Introduction:
Mehdi Hassan,(Urdu: مہدی حسن) is a Pakistani ghazal singer and a former playback singer for Lollywood. He is famously known as “King Of Ghazal”. Along with Ahmed Rushdi, he has ruled Pakistan film industry.
Born and Starting Life:
Hassan was born in the village of Luna in Jhunjhunu district in Rajasthan, India in 1927 into a Shia Muslim family of traditional musicians. He claims to be the 16th generation of hereditary musicians hailing from the Kalawant.

He received his musical training under his father, Ustad Azeem Khan and his uncle Ustad Ismail Khan who were classical musicians, well-versed in the dhrupad style of singing. They instructed him in classical music and voice production within the framework of classical forms of thumri, dhrupad, khayal and dadra, from the age of eight.

Hassan started to perform at a young age and the first concert of dhrupad and kheyal with his elder brother is reported to have been held in Fazilka Bungla near Ferozepur. After the Partition of India and pakistan, 20-year-old Hassan and his family migrated to Pakistan and suffered severe financial hardships. To make ends meet, Hassan began working in a bicycle shop and later became a car and diesel tractor mechanic.
Career
The struggle ended when Mehdi Hassan was given the opportunity to sing on Radio Pakistan in 1952, primarily as a thumri singer, which earned him recognition within the musical fraternity. At the time, Ustad Barkat Ali Khan, Begum Akhtar and Mukhtar Begum were considered the stalwarts of ghazal gayaki.

He also had a passion for Urdu poetry and began to experiment by singing ghazals on a part-time basis. He cites radio officers Z.A. Bukhari and Rafiq Anwar as additional influences in his progression as a ghazal singer.

He has been the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions: the Tamgha-i-Imtiaz granted to him by Gen Ayub Khan; the Pride of Performance bestowed on him by Gen Ziaul Haq; and the Hilal-i-Imtiaz conferred by Gen Pervez Musharraf. Besides the Nigar Film and Graduate Awards from Pakistan, he was presented the Saigal Award in Jalandhar, India, in 1979, whereas the Gorkha Dakshan Bahu Award was given to him in Nepal in 1983. Recently, he travelled to Dubai to receive yet another award.

Top Ghazals of Mehdi Hassan:
Aage barhe na qissa -e -ishq -e- butaan se hum
Aaj Tak Yaad Hai Woh Piar Ka Manzar
Aankhon Se Mili Aankhen
Aap Ki Aankhon Ne
Aaye Kuchh Abr Kuchh Sharaab Aaye
Ab Ke Hum Bichde To Shaayad Kabhi Khwaabon Mein Mile
Ae Raushnion Ke Shahr
Aik Bus Tu Hi Nahin
Apnon Ne Gham Diye To Yaad Aa Gaya
Bhuuli bisri chand umeedein
Chalte ho to chaman ko chaliye
Charaag-e-toor Jalao Bada Andhera Hai
Dekh to dil keh jaan se uthta hai
Dil-E-Nadan Tujhe Hua Kya Hai ( Lyrics: Mirza Ghalib )
Dil Ki Baat Labon Par Laakar
Dil Men Toofan Chupae Betha Hon
Duniya Kisi Ke Pyaar Mein Jaanat Se Kam Nahin
Dayam Pada Hua Tere Dar Pe Nahi Hoon Main
Ek Bar Chale Aao
Ek Sitam Aur Meri Jaan, Abhi Jaan Baqi Hai
Fikr Hii Thaharii To Dil Ko Fikr-E-Khubaa.N Kyo.N Na Ho
Ga Mere Dewane Dil
Garmii-E-Hasarat-E-Naakaam Se Jal Jaate Hai.N
Gulo.N Me.N Rang Bhare, Baad-E-Naubahaar Chale
Gulshan gulshan shola e gul ki
Guncha-e-Shauq Laga hei Khilne
Hamari Sanson Men Aaj Tak
Har Dard Ko
Hum mei koi ghum nahi tha ghum-e-aashiqi sai pahlay
Ik Husn Ki Dewi Se Mujhe Pyaar Hua Thaa
Jab Bhi Aati Hei Teri Yaad Kabhi Shaam ke Baad
Jab Bhi Chahen Ek Nai Sorat
Jab Bhi Pee Kar
Jab Koi Piar Se Bulaae Ga
Jahan Jake Chain
Kahan Gai Woh Wafa
Khuli Jo Aankh Woh Tha
Kiya Hei Pyaar Jisse Humne Zindagi ki Tarah
Kya Bhala Mujhko Parakhne Ka Nateeja Nikla
Kyoon Humse Khafa Ho Gaye Ae Jaan-E-Tamanna
Main Hosh Mein Tha
Main Khyala hu kisi aur ka
Mohabat Karne Wale
Mohabat Zindagi Hai Aur Tum Meri Mohabat Ho
Mujhe Tum Nazar Se Gira To Rahe Ho
Naavak andaz jidhar diida-e-jaana honge
Patta Patta Boota Boota
Phuul hi phuul khil utthe
Pyaar Bhare Do Sharmile Nain
Rafta Rafta Wo Meri Hasti Ka Saamaan Ho Gaye
Ranjish Hi Sahi Dil Hi Dukhaane Ke Liye Aa
Rim Jhim Ki Barsaat Hai Aur Jaage Huye Jazbaat Hain
Saamne Aa Ke Tujhko Pukara Nahin
Sahar Ho Rahi Hai
Shikwa Na Kar Gila Na Kar Ye Duniya Hai Pyaare
Shola Tha Jal Bujha Hoon
Tanha Thi Aur Hamesha Se Tanha Hai Zindagi
Tark-e-Ulfat Ka Sila
Tere Bheege Badan Ki Khooshboo Se
Tere Mere Piar Ka Aisa Nata Hai
Toote Hue Khwabon Ke Liye
Thah ar Thorri Der To
Tu Meri Zindagi Hei (Copied by Nadeem Sharavan in “Ashiqi” Hindi Movie India)
Usne Jab Meri Taraf
Uzr Aane Mein Bhi Hei Aur Bulaate bhi nahin
Wo Dil Nawaaj Hei Lekin Nazar Shinaas Nahin
Yaaro Kisii Qaatil Se Kabhii Pyaar Na Maa.Ngo
Ye Dhooan Kahan Se Uthta Hei
Ye Kaghzi Phool Jaise Chahre
Ye Mojazaa Bhii Muhabbat Kabhii Dikhaaye Mujhe
Ye Tera Naazuk Badan Hai Ya Koi Mehka Gulaab
Yoon Zindagi Ki Raah Mein Takra Gaya Koi
Zindagi Mein To Sabhi Pyaar Kiya Karte Hain
Zulf Ko Teri Ghataon Ka Payam Aaya Hai
