(Bal-e-Jibril-157) Sawal

A Question

Ek Muflas-e-Khud-Dar Ye Kehta Tha Khuda Se
Main Kar Nahin Sakta Gila-e-Dard-e-Faqeeri

A self‐respecting tramp was saying to the Almighty:
I dare not complain for my woes of poverty;

Lekin Ye Bata, Teri Ijazat Se Farishte
Karte Hain Atta Mard-e-Firomaya Ko Meeri?

But pray tell me if it is by your permission
That the angels bestow riches upon the worthless ones?
