Qawal means Song of God in persian. I think its great that the Great Ustad Nusrat fateh Ali Khan performed in darbaar sahib, its great having someone from another culture singing songs about god with our comunity.

As for the claping, in qawali, clapping is the sufi way of praising god...that is why in 99% of hamd qawals (Songs of Allah) there is clapping.

So in this case i think it is acceptable to have claping in a darbarr sahib.

By the way.. Wannabekaur,could you tell me where you found that video..i would love to see it. thank you

Whats wrong in clapping if its in tune with the song. It just enhances the experience. we use chhanie, dholki etc. just for the enhancement....and if the sound is from the striking of two hands (instead of one hand and dholki)....whats the problem?

guys its those fundamentalists that say that clapping is prohibited, i clap, dont you, when some one gets an award you clap to praise them, however fundamentalists feel that when someone want to praise god they cant clap their hands! one word hipocritical!

Harmander Sahib follows a strict rehit on the way raggis do keertan inside darbar sahib. Clapping is certainly not allowed and there are many many other stuff which are happening in our society but isn't allowed in darbar sahib. clapping is not sikhi at all.. Crying with joy (which happens normal in our society) is also not allowed.. In darbar sahib if some bibi or guy get lagan and cry out of loud in khushi or stuff.. he/she asked to leave and go outside as it disturbs other meditation...

Clapping is not allowed when singing sikh bani in sangat... whether its nusrat fateh ali khan or bhai dya singh :D

Chardi kala !
