baat karni mujhe mushkil kabhi aisi to na thi

Bahadur Shah Zafar

MORE BY Bahadur Shah Zafar

    baat karnī mujhe mushkil kabhī aisī to na thī

    jaisī ab hai tirī mahfil kabhī aisī to na thī

    conversing has never been so diffficult for me

    your company now is no more as it used to be

    le gayā chhīn ke kaun aaj tirā sabr o qarār

    be-qarārī tujhe ai dil kabhī aisī to na thī

    who is it that's spirited your peace and calm away

    O heart you never were perturbed as you are today

    us āñkhoñ ne ḳhudā jaane kiyā kyā jaadū

    ki tabī.at mirī maa.il kabhī aisī to na thī

    Lord knows what enchantment her eyes have cast on me

    never was my temperament inclined to this degree

    aks-e-ruḳhsār ne kis ke hai tujhe chamkāyā

    taab tujh meñ mah-e-kāmil kabhī aisī to na thī

    reflection of whose face is it that causes you to glow?

    O full moon, you've never shone this brightly before

    ab jo rāh-e-mohabbat meñ uThā.ī taklīf

    saḳht hotī hameñ manzil kabhī aisī to na thī

    --------

    --------

    pā-e-kūbāñ koī zindāñ meñ nayā hai majnūñ

    aatī āvāz-e-salāsil kabhī aisī to na thī

    in jail some lover, newly crazed, is stomping all around

    never did the clamour of the chains produce this sound

    nigah-e-yār ko ab kyuuñ hai taġhāful ai dil

    vo tire haal se ġhāfil kabhī aisī to na thī

    O heart why is my loved one's glance neglectful today?

    unmindful of your state, it has never been this way

    chashm-e-qātil mirī dushman thī hamesha lekin

    jaisī ab ho ga.ī qātil kabhī aisī to na thī

    --------

    --------

    kyā sabab jo bigaḌtā hai 'zafar' se har baar

    ḳhū tirī hūr-shamā.il kabhī aisī to na thī

    what reason zafar's every act you do now deplore

    houri-face! your nature never was like this before

    baat karni mujhe mushkil kabhi aisi to na thi

    jaisi ab hai teri mahfil kabhi aisi to na thi

    conversing has never been so diffficult for me

    your company now is no more as it used to be

    le gaya chhin ke kaun aaj tera sabr o qarar

    be-qarari tujhe ai dil kabhi aisi to na thi

    who is it that's spirited your peace and calm away

    O heart you never were perturbed as you are today

    us ki aankhon ne KHuda jaane kiya kya jadu

    ki tabiat meri mail kabhi aisi to na thi

    Lord knows what enchantment her eyes have cast on me

    never was my temperament inclined to this degree

    aks-e-ruKHsar ne kis ke hai tujhe chamkaya

    tab tujh mein mah-e-kaamil kabhi aisi to na thi

    reflection of whose face is it that causes you to glow?

    O full moon, you've never shone this brightly before

    ab ki jo rah-e-mohabbat mein uThai taklif

    saKHt hoti hamein manzil kabhi aisi to na thi

    --------

    --------

    pa-e-kuban koi zindan mein naya hai majnun

    aati aawaz-e-salasil kabhi aisi to na thi

    in jail some lover, newly crazed, is stomping all around

    never did the clamour of the chains produce this sound

    nigah-e-yar ko ab kyun hai taghaful ai dil

    wo tere haal se ghafil kabhi aisi to na thi

    O heart why is my loved one's glance neglectful today?

    unmindful of your state, it has never been this way

    chashm-e-qatil meri dushman thi hamesha lekin

    jaisi ab ho gai qatil kabhi aisi to na thi

    --------

    --------

    kya sabab tu jo bigaDta hai 'zafar' se har bar

    KHu teri hur-shamail kabhi aisi to na thi

    what reason zafar's every act you do now deplore

    houri-face! your nature never was like this before
