Ke Jibraeel (A.S.) Se Hai Iss Ko Nisbat-e-Khoweshi
The free by dint of faqr life’s secrets can disclose:
With Gabriel faqr is bound by ties of kinship close.
Faqeeh-o-Sufi-o-Shayar Ki Na-Khush Andeshi
The scholar, mystic and the bard, by thinking wrong,
Many a bark have sunk, That was sound and strong.
Na Aah-e-Sard Ke Hai Gosafandi-o-Maishi
You need a burning glance that cows down lions bold:
Only the sheep and goats heave sighs deep and cold.
Tera Marz Hai Faqat Arzoo Ki Be-Naishi
Love’s physician scanned my face and thus he did bespeak,
“You have no ailment, but Your zeal is faint and weak.”
Ye Rang-o-Nam, Ye Lahoo, Aab-o-Naa Ki Hai Baishi
The soul that knows no stain is something quite discreet:
The glow and tint of blood is wrought by bread and meat.
