(Bal-e-Jibril-149) Mohabbat

Mohabbat
Love 


Shaheed-e-Mohabbat Na Kafir Na Ghazi
Mohabbat Ki Rasmain Na Turki Na Tazi

The martyrs of Love are not Muslim nor Paynim,
The manners of Love are not Arab nor Turk!

Woh Kuch Aur Shay Hai, Mohabbat Nahin Hai
Sikhati Hai Jo Ghaznavi Ko Ayazi

Some passion far other than Love was the power
That taught Ghazni’s high ruler to dote on his slave.

Ye Johar Agar Kar Farma Nahin Hai
To Hain Ilm-o-Hikmat Faqat Sheesha Bazi

When the spirit of Love has no place on the throne,
All wisdom and learning vain tricks and pretence!

Na Mohtaj-e-Sultan, Na Maroob-e-Sultan
Mohabbat Hai Azadi-o-Be-Niazi

Paying court to no king, by no king held in awe,
Love is freedom and honor, whose scorn of the world

Mera Faqr Behtar Hai Iskandari Se
Ye Adam Gari Hai, Woh Aaeena Sazi

Holds more than the magic that made Alexander
His fabulous mirror—its magic makes man
