Jalwa-e-Husn – The Manifestation Of Beauty

Jalwa-e-Husn

Jalwa-e-Husn Ke Hai Jis Se Tamanna Be-Taab
Palta Hai Jise Aghosh-e-Takhiyyul Mein Shabab

Beauty’s manifestation which gives restlessness to Longing
Which youth nurtures in its fancy’s lap

Abdi Banta Hai Ye Alam-e-Fani Jis Se
Aik Afsana-e-Rangeen Hai Jawani Jis Se

By which this ephemeral universe becomes eternal
By which youth becomes a colorful tale

Jo Sikhata Hai Humain Sar Ba Gireban Hona
Manzar-e-Alam-e-Hazir Se Gurezan Hona

Which teaches us to be meditating
To be escaping the present state’s scene

Door Ho Jati Hai Adraak Ki Khaami Jis Se
Aqal Karti Hai Taasar Ki Ghulami Jis Se

Which removes the immaturity of perceptions
Which makes Intellect a slave to impressions

Aah! Moujood Bhi Woh Husn Kahin Hai Ke Nahin
Khatam-e-Dehr Mein Ya Rab Woh Nageen Hai Ke Nahin

Ah! Does that Beauty exist anywhere or not?
O Lord! Does that jewel exist on the universe’s ring?
