Navroz Na Din Sohamna
Beautiful Day of Navroz
The composer of the ginan Sayyid Fateh Ali Shah travelled from Sind to Persia to meet Hazrat Imam Shah Khalilullah our 45th Imam.
On arriving at the destination on the day of Navroz, he learnt that the Imam had gone to the woods on a hunting expedition. Sayyid was disappointed but not in a mood to give up. He went into the woods in search of his Imam, was able to connect and was rewarded with a meeting – deedar – in the woods at the Fort.
In this ginan, Sayyid Fateh Ali Shah relates the combined experience of the zaheri deedar – the exoteric or physical glimpse or meeting, granted by the 45th Imam, Shah Khalilullah, and the inner joy of contentment and ecstasy that he experienced with the bestowal of Noorani – the spiritual or esoteric grace.
