Budhe Baloch Ki Nasihat Baite Ko

Budhe Baloch Ki Nasihat Baite Ko – Armaghan-e-Hijaz

THE ADVICE OF AN OLD BALUCH TO HIS SON

Budhe Baloch Ki Nasihat Baite Ko

Budhe Baloch Ki Nasihat Baite Ko

Ho Tere Bayaban Ki Hawa Tujh Ko Gawara
Iss Dasht Se Behter Hai Na Dilli Na Bukhara

Winds of these wasteland be your love!
Bokhara, Delhi, are worth no more.

Jis Simat Mein Chahe Sifat-e-Seel-e-Rawan Chal
Wadi Ye Humari Hai, Woh Sehra Bhi Humara

Like running water Go where you will:
these desert plains are ours, and Ours are these valleys.

Ghairat Hai Bari Cheez Jahan-e-Tagg-o-Dou Mein
Pehnati Hai Darvesh Ko Taj-e-Sar-E-Dara

Honour, that high thing in a world of troubling (struggle),
Sets on the Saint’s head Darius’ crown

Hasil Kisi Kamil Se Ye Poshida Hunar Kar
Kehte Hain Ke Sheeshe Ko Bana Sakte Hain Khara

Learn from some master, this strange craft
They tell that how glass is forged flint‐hard

Afrad Ke Hathon Mein Hai Aqwam Ki Taqdeer

Budhe Baloch Ki Nasihat Baite Ko

Afrad Ke Hathon Mein Hai Aqwam Ki Taqdeer
Har Fard Hai Millat Ke Muqaddar Ka Sitara

Fortunes of States through individual prowess ripen
Each man one star of their ascendant (Destiny)

Mehroom Raha Doulat-e-Darya Se Woh Ghawwas
Karta Nahin Jo Souhbat-e-Sahil Se Kinara

Ocean withholds her treasure when the diver
Groping for pearl shells Clings by land’s margin.

Deen Hath Se De Kar Agar Azad Ho Millat
Hai Aesi Tajarat Mein Musalman Ka Khasara

To the Muslim freedom gained at the price of casting off religion
Makes an ill bargain!

Dunya Ko Hai Phir Ma’arka-e-Rooh-o-Badan Paish
Tehzeeb Ne Phir Apne Darindon Ko Ubhara

In our world, where once more Civilization Looses its wild beasts,
in one more encounter Spirit and flesh meet;

Taqdeer-e-Umam Kya Hai, Koi Keh Nahin Sakta

Taqdeer-e-Umam Kya Hai, Koi Keh Nahin Sakta

Allah Ko Pa-Mardi-e-Momin Pe Bharosa
Iblees Ko Yourap Ki Machinon Ka Sahara

On the true‐believer’s Manhood God’s trust lies –
The machines of Europe Satan’s alliance.

Taqdeer-e-Umam Kya Hai, Koi Keh Nahin Sakta
Momin Ki Firasat Ho To Kafi Hai Ishara

Who knows the nation’s fates?
But signs abound, If Muslims are wakeful

Ikhlas-e-Amal Mang Nayagan-e-Kuhan Se
‘Shahan Che Ajab Gar Banawazand Gada Ra !’

From your buried fathers ask pride of action;
Do not fear, a king may smile on a beggar.
