Politics Of The East And The West
Be Sood Nahin Roos Ki Ye Garmi-e-Raftar
From wont and ways of nations all these facts so clear with ease I learn,
The Russians seem to be in haste to gain the goal for which they yearn.
Farsooda Tareeqon Se Zamana Huwa Bezar
The world is red tip with the modes that arenʹt in vogue and are outworn;
My intellect, that was tame and mild much pert and insolent has grown.
Khule Nazar Aate Hain Batadreej Woh Asrar
These mysteries which the greed of man had kept in veils of stuff so coarse
Are step by step emerging now and coming forth by dint of force.
Allah Kare Tujh Ko Atta Jiddat-e-Kirdar
O Muslim, dive deep in the Book,Which was revealed to Prophetsʹ Seal;
May God, by grace on you bestow politeness, for good deeds much zeal!
Iss Dour Mein Shaid Woh Haqiqat Ho Namoodar!
The fact concealed in words so far, "Spend what is surplus and is spare,"
May come to light in modern age and make the meanings clear and bare.
