While he started his music career by singing covers of other artists and bands, Abdullah has been releasing his own music simultaneously, including Kali Santro, Daastan, Intezar. For the past few years, he has been releasing a Hamd to commemorate the auspicious month of Ramzan. Previously, he revamped the ever-loved, Wohi Khuda Hai by the legend Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Aye Khuda by Adnan Sami Khan.

Every year, he appeared on various shows of Ramzan transmissions to spread the message of Allah and people looked forward to his wisdom and insights. Illahi Teri Chokhat Par recites the praise and glory of Allah. It is a rendering and declaration of love for Allah told in a poetic manner.

The simple yet profound video is directed by Saad Hashmi and produced by Musa Javaid. It has been released on Abdullah Qureshi’s official YouTube channel and other social media platforms.
