Meraj – De Walwla-E-Shuq

Meraj

Meraj
Ascension

De Walwala-e-Shauq Jise Lazzat-e-Parwaz
Kar Sakta Hai Woh Zarra Mah-o-Mehr Ko Taraaj

A mote endowed with strong desire for flight
Can reach the Sun and Moon with effort slight.

Mushkil Nahin Yaraan-e-Chaman! Maarka-e-Baaz
Pursouz Agar Ho Nafs-e-Sina-e-Durraj

If chest of partridge fire and zeal emit,
My friends, in fight with hawk it can acquit.

Nawak Hai Musalman, Hadaf Iss Ka Hai Surreya
Hai Sirr-e-Sara Parda-e-Jaan Nukta-e-Miraaj

Ascension means to gauge a Muslimʹs heart,
The Pleiades are the target of his dart.

Tu Maanni-e-‘Wannajam’ Na Samajha To Ajab Kya
Hai Tera Mad-o-Jazar Abhi Chand Ka Mohtaaj

No wonder, meanings of Najm from you hide,
On Moon depends your oceanʹs ebb and tide.
