surḳh-rū hotā hai insāñ Thokareñ khāne ke ba.ad

rañg laatī hai hinā patthar pe pis jaane ke ba.ad

surKH-ru hota hai insan Thokaren khane ke baad

rang lati hai hina patthar pe pis jaane ke baad

miTā de apnī hastī ko agar kuchh martaba chāhe

ki daana ḳhaak meñ mil kar gul-o-gulzār hotā hai

a seed has to bite the dust to become a flower

miTa de apni hasti ko agar kuchh martaba chahe

ki dana KHak mein mil kar gul-o-gulzar hota hai

a seed has to bite the dust to become a flower

kuchh dost se ummīd na andesha-e-dushman

hogā vahī jo kuchh mirī qismat meñ likhā hai

kuchh dost se ummid na andesha-e-dushman

hoga wahi jo kuchh meri qismat mein likha hai
