(Zarb-e-Kaleem-086) Tarbiat

Tarbiat
Upbringing

Zindagi Kuch Aur Shay Hai, Ilm Hai Kuch Aur Shay
Zindagi Souz-e-Jigar Hai, Ilm Hai Souz-e-Damagh

Existence and knowledge both are poles apart,
Life burns the soul, whereas lore makes it smart.

Ilm Mein Doulat Bhi Hai, Qudrat Bhi Hai, Lazzat Bhi Hai
Aik Mushkil Hai Ke Hath Ata Nahin Apna Suragh

Joy, wealth and power all, to lore are due,
How irksome that to self it yields no clue!

Ahl-e-Danish Aam Hain, Kamyaab Hain Ahl-e-Nazar
Kya Ta’ajjub Hai Ke Khali Reh Gya Tera Ayagh!

No dearth of lettered men, ah few! provide
The bowl with wine of gnosis like true guide.

Sheikh-e-Maktab Ke Tareeqon Se Kushaad-e-Dil Kahan
Kis Tarah Kibriat Se Roshan Hi Bijli Ka Charagh!

The ways of teachers donʹt expand the heart,
Matchstick canʹt light to electric lamp impart.
