Ishq Kamal عشق کمال Love Supreme- Original Soundtrack by Dr. Karim Gillani & Sufi Ensemble

After reading several books, you have earned a title of Judge (Qazi)

After wielding the sword, you have named yourself the warrior (Gazi)

After visiting Mecca & Madina you have proudly proclaimed yourself a pilgrim (Haaji)

You have gained nothing Bulleh, if your Beloved is not pleased with you! (Raazi)~ Hazrat Baba Bulleh Shah (R.A)

Recently released “Original” track by Dr. Karim Gillani & Sufi Ensemble based on the famous Kalam/poetry of Hazrat Baba Bulleh Shah (RA).

Humbled and excited to launch our original Sufi music video Ishq Kamal. This song is based on the famous Kalam/poetry of Hazrat Baba Bulleh Shah (RA). Sincere gratitude and thanks to all the talented artists, amazing dancers and wonderful musicians from the bottom of my heart. Many thanks for watching and supporting! Stay tuned for more creative endeavours & soulful musical productions! Dr. Karim Gillani
