Tan Ba Taqdeer – Zarb-e-Kaleem
Submission To Fate
Issi Quran Mein Hai Ab Tark-e-Jahan Ki Taleem
Jis Ne Momin Ko Banaya Meh-o-Parveen Ka Ameer

Their mode of work has changed entire, Before the freaks of Fate they bow:
They had a say in what God decreed, But Muslims have now fallen low.

In state of bondage, as is known, the shift of conscience is quite sure.
