MORE BY Sheikh Ibrahim Zauq

    ab to ghabrā ke ye kahte haiñ ki mar jā.eñge

    mar ke bhī chain na paayā to kidhar jā.eñge

    being perturbed I now express / the wish to die, although

    e'en in death, no peace is found, then where shall I go?

    tum ne Thahrā.ī agar ġhair ke ghar jaane

    to irāde yahāñ kuchh aur Thahar jā.eñge

    if you are resolved to go / thus to my rival's house

    my cause with greater ardor / I'll surely then espouse

    ḳhālī ai chāragaro hoñge bahut marham-dāñ

    par mire zaḳhm nahīñ aise ki bhar jā.eñge

    healers, all your potions, balms, may now be at an end

    but my wounds are not the sort / that can be ever mend

    pahuñcheñge rahguzar-e-yār talak kyuuñ kar ham

    pahle jab tak na do aalam se guzar jā.eñge

    the path to my beloved's street / how can I ever find

    until I traverse the course / of both the worlds combined

    shola-e-āh ko bijlī tarah chamkā.ūñ

    par mujhe Dar hai ki vo dekh ke Dar jā.eñge

    like lightning I would brighten / the flame that is my sigh

    but then I am afraid that she, in fear, would start to cry

    ham nahīñ vo jo kareñ ḳhuun da.avā tujh par

    balki pūchhegā ḳhudā bhī to mukar jā.eñge

    I'm not one who'll seek to pin / my murder at your side

    in fact I'd deny if God / too asks me how I died

    aag dozaḳh bhī ho jā.egī paanī paanī

    jab ye aasī araq-e-sharm se tar jā.eñge

    even blazing, roaring flames / of hell will then be quenched

    when sinners, in the sweat of shame / go there fully drenched

    nahīñ pā.egā nishāñ koī hamārā hargiz

    ham jahāñ se ravish-e-tīr-e-nazar jā.eñge

    ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔

    ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔

    sāmne chashm-e-guhar-bār ke kah do dariyā

    chaḌh ke gar aa.e to nazroñ se utar jā.eñge

    ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔

    ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔

    laa.e jo mast haiñ turbat pe gulābī āñkheñ

    aur agar kuchh nahīñ do phuul to dhar jā.eñge

    to my grave, she ventures with / rose tinted eyes aglow

    if nothing else, then now at least, two buds she will bestow

    ruḳh-e-raushan se naqāb apne ulaT dekho tum

    mehr-o-māh nazroñ se yāroñ utar jā.eñge

    let now your radiant face unveil, do let it come to light

    the sun and moon will fade away / from everybody's sight

    ham bhī dekheñge koī ahl-e-nazar hai ki nahīñ

    yaañ se jab ham ravish-e-tīr-e-nazar jā.eñge

    'zauq' jo madrase ke bigḌe hue haiñ mullā

    un ko mai-ḳhāne meñ le aao sañvar jā.eñge

    'zauq', misled by madrasas, mullahs have gone astray

    bring them to the tavern, there, they will mend their way

    ab to ghabra ke ye kahte hain ki mar jaenge

    mar ke bhi chain na paya to kidhar jaenge

    being perturbed I now express / the wish to die, although

    e'en in death, no peace is found, then where shall I go?

    tum ne Thahrai agar ghair ke ghar jaane ki

    to irade yahan kuchh aur Thahar jaenge

    if you are resolved to go / thus to my rival's house

    my cause with greater ardor / I'll surely then espouse

    KHali ai chaaragaro honge bahut marham-dan

    par mere zaKHm nahin aise ki bhar jaenge

    healers, all your potions, balms, may now be at an end

    but my wounds are not the sort / that can be ever mend

    pahunchenge rahguzar-e-yar talak kyun kar hum

    pahle jab tak na do aalam se guzar jaenge

    the path to my beloved's street / how can I ever find

    until I traverse the course / of both the worlds combined

    shola-e-ah ko bijli ki tarah chamkaun

    par mujhe Dar hai ki wo dekh ke Dar jaenge

    like lightning I would brighten / the flame that is my sigh

    but then I am afraid that she, in fear, would start to cry

    hum nahin wo jo karen KHun ka dawa tujh par

    balki puchhega KHuda bhi to mukar jaenge

    I'm not one who'll seek to pin / my murder at your side

    in fact I'd deny if God / too asks me how I died

    aag dozaKH ki bhi ho jaegi pani pani

    jab ye aasi araq-e-sharm se tar jaenge

    even blazing, roaring flames / of hell will then be quenched

    when sinners, in the sweat of shame / go there fully drenched

    nahin paega nishan koi hamara hargiz

    hum jahan se rawish-e-tir-e-nazar jaenge

    ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔

    ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔

    samne chashm-e-guhar-bar ke kah do dariya

    chaDh ke gar aae to nazron se utar jaenge

    ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔

    ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔

    lae jo mast hain turbat pe gulabi aankhen

    aur agar kuchh nahin do phul to dhar jaenge

    to my grave, she ventures with / rose tinted eyes aglow

    if nothing else, then now at least, two buds she will bestow

    ruKH-e-raushan se naqab apne ulaT dekho tum

    mehr-o-mah nazron se yaron ki utar jaenge

    let now your radiant face unveil, do let it come to light

    the sun and moon will fade away / from everybody's sight

    hum bhi dekhenge koi ahl-e-nazar hai ki nahin

    yan se jab hum rawish-e-tir-e-nazar jaenge

    ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔

    ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔

    'zauq' jo madrase ke bigDe hue hain mulla

    un ko mai-KHane mein le aao sanwar jaenge

    'zauq', misled by madrasas, mullahs have gone astray

    bring them to the tavern, there, they will mend their way
