(Bal-e-Jibril-039) Kamal-e-Tark Nahin Aab-o-Gill Se Mahjoori

Kamal-E-Tark Nahin Aab-O-Gil Se Mehjoori
Kamal-E-Tark Hai Taskheer-E-Khaki-O-Noori

The way to renounce is to conquer the earth and heaven;
The way to renounce is not to starve oneself to death.

Main Aese Faqr Se Ae Ahl-E-Halqa Baaz Aya
Tumhara Faqr Hai Be-Doulati-O-Ranjoori

O cultists! I like not your austere piety;
Your piety is penury, suffering and grief.

Na Faqr Ke Liye Mouzun, Na Saltanat Ke Liye
Who Qoum Jis Ne Ganwaya Mataa-E-Taimoori

A nation that has lost Taimur’s great heritage,
Is unfit for piety, and is unfit to rule.

Sune Na Saqi-E-Mehwash To Aur Bhi Acha
Ayar-E-Garmi-E-Sohbat Hai Harf-E-Maazoori

If the sweet cup‐bearer listens not to me, it is good;
When I say, “no more,” that will only bring me more.

Hakeem-O-Arif-O-Sufi, Tamam Mast-E-Zahoor
Kise Khabar K Tajalli Hai Ayn Mastoori

The Sufi and his peers are all engrossed in a glimpse;
They know not that concealment is itself a vision.

oh Multafat Hon To Kunj Qafs Bhi Azadi
Na Hon To Sehat-E-Chaman Bhi Maqam-E-Majboori

Bondage is freedom with favours from on high,
And when favours are withheld, Even freedom is bondage.

Bura Na Maan, Zara Azma Ke Dekh Isse
Farang Dil Ki Kharabi, Khirad Ki Maamoori

The West is a treasure‐house for the reason’s quest;
But for the heart it is a source of decay and death
