Ashna Apni Haqiqat Se Ho Ae Dehqan Zara
Dana Tu, Khaiti Bhi Tu, Baran Bhi Tu, Hasil Bhi Tu
Become somewhat acquainted with your own reality O farmer!
The grain, the cultivation, the rain, as well as the produce you are
Aah, Kis Ki Justujoo Aawara Rakhti Hai Tujhe
Rah Tu, Rahru Bhi Tu, Rahbar Bhi Tu, Manzil Bhi Tu
Ah! Whose search keeps you aimlessly wandering
The path, the traveler, the guide, as well as the destination you are
Kanpta Hai Dil Tera Andesha-e-Toofan Se Kya
Na-Khuda Tu, Beher Tu, Kashti Bhi Tu, Sahil Bhi Tu
Why is your heart trembling with the fear of the storm?
The sailor, the ocean, the boat, as well as the sea‐shore you are
Dekh Aa Kar Kaucha-e-Chaak-e-Greban Mein Kabhi
Qais Tu, Laila Bhi Tu, Sehra Bhi Tu, Mehmil Bhi Tu
Come and look some time in the lane of the torn collars
Qais, Lailah, the wilderness as well as the litter on the camel you are
Waye Nadani Ke Tu Mouhtaj-e-Saqi Ho Gya
Mai Bhi Tu, Meena Bhi Tu, Saqi Bhi Tu, Mehfil Bhi Tu
Woe foolishness! You are in need of the cup-bearer
The wine, the decanter, the cup‐bearer, as well as the assembly you are
Shaola Ban Kar Phoonk De Khashak-e-Ghair Allah Ko
Khof-e-Batil Kya Ke Hai Gharatgar-e-Batil Bhi Tu
Becoming a flame burn down the rubbish of Godlessness
Why are you afraid of the falsehood? The destroyer of falsehood also you are
Be-Khabar! Tu Jouhar-e-Aaeena-e-Ayyam Hai
Tu Zamane Mein Khuda Ka Akhri Pegham Hai
O imprudent one! You are the essence of time’s mirror
The ultimate message of God in the world you are!
