Listen to this song from A.R. Rahman (Vande Maataram) which was inspired by the Sufi saint of Basra, Rabia Basri. She was one of the mystic saints in the early days of Islam. She spent her nights in prayers and had only a wink of sleep and regretted that much. Among her prayers was “O my Lord, the stars are shining and the eyes of men are closed and the kings have shut their doors and every lover is with his beloved and here am I alone with thee”.
