Allah Mere Allah â€“ The Divine Power
Mohammed Rafi is known as the legendary singer of the Indian movies. The simplicity of his song, as well as his personality, attracted scores of music directors towards him. They soon became bound by the divine voice of the great singer, Rafi, who later became known as Rafi Saab. Yes, the respect he received from the people not only from India but also from other parts of the world is evident from the growing number of Rafi fans even in this century, after 26 years of his death.[audio:NonFilmi_AllahMereyAllah_MohdRafi.mp3]
Allah Mere Allah is a simple tribute to Allah, the God. The worth of this song lies in its simple melody and rhythmic music that touch the heart of every human soul who believes that there is something in the world that is much above than those we see around us. Through this divine music, Rafi makes us realize that God is the only power that is above everything in the world.
Through the song Allah Mere Allah, the creators of the song wish if God takes care of us from all the evils of the world. The request of the singer is clear: Duniya mein mere abaroo rakhna.
If it is not Mohammed Rafi, who else could make the message of the song so clear like this? We had many great singers, including the famous Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and many more. It must be the uniqueness in the style adopted by Rafi that made his voice recognized by a variety of music directors as well as music enthusiasts. He was gifted with a versatile voice and no one could imitate a style like that of Rafi Saab even if many tried to do so.
If music is thought to be a divine gift, Rafi would be considered as one of the most blessed. However, if one thought that Rafi is all about Hindustani music, that assumption would be interpreted as a blunder. Rafi was well versed with a variety of Indian as well as international music too. He started his career in music with Punjabi songs. Later he became equally good at varieties of music including Pop, Qawali, Bhajans, Parody, etc.
Rafi chose music as his life-driving force. He communicated with the world through his music. With the help of the godly voice, he taught the world that the boundaries lie only in the minds of the human beings. He communicated through his music that there is only one truth in the world – the God. To an extent, Rafi’s contribution to humanity can be considered as the greatest.
Allah Mere Allah will reverberate in the hearts that are craving to arrive at the ultimate truth, the God. It is not only because of Rafi’s voice, but also because of the great idea conferred by the lyrics and the great effect transferred through the music of Allah Mere Allah.
