Arbab-e-Nazar Ka Qurratulain
Khaqani, the author of 'Tuhfatularaqain',
Is dear to those who truths can scan.
Parde Hein Tamam Chaak Dar Chaak
His wisdom is so sharp and keen,
From truths he can remove the screen.
Kehta Nahin Harf-e-‘Lan Tarani’!
With world of meanings he is free:
They dare not say "you can not see"
Hangama-e-Ae-o-Aan Hai Kya Cheez
Ask him what does this world imply,
Where does the cause or tumults lie?
Ek Baat Mein Keh Gya Hai Sou Baat
He knows the world of requital well,
His maxims with much wisdom swell,
Kabalees Bamanand-o-Bu-Al-Bashar Murd!”
“Opinion about world you can derive,
Adam dead, Satan still alive!ʺ
