محنت و سرمايہ دنيا ميں صف آرا ہو گئے

محنت و سرمايہ دنيا ميں صف آرا ہو گئے
ديکھے ہوتا ہے کس کس کي تمنائوں کا خون
حکمت و تدبير سے يہ فتنہ آشوب خيز
ٹل نہيں سکتا ، وقد کنتم بہ تستعجلون،
کھل گئے، ياجوج اور ماجوج کے لشکر تمام
چشم مسلم ديکھ لے تفسير حرف 'ينسلون'


Capital and labor are in confrontation with each other
Let us see how many people’s expectations are destroyed

With cleverness and prudence this mischief cannot be delayed
Because “Wa qad kuntum bihâ tasta‘jilën1

Gog  and Magog all have been released
The Muslim eye will see the meaning of Yansilën 2


Explanatory Notes
Allusion to the Holy Qur’«n 10: 51.

"Would ye then believe in it at last, when it actually cometh to pass? (It will then be said): 'Ah! now? and ye wanted (aforetime) to hasten it on!'

2. Allusion to the Holy Qur’an 21: 96. See also Appendix II. In this verse the reference is to the capitalist-imperialists who together despoiled the defenseless non-European world.

“Until the Gog and Magog (people) are let through (their barrier), and they swiftly swarm from every hill.” (21:96)

Life may be lost but truth should not be lost
This one principle is the core of all religions

They are the birds of the same feather,
Banking, landlordship, monarchy




جان جائے ہاتھ سے جائے نہ ست
ہيہي اک بات ہر مذہب کا تت ے
 چٹےبٹے ايک ہي تھيلي کے ہيں
ساہوکاري، سلطنت،  بسوہ داري

The patient of civilization will not be cured by the gŕlâ 1
For curing of the malady you should present him with pill

There was a time when in exchange for the teacher’s services
One wanted that the gift of the heart he should present!

Times have changed so much that the pupil after the lesson
Says to the teacher “You should present the bill”

تہذيب کے مريض کو گولي سے فائدہ!
 دفع مرض کے واسطے پل پيش کيجيے
 تھےوہ بھي دن کہ خدمت استاد کے عوض
 چاہتا تھا ہديہء دل پيش کيجيے دل
 زمانہ ايسا کہ لڑکا پس از سبق بدلا
 کہتا ہے ماسٹر سے کہ ''بل پيش کيجيے!''


Ode no 31 from Bang-i-D’rra


Every object has the urge
To manifest itself;
Every atom serves
An unknown divine will.

Life is death without
The impulse to assert itself.,
The building up of Selfhood
Is a sublime assertion.

The wandering stars are sad,
Solitary and lost;
For solitude is the doom
Of all existent life.

The pale—faced moon,
Remote from the starry realm,
Is alone, adrift,
In the cosmic void.

Thou art the only truth
In this world of illusion;
The rest is all a glassy—
Fabric of thy vision.


چيز ہے محو خود نمائي ہر
 ذرہ شہيد کبريائي ہر
 ذوق نمود زندگي ، موت بے
 خودي ميں ہے خدائي تعمير
رائي زور خودي سے پربت
 ضعف خودي سے رائي پربت
تارے آوارہ و کم آميز
 وجود ہے جدائي تقدير
 پچھلے پہر کا زرد رو چاند يہ
 راز و نياز آشنائي بے
 قنديل ہے ترا دل تيري
 آپ ہے اپني روشنائي تو
 اک تو ہے کہ حق ہے اس جہاں ميں
 ہے نمود سيميائي باقي
 عقدہ کشا يہ خار صحرا ہيں
کمکر گلہ برہنہ پائي
