(Zarb-e-Kaleem-112) Paris Ki Masjid

Paris Ki Masjid
Paris Mosque

Meri Nigah Kamal-e-Hunar Ko Kya Dekhe
Ke Haq Se Ye Haram-e-Maghrabi Hai Begana

What should my eyes, but an architect’s  Nimbleness,
See in this shrine of the West? It knows nothing of God.

Haram Nahin Hai, Farangi Karishma Bazon Ne
Tan-e-Haram Mein Chupa Di Hai Rooh-e-Butkhana

 Mosque?—the Frankish illusionists
Have smuggled into the carcass of a shrine, an idol‐hall’s soul!

Ye But-Khuda  Unhi Gharat Garon Ki Hai Tamer
Damishq Hath Se Jin Ke Huwa Hai Weerana

And who built this palace of idols?
The same robbers whose hands have turned Damascus into a desert.
