Andaz-e-Byan Gharche Bohat Shaukh Nahin Hai
Shaid Ke Utar Jaye Tere Dil Mein Meri Baat
Though I have little of rhetorician’s art,
Maybe these words will sink into your heart.
Ya Wusaat-e-Aflak Mein Takbeer-e-Musalsal
Ya Khak Ke Aghosh Mein Tasbeeh-o-Munajat
A quenchless crying on God through the boundless sky,
A dusty rosary, earth‐bound litany.
Woh Mazhab-e-Mardan-e-Khud Agah-o-Khuda Mast
So worship men self‐knowing, drunk with God,
So worship priest, dead stone, and mindless clod.
