Ye Jo Halka Halka Suroor Hai - The Controversial Qawwali - Halka Halka 
I love the poetry of this piece which draws upon the classic metaphors common to ghazal & qawwali alike. It indulges so completely in describing the eternal play of lover & Beloved, the intoxication of Ishq ( devine love ) a wonderfully sentimental perspective on the human quest to know Allah الله سبحان و تعالى
