(Zarb-e-Kaleem-194) Ishq Tiniat Mein Firo Maya Nahin Misal-e-Hawas

(9)

Ishq Tiniat Mein Firomaya Nahin Misl-e-Hawas
Par Shahbaz Se Mumkin Nahin Parwaz-e-Magas

Love is not by nature ignoble like lust;
You can’t expect flight of a fly from falcon’s wings.

Yun Bhi Dastoor-e-Gulistan Ko Badal Sakte Hain
Ke Nasheman Ho Anadil Pe Garan Misl-e-Qafas

The way of the garden can be changed thus:
The nightingales should grow sick of their nests like a cage.

Safar Amadah Nahin Muntazir-e-Bang-e-Raheel
Hai Kahan Qafla-e-Mouj Ko Parwaye Jaras!

Those waiting for the bugle‐call are not ready for the journey,

Gharcha Maktab Ka Jawan Zinda Nazar Ata Hai
Murda Hai, Mang Ke Laya Hai Farangi Se Nafas

The pupil in schools looks alive; nay, he is dead;
He had borrowed his breath from the Franks.

Parwerish Dil Ki Agar Mad-e-Nazar Hai Tujh Ko
Mard-e-Momin Ki Nigah-e-Galat Andaz Hai Bas!

If you wish to nourish your heart
You need only the stray look of a man of faith.
