Dekh Khuda ki shaan saheli

Posted on: September 20, 2012


“Elaan” (1947) was one of the major movies of Mehboob Productions and one whose messages are relevant even today. This movie, which was produced and directed by Mehboob Khan had Surendra, Munawwar Sultana, Zebunissa, Agha, Shahnawaz, W. M. Khan, Leela Mishra, Rita, Shaheda, Subhasini, Reehan, Mohammad Afzal etc in it.

As many as nine songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the tenth song from the movie. It is a wedding song, in which the sahelis of the bride sing this song.

The song is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewaali and chorus. Zia Sarhadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

I guess that the bride is Munawwar Sultana, but who is the actress lip syncing in Zohrabai Ambalewaali’s voice ? I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her as well as others in the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Atif M.

Chorus

Lyrics(Provided by Atif M)

dekh khuda ki shaan saheli
dekho khuda ki shaan
dekh khuda ki shaan saheli
dekho khuda ki shaan

hooron ki pehchaan
farishton ke ghar ki mehmaan
hooron ki pehchaan
farishton ke ghar ki mehmaan
dulhan kya hai armaanon ki jaan
saheli dekho khuda ki shaan

aankhen jaise noor ke pyaale
aankhen jaise noor ke pyaale
lambe gesoo kaale kaale
lambe gesoo kaale kaale
aisi naazuk aisi patli
jaise teer kamaan
aisi naazuk aisi patli
jaise teer kamaan
saheli dekho khuda ki shaan

pyaari pyaari naazon waali
pyaari pyaari naazon waali
aan niraali shaan niraali
aan niraali shaan niraali
dulhan ki peshaani ka bal
pariyon ka sultaan
dulhan ki peshaani ka bal
pariyon ka sultaan
saheli dekho khuda ki shaan
dekh khuda ki shaan
saheli dekho khuda ki shaan
