Mushkil Nahin Ae Salik-e-Rah! Ilm-e-Faqeeri
The story of man is a witness to the truth:
O wayfarer! The way of faqr is not difficult.
Paida Ho Agar Iss Ki Tabiat Mein Harairi
Steel that develops the character of silk
Ceases to be suitable for the sword.
Ho Sahib-e-Ghairat To Hai Tamheed-e-Ameeri
When faqr is not self‐reliant, it becomes God’s wrath,
When it is self‐reliant, it is forerunner of kingship.
Ae Banda-e-Momin! Tu Basheeri, Tu Nazeeri !
The Franks have made you forgetful of yourself,
Otherwise, O believer, you are a warner and bearer of tidings.
