Arzi means an application or a request; the word arziyan, in Sufi poetry, is a medium which makes one feel close to God.

However, here’s a question: Why do we need arziyan when God is everywhere? In this episode of Urdunama, we try to answer this.

From reading Mallik Mohammad Jayasi’s poem ‘Padmavat’ to drawing parallels between ‘Aham Brahamasmi’ and ‘Ana-al-haq’ in Indian philosophy, this episode of Urdunama attempts to understand if it’s arziyan which help one reach God or the guru who does.

Professor Abdul Bismillah features in the podcast, and elucidates how arziyan has no place in Sufi thought and the guru, in fact, is the bridge between man and God.

Further, listen to Sufi singer Dhruv Sangari Bilal Chisti talking about why arziyan is a sacred word for him.
