Lab Pe Aati Hai - Finest Prayer written for younger generation
This article was originally written on 5th July, 2016
The most beautiful ‘Lab Pe Aati Hai’ ‘dua’ once sung as a school song in school assemblies of Pakistan is lost somewhere in the history. When I started school in 1995, we sang ‘Qaumi Taranah’, the National Anthem of Pakistan, which is written in Persian. To be honest, I merely met someone who would talk about it or its meaning. Nonetheless the echo of the National Anthem sung by us woke up all the residents of Harley Street but I’m sure most of the students didn't know what they were saying. So before completing school I searched for its meaning and realized that it is nationalistic as compared to the ‘dua’ which is written in our national language.
