(Bal-e-Jibril-086) Khudi Ki Khalwaton Mein Gum Raha Main

Khudi Ki Khalwaton Mein Gum Raha Main
Khuda Ke Samne Goya Na Tha Main

I was in the solitude of Selfhood lost,
And was, it seemed, unaware of the Presence;

Na Dekha Ankh Utha Kar Jalwa-e-Dost
Qayamat Mein Tamasha Ban Gya Main!

I lifted not my eyes to see my Friend,
And, on the Day of Judgment, shamed myself.


  1. I am sorry to say but translation is not very correct. selection of English word is not correct (Example Jalwaye-dost is simply translated into just Friend).
