Irtiqa
Evolution

Staiza Kaar Raha Hai Azal Se Ta Amroz
Charagh-e-Mustafavi (S.A.W.) Se Sharar-e-Bu-Lahbi

Struggle has continued from eternity till the present day
Between the lamp of Mustafa and the spark of Bu Lahab

Hayat Shaola Mazaj-o-Ghayoor-o-Shor Angaiz
Sarisht Iss Ki Hai Muskhil-Kashi, Jafa-Talbi

Life is flame‐tempered, high‐minded and fervent
It’s nature is resolving difficulty, bearing cruelty

Sukoot-e-Shaam Se Ta Naghma-e-Sehargahi
Hazar Marhala Haye Faghan-e-Neem-Shabi

From the evening’s quietude till the morning’s song
There are many a stage of the midnight wailing!

Kasha-Kashe Zam-o-Garma, Tab-o-Tarash-o-Kharash
Za-Khak-e-Teer Darun Ta Ba Sheesha-e-Jalbi

Struggle exists between the heat and cold, throbbing and shaping
From the dark dust to the polished glass of Halab

Maqam-e-Bast-o-Shikast-o-Fashar-o-Souz-o-Kasheed
Mayan-e-Qatra-e-Neesan-o-Aatish-e-Ghibi

The phenomena of making and breaking, squeezing, heating and distilling
Exist between the drop of spring rain and the heat of the grape wine!

Issi Kasha-Kash-e-Peham Se Zinda Hain Aqwam
Yehi Hai Raaz-e-Tab-o-Taab-e-Millat-e-Arabi

Nations live by this continuous struggle alone
This alone is the secret of the Arab nation’s struggle

“Maghan Ke Dana-e-Angoor Aab Mee Sazand
Sitara Mee Shaknand, Aftab Mee Saazand”

“The tavern‐keepers making wine from the grape
Break the stars and construct the sun”
