Coke Studio’s Season 12 is started with the Hamd recited by Atif Aslam. This Hamd has a small part of the Durood as well in the end.
The concept of the lyrics of the Hamd “Wohi Khuda Hai” is basically trying to praise Allah who is the creator, as the Allah has countless powers which even any human being cannot even explain perfectly. Whatsoever this Hamd revolves around the greatness of the creator Allah.
The original one is recited by the Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, that one is more musical and in a fast mood. But with all that music the lyrics are so strong that all the music and fastness fade away with the strongness of the lyrics.
Atif Aslam is wearing all white attire i.e. White Sherwani and white Khusa. White color represents purity and perfection. For this kind of Kalam, this color and attire selection is perfect.
If we talk about the mood of the Hamd is really slow, soothing and calm. Even the music is really slow and light in the background which helps to focus on the lyrics of the Hamd.
The last part, when the Hamd ends is where Atif recites the Durood Shareef. I think this is the best part of the whole Kalam. Because there is no music and Atif Aslam has given his best at this part.
This level of pureness can only be given by those people who have some kind of spirituality in their own personality. Atif Aslam is loved by millions of people. He is an international artist and still, his personality is really deep and down to earth. Atif is the best choice to recite this Hamd.
