(Zarb-e-Kaleem-120) Ahle Hunar Se

Ahl-e-Hunar Se
To The Artists

Mehr-o-Mah-o-Mushtari, Chand Nafs Ka Farogh
Ishq Se Hai Paidar Teri Khudi Ka Wujood

Sun, moon and Jupiter shine their hour;
Your self burns on, fed by Love’s power.

Tere Haram Ka Zameer Aswad-o-Ahmar Se Paak
Tang Hai Tere Liye Surkh-o-Spaid-o-Kubood

Your creed knows nothing of race or hue:
No credit in white or black, or blue!

Teri Khudi Ka Ghayaab Maarka-e-Zikr-o-Fikr
Teri Khudi Ka Huzoor Alam-e-Shair-o-Surood

Where selfhood droops, doubts fight ding‐dong;
Where it blooms—a world of verse and song!

Rooh Agar Hai Teri Ranj-e-Ghulami Se Zaar
Tere Hunar Ka Jahan Dair-o-Tawaf-o-Sujood

If your soul rot under slavery’s blight,
Your art an idolater’s soulless rite;

Aur Agar Bakhabar Apni Sharafat Se Ho
Teri Sipah Ins-o-Jinn, Tu Hai Ameer-e-Junood!

If sense of your own greatness sway you,
Legions of men and Jinn obey you!
