Adawat Hai Isse Sare Jahan Se
O Lord! Strange is the piety of the preacher
He has animosity towards the whole world
Kahan Jata Hai, Ata Hai Kahan Se
Nobody has so far understood that Man
Where he is going, and from where he has come?
Chamak Tare Ne Payi Hai Jahan Se
From the same source has the night obtained darkness
From where the star has obtained brightness
Suna Karte Hain Apne Raazdan Se
The tale of our compassion is
Always related by our sympathizer
Larz Jata Hai Awaz-e-Azan Se
Very subtle are the ways of the preacher
He trembles on hearing the sound of adhan (Azan)!
