The first episode of Coke Studio Season 12 is just two days away and people are already obsessing over the sneak peek into the show’s first song featuring Atif Aslam.
Aslam’s rendition of ‘Wohi Khuda Hai’ seems like the perfect start to the much-awaited season.
Dressed in an ethereal white sherwani, Aslam’s five-second clip of singing the line ‘Wohi Khuda Hai’ has made everyone excited for the full episode.
At #CokeStudio12, the rendition of #WohiKhudaHai presents Atif Aslam in a space that explores the very essence of the hamd; a glorification of the Divine.

I cannot wait for this hamd. #WohiKhudaHai is one of my favourite kalams by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan sab and from the BTS, it looks like Atif Aslam and his team have put a lot of effort in making this rendition. #CokeStudio12 pic.twitter.com/b5M4f8KYjL

Aslam dedicated the beautiful ‘hamd (hymn)’ to his five-year-old son saying, “When he grows up, he will listen to it and he will be happy that my father recited the Hamd.” He hopes that it will help his son find his own way to connect with the Divine.
The hamd has been written by Muzaffar Warsi. Wohi Khuda Hai was originally made iconic by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan as it became a national favourite.
Aslam had earlier impressed fans and critics with his renditions of ‘Tajdar-e-Haram’ and ‘Jal Pari’ in previous seasons of the show. We can only imagine the magic Aslam will create with his performance this time.
