The lyrics of this A.R. Rahman song were inspired by Amir Khusro's ode to Moinuddin Chishti, "Kirpa Karo Maharaj".
The film had another version of this song with slightly different lyrics and sung by Nakash Aziz. This version was recorded after the audio release was done. Yet another version was recorded in the voice of A.R. Rahman, Murtaza Khan and Qadir Khan but not used.
