Bullah Ki Jaana (Punjabi: بُلھا کی جاناں (Shahmukhi), ਬੁਲ੍ਹਾ ਕੀ ਜਾਣਾ (Gurmukhi)) is one of the most-known Kafi poems written by the Punjabi Sufi saint Bulleh Shah.

In the 1990s Junoon, a rock band from Pakistan, rendered "Bullah Ki Jaana". In 2005, Rabbi Shergill's rock/fusion version of Bullah Ki Jaana became a chart-topper in India and Pakistan.[1][2] The Wadali Brothers, a Punjabi Sufi group from India, have also released a version of "Bullah Ki Jaana" on their album Aa Mil Yaar... Call of the Beloved. Another version was performed by Lakhwinder Wadali and entitled Bullah. The poem was also rendered by Arieb Azhar in his debut album "Wajj".
