(Zarb-e-Kaleem-029) Tasawwuf


Ye Hikmat-e-Malkooti, Ye Ilm-e-Lahooti
Haram Ke Dard Ka Darman Nahin To Kuch Bhi Nahin

If angelic art and celestial lore the ills of Muslims can not cure,
Worthless they are and of no use, of fact so true you must be sure.
Ye Zikr-e-Neem Shabi, Ye Marakabe, Ye Suroor
Teri Khudi Ke Nigheban Nahin To Kuch Bhi Nahin

Your reveries deep and rapture sweet, Your worship at the midst of night,
If fail to keep a watch on self, Are useless quite and have value slight.

Ye Aqal Jo Mah-o-Parveen Ka Khailti Hai Shakar
Shareek-e-Shourish-e-Pinhan Nahin To Kuch Bhi Nahin

The intellect can cast its noose on the Pleiades and the Moon;
If heart is bʹreft of love for God, It is not a worthy gift and boon.

Khirad Ne Keh Bhi Diya ‘La Ilaha’ To Kya Hasil
Dil-o-Nigah Musalman Nahin To Kuch Bhi Nahin

If wit incites a man to say ʺNo God but Heʺ it brings no gain:
It. has no worth at all I think, Unless affirmed by heart and brain.

Ajab Nahin Ke Preshan Hai Guftugoo Meri
Farogh-e-Subah Preshan Nahin To Kuch Bhi Nahin

No wonder great that my discourse with distraction unbound is fraught:
If it wonʹt spread like rays of morn, It means such talk has value naught!

  3. Your life is as lonely as u would like to make it,
    Your joy is as much as u decide to feel it,
    Your night is as long as u decide to stay awake,
    Your destination is as far as you decide to walk, No one sets the limits 4 u,
    No one can catch the span of sky ur sky is as much as u want to reach, All u need is a +ve approach in your decisions,
    Spread ur wings and decide to fly,
    Life is wondrful if u know how to live it.

  9. Jis nay yea English ma translation ki ha usy jotay marnay chaye bilkul ghalt ki ha koi alfaz ni milty us nu jo khirad ny kah bhi la illah ki jo English ma translate kia ha wo hi check kr len bilkul ghalt kia ha

    1. I don't see any problem with English translation at all! No not at all! So I don't see any reason why you are whining like that... and that part that you mentioned "Khirad Ne Keh Bhi Diya ‘La Ilaha’ To Kya Hasil" ... it translation in English is to the perfection.
