(Bang-e-Dra-051) Na Ate, Humain Iss Mein Takrar Kya Thi

Na Ate, Humain Iss Mein Takrar Ka Thi
Magar Wada Karte Huwe Aar Kya Thi

If you had not come I would have had no occasion for contention
But what reluctance in making the promise was?

Tumhare Payami Ne Sub Raaz Khola
Khata Iss Mein Bande Ki Sarkar Kya Thi

Your messenger disclosed every secret
O Lord! What fault of Man in this was?

Bhari Bazm Mein Apne Ashiq Ko Tara
Teri Ankh Masti Mein Hushyar Kya Thi!

You recognized Your Lover in the full assembly
How alert Your eye in the middle of the ecstasy was!

Tammal To Tha Un Ko Ane Mein Qasid
Magar Ye Bata Tarz-e-Inkar Kya Thi

True! Reluctant he was to come, O messenger
But tell me what the manner of denial was

Khinche Khud-Ba-Khud Janib-e-Toor Musa (A.S.)
Kashish Teri Ae Shauq-e-Didar Kya Thi !

Musa was effortlessly attracted to Tur
How strong, O Zeal your attraction was!

Kahin Zikr Rehta Hai Iqbal Tera
Fasoon Tha Koi, Teri Guftar Kya Thi

Your fame continues somewhere, O Iqbal!
Some magic, not your speech it was
