Rumi Badle, Shaami Badle, Badla Hindustan
Tu Bhi Ae Farzand-e-Kuhastan! Apni Khudi Pehchan

People of Rome and Syria have changed and so have those of India;
You, the son of mountains! Learn to know your khudi.

Apni Khudi Pehchan
O Ghafil Afghan!

Learn to know your khudi,
O careless Afghan!

Mousam Acha, Pani Wafir, Mitti Bhi Zarkhiaz
Jis Ne Apna Khait Na Seencha, Woh Kaisa Dehqan

Weather is favourable, water plenty and soil fertile,
He is no true farmer if he does not work in the fields.

Apni Khudi Pehchan
O Ghafil Afghan!

Learn to know your khudi,
O careless Afghan!

Unchi Jis Ki Lehr Hai, Woh Kaisa Darya
Jis Ki Hawaen Tund Nahin Hain, Woh Kaisa Toofan

If its waves don’t fret and fume, it isn’t river;
If the winds are not violent, it isn’t storm.

Apni Khudi Pehchan
O Ghafil Afghan!

Learn to know your khudi,
O careless Afghan!

Dhoond Ke Apni Khaak Mein Jis Ne Paya Apna Aap
Uss Bande Ki Dehqani Par Sultani Qurban

He who discovers himself in soul after a hard labour,
Is far better than kings and monarchs.

Apni Khudi Pehchan
O Ghafil Afghan!

Learn to know your khudi,
O careless Afghan!

Teri Be-Ilmi Ne Rakh Li Be-Ilmon Ki Laaj
Alim Fazil Baich Rahe Hain Apna Deen Imaan

Your lack of knowledge has saved the honour of all ignorant people;
The learned are bartering away their faith.

Apni Khudi Pehchan
O Ghafil Afghan!

Learn to know your khudi,
O careless Afghan!
