(Bang-e-Dra-130) Muhasra'ay Adarna (THE SIEGE OF ADRIANOPLE)

Mahasra-e-Adarna
The Siege Of Adrianople

Yourap Mein Jis Ghari Haq-o-Batil Ki Chir Gyi
Haq Khanjar Aazmai Pe Majboor Ho Gya

When the struggle between Truth and falsehood began in Europe
The Truth was compelled on wielding the dagger

Gard-e-Saleeb, Gard-e-Qamar Halqa Zan Huwi
Shikri Hisar-e-Darna Mein Mehsoor Ho Gya

The dust of the Cross circled round the Crescent
Shakree became besieged in the fortress of Adrianople

Muslim Sipahiyon Ke Zakheere Huwe Tamam
Rooye Umeed Aankh Se Mastoor Ho Gya

Provisions of Muslim soldiers became exhausted
The face of hope from the eye became concealed

Akhir Ameer-e-Askar-e-Turkey Ke Hukm Se
‘Aaeen-e-Jang’ Sheher Ka Dastoor Ho Gya

At last by the Turkish army commander’s orders
“Martial Law” was proclaimed the law of the city

Har Shay Huwi Zakheera-e-Lashkar Mein Muntaqil
Shaheen Gadaye Dana-e-Usfoor Ho Gya

Everything was transferred to the army camp’s store
The eagle became beggar for the grain of the sparrow

Lekin Faqeeh-e-Sheher Ne Jis Dam Suni Ye Baat
Garma Ke Misl-e-Saeeqa-e-Toor Ho Gya

But when the Faqih of the city heard this news
He exploded with anger like the thunderbolt of Tur

‘Zimmi Ka Maal Lashkar-e-Muslim Pe Hai Haraam’
Fatwa Tamam Sheher Mein Mashoor Ho Gya

“Dhimmi’s” wealth is forbidden for the Muslim army”
This edict was published throughout the whole city

Chhuti Na Thi Yahood-o-Nasara Ka Maal Fouj
Muslim, Khuda Ke Hukm Se Majboor Ho Gya

The army would not touch the Jews’ and Christians’ wealth
The Muslim became compelled by the Command of God!
