Safar Khaki Shabistan Se Na Kar Sakta Agar Dana
It could have never borne fruit and foliage in the space lit up with light,
If from the dark recesses the seed had not moved on:
Payam-e-Mout Hai Jab ‘LA’ Huwa ‘ILLA’ Se Begana
In life we begin with no and end with yes;
When no is divorced from yes it becomes destructive.
Yaqeen Jano, Huwa Labraiz Uss Millat Ka Pemana
A nation which does not pass from no to yes
Is undoubtedly on the brink of death.
