Perhaps the first ghazal that I ever sang was Alim Lakhnawi's
Duniya ko tune ishq ke qabil banaa diya
دنیا کو تونے عشق کے قابل بنا دیا
This was composed by my father and the musical scale is almost a pentatonic one- the melody is a very simple, beautiful one. I love to sing this ghazal and the poetry is very deep, beautiful and touching.
