After teasing the fans with the BTS video, Coke Studio finally aired its first episode starting with Wohi Khuda Hai remastered by Atif Aslam. And honestly, no words can describe how beautifully Atif Aslam has executed the hamd!
Within a few hours of the release the hashtags #CokeStudio, #WohiKhudaHai and Atif Aslam were trending at top 3 trends on Twitter, gathering love and praise from people all around the country:
The hamd spoke to many on a very personal level and despite music being subjective for every individual, the internet was loving it altogether:
Imo, the only vocalist that comes close to doing any justice to something nfak has already perfected is atif aslam, and with rohail hyatt’s brilliance, coke12 is off to a brilliant start.

Say what you want about Atif but he has come a long way in his musical journey. He has always had a golden voice which is why people have always liked him but how his voice and singing has polished over the years is astounding. Literal goosebumps on his Hamd in #CokeStudio12 ❤️❤️

People found Atif’s rendition to be gentle:
NFAK's version had the power of a man sitting on the peak of a mountain, absorbing some kind of celestial energy to sing. Atif Aslam's #CokeStudio rendition of #WohiKhudaHai is humble and submissive, like a man in sajda. It's gentle & it's beautiful.

People made sure to remember the writer of the kalaam:
Now that all the singers of "Wohi Khuda Hai" are being praised, let's not forget the writer who wrote this masterpiece.
Meet Muzaffar Warsi, ladies and gentlemen. Born in Meerut in 1933 & passed away in 2011 in Lahore.
And oh he wrote Tu Kuja Man Kuja too. Rip, Sir.#CokeStudio12 pic.twitter.com/6lSlc5CQqS

Veena Malik too loved the hamd and the soulful nature of Atif’s voice:
#WohiKhudaHai is so soulfully done. It gives you a feeling of being in your sujood and Durood Shareef at the end gave goosebumps. Wonderful job done by @itsaadee on vocals. #CokeStudio12 #AtifAslam @rohailhyatt 👏👏
