(Zarb-e-Kaleem-130) Khaqani

Khaqani

Woh Sahib-e-‘Tohfa-Tul-Araqeen’
Arbab-e-Nazar Ka Qurratulain

Khaqani, the author of 'Tuhfatularaqain',
Is dear to those who truths can scan.

Hai Parda Shagaf Uss Ka Idaak
Parde Hein Tamam Chaak Dar Chaak

His wisdom is so sharp and keen,
From truths he can remove the screen.

Khamosh Hai Alam-e-Maani
Kehta Nahin Harf-e-‘Lan Tarani’!

With world of meanings he is free:
They dare not say "you can not see"
.
Puch Iss Se Ye Khaakdan Hai Kya Cheez
Hangama-e-Ae-o-Aan Hai Kya Cheez

Ask him what does this world imply,
Where does the cause or tumults lie?

Woh Mehram-e-Alam-e-Makafar
Ek Baat Mein Keh Gya Hai Sou Baat

He knows the world of requital well,
His maxims with much wisdom swell,

“Khud Buye Cheeneen Jahan Tawan Burd
Kabalees Bamanand-o-Bu-Al-Bashar Murd!”

“Opinion about world you can derive,
Adam dead, Satan still alive!ʺ
