Diya Hai Main Ne Inhain Zauq-e-Atish Ashami
The Gnostic and the common throng new life have gained through my song:
I have conferred relish fine on them for Loveʹs fiery wine.
Ke Tar Tar Huwe Jama Haye Ahrami
Some Ajami near the Holy Shrine did sadly sing this song and pine,
“Alas! the robes by pilgrims worn to threads and pieces now are torn.”
Badalte Rehte Hain Andaz-e-Kufi-o-Shami
The place of Husain (R.A.), the Martyr great is fact, not bound to Space or Date,
Though the Syrians and the Kufis may often change their wont and way.
Na Rang Laye Kahin Tere Hath Ki Khami
The gamblers who with you compete are deft of band and they can cheat:
Your fumbling shaky hands, I fear, May bring about your ruin so drear.
Shikoh-e-Sanjar-o-Faqr-e-Junaid (R.A.)-o-Bastami (R.A.)
No wonder If the Muslims gain Their ancient glory once again–
Sanjarʹs splendour pomp and state, The piety and faqr of mystics great.
Teri Nigah Mein Thi Meri Na-Khush Andami
The robe of art and lore I wear is through Your special bounty there:
You know my coarse and homely frame, To honour great I have no claim.
