(Zarb-e-Kaleem-189) Kya Charkh-e-Kaj Ro, Kya Mehar, Kya Mah ((کیا چرخ کج رو ، کیا مہر، کیا ماہ)) This wily heaven, the moon and the sun

(4)

Kya Charkh-e-Kajro, Kya Meher, Kya Mah
Sub Rahru Hain Wa Manda-e-Rah

This wily heaven, the moon and the sun
Are all moving, fatigued and exhausted.

Karka Sikandar Bijli Ki Manind
Tujh Ko Khabar Hai Ae Marg-e-Nagah

Like a lightning Alexander struck,
But met a sudden death!

Nadir Ne Looti Dilli Ki Doulat
Ek Zarb-e-Shamsheer,  Afsana Kotah

Nadir plundered Delhi’s wealth:
Mere sword’s display and that’s all.

Afghan Baqi, Kuhsar Baqi
Alhukmu Lillah! Almulku Lillah!

Afghans remain and so are the mountains:
Sovereignty and kingdom are only God’s.

Hajat Se Majboor Mardan-e-Azad
Karti Hai Hajat Sheron Ko Rubah

Need (dependency), makes free men into servitors,
Need, changes lions into foxes.

Mehram Khudi Se Jis Dam Huwa Faqr
Tu Bhi Shehenshah, Mein Bhi Shehenshah

When faqr gains khudi,
You become a king as well as I.

Qoumon Ki Taqdeer Woh Mard-e-Darvaish
Jis Ne Na Dhoondi Sultan Ki Dargah

The destiny of nations depends on a dervish
Who does not covet (wish) the favor of kings.
