(Zarb-e-Kaleem-163) Ghulamon Ke Liye

Ghulamon Ke Liye
Advice To Slaves

Hikmat-E-Mashriq-O-Maghrib Ne Sikhaya Hai Mujhe
Aik Nukta Ke Ghulamon Ke Liye Hai Ikseer

The wisdom of the East and West 
Has taught me something that will prove elixir to slaves:

Deen Ho, Falsafa Ho, Faqr Ho, Sultani Ho
Hote Hain Pukhta Aqaid Ki Bina Par Tameer

Whether it is religion or philosophy, poverty or kingship –
All take firm beliefs as their base.

Harf Uss Qoum Ka Be-Souz, Amal Zaar-o-Zuboon
Ho Gya Pukhta Aqaid Se Tehi Jis Ka Zameer!

The words that a nation speaks are dead and its actions are futile 
If its heart is bereft of firm beliefs.
