Unity Of God
Tere Damagh Mein Butkhana Ho To Kya Kahiye
The subtle point in Godʹs Oneness hid with ease in words we can explain;
But what about your mind unsound that brims with myths and idols vain?
Tareeq-e-Sheikh Faqeeh Na Ho To Kya Kahiye
The Elder of the Shrine has traits that smack of juristʹs faith and creed:
Much thirst for view ‘No god but He,’ among his fellows cannot breed.
Tu Harb-o-Zarb Se Begana Ho To Kya Kahiye
None can appraise the glee one gets, when war is on ’twixt good and bad:
He who canʹt inflict deadly blows and strokes in war is never glad.
Teri Nigah Ghulamana Ho To Kya Kahiye
Observations made by free born men in world with marvels so replete;
To those who own the glance of thralls none can such wonders ʹfore them repeat.
Rawish Kisi Ki Gadayana Ho To Kya Kahiye!
A dervish holds a loftier rank than a monarch who wears a crown;
There is no cure for such a man, who, like paupers, has sunk down.
