(Zarb-e-Kaleem-149) Zabt


Tareeq-e-Ahl-e-Dunya Hai Gila Shikwah Zamane Ka
Nahin Hai Zakham Kha Kar Aah Karna Shaan-e-Darveshi

It is the mode of worldly men against the world to whine and groan;
It does not suit a dervish true, By Fate‐inflicted wounds to moan.

Ye Nukta-e-Peer-e-Dana Ne Mujhe Halwat Mein Samjhaya
Ke Hai Zabt-e-Faghan Sheri, Afghan Rubahi-o-Maishi!

The wise old man explained to me, This subtle point in closet alone:
That control on self daring shows, Whereas plaints breed more guile and groan.
