NO GOD BUT ALLAH
Khudi Hai Taeg, Fasan La Ilaha Illallah
The secret of the self is hid, In words "No god but He alone."
The self is just a dull-edged sword, "No god but He," the grinding stone.
Sanam Kudah Hai Jahan, La Ilaha Illallah
An Abraham by the age is sought to break the idols of this Hall:
The avowal of God's Oneness can make all these idols headlong fall.
Faraib Sood-o-Zayan, La Ilaha Illallah
A bargain you have struck for goods of life, a step, that smacks conceit,
All save the call "No god but He," is merely fraught with fraud and deceit.
Butan-e-Weham-o-Guman, La Ilaha Illallah
The worldly wealth and riches too, ties of blood and friends a dream
The idols wrought by doubts untrue, all save God's Oneness empty seem.
Na Hai Zaman Na Makan, La Ilaha Illallah
The mind has worn the holy thread of Time and Space like pagans all
Though Time and Space both illusive "No god but He" is true withal.
Bahar Ho Ke Khazan, La Ilaha Illallah
These melodious songs are not confined to time when rose and tulip bloom
Whatever the season of year be "No god but He" must ring till doom.
Mujhe Hai Hukm-e-Azan, La Ilaha Illallah
Many idols are still concealed in their sleeves by the Faithful Fold,
I am ordained by Almighty Allah to raise the call and be much bold.
