Advice To Slaves
Aik Nukta Ke Ghulamon Ke Liye Hai Ikseer
The wisdom of the East and West
Has taught me something that will prove elixir to slaves:
Hote Hain Pukhta Aqaid Ki Bina Par Tameer
Whether it is religion or philosophy, poverty or kingship –
All take firm beliefs as their base.
Ho Gya Pukhta Aqaid Se Tehi Jis Ka Zameer!
The words that a nation speaks are dead and its actions are futile
If its heart is bereft of firm beliefs.
