It is calming, it is soulful, it is melodious. Atif Aslam’s rendition of Hamd, Wohi Khuda Hai for Coke Studio was just released, and fans can’t stop talking about it.
Rohail Hyatt’s take on Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan kalaam seems to have been well received by the audience and Twitter is going gaga over it.
Contrary to the maestro’s version, Atif’s Wohi Khuda Hai is soft and slow. The six-minute video has the singer, clad in a white sherwani, reciting the hamd, which ends with a durud.
And Twitter is ecstatic!

“I’d like to dedicate this performance to my son,” Atif had said in the BTS video. “He will grow up and listen to it. He will be proud that my father recited this hamd. I hope he understands what I said. I hope he finds his own journey and Allah in the process.”
