achchhā hai dil ke saath rahe pāsbān-e-aql

lekin kabhī kabhī ise tanhā bhī chhoḌ de

achchha hai dil ke sath rahe pasban-e-aql

lekin kabhi kabhi ise tanha bhi chhoD de

anokhī vaz.a hai saare zamāne se nirāle haiñ

ye āshiq kaun bastī ke yā-rab rahne vaale haiñ

anokhi waza hai sare zamane se nirale hain

ye aashiq kaun si basti ke ya-rab rahne wale hain

apne man meñ Duub kar surāġh-e-zindagī

agar merā nahīñ bantā na ban apnā to ban

apne man mein Dub kar pa ja suragh-e-zindagi

tu agar mera nahin banta na ban apna to ban

bāġh-e-bahisht se mujhe hukm-e-safar diyā thā kyuuñ

kār-e-jahāñ darāz hai ab mirā intizār kar

Why did you bid me leave from paradise for now

My work is yet unfinished here so you wil have to wait

bagh-e-bahisht se mujhe hukm-e-safar diya tha kyun

kar-e-jahan daraaz hai ab mera intizar kar

Why did you bid me leave from paradise for now

My work is yet unfinished here so you wil have to wait

dil se jo baat nikaltī hai asar rakhtī hai

par nahīñ tāqat-e-parvāz magar rakhtī hai

dil se jo baat nikalti hai asar rakhti hai

par nahin taqat-e-parwaz magar rakhti hai

guzar aql se aage ki ye nuur

charāġh-e-rāh hai manzil nahīñ hai

go beyond knowledge for its illumination

is the lamp to light the way, not the destination

guzar ja aql se aage ki ye nur

charagh-e-rah hai manzil nahin hai

go beyond knowledge for its illumination

is the lamp to light the way, not the destination

hazāroñ saal nargis apnī be-nūrī pe rotī hai

baḌī mushkil se hotā hai chaman meñ dīda-var paidā

hazaron sal nargis apni be-nuri pe roti hai

baDi mushkil se hota hai chaman mein dida-war paida

jis khet se dahqāñ ko mayassar nahīñ rozī

us khet ke har ḳhosha-e-gandum ko jalā do

jis khet se dahqan ko mayassar nahin rozi

us khet ke har KHosha-e-gandum ko jala do

ḳhudī ko kar buland itnā ki har taqdīr se pahle

ḳhudā bande se ḳhud pūchhe batā terī razā kyā hai

KHudi ko kar buland itna ki har taqdir se pahle

KHuda bande se KHud puchhe bata teri raza kya hai

maanā ki terī diid ke qābil nahīñ huuñ maiñ

merā shauq dekh mirā intizār dekh

agreed I am not worthy of your vision divine

behold my zeal, my passion see how I wait and pine

mana ki teri did ke qabil nahin hun main

tu mera shauq dekh mera intizar dekh

agreed I am not worthy of your vision divine

behold my zeal, my passion see how I wait and pine

maiñ jo sar-ba-sajda huā kabhī to zamīñ se aane lagī sadā

tirā dil to hai sanam-āshnā tujhe kyā milegā namāz meñ

main jo sar-ba-sajda hua kabhi to zamin se aane lagi sada

tera dil to hai sanam-ashna tujhe kya milega namaz mein

na pūchho mujh se lazzat ḳhānamāñ-barbād rahne

nasheman saikḌoñ maiñ ne banā kar phūñk Daale haiñ

na puchho mujh se lazzat KHanaman-barbaad rahne ki

nasheman saikDon main ne bana kar phunk Dale hain

nasha pilā ke girānā to sab ko aatā hai

mazā to tab hai ki girtoñ ko thaam le saaqī

nasha pila ke girana to sab ko aata hai

maza to tab hai ki girton ko tham le saqi

tire ishq intihā chāhtā huuñ

mirī sādgī dekh kyā chāhtā huuñ

tere ishq ki intiha chahta hun

meri sadgi dekh kya chahta hun

ne ye kyā ġhazab kiyā mujh ko bhī faash kar diyā

maiñ to ek raaz thā sīna-e-kā.enāt meñ

tu ne ye kya ghazab kiya mujh ko bhi fash kar diya

main hi to ek raaz tha sina-e-kaenat mein

shāhīñ hai parvāz hai kaam terā

tire sāmne āsmāñ aur bhī haiñ

tu shahin hai parwaz hai kaam tera

tere samne aasman aur bhi hain
