AMEER KHUSRO : A GREAT SUFI PHILOSOPHER - President of India : Recent Events


ADDRESS AT THE 702nd Urs CELEBRATION OF THE SUFI POET HAZRAT AMEER KHUSRO AT Urs MAHAL, HAZRAT NIZAMUDDIN AULIA, NEW DELHI, 10 NOV. 2006, 10-11-2006 : NEW DELHI

AMEER KHUSRO : A GREAT SUFI PHILOSOPHER - President of India : Recent Events

I am delighted to participate in the inauguration of 702nd Urs Celebration of the great Sufi Poet Hazrat Ameer Khusro at Urs Mahal, Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia, New Delhi. My greetings to the organizers, priests, devotees of dargah, literary personalities and distinguished guests. I have visited, Urs Mahal, Hazrat Nizamuddin, 3 years back. I am extremely happy to visit again to attend the Urs festival of Sufi Poet Hazrat Ameer Khusro, who was known to be the most ardent disciple of Hazrat Khwaja Nizamuddin Aulia. When I am in the midst of devotees of these two great souls, I am reminded of the statement of the famous teacher of Ameer Khusro, Hazrat Khwaja Nizamuddin Aulia, who said, “If a man places thorns in your way, and you do the same, it will be thorns everywhere”. This statement captivated my mind and took me to various spiritual thoughts of our nation. Another important thought of Amir Khusro which inspired me is his concern for the poor farmers.

GOD's CREATION

Rumi says, “Angel is free because of his knowledge, The beast because of his ignorance, Between the two remains the son of man to struggle” Good poetry and music indeed elevates human beings to a high level of life. continue reading

    Examples of deep Indian nature of our culture is can be seen in every aspect of our lives, including our marriage traditions, superstitious myths, and even Qawali music that we consider Islamic. According to Hindu mythology classical music has a divine origin. Both the Vedic and the Gandharva systems of music were nurtured in the hermitage of Rishis, and songs of devotion and prayers are an integral to prayer and traditions. Amir Khusroo, father of Qawali (Kawali) style of music, showed his remarkable genius 900 years ago by combining the concept and themes of the religious Indian ragas with devote songs to saints of Islam. The chorus of claps signifies how angles in Islam are said to clap when divine souls are in their presence. Qawali music evolved over time and is not only enjoyed by Muslims and Hindus alike, but thanks to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, it has a significant following around the globe.

  • Morality touched by emotion
    By Firoz Bakht Ahmed
    In a myriad ways Hindus and Muslims have a lot in common with each other.
    One religion is as true as another, Robert Burton said in his book The Anatomy of Melancholy. On the same lines Bernard Shaw said, “There is only one religion, though there are a hundred versions of it. It should be emphasised that throughout history, there has never been a separation of Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs on the basis of religion.”
