Data Ganj Baksh Ali Hujwari writes about Khawaja Abu Ahmed Al Muzafer (Allah have mercy on them) ,
‘On a very hot summer day I visited him in a unsettled state. He inquired, What do you desire? I replied, Sama’a (audition). He immediately called for the cantors (qawwal).
During the sama’a session I remained extremely agitated. Eventually when I calmed down he inquired, How much did you enjoy this? I replied, O Sheikh! Very much indeed.
The Shaikh continued, A day will come when the sound of the sama’a and the cry of a crow will become same for you. The influence of sama’a is prior to witnessing the Reality (mushahida). After mushahida the desire for sama’a will vanishes. ‘
