Tariq Ki Dua
(Andalus Ke Maidan-e-Jang Mein)
(In the Battlefield of Andalusia)
Ye Ghazi, Ye Tere Purisrar Bande
Jinhain Tu Ne Bakhsha Hai Zuaq-e-Khudai
These warriors, victorious, These worshippers of Yours,
Whom You have granted the will to win power in Your name;
Do-Neem In Ki Thoukar Se Sehra-o-Darya
Simat Kar Pahar In Ki Haibat Se Rayi
Who cleave rivers and woods in twain,
Whose terror turns mountains into dust;
Do Alam Se Karti Hai Baigana Dil Ko
Ajab Cheez Hai Lazzat-e-Ashnayi
They care not for the world;
They care not for its pleasures;
Shahadat Hai Matloob-o-Maqsood-e-Momin
Na Maal-e-Ghanimat Na Kishwar Kushayi
In their passion, in their zeal, In their love for Thee, O Lord,
They aim at martyrdom, Not the rule of the earth.
Khayaban Mein Hai Muntazir Lala Kab Se
Qaba Chahye Iss Ko Khoon-e-Arab Se
In the flower-bed, Rose is waiting from long time
The Color from Arabs’ blood
Kiya Tu Ne Sehra Nasheenon Ko Yakta
Khabar Mein, Nazar Mein, Azan-e-Sehar Mein
You have united warring tribes,
In thought, in deed, in prayer.
Talab Jis Ki Sadiyon Se Thi Zindagi Ko
Woh Souz Iss Ne Paya Inhi Ke Jigar Mein
The burning fire that life had sought For centuries,
Was found in them at last.
Kushad-e-Dar-e-Dil Samajhte Hain Iss Ko
Halakat Nahin Mout In Ki Nazar Mein
They think of death, not as life’s end,
But as the ennobling of the heart.
Dil-e-Mard-e-Momin Mein Phir Zinda Kar De
Woh Bijli Ke Thi Na’ara-e-‘LA TAZAR’ Mein
Make alive in the heart of a Muslim again
That Power the slogan ‘My Lord! Leave not one of the disbelievers’ had.
La-Tazar (Verse 26 of Surah Nuh- No. 71 – Quran)
Aza’im Ko Seenon Mein Baidar-e-Kar De
Nigah-e-Musalman Ko Talwar Kar De!
Awaken in them an iron will,
And make their eye a sharpened sword.
