Why do you remain annoyed with the Muslims that are loyal and faithful?

Tuj ko chora ke rasool e arbi ko chora,
but gari pesha kia but shikni ko chora

Aag takbeeron ki seenon main dabi rakhtay hain, zindgi misl e bilal habshi rakhtay hain

Aag takbeeron ki seenon main dabi rakhtay hain,
zindgi misl e bilal habshi rakhtay hain

We keep the fire of takbeer alight in our hearts,
We are following the path lead by Hazrat Bilal e Habshi (R.A).

Ishq ki kher wo pehli si ada bhi na sahi, jada pemai tasleem o raza bhi na sahi

Ishq ki kher wo pehli si ada bhi na sahi,
jada pemai tasleem o raza bhi na sahi

English Translation of sixty third verse of the epic Urdu poem Shikwa by Dr. Allama Muhammad Iqbal:

Admittedly, our love may not have that earlier depth,
The acceptance and agreeing in love may no longer be there.

Muztarib dil sift e qibla numa bhi na sahi, aur pabandi e ain e wafa bhi na sahi

Muztarib dil sift e qibla numa bhi na sahi,
aur pabandi e ain e wafa bhi na sahi

And we may not be as faithful as ever.

Kabhi ham se kabhi gherson se shanasai hy,
bat kehnay ki nahi tu bhi to harjayee hy

Your love keeps shifting between us and the others,
This we must not say but you are also not showing your favours on us, Muslims, alone.

Sar e faran pe kia den ko kamil tu ne,
ik isharay main hazaron ke liye dil tu ne

You took the hearts of thousands in a single Divine gesture.
