The Testament Of Tipu Sultan
Laila Bhi Hum-Nasheen Ho To Mehmil Na Kar Qabool
If you traverse the road of love, Donʹt yearn to seek repose or rest:
If Layla be your companion close that litter shun with great contempt.
Sahil Tujhe Atta Ho To Sahil Na Kar Qabool
O streamlet, onward flow and get transformed to torrent strong and deep:
If bank is eʹer on you bestowed, Abstain, flow on with mighty sweep.
Mehfil Gudaz! Garmi-e-Mehfil Na Kar Qabool
Donʹt lose your bearings in this world because with idols it is full:
The assemblage here can cast a spell, disdain, or strings of heart shall pull.
Jo Aqal Ka Ghulam Ho, Woh Dil Na Kar Qabool
Gabriel on Creationʹs Early Morn, a piece of useful counsel gave:
He bade me not accept a heart enchained by mind of man like slave.
Shirkat Mayana-e-Haq-o-Batil Na Kar Qabool
Untruth conceals in various masks but Truth and God are both unique:
There canʹt be pool ʹtwixt good and bad—This fact is known from times antique.
