Aflaak Munnawar Hon Tere Noor-e-Sehar Se
If you behold the world with gaze much bright,
Of you the sky may beg morning light.
Zahir Teri Taqdeer Ho Seemaye Qamar Se
The sun may beg light from gleam of your spark
Your Luck may shine, from moonʹs brow, mark!
Sharminda Ho Fitrat Tere Ejaz-e-Hunar Se
The sea may swell with lustrous waves of gems,
Put world to shame with art that from you stems.
Kya Tujh Ko Nahin Apni Khudi Tak Bhi Rasai?
You beg and borrow thoughts of othersʹ brains,
Find approach to self, donʹt take much pains!
