Na Raha Zinda-o-Painda To Kya Dil Ki Kushood!
The bass and treble of minstrelʹs song much joy to human heart imparts:
What is the use of pleasure that is eʹer on wings and soon departs?
Jis Ki Garmi Se Pighal Jaye Sitaron Ka Wujood
That melodious song is still unborn and is concealed in heavenʹs breast,
Whose intense heat may transform the solid stars to liquid form.
Aur Paida Ho Ayazi Se Maqam-e-Mehmood
A song that may have such results which set men free from grief and pain,
And makes Ayaz break slavish and learn like kings to rule and reign.
Tu Rahe Aur Tera Zamzama-e-La-Mujood
Perplexing maze of moon and stars may flop down, leave their course:
O God, you shall last and the cry "God is Great," uttered with much force.
Muntazir Hai Kisi Mutarib Ka Abhi Tak Woh Surood!
The song that jurists of the self Deem lawful in their mystic creed,
Has been expecting since a long a bard, who can acquit indeed.
