Hazar Khof Ho Lekin Zuban Ho Dil Ki Rafeeq

Hazar Khof Ho Lekin Zuban Ho Dil Ki Rafeeq

Hazar Khof Ho Lekin Zuban Ho Dil Ki Rafeeq
Yehi Raha Hai Azal Se Qalanderon La Tareeq

A host of peril (danger) though you face, Yet your tongue with heart ally,
From times antique and eternity, Qalandars on this mode rely.

Hajoom Kyun Hai Zaida Sharab Khane Mein
Faqat Ye Baat Ke Peer-e-Mughan Hai Mard-e-Takhleeq

Men congregate in numbers large In the mart where wine is sold,
For polite and courteous seems The Head of Mart, the Magian Old.

Ilaj-e-Zu’af-e-Yaqeen In Se Ho Nahin Sakta
Gareeb Agarcha Hain Razi Ke Nukta Ha’ay Daqeeq

Yet against infirm belief, No cure in them is ever found,
Though the points by Razi touched May be subtle and profound.

Mureed Sada Tou Ro Ro Ke Ho Gaya Ta’eb
Khuda Kare Ke Mile Sheikh Ko Bhi Ye Toufeeq

The disciple blind shed copious tears, Of sinful life he felt contrite,
May God aid the shaykh as well, To feel ashamed and do the right!

Ussi Talism-e-Kuhan Mein Aseer Hai Adam
Baghal Mein Uss Ki Hain Ab Tak Butan-e-Ehad-e-Ateeq

Man is bound still hand and foot, In chains by this talisman old,
For idols of the age of past, Still men within their armpits hold.

Mere Liye Tou Hai Iqrar-e-Bil-Lisan Bhi Bohat
Hazar Shukar Ke Mullah Hain Sahib-e-Tasdeeq

Enough for me that I affirm, With tongue alone my faith and creed,
A thousand thanks for mullah’s claim, That he with heart avows, indeed.

Agar Ho Ishq Tou Hai Kuffar Bhi Musalmani
Na Ho Tou Mard-e-Musalman Bhi Kafir-o-Zandeeq

As good as Muslim’s true belief, If blessed with Love, unfaith is eke,
Bereft of Love a Muslim true, Is no better than Zindiq.
