banda parvar mere har gham ka madava tum hu,mujhko duniya se gharaz kya meri duniya tum hu,ek nazar daaldo beemar shifa paa jaae,jis ka sani nahi voo masiha tum hu,taaj our takht ko kya khak nazar me laon,meri nazaro metu rehmat ka khazana tum hu.(SHIRI DAS)

Assalamu alaikkum Janab Tawfiq, please re upload and update the download links of Ustad Shamsuddin Faridi's musical treasures. Awaiting your possible action.

The link works perfectly. As by now everybody should know perhaps, Rapidshare limited its public traffic as of 27th of november 2012. So if the message comes up that the public traffic is exhausted you just have to wait till next morning (European time as Rapidshare is based in Switzerland).
