Agarcha Maghribiyon Ka Junoon Bhi Tha Chalaak
Intuition in the West was clever in its power,
But had not the plenitude for absolute abandon.
Naseeb-e-Madrasa Ya Rab Ye Aab-e-Atish Naak
The quintessence of life is the force of faith supreme—
It is a force denied to all our seats of learning.
Ye Kehkashan, Ye Sitare, Ye Neelgoon Aflaak
The galaxies, the planets, the firmament, are all
Waiting for man’s rise, like a star in heaven.
Damagh Roshan-o-Dil Teerah-o-Nigah Bebaak
Brains are bright and hearts are dark and eyes are bold,
Is this the sum and substance of what our age has gained?

The world is a haystack for the fire of the Muslim soul,
But if thou art eyeless, thou canst not find thy way.
Kise Khabar Ke Junoon Bhi Hai Sahib-e-Idraak
To a multitude of men, reason is the guide,
They know not that frenzy has a wisdom of its own.
Mere Kalam Pe Hujjat Hai Nukta-e-Loulaak
The world entire is a legacy of the Man of Faith:
I say it on the authority of we would not have created it.
