One of my favorite qawwali is by great Nusrat Fateh Ali khan's "Gorakhdhanda". Simply divine

Alif is the first letter in arabic alphabet. Symbolizes Allah. Full lyrics with english translation can be found in the comments section.

There is a metaphorical meaning to the lines "Uccha saru gharoor mein, Kaddi naa phall paiye"
Saroo is a tree common across asia. Grows tall but never bears any fruit(edible) nor gives shade to anyone.

ہور وی نِیواں ہو، فقیرا
Hor vi neevan ho
O Fakir, Bow your head down even further in humility
اُچّا سرُو غرُور میں
Uccha saroon gharoor mein
There is great pleasure in holding the head high in arrogance
کدی نہ پَھل پائے، فقیرا
Kaddi naa phall paiye, fakira
O Fakir, But, that pleasure will never be fulfilling
ہور وی نیواں ہو، فقیرا
Hor vi neevan ho
O Fakir, Bow your head down even further in humility
پائے گا دیدار صاحب دا
Paiye gaa deedar sahib da
One day you will be bestowed with His presence
ہو رَبّا کوئی میرے دل دَیاں قدراں پچھانے
Ho rabba koi meray dil diyan kadraan pachanay
Lord, if only someone could understand the deliberations of my heart
میں سوالی جینہدا نئیں کوئی سوال
Mein sawali jinna naeen koi sawal
I am a seeker who seeks nothing
میں جوگن بَن دَر دَر پِھردیاں
Mein jogan ban dar dar phir diye
I am a wanderer, roaming from one land to another
میریاں رَمزاں پچھانے
Koi na meriyan, ramzaan pachanay
No one can unravel the secrets within me
چل میرے نال
Chal meray naal

Come, come along with me
چل میرے نال
Chal meray naal
Come, come along with me
ہور وی نِیواں ہو
Hor vi neevan ho
Bow your head down even further in humility

Poetry: Hazrat Shah Hussain

This is the song.Think you have inadvertently put the video to Aik alif and the translation to Hor Vi Neevan.

I am just in awe... discovered this group from movie, "The Reluctant Fundamentalist ". The song Kangna featured in this film (2013)

Fareed Ayaz has total mastery over various genres of classical music such as dhrupad, khayal, tarana, thumria and dadra which he blends beautifully during his performances of Qawwali. (Classical Qawwali according to him)

Hydrovac, I also saw them in Kabir triology (movies) made by Shabnam Virmani where she goes to Pakistan in search of Kabir and meets the brothers Abu Mohammad and Fareed Ayaz. They sing and talk about their music training from their father, Gharanas owning music styles, Pandits and Maulvis using music to their advantage etc. The brothers are talented no doubt.
