(Zarb-e-Kaleem-108) Adabiat Fanoon-e-Latifa - Deen-o-Hunar

Adabiat
Funoon-e-Latifa


Literature And Fine Arts

Deen-o-Hunar
Religion And Crafts

Surood-o-Shair-o-Siasat, Kitab-o-Deen-o-Hunar
Guhar Hain Un Ki Girah Mein Tamam Yakdana

Music, religion, politics, knowledge, art
Have all in their possession matchless pearls.

Zameer-e-Banda-e-Khaki Se Hai Namood Un Ki
Buland Tar Hai Sitaron Se Un Ka Kashana

They emanate from the mind of a creature made of dust,
But higher than the stars is their abode.

Agar Khudi Ki Hifazat Karain To Aen-e-Hayat
Na Kar Sakain To Sarapa Fusoon-o-Afsana

If they protect the ego, they are life itself;
If they cannot, they are mere magic and false tales.

Huwi Hai Zair-e-Falak Ummaton Ki Ruswayi
Khdui Se Jab Adab-o-Deen Huwe Hain Begana

People have come to grief under the sky
Whenever their religion and their literature have been divorced from egohood.
