Authority And Faith
Sou Bar Huwi Hazrat-e-Insan Ki Qaba Chaak
Autocrats like Alexander and Genghis, Have trampled men beneath their feet,
Not once but hundred times so far, They brought man down from honoured seat.
‘Sahib Nazaran ! Nasha-e-Quwwat Hai Khatarnaak’
The annals right from history’s dawn the message eternal bear as such,
“O man, with insight great endowed, The wine of might is dangerous much.ʺ
Aqal-o-Nazar-o-Ilm-o-Hunar Hain Khs-o-Khashak
Before this quickly flowing flood that spreads to all the tracts with speed:
Art, insight, intellect and science, Are carried along like straw and reed.
Ho Deen Ki Hifazat Mein To Har Zehr Ka Tiryaak
Divorced from faith, a poison strong, When propped by faith and true belief,
’Gainst poison works with speed, And proves a source of much relief.
