The Portrait Of Anguish

20 Jul

Ye Dastoor-e-Zuban Bandi Hai Kaisa Teri Mehfil Mein
Yahan To Baat Karne Ko Tarasti Hai Zuban Meri

Why does this custom of silencing exist in your assembly?
My tongue is tantalized to talk in this assembly 

Uthaye Kuch Waraq Lale Ne, Kuch Nargis Ne, Kuch Gul Ne
Chaman Mein Har Taraf Bikhri Huwi Hai Dastan Meri

O Candle! Drip like tears from the eye of the moth
Head to foot pathos I am, full of longing is my story

Elahi ! Phir Maza Kiya Hai Yahan Dunya Mein Rehne Ka
Hayat-e-Javidan Meri! Na Marg-e-Naghaan Meri !

O God! What is the pleasure of living so in this world?
Neither the eternal life, nor the sudden death is mine

Ye Sub Kuch Hai Magar Hasti Meri Maqsad Hai Qudrat Ka
Sarapa Noor Ho Jis Ki Haqiqat, Main Woh Zulmat Hun

Despite all this my existence is the Divine Purpose
Embodiment of light is whose reality, that darkness I am

Khazeena Hun, Chupaya Mujh Ko Musht-e-Khak-e-Sehra Ne
Kisi Ko Kya Khabar Hai Main Kahan Hun Kis Ki Doulat Hun!

I am a treasure, concealed in the wilderness dust
No one knows where I am, or whose wealth I am?

Watan Ki Fikar Kar Nadan! Musibat Ane Wali Hai
Teri Barbadiyon Ke Mashware Hain Asmanon Mein

Think of the homeland, O ignorant one! Hard times are coming
Conspiracies for your destruction are afoot in the heavens

Mohabbat Hi Woh Manzil Hai Ke Manzil Bhi Hai, Sehra Bhi
Jaras Bhi, Karwan Bhi, Rahbar Bhi, Rahzan Bhi Hai

Love is the only stage which is the stage as well as the wilderness
It is the bell, the caravan, the leader as well as the robber

You, who despise the shore, rise up and make yourself boundless.

20 Jul

Sabaq Phir Parh Sadaqat Ka, Adalat Ka, Shujaat Ka
Liya Jaye Ga Tujh Se Kaam Dunya Ki Imamat Ka

Read again the lesson of truth, of justice and valour!
You will be asked to do the work of taking on responsibility for the world.

 

Koi Andaza Kar Sakta Hai Uss Ke Zor-E-Bazu Ka !
Nigah-E-Mard-E-Momin Se Badal Jati Hain Taqdeerain

Can anyone even guess at the strength of his arm?
By the glance of the man who is a true believer even destiny is changed.

 

Hawas Ne Kar Diya Tukre Tukre Nu-E-Insan Ko
Akhuwat Ka Byan Ho Ja, Mohabbat Ki Zuban Ho Ja

Greed has split mankind into little pieces;
Become the statement of brotherhood, become the language of love.

 

Ye Hindi, Who Khurasani, Ye Afghani, Who Toorani
Tu Ae Sharminda-E-Sahil ! Uchal Kar Be-Karan Ho Ja

Here are Indians, there people of Khurasan, here Afghans, there Turanians—
You, who despise the shore, rise up and make yourself boundless. 

@Allama Iqbal

Sajda Khaaliq ko bhi, iblees say yarana bhi,

20 Jul

 

Ishq qaatil say bhi, maqtool say hamdardi bhi,

Yeh bta kis say muhabbat ki jaza mangay ga.

Sajda Khaaliq ko bhi, iblees say yarana bhi,

Hashr mein kis say aqeedat ka sila mangay ga.
