(Bal-e-Jibril-061) Dhoond Raha Hai Farang Aysh-e-Jahan Ka Dawam

(France Mein Likhe Gye)
(Written in France)

Dhoond Raha Hai Farang Aysh-e-Jahan Ka Dawam
Waye Tamana-e-Kham, Waye Tamana-e-Kham !

The West seeks to make life a perpetual feast;
A wish in vain, in vain, in vain!

Peer-e-Haram Ne Kaha Sun Ke Meri Ruedad
Pukhta Hai Teri Faghan, Ab Na Isse Dil Mein Thaam

Aware of my state, my spiritual guide assures me,
Thy ecstasy has reached the plenitude of its power.

Tha Arini Go Kaleem, Main Arini Go Nahin
Uss Ko Taqaza Rawa, Mujh Pe Taqaza Haraam

Moses asked for a Divine glimpse, but I do not:
The demand was right for him; but is forbidden for me.

Gharche Hai Afsaye Raaz, Ahl-e-Nazar Ki Fagahan
Ho Nahin Sakta Kabhi Shewa-e-Rindana Aam

The plaint of the Men of God betrays (opens) a suppressed secret;
But the ways of the Men of God are not meant for all.

Halqa-e-Sufi Mein Zikr, Benam-o-Besouz-o-Saaz
Main Bhi Raha Tashna Kaam, Tub Hi Raha Tashna Kaam

Zikr in the Sufis’ circle was devoid of ecstasy,
I remained unsatisfied, and so was everyone.

Ishq Teri Intaha, Ishq Meri Intaha
Tu Bhi Abhi Na-Tamam, Main Bhi Abhi Na-Tamam

Love is thy goal, and mine, too, but both
Are so far novices on the path of love.

Aah Ke Khoya Gya Tujh Se Faqeeri Ka Raaz
Warna Hai Maal-e-Faqeer Saltanat-e-Rome-o-Sham

Alas! Thou hast betrayed the secret of a fakir,
Though a fakir has wealth more than a king of men.
