Na Tu Zameen Ke Liye Hai Na Aasmaan Ke Liye
Jahaan Hai Tere Liye, Tu Nahin Jahan Ke Liye
You are not for the Earth, nor are you for the heavens
The whole universe is for you; you are not for the universe
Ye Akal-o-Dil Hai Sharar Shola-e-Mohabbat Ke
Wo Khaar-o-Khas Ke Liye Hai, Ye Nestaan Ke Liye
The mind and the heart Are sparks in the flame of love;
One for a moment's world, The other for an everlasting world
Maqaam-e-Parwarish-e-Aah Wa Naala Hai Ye Chaman
Na Sair-e-Gul Ke Liye Hai Na Aashiyaan Ke Liye
This garden is for you to yearn, To seek a beautific vision.
Not for your delight and nor to build your adobe.
Rahega Raavi-o-Neel-o-Faraat Mein Kab Tak?
Tera Safeena Ke Hai Bahr-e-Bekaraan Ke Liye
Till when will you be in the Ravi, Nile and the Tigress?
Your Ship is for the Open Sea of Restlessness.
Nishaan-e-Raah Dikhaate The Jo Sitaron Ko
Taras Gaye Hain Kisi Mard-e-Raahdan Ke Liye
They were a beacon once To the brightest stars of heaven,
But now they languish in darkness, In search of a guide to lead them.
Nigah Buland, Sukhan Dilnawaaz, Jaan Pur Soz
Yahi Hai Rakht-e-Safar Meer-e-Kaarwaan Ke Liye
A lofty vision, Gracious speech, And a passionate soul
These are the attributes Of the leader of Caravan.
Zara Si Baat Thi Andesha-e-Ajam Ne Use
Badha Diya Hai Faqat Zaib-e-Daastaan Ke Liye
It was a small speech; But the because of Non-Arabs' thought,
Made it big just for the sake of a Story
Mere Gulu Mein Hai Ek Nagma-e-Jibraeel Aashob
Sambhal Kar Jise Rakha Hai La Makaan Ke Liye
My soul has a secret song, A defiance to Gabriel
A song I have preserved For life in eternity.
