Dargah - Qawwali
Qawwali is an integral part of the rituals here. A qawwali is a song in the praise of Allah. They are sung by the qawwals (devotional singers). It is believed that Amir Khusraw (1253-1325 A.D.), a famous Sufi saint and an expert, both in Indian and Persian music, introduced Qawwali into South Asian music. Qawwali as a musical form is closely linked to the sufic traditions of Islam and the particular practices that Sufi scholars developed to achieve closeness to God.
