(Zarb-e-Kaleem-195) Wohi Jawan Hai Qabile Ki Ankh Ka Tara

(10)

Wohi Jawan Hai Qabeele Ki Ankh Ka Tara
Shabaab Jis Ka Hai Be-Dagh, Zarb Hai Kari

That young man is the light of the eye of the tribe,
Whose youth is without blemish, and blow is deadly.

Agar Ho Jang To Sheran-e-Ghab Se Barh Kar
Agar Ho Sulah To Raana Ghazaal-e-Tatari

In battles he is fiercer than wild lions,
In peace, he is like a beautiful Tartar gazelle.

Ajab Nahin Hai Agar Iss Ka Souz Hai Hama Souz
Ke Neestan Ke Liye Bas Hai Aik Chingari

Nothing strange if his ecstasy is contagious,
A single spark is enough for a garden.

Khuda Ne Iss Ko Diya Hai Shikoh-e-Sultani
Ke Iss Ke Faqr Mein Hai Haidari-o-Karrari

God has given him kingly pomp
For his faqr has impetuosity and valour like Ali’s.

Nigah-e-Kam Se Na Dekh Iss Ki Be Kulahi Ko
Ye Be-Kulah Hai Sarmaya-e-Kulah-Dari

Don’t look down upon his poverty:
This poor man has pride of place among us all.
