Billo De Ghar (Punjabi: بلو دے گھر) is début album by Pakistani pop singer Abrar-ul-Haq. It was written, composed and sung by the artist and became a best selling album in South Asia at the time of its release in 1995. To date, more than 16 million copies of this song have been sold.[citation needed]The lyrics of the songs are in Punjabi and Urdu.

Although, the album's title song "Billo De Ghar" is in Punjabi, in all only three of its ten tracks are in Punjabi the rest are in Urdu.

"Murri Shehry Di Niki", one of three Punjabi tracks, is in a dialect of Punjabi called Pothohari which is mostly spoken in Murree, Islamabad and Rawalpindi. It may be an influence of the time Abrar spent in Islamabad for his Master's degree.
