Coke Studio Season 12 started today with a beautiful rendition of Hamd ‘Wohi Khuda Hai’ by Atif Aslam and fans are going crazy about it.
Earlier today, the video was released by Coke Studio and it has almost achieved a million views on YouTube. It was originally sung by the Legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and the Lyrics were composed by Muzaffar Warsi. The lyrics mainly highlight Allah’s supremacy who keeps balance and harmony in the universe.
Rohail Hyatt’s version of Nusrat’s kalaam has been well received and much praised by the audience.
Unlike the original version, Atif has sung the Hamd soft and slow which ends with a durud. Although it is relatively simple, yet it provides a grand feeling which people have enjoyed a lot.
Twitter went crazy as soon as the track was released. Atif Aslam was praised a lot after the release of the track, just like he was praised on the release of his previous cover of ‘Tajdar-e-Haram’. He is not just being praised in Pakistan, but fans from all over the world took to Twitter to commend Atif for his beautiful cover.
Here’s how the fans have reacted on Twitter:
NFAK's version had the power of a man sitting on the peak of a mountain, absorbing some kind of celestial energy to sing. Atif Aslam's #CokeStudio rendition of #WohiKhudaHai is humble and submissive, like a man in sajda. It's gentle & it's beautiful.

Atif Aslam dedicated his performance to his son. “I’d like to dedicate this performance to my son. He will grow up and listen to it. He will be proud that my father recited this hamd. I hope he understands what I said. I hope he finds his own journey and Allah in the process.”, Atif said in the BTS video.
He said while talking about the journey of his life, “I still don’t think I have made it. When I started, for the first few years, I used to think, with fame and money, I’d made it. But after that I asked myself, ‘What have you made? This is all material that you have.’ After that, the real search started. That is when the fun started. Even today, I am caught in that search. I will keep at it, always.”
