MORE BY Sheikh Ibrahim Zauq

    laa.ī hayāt aa.e qazā le chalī chale

    apnī ḳhushī na aa.e na apnī ḳhushī chale

    I came as life had brought me, as death takes me I go

    I came not of my own accord nor willingly I go

    ho umr-e-ḳhizr bhī to ho ma.alūm vaqt-e-marg

    ham kyā rahe yahāñ abhī aa.e abhī chale

    Had I lived as long as Khizr, then dying I would say

    where did I stay long enough, I came and went away

    ham se bhī is bisāt pe kam hoñge bad-qimār

    jo chaal ham chale so nihāyat burī chale

    on this chequered board would be few novices like me

    all the moves that I have made were hopeless surely

    behtar to hai yahī ki na duniyā se dil lage

    par kyā kareñ jo kaam na be-dil-lagī chale

    it’s better if the heart is not enmeshed in life, it's true

    what's to be done if without being attached one cannot do?

    lailā naaqa dasht meñ tāsīr-e-ishq se

    sun kar fuġhān-e-qais bajā-e-hudī chale

    in the desert Laila's camel does its zeal display

    Hearing Qais's plaintive cry it ventures forth that way

    nāzāñ na ho ḳhirad pe jo honā hai ho vahī

    dānish tirī na kuchh mirī dānish-varī chale

    what's got to happen, will, don’t pride in your intellect

    your wisdom or my wisdom here, will be of no effect

    duniyā ne kis rāh-e-fanā meñ diyā hai saath

    tum bhī chale chalo yūñhī jab tak chalī chale

    jaate havā-e-shauq meñ haiñ is chaman se 'zauq'

    apnī balā se bād-e-sabā ab kabhī chale

    lai hayat aae qaza le chali chale

    apni KHushi na aae na apni KHushi chale

    I came as life had brought me, as death takes me I go

    I came not of my own accord nor willingly I go

    ho umr-e-KHizr bhi to ho malum waqt-e-marg

    hum kya rahe yahan abhi aae abhi chale

    Had I lived as long as Khizr, then dying I would say

    where did I stay long enough, I came and went away

    hum se bhi is bisat pe kam honge bad-qimar

    jo chaal hum chale so nihayat buri chale

    on this chequered board would be few novices like me

    all the moves that I have made were hopeless surely

    behtar to hai yahi ki na duniya se dil lage

    par kya karen jo kaam na be-dil-lagi chale

    it’s better if the heart is not enmeshed in life, it's true

    what's to be done if without being attached one cannot do?

    laila ka naqa dasht mein tasir-e-ishq se

    sun kar fughan-e-qais baja-e-hudi chale

    in the desert Laila's camel does its zeal display

    Hearing Qais's plaintive cry it ventures forth that way

    nazan na ho KHirad pe jo hona hai ho wahi

    danish teri na kuchh meri danish-wari chale

    what's got to happen, will, don’t pride in your intellect

    your wisdom or my wisdom here, will be of no effect

    duniya ne kis ka rah-e-fana mein diya hai sath

    tum bhi chale chalo yunhi jab tak chali chale

    jate hawa-e-shauq mein hain is chaman se 'zauq'

    apni bala se baad-e-saba ab kabhi chale
