Kuch Aur Cheez Hai Shaid Teri Musalmani
Teri Nigah Mein Hai Aik, Faqr-o-Ruhbani
Perhaps your faith is so much quaint and queer,
For faqr and monkery same to you appear.
Sukoon Prasti-e-Rahab Se Faqr Hai Bezar
Faqeeh Ka Hai Safina Humasha Toofani
Faqr has a loathing great for monkish ease;
Its boat is ever tossed by stormy seas.
Pasand Rooh-o-Badan Ki Hai Wa Namood Iss Ko
Ke Hai Nihayat-e-Momin Khudi Ki Uryani
He yearns to put to test his frame and soul,
Display of self is his main aim and goal.
Wujood Saer Fee Kainat Hai Uss Ka
Usse Khabar Hai, Ye Baq Hai Aur Woh Fani
Its life like touchstone acts for Cosmos vast:
It knows what will perish and what will last.
Issi Se Puch Ke Paish-e-Nigah Hai Jo Kuch
Jahan Hai Ya Ke Faqt Rang-o-Boo Ki Tughyani
Ask it if things on which your eyes are bent,
Are real or merely riot of hue and scent!
Ye Faqr Mard-e-Musalman Ne Koh Diya Jab Se
Rahi Na Doulat-e-Salmani-o-Sulemani
Since Muslim true of faqr has been bereft,
No Salmanʹs Faith or Solomonʹs awe are left.
