Yak Rangi-o-Azadi Ae Himmat-e-Mardana!
O manly heart, the goal you seek is hard to gain like gem unique:
Get firm resolve and freedom true, If aim of life you wish to woo.
Ya Mard-e-Qalandar Ke Andaz-e-Mulookana!
Like Sanjar great and Tughral just to rule and conquer learn you must:
Or like a qalandar true and bold the wont and way of monarch hold.
Ya Fikr-e-Hakeemana Ya Jazb-e-Kaleemana!
Farabi’s thirst for lore beget, or Rumi’s fever great and fret:
You need a thinker’s lofty gaze, or Moses’ passion to amaze.
Ya Heela-e-Afrangi Ya Hamla-e-Tarkana!
Learn the wolfish tricks and guile, be like Franks in wit and wile:
Else own the passion of God’s Hand, or strike the foes like Tartar band.
Ya Naara-e-Mastana , Kaaba Ho Ke Butkhana!
Act on Muslim law and rites, or sit in fane like acolytes:
Be it the Shrine or temple high, ever like a drunkard cry.
Kuch Kaam Nahin Banta Be-Jurrat-e-Rindana
In whatsoever state you be, a fettered thrall or monarch free:
No wonder ever can be wrought, with Love, if courage be not fraught.
