They say a man is as good as his work, and Junaid Jamshed never let us down. Whether it was during his music era, or as a religious scholar, he was always an inspiration. Throughout our lives, mourning someone’s loss, through our break ups, Vital Signs and Junaid Jamshed were always our go-to people for some solace of the heart. While JJ left behind music a while ago, his songs still resonate with us and we are celebrating his life and work.

socho to zara junglon mein raaste to hain

humein bhi koi mil hi jaye ga’

kubhi socha na tha jo wo hogaya’

faasle simat jayeinge’

ghum ko humesha muskura ke chupana

chehron se rang aankhon se khwaab sub kuch ura ke legayi’

teri hi soch mein gum rahi

phir bhi jaane mujhe kiun ye ehsas hai

jese chaahet meri kam rahi’

‘ mein tumhaare qareeb tum mere paas ho

aur kuch ho na ho bus ye ehsaas ho

tum mere paas ho’

kubhi na hum aaye na tum aaye

ubh aaya houn to ye kehte hue mehsoos hote hai

akele phir nahi aana’

‘tum gaye jub se sard galliyoun mein dhoop aati nahi’

  1. Deir Ho Gayi Laut Aao

har mor tanha

bohat chup khara hai jungle

aa jao

deir ho gayi laut aao’

He left behind a legacy that only few can match and we are truly praying for him and his family, and all the families who lost people they love in PK 661. May you always shine bright, Junaid.
