Written On The Occasion Of The British Governmentʹs Permission To Keep Sword
Kya Cheez Hai Foulad Ki Shamsheer-e-Jigar Dar
O Muslim, did you ever think or feel
What is meant by piercing sword of steel?
Poshida Chale Ate Hain Touheed Ke Asrar
It is the first hemistich of this verse
That Godʹs Oneness shows in form so terse.
Allah Kare Tujh Ko Atta Faqr Ki Talwar
My anxiety for the second half is greater though,
May God the sword of faqr on you bestow
Ya Khalid (R.A.) Janbaz Hai Ya Haidar-e-Karar (R.A.)
If Muslim true can get this sword in hold
He is Ali the Lion of God, or Khalid bold.
