Advice

Mein Ne Iqbal Se Azrah-e-Nasihat Ye Kaha
Aamil-e-Roza Hai Tu Aur Na Paband Namaz

One day by way of advice I said to Iqbal
Neither you fast nor are regular in prayers

Tu Bhi Hai Shewa-e-Arbab-e-Raya Mein Kamil
Dil Mein Landan Ki Hasas, Lab Pe Tere Zikr-e-Hijaz

You are also perfect in the ways of hypocritical people
You pine for London in the heart but you talk of Hijaz

Jhoot Bhi Maslahat Amaiz Tera Hota Hai
Tera Andaz-e-Tamluq Bhi Sarapa Ejaz

Your lies are also based on what is expediency
The manner of your flattery also is fully miraculous

Khatam Taqreer Teri Midhat-e-Sarkar Pe Hai
Fikr-e-Roshan Hai Tera Mujad-e-Aaeen-e-Niaz

Your lecture ends on glorification of the government
Your bright thought is the inventor of methods of entreating

Dar-e-Hukkam Bhi Hai Tujh Ko Maqam-e-Mehmood
Palicy Bhi Teri Pecheeda Ter Az Zulf-e-Ayaz

Officials’ doors are also like Maqam‐i‐Mahmud to you
Your designs are more interlocked than locks of Ayaz’ hair

Aur Logon Ki Tarah Tu Bhi Chupa Sakta Hai
Parda-e-Khidmat-e-Deen Mein Hawas-e-Jah Ka Raaz

Like other people you can also conceal
Secrets of self aggrandizement in your cloak of din’s service

Nazar Aa Jata Hai Masjid Mein Bhi Tu Eid Ke Din
Asr-e-Wa’az Se Hoti Hai Tabiat Bhi Gudaz

You are seen in the mosque also on the Eid day
Your heart is also softened by the sermon’s effect

Dast Parward Tere Mulk Ke Akhbar Bhi Hain
Chairna Farz Hai Jin Par Teri Tashheer Ka Saaz

You practice reading country’s newspapers also
Which are obligated to sing your repute’s songs

Iss Pe Turra Hai Ke Tu Shair Bhi Keh Sakta Hai
Teri Meenaye Sukhan Mein Hai Sharab-e-Shiraz

On top of all this you can also write verse
Your poetry’s goblets are full of the wine of Shiraz

Jitne Ausaf Hain Leader Ke, Wo Hain Tujh Mein Sabhi
Tujh Ko Lazim Hai Ke Ho Uth Ke Shareek-e-Tag-o-Taaz

Whatever are the attributes of leaders, you have them all
Incumbent on you is rising and joining the struggle

Gham-e-Sayyad Nahin, Aur Par-o-Baal Bhi Hain
Phir Sabab Kya Hai, Nahin Tujh Ko Damagh-e-Parwaz

You are not afraid of hunters, as you have wings also
Then why are you not inclined for flight?

“Aaqabat  Manzil-e-Ma Wadi-e-Khamoshan-e-Ast
Haliya Ghughula Dar Gunbad-e-Aflak Andaz”

“The end of our life is the cemetery
Presently raise tumult in the sky’s vault”
