(Zarb-e-Kaleem-136) Surood-e-Hilal

Lawful Music

Khul To Jata Hai Mughanni Ke Bam-o-Zeer Se Dil
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?

Hai Abhi Seena-e-Aflak Mein Oinhan Wo Nawa
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.

Jis Taseer Se Adam Ho Gham-o-Khof Se Pak
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.

Mah-o-Anjum Ka Ye Hairat Kadah Baqi Na Rahe
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.

Jis Ko Mashroo Samjhte Hain Faqeehan-e-Khudi
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.

  1. The title should have been Surood-e-Halal. I hope the error will be corrected. Thank you.
