(Bal-e-Jibril-004) Gaisu-e-Tabdar Ko Aur Bhi Tabdar Kar (گیسوۓ تابدار کو اور بھی تابدار کر) Bright are Your tresses: brighten them even more

Gaisuay Tabdar Ko Aur Bhi Tabdar Kar
Hosh-o-Khirad Shakar Kar, Qalb-o-Nazar Shakar Kar

Bright are Your tresses: brighten them even more:
Ravish the senses and the mind, ravish the heart and the eyes.

Ishq Bhi Ho Hijab Mein, Husn Bhi Ho Hijab Mein
Ya Tu Khud Ashkar Ho Ya Mujhe Aashkar Kar

Love concealed, and beauty too!
Reveal Yourself to me, or reveal me to myself.

Tu Hai Muheet-e-Bekaran, Mein Hun Zara Si Aabjoo
Ya Mujhe Hamkinar Kar Ya Mujhe Bekinar Kar

You are the limitless ocean and I am but a tiny rivulet—
Either make Your peer or turn me limitless at least.

Main Hun Sadaf Tou Tere Hath Mere Guhar Ki Abroo
Mein Hun Khazaf Tou Tu Mujhe Gohar-e-Shahwar Kar

If I am a mother‐of‐pearl, the lustre of my pearl is in Your hands,
But if I am a piece of brick, give me a diamond’s sheen.

Naghma’ay Nau Bahar Agar Mere Naseeb Mein Na Ho
Iss Dam-e-Neem Souz Ko Taeerak-e-Bahar Kar

If I am not destined to sing at the advent of Spring,
Make this half‐enraptured breath a skylark of the Spring. 

Bagh-e-Bahisht Se Mujhe Hukam-e-Safar Diya Tha Kyun
Kaar-e-Jahan Daraz Hai, Ab Mera Intizar Kar

Why did You order me to quit the Garden of Eden?—
Now there is much to be done here—so just wait for me!

Roz-e-Hisab Jab Mera Paish Ho Daftar-e-Amal
Aap Bhi Sharamsaar Ho, Mujh Ko Bhi Sharamsaar Kar

When the roll of my deeds is brought up on the Day of Reckoning,
Be ashamed as You will shame me.

  1. u have made translation of 1st verse as under:
    "Bright are Your tresses: brighten them even more".

    i think here "tabdar" means more twisted or wavy, like 'pech o tab'. please consider.

    1. Both are correct

      Tabdar means roshan, chamkdaar, pechdar, khamdar etc
      but brighten is better word here.

  10. one of the finest gazls of Allama,: the another verse of different gzal is equally important to understand Allama's skepticism about the above mentioned verse and status of 'mehshar'''Pursheshe haal say maqsad tha rusvyee mere,varna vogh jantey thae yegh kiyu huva kasey huva'.

  16. The word TAAB means SHINE. As in Aab-o-Taab. PEECH (Also pronounced as PAICH) means convolution. However In the construction Peech-o-Taab, TAAB has a completely different meaning, that is PAIN.
