Email from Raashid Rafi.

Mr. Raashid Rafi happens to be Rafi Sahab’s grand son. We received an email from him, which has been posted for all fans to read.

Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Raashid Rafi and I live in London. I am the grandson of Mohammad Rafi. My father, Khalid, is his son. I was informed of your web-site by a friend in the US. Yesterday I browsed through your site and was very impressed.

If you ever need any more information on my grandfather I will be more than happy to provide you with it, within reason ofcourse.

Take Care

    Dear Rashid Rafi,

    Pl. send us some more details and pics. about your father and grand father. Last month a Musical session was held on 21.03.2008 in the honour of “MR. SOHAIL BUTT ” A Die hard fan from Kuwait” in respect of “RAFI SAHIB’S OLD HOME TOWN – LAHORE CHAPTER” organized by Saeed Ahmed Khan, Regional Director, National University of Modern Language, Lahore where younger brother of Rafi Sahib Mr. M. Saddiq sungs many songs of his elder brother in order to spread our love across the global (to bring all lovers in a single plate form). In this connection all credit goes to some leading personalities like Binu Nair ji, A S Murthy ji, Sovouk Chittergi, Kulkurani ji, M. Hussain, Naresh ji and many others. I would request to Rashid Sahib to send us his e-mail address to forward him some rare pics. of above events.
    With best wishes. Ghulam Mujtaba / Lahore / Pakistan.

    Dear Rashid Rafi Saeb assalam o alaikum,
    I am emotionally touched to make contact with you through this great site of the great Rafi Saheb whose songs are the treasure of my life.I belong to a small town Cuttack but I have been listening to Rafi sahab’s songs since I was a kid, but I never ever got the opportunity to meet my beloved singer.Any way he will continue to remain in my heart forever.” to kahin bhi rahe to meri nigahon me hai”.

  6. Vish says:

    Hello Rashid

    You must be incredibly proud of your grandpa. You have no clue how I feel about Rafi saab. He is the closest to God as far as I am concerned.

    I have been searching for the song titled ‘Joode mein gajra mat baandho’ from the movie Dhoop-Chhaon. If you can direct me to a location where I could possibly download it from, that would be awesome.

    Singers have come and gone but Rafi saab was the only one who still touches my heart.

    Long live Rafi saab’s legacy.

    Thanks

    Hi! I personaly came over Mohammed Rafi in a great movie called “Ghost World”. I guess it is a low budget movie, but a real great one starring no one greater than Steve Buscemi and a young and undiscovered Scarlett Johanson. Its a movie for real music lovers. Here you get represent earliy 1920 jazz and blues like the real great”Jaan Pehechaan Ho” by Mohammed Rafi. A real clasic.

  14. hi friends,

  17. akhtar lokhandwala says:

    rashid saheb,

    i am a great lover of rafi saab’s song since my childhood, i remember i had just joined engineering college in Bhopal that i got the news of rafis saab’s death, i was totally shaken,distressed,disappointed and shocked and could not eat for many days therafter but then I consoled myself and realised that, Allah loved him much much more than us and had re-called rafi saab, for he was bestowed with a divine voice,which comes once in a million years,a voice which moved and stills moves billions of souls.

    Do send me rafi saabs any rare photo you may be having and if possible do
    reply to my email, an email from yourself will link me to rafi saab in a way and will be a precious diamond for me.

    Regards,

    Akhtar-Dubai

    Post 70 : welcome m i l i n d….

    rafi saab is next to g o d for m e.. ..

    Therefore my life is sublime, passionate and full of hope.
    rafi saab s songs are great : and his lifes pages blot-less…
    people who compare rafi saab with singers in this site and in
    the kishore site : should ponder over this….facts of life….
    but to digest this , they will need an open mind and lots of
    human qualities in them…

  40. Virander Gur says:

    Dear Mr. Raashid,

    You are very lucky person being grandson of a legend. I live in Ulhasnagar, and am the member of Rafi fan club which is organized by one Doctor Prabhu Ahuja. He is so fond of Rafi’s voice that one flat he has purchased where rehearsal takes place mainly of Rafi’s songs. Singers from nearby area have become the members of this club. The club organize programme twice in a year on Rafi saabs birthday and on his death anniversary. I feel it is impossible to sing like Rafi but if you understand him and his voice that is more than enough. Rafi ki tarah koi gaa nahin sakta magar unko aur unki awaaz ko samjhana hi bahut hai.

  41. Sandeep Sehgal says:

    i want to know more about Mr. Rafi’s life… sandeep_sehgal1234@rediffmail.com

  42. Sandeep Sehgal says:

    Even after his death Rafi Sahib can change my mood any time.. He is like God to me… His voice is God’s Voice for me. His voice touches me right in the heart… I am not only a fan or Mr. Rafi… I worship rafi… he had some Godly magic in his voice.. he certainly had some link with God… till the time this world remains… no one can even touch Rafi Sahib’s voice… Sometimes i feel that no one loves Mr. Rafi more than me.. but when I saw web sites like this i realise the greatness of Mr. Rafi… I wish i could ever meet or see Mr. Rafi in person.. but that’s not possible now… He is more than just a singer for me. I LOVE RAFI….!!! I don’t have words to prove how much i love rafi…!!! I pray to God when I die and go back to God… Bhagwaan mujhe Rafi se jaroor milwana….. unki aawaaj mai mujhe kahi na kahi apne dil kee awaaj lagti hai…May God Bless his soul.. Luv u Rafi..

  43. hi mr rasheed sallam

    Just joined the MOHD.RAFI LOGIN CLUB WITH MY PASSWORD FOR FIRST TIME. HENCEFORTH, WILL BE IN REGULAR TOUCH THROUGH THESE COLUMNS. WISH THE FAMILY OF MOHD RAFI SAHEB ALL THE VERY BEST IN THEIR LIVES. THEY ARE TRULY BLESSED FOR CONTINUING HIS GENES AND SOMEDAY, ANOTHER MOHD RAFI WILL BE BORNE IN THEIR FAMILY. WE ALL AWAIT THE DAY, ANOTHER TRUE MOHD. RAFI IS BORN, FOR THE WORLD IS STARVED OF LISTENING TO NEWER SONGS OF MOHD. RAFI. AS LONG AS WE LIVE, WE WOULD HAVE LIKE MOHD. RAFI TO GIVE US MANY MANY MORE SONGS, SO THAT ATLEAST BY LISTENING AND SINGING THEM IN OUR OWN WAY, WE COULD HAVE ACHIEVED THE MENTAL SATISFACTION THAT HE HAD GIVEN TO ALL OF US BY HIS SONGS UPTO 1980. THOSE INTERESTED TO BE IN TOUCH WITH ME CAN CONTACT ME AT asmurty2@rediffmail.com
    THANKS

    For those of you, who are fans of rafi saab’s naat’s, you could listen to one of his naat’s recited by myself here:

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=Z6iBEfYZkQg

    What do you think?

  49. david singh says:

    I was recently told that there was an article on the gravesite of Mohd. Rafi. The news stated that the gravesite was making way for a new building? This cannot be true! Are there plans to move his grave? Anyone know of this?

  50. Hafiz says:

    Kalsum,you requested the mullad shareef ‘ya nabi salaam aleika…..’ by rafi saab,if u e mail me on mhafiz@hotmail.co.uk i will sort it out for you.I have many naaths by rafi saaab.
