Literature And Fine Arts
Religion And Crafts
Guhar Hain Un Ki Girah Mein Tamam Yakdana
Music, religion, politics, knowledge, art
Have all in their possession matchless pearls.
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.
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.
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.
