Ta’an e aghyar hy ruswaye hy nadari hy, kya tery naam py marnay ka awaz khwari hy

Ta’an e aghyar hy ruswaye hy nadari hy,
kya tery naam py marnay ka awaz khwari hy

Bani aghyar ki ab chahnay wali dunya,
reh gaye apnay liye aik khyali dunya

kahin mumkin hy ke saqi na rahy jam rahy

Teri mehfil bhi gaye chahnay walay bhi gaye, shab ki ahen bhi gayen subeh ke nalay bhi gaye

Teri mehfil bhi gaye chahnay walay bhi gaye,
shab ki ahen bhi gayen subeh ke nalay bhi gaye

So are gone the weeping of the night and complaints of the morrow.

Dil tuj de bhi gaye apna sila le bhi gaye,
aa ke bethay bhi na thay aur nikalay bhi gaye

English Translation of 55th verse of the famous poem Shikwa by Dr. Allama Muhammad Iqbal:

The Muslims were expelled from your gathering very early that they could not even seat.

Aye ashaq gaye wada e farda le kar, ab unhen dhoond chiragh e rukh e zeba le kar

Aye ashaq gaye wada e farda le kar,
ab unhen dhoond chiragh e rukh e zeba le kar

Dard e laila bhi wahi qais ka pehlo bhi wahi, najd ke dasht o jabal main ram e ahu bhi wahi

Dard e laila bhi wahi qais ka pehlo bhi wahi,
najd ke dasht o jabal main ram e ahu bhi wahi

The pain of Laila is still alive, Qais’ passion is stronger yet,
The gazelle goes leaping in the valleys and mountains of Najd.
