Punjabi Sufi singer Dr. Satinder Sartaaj is one artist who keeps treating his fans with meaningful messages through his songs. Once again, the singer is ready with another set of seven songs into an album titled ‘Hamza’. His songs this time again are certainly going to connect the listeners with the Almighty and that is what the purpose is. The album was released by Firdaus Production on Tuesday in the city in the presence of Sartaaj himself and the media fraternity.
Every song of the album consists of a social or spiritual message and has been penned by Sartaaj himself. He said, “This is the definition of Sufi – pure, selfless and meaningful. The world has the best luxuries of its times but at the same time there are lot of sufferings.
Ultimately, we all have to depend on the Absolute and this is what I keep in mind while writing my songs. The words connect to every individual’s life as they have come from their inspiration only. I am just like a medium.”
The first song ‘Bahuta Sochi Na’ inspires one not to run after material things more than one’s need. Also the poet is telling not to hurt others’ sentiments in this material race. The second number ‘Din Veervaar De’ explains a soul’s desire of spending time with the super soul and also work according to His liking. ‘Pind Mud Chaliye’ is the third in the list which gives a social message of connecting back to the nature by taking care of the greenery and the other lives
Song number four is titled ‘Ambron Paar’ talks about the presence of the Almighty in every single particle, every single drop and even in every single grain of sand. Fifth song ‘Aapne Gunaah’ talks about the bad deeds which a human does unintentionally. It teaches not to do anything bad even in ignorance and inspires one to proceed to good karma. ‘Jazbe’ is the sixth song in the lineup which remembers the roohaniyat of Sufis like Sheikh Farid, Khusro and Mansoor and talks about learning from their spiritual teachings.
Album’s last song ‘Hamza’ portrays human being as a character with Sufi feeling. He is like a traveler in this destructible world who continues to travel even in unfriendly circumstances.
The song teaches to be grounded and pray to the Almighty who seems to be far but actually is very close to our hearts and soul.
