Teri Khudi Se Hai Roshan Tera Hareem-e-Wujood
Hayat Kya Hai, Ussi Ka Suroor-o-Souz-o-Sabat

Your beingʹs sanctum gets from self its inner light:
Save zeal and firm resolve naught can make life eʹer bright.

Buland Tar Mah-o-Parveen Se Hai Ussi Ka Maqam
Ussi Ke Noor Se Paida Hain Tere Zaat-o-Sifat

Its rank is higher than the Pleiades and the moon:
Your essence and its gifts are egoʹs greatest boon.

Harem Tera, Khudi Ghair Ki ! Maaz Allah
Dobara Zinda Na Kar Karobar-e-Laat-o-Manat

God save that alien self seek shelter in your shrine!
The creed of idols shun, Donʹt desecrate house divine.

Yehi Kamal Hai Tamseel Ka Ke Tu Na Rahe
Raha Na Tu To Na Souz-e-Khudi , Na Saaz-e-Hayat

Forgetfulness of self imports the height of art,
But with the loss of self both joy and warmth depart.
