(Zarb-e-Kaleem-065) Ishaat-e-Islam Farangistan Mein

Ishaat-e-Islam Farangistan Mein
Preaching Of Islam In The West

Zameer Iss Madniyat Ka Deen Se Hai Khali
Farangiyon Mein Akhuwat Ka Hai Nasab Pe Qayam

Through all the Western politeia Religion withers to the roots;
For the white man, ties of blood and race are all he knows of brotherhood—

Buland Tar Nahin Angraiz Ki Nigahon Mein
Qabool-e-Deen-e-Mesihi Se Barhaman Ka Maqam

A Brahmin, in Britannia’s sight, Ascends no higher in life’s scale
Because the creed of the Messiah has numbered him with its recruits;

Agar Qabool Kare, Deen-e-Mustafa (S.A.W.), Angraiz
Sayah Roz Musalman Rahe Ga Phir Bhi Ghulam

All Britain one day might embrace Muhammad’s doctrine, if she would,
And yet the Mohammedan, luckless wight, Be left as now beyond the pale.
