(Bal-e-Jibril-063) Maktabon Mein Kahin Ra'anai-e-Afkar Bhi Hai?

Maktabon Mein Kahin Raanayi-e-Afkaar Bhi Hai?
Khanqahon Mein Kahin Lazzat-e-Asrar Bhi Hai?

The schools bestow no grace of fancy fine,
Cloisters impart no glow of Love Divine.

Manzil-e-Rahrawan Door Bhi, Dushwar Bhi Hai
Koi Iss Qafle Mein Qafla Salaar Bhi Hai?

The goal that Travellers seek is far and wide,
Alas! There is no chief to lead and guide.

Barh Ke Khayber Se Hai Ye Maarka-e-Deen-o-Watan
Iss Zamane Mein Koi Haidar-e-Karar Bhi Hai?

No less than Khyber, the war of faith and land,
But warrior like Ali (R.A.) is not at hand.

Ilm Ki Had Se Pare, Banda-e-Momin Ke Liye
Lazzat-e-Shauq Bhi Hai, Naimat-e-Didar Bhi Hai

Beyond the bounds of science for faithful thrall
Is bliss of love and sight of God withal.

Peer-e-Maikhana Ye Kehta Hai Ke Aiwan-e-Farang
Sust Bunyad Bhi Hai, Aaeena Diwar Bhi Hai !

The chief of tavern thinks that West has raised
The house on shaking founds, whose walls are glazed.
