momin-khan-momin

Roya Karenge Aap Bhi Pahron Isi Tarah

roya karenge aap bhi pahron isi tarah

atka kahin jo aap ka dil bhi miri tarah

you too will end up weeping hours, in this very way

if your heart, like mine, is this entangled some day

aata nahin hai vo to kisi Dhab se daav men

banti nahin hai milne ki us ke koi tarah

she is not ensnared by any tactic I pursue

there is no way to meet her whatever I may do

tashbih kis se duun ki tarah-dar ki mire

sab se nirali vaza hai sab se nai tarah

for my dearest one how do I find a similie

her manner is unique and new as no one else can be

mar chuk kahin ki tu gham-e-hijran se chhut jaae

kahte to hain bhale ki va-lekin buri tarah

“go die somewhere to get release from separation’s pain”

she means well although she talks in a vicious vein

ne taab hijr men hai na aram vasl men

kam-bakht dil ko chain nahin hai kisi tarah

no peace in separation, nor in union ease

this hapless heart is restless, do whatever I please

lagti hain galiyan bhi tire munh se kya bhali

qurban tere phir mujhe kah le usi tarah

even your abuse sounds sweet to my ears, its true

keep on in this tone and my life belongs to you

pamal ham na hote faqat jaur-e-charkh se

aai hamari jaan pe aafat kai tarah

I would not be trampled only by heaven’s excess

my life indeed has undergone so many kinds of stress

ne jaae vaan bane hai ne bin jaae chain hai

kya kijiye hamen to hai mushkil sabhi tarah

neither can I go there, nor can I stay away

what can I do? I am constrained, each and every way

maashuq aur bhi hain bata de jahan men

karta hai kaun zulm kisi par tiri tarah

in this world, there’d surely be, other beloveds too

tell me is there anyone as cruel as you?

huun jan-ba-lab butan-e-sitamgar ke haath se

kya sab jahan men jiite hain ‘momin’ isi tarah

my life hangs on edge due to these idol’s cruelty

does everybody in this world momin live like me?
