(Armaghan-e-Hijaz-35) Che Kafarana Qimar-e-Hayat Mee Bazi (چہ کافرانہ قمارحیات می بازی) How heretically do you play the game of life?

(14)
Che Kafarana Qimar-E-Hiyat Mee Bazi
Kh Ba Zamana Ba-Sazi Bakhud Namee Sazi

How heretically do you play the game of life?
you adjust yourself to times, rather than to thine self.

Digar Bamadrasa Haye Haram Namee Beenam
Dil-E-Junaid-O-Nigah-E-Ghazali-O-Razi

I no longer see in the schools
heart of Junaid and insight of Ghazali and Razi.

Bahukam-E-Mufti-E-Azam Ke Fitrat-E-Az Leest
Badeen-E-Suawa Haraam Ast Kar-E-Shahbazi

Nature—the great lawgiver—decrees:
the ways of falcon are forbidden in the religion of sparrows.

Haman Faqeeh-E-Azal Guft Jurrah Shaheen Ra
Basman Garwi Baz  Mein Na Pardazi

The same heavenly law-giver decreed for the male falcon:
fly about the skies, don’t deal with the earth.

Manam Ke Tauba Na Kardam Zfaash Goi Haa
Zbeem-E-Ayn Ke Basultan Kunand Ghammazi

I have not left speaking the naked truth,
though the people may speak ill of me before the kings.

Badast-E-Ma Na Samarqand Wa Ne Bukhara Aeest
Dua Bagoz Faqeeran Ba Turk-E-Sheerazi

We have neither Samarkand nor Bukhara to offer,
the dervish can only pray for the Shirazi Turk
