Sakal Bana Phul' is a Sufi song. The song celebrates the arrival of Spring and also describes the longing of a lover in this season. It is said that one day, the poet saw a group of women dressed up in bright yellow Sarees, carrying bright mustard flowers were singing with utmost joy. Upon asking the women replied that they are dancing to celebrate the arrival of spring and are on their way to offer flowers to the goddess in the nearest temple. This inspired Amir Khushrow to write this poetry for his spiritual master Hazrat Nizamuddin.
