoodFan, for this song...Translations please...
