(Zarb-e-Kaleem-057) Nabuwwat

Nabuwwat
Prophethood

Main Na Arif, Na Mujaddid, Na Muhaddis, Na Faqeeh
Mujh Ko Maloom Nahin Kya Hai Nabuwwat Ka Maqam

A gnostic, revivalist, jurist or expert in Prophetʹs maxims I do not claim:
As such a prophetʹs rank and state in terms precise I canʹt proclaim.

Haan, Magar Alam-e-Islam Pe Rakhta Hun Nazar
Fash Hai Mujh Pe Zameer-e-Falak-e-Neeli Faam

Despite these things I always keep on Muslim lands my watchful eye:
To me are known the secrets hid in depths of this azure sky.

Asar-e-Hazir Ki Shab-e-Taar Mein Dekhi Main Ne
Ye Haqeeqat Ke Hai Roshan Sifat-e-Mah-e-Tamam

In present age, so full of dusk I have beheld this fact so stark
That peeps like bright and full grown moon from sky that wears the mantle dark.

“Woh Nabuwwat Hai Musalman Ke Liye Barg-e-Hasheesh
Jis Nabuwwat Mein Nahin Quwwat-o-Shoukat Ka Payam”

The seer, inspired by God, who fails to prompt to deeds of might and main,
Is just akin to leaf of hemp that makes oblivious to loss or gain.
