"Yaa Ali Khub Majalaas" - Mac Virjee With Solo Harmonium Accompaniment

Video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1sHklzMrJo

Yaa Ali Khub Majalaas
O Ali, this glorious assembly

Mac Virjee presents a beautiful and serene rendition of "Yaa Ali Khub Majalaas" with the harmonium as a solo accompanying instrument. The harmonium is a wind instrument that actually originated in the West and it was only in the mid 20th century that harmoniums, in the smaller sizes we know today, started becoming widely available in the Indian subcontinent. Its strengths include the sustained note, strong support of the notes to the vocalist and crispness of taan (rapid improvised melodic vocal technique used in raga singing).

"Yaa Ali Khub Majalaas" munajat (prayer, supplication) started getting recited on the succession of Imam Sultan Mohamed Shah as our 48th Imam in 1885. The 136 year tradition has continued to date and the munajat is now recited on Imamat Day every year in Jamatkhanas to mark the anniversary of Mawlana Shah Karim al Hussaini's ascension to the position of our Imam.

"Yaa Ali Khub Majalaas" is a prayer, expression of gratitude, seeking of divine help as well as a message of greetings (mubarakis) and expression of love for our Imam-e-Zaman. For this reason, it evokes very deep feelings amongst the murids when recited as it touches on both the spiritual as well as our temporal world.

"Darshan Diyo Moraa Naath" - Nargis Balolia (Imamat Day 2021 Special)

Video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J70renv9cgw

JollyGul.com presents Nargis Balolia's beautiful rendition of Sayyida Imam Begum's very popular ginan "Darshan Diyo Moraa Naath". We are releasing this video as part of Imamat Day 2021 Celebrations on our platform.

Sayyida Imam Begum was the last in the line of the major composers of the ginans, and the only known female figure in this class. She composed a small number of ginans of great beauty, especially notable for their imploring tenderness and meditative intimacy. She was also an accomplished player of the fiddle (sarangi) and sang her hymns to the accompaniment of this instrument.

"Darshan Diyo Moraa Naath" ginan is from the recently released Volume 6 of Nargis Balolia's album which consists of a total of 5 wonderfully recited ginans.

Medley of 9 Garbis - A Special Tribute to Pir Shams by Amin Mawani

Video:

Medley of 9 Garbis
A Special Tribute To Pir Shams By Amin Mawani

Amin Mawani pays special tribute to Pir Shams Sabzwari in a "Medley of 9 Garbis" in this wonderful video presentation.

Pir Shams Sabzwari lived in the 13th/14th century and occupies a prominent position amongst the famous Ismaili Da'is. He was sent by our twenty-ninth Imam, Kassim Shah, to preach the Ismaili Nizari faith in South Asia.

Pir Shams conducted his missionary activities all over the North-western and Western parts of South Asia and revived the idea of the necessity of a living guide in the minds of his non-Muslim audiences, bringing thousands of them to the fold of Ismailism. Pir Shams composed numerous ginans and granths as well as 28 garbis that were used very effectively for proselytizing (conversion) purpose at that time. The garbis had spiritual verses that were composed to the dance form popular in Gujarat, India amongst the local population. These garbis are very popular to date and are recited as ginans in Jamatkhanas. Ismailis do not proselytize or dance to ginans in the present time.

Production of this presentation was done in Aurora in Ontario, Canada and in Ahmedabad, India. Amin recited the garbis, Samir Raval and Mana Raval (Samir-Mana), India's first husband-wife music director duo were in charge of music production. They are a very well-known name in the Gujarati film and TV industry. The lyrics and original composition is attributed to Pir Shams.

"Karsanaji Bhanere, Arjun Sambharo" - Ginan By Amin Mawani

Video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2O5fkEeys0

"Karsanaji Bhanere, Arjun Sambharo"
Krishna recites, O Arjun listen to the discourse

Amin Mawani presents Pir Sadardin's "Karsanaji Bhanere, Arjun Sambharo", a very rarely recited beautiful ginan in Raag Brindavani Sarang. Shanoor Amlani and Shelina Mawani-Chatur enrichen the presentation with their wonderful choral support.

Raag Brindavani Sarang is a popular afternoon melody in the North Indian classical music tradition. This raga is known to express the devotion of the singer, with the creation of a romantic, and a spiritual mood.

Pir Sadardin's "Karsanaji" ginan is a discourse between Krishna (Karsanaji) and his disciple Arjun. The theme is the liberation of the soul from the cycle of repeated births, the relationship of the individual soul to the Supreme Soul and the eventual divine merging of the two.

Pir Sadardin says the True Guide who is wise and steeped in knowledge demystifies and makes it all clear for us. Pir Sadardin implores us to channel our devotion to this Guide who will help us attain the eternal station.

"Unchaare Kott Bahu Vechanaa" - Nargis Balolia

Video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgbsWGxeIA0

Unchaare Kott Bahu Vechanaa
A High and Lofty Fortress

JollyGul.com presents Nargis Balolia's wonderful rendition of Pir Hasan Kabiruddin's well-known ginan "Unchaare Kott Bahu Vechanaa".

The ginan is about the soul's yearning for Noorani Didar (Beatific Vision). Pir Hasan Kabiruddin uses the easily understood concept of human love and pains of separation to convey the more abstract idea of higher Divine Love. The Pir allegorizes (uses as symbols) a fish in the ocean seeking to be saved as an example of difficulties of breaking past worldly attachments for the soul to find its ultimate fulfillment. In Eastern philosophy, the sea is the symbol of the cycle of life (bhava saagar). To be saved from the sea means release from the flux of life.

"Unchaare Kott Bahu Vechanaa" ginan is from the recently released Volume 6 of Nargis Balolia's album which consists of a total of 5 wonderfully recited ginans.

Hussein Janmohamed & Samidha Joglekar gave a live performance of the ginan “Saheb Ji Tu More Man Bhave” at St. Andrew’s United Church in Toronto, Ontario on July 18th, 2021.
