    So much has already been written about Rafi sahab’s greatness, what new can one write about his greatness as a singer and a human being. He was a kindhearted soul who was always ready to help those who went to him for help.
    Without him music has become ‘yateem’. I consider myself so fortunate to have met him in my house when I was a kid. He had come to meet my father who was a good friend of his. My father was a popular film writer and Rafi sahab sang in many of the films written by him [my dad]. In fact Rafi sahab had also sung a few songs written by my father in the 1950s.
    A week after Rafi’ sahab’s demise in 1980 July 31st Thursday ,my father died on 7th August Thursday. Both of them were 55 years old at the time of their passing away.
    Rafi sahab is immortal and will continue to live on through his songs and greatness as a person. He will live in our hearts forever. Rafi sahab was a ‘farishta’ who will continue to bless us mortals.

  9. Sainath Rao says:

    Hello Rashid bhai, great to know you are grandson of Rafi saab. Music to me is synonymous with Rafi songs, my lifetime experiences with people and personal is puctuated with his songs. I can transport myself to any particular stage as to when in occured by listening to a particular song. Feelings came naturally with meaning and I have not come across this experience listening to any other artiste to date. Each singer is good and entertain us well, but Rafi saab melted us with his penchant. Words do not provide enough revelations to what Rafi saab means to us all, May his name last for ever, sainath

  10. sunil kumar says:

    Best wishes to Rajan saheb for writing in hubpages.com. I am sure you will get all the encouragement and assistance from all the rafi fans.

  11. Ashish kumar says:

    agar mujhe ye jiwan mila hai to main apni jiwan ko md.rafi saheb ji ke charno me arpit karta hun aur kamna karta hun ki he sangit ke khuda agar mujhe kuch dena chahte hai to apni gulshan ki bagiya se mujhe ek phool de dijiye jiske mahak se mera sara jiwan mahak uthe

  12. sagar says:

    Isse jyada aur kya kushi hai ke aap yaha hamare beeh aye. Hum Rafi sahab ko yaad nahi karte, unhe dil me lekar jo baithe hai. Roj unki puje karte hai yehi soch kar ke baghwan dharti par to aye par ham mil na sake.

  13. Rajan says:

    Dear Rashid ji,
    I am writing an article on rafi saab, who became an icon in his lifetime. This article wil be published on the website http://www.hubpages.com.
    This website has most of its writers and readers from the western countries. I wish to to let them know about the greatest indian playback singing legend. I am still working on it and want to make it a sort of a tribute to the legendary singer. I need some exceptional songs which highlight the variety of songs he has sung, some extremely sweet family memories of him, other less known facts and some pictures of rafi saab. If I could get some links to videos to include in my article, I would be much obliged.
    I am also sending an email to the people here at mohdrafi.com to request them to allow me to add links to some of their articles and to allow me to use some rare pictures of rafi saab. Attribution to this site and to others who provide glimpses of the great man will be given in the article I am writing.
    I appeal to everyone who has any form of rafi saab’s memory to send me the related video, article, pics etc. The contribution will be acknowledged in the article.
    Thanks.

  15. I ihink myself very lucky to meet Mr Mohd , Rafi in nagpur airport along with Mr Gulzar, as they were on thier way to calcutta for programme.
    We just have a glimpse of That Great Singer. I still remember his siling face .
    I think no singer can mathch his versatality.
    He is a king of Playback back singing.

  17. Dhananjay Maharaj says:

    Dear Mr. Rashid Rafi,

    How you are lucky that you are Rafisaab’s grandson !!! Mohd. Rafijee was a great human being and greatest singer. I was 14 when he passed away. I feel very sorry because I haven’t seen this GOD of VOICE.
    I think God in the Heavens gave Rafisaab a number of things but forgot to give a long life. He has done a very cruel thing by taking away Rafijee from us so early.
    Is it possible for God to make Mohd. Rafi again ? I think no, because it happened only once on Dec. 24, 2011.

  18. Hallo, please supply shahid rafi email adress if possible,will be highly appreciated.All in connection with music.

  19. Sujata Dev says:

    Dear Mr. Raashid,

    Extremely glad to have tracked you. I am doing research on Indian Playback singing and obviously your grandfather, the great Rafi Sahab has played a poignant role in establishing this great industry in Bollywood. I would look forward to interacting with you and find some genuine information about Rafi Sahab. Please give me your email id so that I can interact with you. My e-mail id is sujata@rafi-fan.info.
    Regards,
    Sujata

I browse the net daily and atleast one click i go to see Rafi Saahebs websites. My father was very fortunate to be with Rafi saaheb when once he visited Madras. I am emotional now.

