"Hardam Jampo Pir Shaah Nu Jaap," is a profound Ginan that guides the soul towards the luminous path of spiritual awakening. Delivered with the soulful voice of Taufiq Karmali and Laila Koradia and originally composed by Sayyida Imam Begum (r.a.). this piece is a beacon for those seeking to deepen their connection with the divine.

The lyrics invite the faithful to immerse themselves in the name of Pir Shah, encouraging a journey inward to the core of one's being. Through metaphorical references to awakening the lotus of the navel and uniting the three veins at the position of the third eye, the Ginan speaks to the transformative power of silent, internal worship. It transcends the physical, urging believers to sing without a mouth, hear without ears, and clap without hands, symbolizing a state of spiritual purity and enlightenment.

"Hardam Jampo Pir Shaah Nu Jaap" is a call to spiritual reflection and inner peace. This track is part of the album "Ilm-e-Maarifat" produced by Taufiq Karmali.
