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!
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.
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!
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
Ye Adam Gari Hai, Woh Aaeena Sazi
Holds more than the magic that made Alexander
His fabulous mirror—its magic makes man
