"A messenger reciting unto you the revelations of Allah made plain, that He may bring forth those who believe and do good works from darkness unto light." — Holy Qur'an 65:11


Transliteration and Literal Translation of Verses Pertaining to Dasond from Pir Hasan Kabirdin's Anant Akhado

For this project, I have presented 28 verses of Anant Akhado which pertain to the topic of dasond and have prepared a 7-day program to sing these verses. Please click on the links to see the transliteration and the translation of verses which will be recited on a particular day. On the output page, you will get the verses for the day with translation. If you need to print any of the outputs, just click on the 'printer friendly format' hyperlink which is located towards the bottom of the page. The Day 'All Verses' hyperlink listed below is an option to print all the 28 verses.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, All Verses


We have created an option of downloading the outputs for 7 weeks or all the 28 verses in PDF format. Please click on any of the following hyperlinks:


PDF Version: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, All Verses

For research purposes, we have created a search utility for the transliteration for all the 500 verses. Just type in a word without the diacritical marks and/or brackets, and you will get the results. For example, the word 'shah' will get you the results with the words containing 'shâh'; 'Harichandhra' will search for 'Haricha(n)dhra'. A separate utility has also been created for the translation for all the 500 verses.


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
