Iss Ki Taqdeer Mein Huzoor Nahin
Though reason to the portal guide,
Yet entry to it is denied.
Ankh Ka Noor Dil Ka Noor Nahin
Beg God to grant a lighted heart,
For light and sight are things apart.
Ye Woh Jannat Hai Jis Mein Hoor Nahin
Though knowledge lends to mind a glow,
No hoor is its Eden can ever show.
Aik Bhi Sahib-E-Suroor Nahin
How strange that in the present time
No one owns the joy sublime!
Ek Junoon Hai K Ba-Shaur Nahin
Some passions leave the mind intact,
While others make it blind to fact.
Aah Woh Dil K Na-Saboor Nahin
The heart from unrest gets its life,
What pity if it knows no strife!
Zinda Ho Tu To Be-Huzoor Nahin
You die because from God you flee,
If living, linked with God shall be.
Tu Hi Amada’ay Zahoor Nahin
The pearls have all their covering cleft,
Of urge to show you are bereft.
Ye Hadees-E-Kaleem (A.S)-O-Toor Nahin
Show unto me, though I too cry,
It is not tale of Moses and Sinai.
