(Bang-e-Dra-037) Hazrat Bilal (Razi Allah Tala Anhu)

Bilal (R.A.)

Chamak Utha Jo Sitara Tere Muqaddar Ka
Habash Se Tujh Ko Utha Kar Hijaz Laya

As the star of your destiny ascended to shine
It lifted and brought you from Abyssinia to Hijaz

Huwi Issi Se Tere Ghumkade Ki Abadi
Teri Ghulami Ke Sadqe Hazar Azadi

This alone made inhabited your desolate house
Better than a thousand freedoms is your slavery

Woh Astan Na Chuta Tujh Se Aik Dam Ke Liye
Kisi Ke Shauq Men Tu Ne Maze Sitam Ke Liye

That threshold not even for a moment you could leave
In some one’s Love all torments you bore cheerfully

Jafa Jo Ishq Mein Hoti Hai Woh Jafa Hi Nahin
Sitam Na Ho To Mohabbat Mein Kuch Maza Hi Nahin

The oppression befalling in Love is not oppression
If there is no torment, there is no pleasure in Love

Nazar Thi Soorat-e-Salman (R.A.) Ada Shanas Teri
Sharab-e-Deed Se Bharti Thi Aur Piyas Teri

Full of Intellection like Salman was your insight
The wine of sight used to increase your thirst

Tujhe Nazare Ka Misl-e-Kaleem(A.S.) Souda Tha
Awais (R.A.) Taqat-e-Deedar Ko Tarasta Tha

Like Kaleem you were in search of the Sight
Uwais was tantalized for the power of Sight

Madina Teri Nigahon Ka Noor Tha Goya
Tere Liye To Ye Sehra Hi Toor Tha Goya

Madinah was the light for your eyes so to say
For you this wilderness was the Tur so to say

Teri Nazar Ko Rahi Deed Mein Bhi Hasrat-e-Deed
Khunak Dile Ke Tapedo Dame Naya Saeeyd

Your longing for Sight continued even after witnessing the Sight
The cold heart warmed up but its breath did not rest even for a moment

Gari Woh Barq Teri Jaan-e-Nashakaiba Par
Ke Khandazan Teri Zulmat Thi Dast-e-Musa Par

Such a lightning struck your impatient soul
That your darkness was scoffing at the Musa’s palm

Tapish Za Shaola Griftand Wa Bar-e-Dil Tozand
Che Barq-e-Jalwa Bakhashak-e-Hasil-e-Tozand!

“They captured warmth from the flame and struck it on your heart
What a lightning of Effulgence they struck on motes of your efforts!”

Adaye Deed Sarapa Niaz Thi Teri
Kisi Ko Dekhte Rehna Namaz Thi Teri

The charm of your longing for the Sight was the embodiment of supplication
The continuous sighting of someone was your prayer

Azan Azal Se Tere Ishq Ka Tarana Bani
Namaz Uss Ke Nazare Ka Ek Bahana Bani

Since eternity the adhan was the anthem of your Love
Prayer was the subtle pretext for the Sight

Khosha Woh Waqt Ke Yasrab-e-Maqam Tha Uss Ka
Khosha Woh Dour Ke Didar Aam Tha Uss Ka

Happy was the age when Yathrib was his abode!
How happy was the time when common was his Sight
