Jab Ishq Sikhata Hai Adab-e-Khud Agaahi

Jab Ishq Sikhata Hai Adab-e-Khud Agaahi

Jab Ishq Sikhata Hai Adab-e-Khud Agaahi
Khule Hain Ghulamon Par Asrar-e-Shehanshahi

When through the Love man conscious grows of respect self‐awareness needs,
Though in chains, he learns at once the regal mode and kingly deeds.

Attar Ho, Rumi Ho, Razi Ho, Ghazali Ho
Kuch Hath Nahin Ata Be Aah-e-Sahargahi

Like Rumi, Attar, Ghazzali and Razi, One may be mystic great or wise,
But none can reach his goal and aim without the help of morning sighs.

Naumeed Na Ho In Se Ae Rahbar-e-Farzana
Kamkosh To Hain Lekin Be-Zauq Nahin Raahi

No need for leaders sage and great to lose all hope of Muslim true:
Though amiss this pilgrim be, Yet can burn on fire like rue.

Ae Tair-e-Lahooti! Uss Rizq Se Mout Achi
Jis Rizq Se Ati Ho Parwaz Mein Kotahi

O Bird, who flies to the Throne of God, You must keep this truth in sight,
To suffer death is nobler far Than bread that clogs your upward flight.

Dara-o-Sikandar Se Woh Mard-e-Faqeer Aula
Ho Jis Ki Faqeeri Mein Boo-e-Asadullahi

A person poor and destitute, Who walks in steps of God’s Lion bold,
Is more exalt’d than monarchs great: He spurns the worldly wealth and gold.

Aaeen-e-Jawanmardan, Haq Goyi-o-Bebaki
Allah Ke Sheron Ko Ati Nahin Roobahi

Men bold and firm uphold the truth and let no fears assail their hearts:
No doubt, the mighty Lions of God Know no tricks and know no arts.
