Tu Ne Puchi Hai Imamat Ki Haqeeqat Mujh Se
Haq Tujhe Meri Tarah Sahib-e-Asrar Kare
What Guidance signifies you wish to know,
Insight, like me, may God on you bestow!
Hai Wohi Tere Zamane Ka Imam-e-Barhaq
Jo Tujhe Hazir-o-Mojood Se Bezar Kare
He is true guide and teacher of your age,
Who can with present fill your mind with rage.
Mout Ke Aaeene Mein Tujh Ko Dikha Kar Rukh-e-Dost
Zindagi Tere Liye Aur Bhi Dushwar Kare
By showing the face of Friend in looking glass,
May make your life more onerous and crass.
De Ke Ehsas-e-Zayan Tera Lahoo Garma De
Faqr Ki Saan Charha Kar Tujhe Talwar Kare
He may make your blood seethe with sense of harm
And on faqr’s whetstone may to sword transform.
Fitna-e-Millat-e-Baiza Hai Imamat Uss Ki
Jo Musalman Ko Salateen Ka Prestar Kare!
Such guidance means revolt ’against Lustrous Creed
That makes the Muslims bow to kingly breed.