    Salam to all fans of Mohammad Rafi Sahab

    Meri subah Rafi sahab ki makhmali aawaz se shuru hoti hai aur main neend ke aaghosh mein unki jadui aawaz ke sahre hi ja pata hoon.Meri zindagi unke bina sooni hoti.Main sirf 20 saal ka hoon.Bhale hi Rafi Sahab mere paida hone ke barson pahle intaqal farma gaye the mere dil mein unki aawaz ne unhe humesha zinda rakha hua hai.Unki aawaz ka jaadu bhi ajeeb hai,mujhe wo Khuda ke baad sabse azeez hain.Unki aawaz dil-o-dimagh mein khoobsurat sirhan paida kar deti hai.Tarannum ke is Betaj badshah ko is Gharib-o-bekas ghulam ka salaam pahunche.

  26. RANA QAISAR MAHMOOD says:

    My loving RAFI SAHAB I lovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvve you too much to tell.No voice is beautiful than your voice and no face is beautiful than your face for me.Although you left this world before my birth yet i love you more than any body else and your name and songs are always in my heart and soul.I salute the mother who gave this world a son like you.I remember you every day and miss you every moment.May your soul rest in peace.No singer will be able to sing like you even after the RIAZ of centuries.

  27. Shahid Syed says:

    About this movement for asking the Indian Government for an award for Rafi saahab… please refrain from begging from these moronic politicians.
    The greatness of Rafi saahab does not need a recognition from the Indian Politicians.
    Rafi Saahab was a true prophet of the Indian Musical World. He was a great human being and should not be belittled by such demands.
    let this award go the lesser Kishore Lata’s and their likes. and opportunists like R D Burman, who played dirty teaming with Kishore kumar and trying his best to deny us more songs from the great Rafi saahab.
    But even he had to concede one or two songs to Rafi saahab as he realized he couldn’t find another singer of Rafi saahab’s calibur.
    Kishore insensitively even increased his rates overnight after news of Rafi saahab’s death.

  28. Hi Khalid! I’m from Mauritius. I’ve been listening to your grandfather’s songs since childhood and even today no other music gives me more pleasure than Rafi saab’s. Every single day I sing his songs.
    I want to use some of your dad’s songs in my movie projects. Who must I approach to obtain the rights to use his songs in my movies?

    I’mliving in South Africa at the moment.

    Dearest Raashid beta,when your grandfather was in the Netherlands for shows in 1973 ,then he asked me to write a text in Dutch language on the tune of “Baharo Phoel Barsawo”.

    Dear Rashid,
    I have loved listening to rafi sahab’s songs since i was a child, i’m 59 now,and till today there has not been a singer who has rafi’s sweetness at even at pitch. I regret not having met my singing idol though i lived in Bandra during rafi’s peak.and my idol’s house was next door literally. i stayed at Bhabha Hospital as my dad was a doctor

  37. Mahender says:

Mohammed Rai est une grande personnalité qui bien laissé ses emprintes sur la chanson indoux ..grace à lui on a aimé les films de GUIDE kabi kabi …la liste est longue ..malgré toutesles difficultés de comprehension des poèmes chantés en langue indoux nous aimons son chant qui orne la musique d’une voix douce et qui enchante les mots prononcés avec avec dévotion inouie

    rafi saab ki sachi bahut yaad aati hai jinki aawaz mein itni mithas hai who dil ke kitne bade insan hoge aur charitr ke kitne saaf honge

    yah khuda rafi saab jha bhi un tak mera pegam phoochana dena ki aaj bhi unka bhakt varun unka bahut miss karta hain

    I cannot make any comment on rafisaab’s voice as i m too small for it. alredy all maestros in music world has made lot of comments about it and no doubt in my mind that there is no one like rafisaab. espesially apart from a singer he was a nice person which is a very rare thing in film industry. hats of to such wonderful personality.

    Hello everyone,
    I am a great fan of RAFI SAHAB simply because of two reasons. Firstly,he was a great singer and Secondly he was a great human being.
    He helped everyone whosoever came to him asking for help whether monetary or of any other kind. He was not at all money minded and had a great passion for singing.
