by hijabana sooye mehfil mabaz aye

They are enjoying the song of cuckoo bird.

tery deewany bhi hain muntazir e hoo bethy

We, the Muslims, sit far from this noise,
We are waiting for your attention.

Let your lightning strike on our hearts for enlightening us.

The desire of flight got the Nightingale upon the wings of its yearning.
