Bara ishq ishq tu karna ayen by Waris Shah

Bara ishq ishq tu karna ayen by Waris Shah is a rich poem on the topic of love and purity of human emotions in the line of Bulleh Shah’s Jhalya Ishq Kamana Okha. Waris Shah attempts to carve out a picture of pure love; the love that tortures and bruises our bodies while deriving comforts for our souls. The ‘ishq’ he refers to is the selfless love for the focus of our attention, the beloved. He begins by reminding us that mere repetitive uttering of love is considered nothing in love. He rather advises us to solve the riddle of love. Once we bent on understanding pure love, it takes everything from us to make us anew from within.

Bara ishq ishq tu karna ayen,  kadi ishq da gunjal khol te sai

Bara ishq ishq tu karna ayen,
kadi ishq da gunjal khol te sai

Roman Urdu of the Poem Bara ishq ishq tu karna ayen by Waris Shah

Bara ishq ishq tu karna ayen,
Kadi ishq da gunjal khol te sai,
Tenun miti de wich na rol deway,
Do pyar de bol bol te sai,
Sukh ghat te dard hazar milan,
Kadi ishq nu takri tol te sai,
Teri hasdi akh wi pij jawy,
Kadi sanun andron phol te sai
