This is an Indian musical raga (composition) that appears in the Sikh tradition from northern India and is part of the Sikh holy scripture called Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji or SGGS for short. Every raga has a strict set of rules which govern the number of notes that can be used; which notes can be used; and their interplay that has to be adhered to for the composition of a tune.

In the SGGS, the Sikh holy Granth (book), there are a total of 60 raga ("Chapters") compositions and this raga is the thirty - first raga ("Chapter") to appear in the series. The composition in this raga appears on a total of 67 pages from page numbers 728 to 795.

Raag Suhi (ਸੂਹੀ) – Suhi is an expression of such devotion that the listener experiences feelings of extreme closeness and undying love. The listener is bathed in that love and genuinely comes to know what it means to adore.

Within this Raag (Chapter) Suhi, they used the following Sub Sections (Ghar)

Note: It is Guru Sahib’s Sovereignty and approach where they might want to skip numbering or some sub Section.

Guru Nanak Sahib Jee used Ghar 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, and 10.
Guru Amar das Jee used Ghar 1, 2, 3, and 10.
Guru Ramdas Jee used Ghar 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 10.
Guru Arjan Dev Jee used Ghar 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, and 10.
Further, Bhagat Baani is not assigned any Ghars, as it is not very long, that it would need sub section(Ghar) assignment within raagas.

Suhi is classified in the Ragmala as a ragini of Megha. It was a favourite with Muslims and was considered proper for the hot season. Today, this raga belongs to the Kah thata and its performance time is the late morning. In the Holy Book, two variants are given, Raga Suhi Lalit and Raag Suhi Kafi. Suhi was used by Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Guru Angad Dev Ji, Guru Amar Das Ji, Guru Ram Das Ji, and Guru Arjan Dev Ji for 130 hymns, a var, plus many slokas.
