    aa.e ho to ye hijāb kyā hai

    muñh khol do naqāb kyā hai

    when you have come / then why this modesty?

    unveil yourself / and show your face to me

    siine meñ Thahartā nahīñ dil

    yā-rab ise iztirāb kyā hai

    my heart does not remain within my breast

    tell me, O Lord, what is its unrest?

    kal teġh nikāl mujh se bolā

    dekh to is aab kyā hai

    she drew her sword and then she said to me

    the luster and the shine you ought to see

    ma.alūm nahīñ ki apnā dīvāñ

    hai marsiya kitāb kyā hai

    I know not / if my tome of poetry

    is it a book / or else an elegy?

    jo mar ga.e maare lutf ke

    phir un pe miyāñ itaab kyā hai

    when due to pleasure, itself, you have died

    then why, with her, does your anger abide?

    auroñ se to hai ye be-hijābī

    mujh se tujhe hijāb kyā hai

    to others, you / do deign to show your face

    why just with me / is your veil in place?

    ai 'mus.hafī' uTh ye dhuup aa.ī

    itnā bhī divāne ḳhvāb kyā hai

    wake 'mus.hafi'! and see the sunlight stream

    O crazy one, say how long shall you dream?

    aae ho to ye hijab kya hai

    munh khol do naqab kya hai

    when you have come / then why this modesty?

    unveil yourself / and show your face to me

    sine mein Thaharta hi nahin dil

    ya-rab ise iztirab kya hai

    my heart does not remain within my breast

    tell me, O Lord, what is its unrest?

    kal tegh nikal mujh se bola

    tu dekh to is ki aab kya hai

    she drew her sword and then she said to me

    the luster and the shine you ought to see

    malum nahin ki apna diwan

    hai marsiya ya kitab kya hai

    I know not / if my tome of poetry

    is it a book / or else an elegy?

    jo mar gae mare lutf hi ke

    phir un pe miyan itab kya hai

    when due to pleasure, itself, you have died

    then why, with her, does your anger abide?

    auron se to hai ye be-hijabi

    mujh se hi tujhe hijab kya hai

    to others, you / do deign to show your face

    why just with me / is your veil in place?

    ai 'mushafi' uTh ye dhup aai

    itna bhi diwane KHwab kya hai

    wake 'mus.hafi'! and see the sunlight stream

    O crazy one, say how long shall you dream?
