Author's comments:

1. Khwaja mean's something roughly like "master". It is used in Sufism for founders of Sufi orders.
2. Moinuddin (Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti) is the Sufi master of which this song sings. "Benefactor of the Poor" (gharib nawaz) is a popular epithet for him.
3. Ali is the son-in-law of Muhammad. Moinuddin, as with many Sufi masters, traces his ancestry to Ali.
4. Mustafa = Prophet Muhammad.
5. The word "peer", which I have translated "Master", refers to a spiritual guide in Sufism.
6. "Guardian of India" = "Hind al-Wali". The songs lyricist bunged up the Arabic grammar - it should be Wali al-Hind. Called so because he introduced Sufism to India.
