Amir Khusro, Man Kunto Maula

Man Kunto Maula by Fanna-Fi-Allah Sufi Qawwali. Half an hour of pure bliss, if you may.

You will understand and enjoy more if you know the wording and their meaning. Note: Ali was the Prophet’s(PBUH) son in law)

1.The preliminary wordings   

Shah-e-Mardan Sher-e-Yazdan Quwat-e-Parwardigar  

Lafatah illa Ali La Saif illa Zulfiqar.  

 {language: first line: Farsi,  second line: Arabic}

Translation:

Shah-e-Mardan= King of men

Sher-e-Yazdan = lion of Allah

Quwat-e-Parwardigar = power of lord

Lafatah illa Ali = no victory without Ali

La Saif illa Zulfiqar.= no sword except zulfiqar (Ali’s sward)

==============================================================================

2.(This piece is from the site:http://niyazi-sufi.blogspot.co.nz/2009/01/hazrat-qibla-shah-niyazs-view-on.html)

Zahay izzo jalaale Bu Turaabe fakhre insaane
Ali al-Murtaza mushkil kushaye shere Yazdane

(The honour and valour of Abu Turab is the pride of mankind.
No doubt Ali al-Murtaza (K.W.K), helper in the time of need, is the Lion of God.)

 

[Abu Turab (Arabic: أبو تراب‎‎) or Father of Soil, is a title attributed to Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib, the first Shia Caliph and Imam, and the fourth Sunni Caliph. According to narrations the title was given to Ali by Muhammad(PBUH), when he found Ali sleeping while covered with soil.]

These wordings are sung just before the main Amir Khusro’s poem.

3..The main Amir Khusro song “Mun kunto Maula...”

taken from: [https://sufipoetry.wordpress.com/2009/11/06/mun-kunto-maula-amir-khusro/]

 

Man kunto Maula
Fa Ali-un Maula
Dara dil-e dara dil-e dar-e daani
Hum tum tanana nana
Nana nana ray
Yalali yalali yala
Yala yala ray…

~ By Amir Khusro    {language:First two lines: Arabic}

Translation:

“Whoever accepts me as a master, Ali is his master too.”

(The above is a hadith – a saying of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). Rest of the lines are tarana bols that are generally meaningless and are used for rhythmic chanting by Sufis.)
