Chashm-e-Meher-o-Mah-o-Anjum Ko Tamashayi Kar
Lift the veil from thy Face and be manifest in the assembly
Make the eyes of the sun, moon and stars thy spectators
Be-Hijabana Mere Dil Se Shanasayi Kar
If thou art the lightning how long this secret winking?
Make acquaintance with my heart without a veil.
Tere Seene Mein Agar Hai To Masihayi Kar
The warm breath’s effect is the miracle of life
If it is on thy breast perform life‐giving miracles
Apni Hasti Se Ayan Shuala’ay Seenayi Kar
How long should begging be on the Tur like Kaleem!
Make the flame of Sinai manifest with thy existence
Dil Ko Baigana’ay Andaz-e-Kalisayi Kar
Let the Harem be built with every speck of thy dust
Make the heart alien to the ways of the Church
Naz Bhi Kar To Ba Andaza-e-Raanayi Kar
It is not good to exceed limits in this garden
If thou showeth elegance make its show with grace
Phir Jahan Mein Hawas-e-Shoukat-e-Darayi Kar
First become self‐respecting like Alexander.
Then make the show of desire of Dara’s grandeur
Koi Din Aur Abhi Baad Ye Pemayi Kar
You will reach the destination of Layla one day, O Iqbal
For some more days continue wandering in the wilderness
