Shamsheer Ki Manind Hai Buranda-o-Barraq
The Truth‐seeking man whose self has awakened
Is like a sword which is cutting and brilliant.
Har Zarre Mein Poshida Hai Jo Quwwat-e-Ashraq
To his keen eye is visible
The power to show what is latent in every atom.
Tu Banda-e-Afaq Hai, Woh Sahib-e-Afaq
To him you cannot be compared:
You are the slave of the heavens while he is their master.
Woh Paki-e-Fitrat Se Huwa Mehram-e-Aamaq
You have not yet developed even a desire for the shore;
He has grasped the secrets of the deep through the purity of his soul.
