Ganj-e-Shakar Ke Laal Nizamuddin

From amongst the treasures left behind by Amir Khusrau, this is one kalam that is especially dear to my heart.

The following two renditions were added today to this older post:
1. By the full 11.09 min version Nizami brothers

2. A clip of the more classical rendition by Farid Ayaz from Sufi Eternal Vol 2.

this (full) version may be downloaded here:
The following is a shorter recital from the mehfil in Ottawa which was hosted by our friends Dr. Arshad Saeed, Javed Somra & Mustafa Hamid.

Ganj-e-Shakar Key Laal Nijamuddin

If any of you would like to share anything to do with Hazrat Moinuddin Chishti, Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia, Hazrat Fariduddin Chishti or the Chishti order of sufis I'd be very interested to hear more.

Sazad Barshan-e-to Alam Panahi
Nizamuddin Mehboob e Illahi

Ganj-e-Shakar Laal Nijamuddin
Chisht Nagar Mein Bhaag Rachayo

Khwaja Moinuddin, Khwaja Qutabuddin
Prem Ke Rung Ki Rain Chardhaiyo

Dhan Dhan Bhaag, Unkey Mori Sajni
Jin Aiyso Sundar Preetam Payo

Pir Nijamuddin, Chakar Khilardi
Bayyan Pakard Mora Ghungta Utthayo

Sees Mukhat Haatam Pichkari
Morey Aangan Hori khaelan Aayo

Khaelo re Chishti o Holi Khaelo
Khwaja Nijam ke Bhaes Mein Aayo

Is it possible that a translation of this qawwali be presented here?

I am desperate. It will be most appreciated.

Thank you
