Aj sik Mitran di vadheyri ay
kyoun dilri udaas ghaneyri ay?
loon loon vich shawq changeyri ay
uj nainan laiyan kyon jhariyan!
Why is the yearning for the Loved One (RASULALLAHﷺ) especially strong today?
Why is my heart sadder today than even before?
Why does longing penetrate every tissue of mine?
And why are the eyes shedding tears like a shower of rain?
Mukh chan badr sha shani ay
Mathay chamkay lat noorani ay
Kali zulf tey akh mastaani ay
Makhmur ukheen hin madh bhariyan
His shining face appeared to me in a vision,
And fragrance emanated in profusion from His tresses;
I fainted from the sight of these visions;
The beauty of his eyes overpowered me.
Is surat nun mein jaan akhan
jan akhan ke jan-e-jahan akhan?
Such akhan tey Rabb di shaan aakhaan
jis shan toon shanan sab baniyan
I am not sure whether I should call his face the essence of life;
Or life of the entire universe;
The truth is that it is the glory of God,
From which all other worldly glories originated.
Subhan ALLAH! Ma ajmalaka
ma ahsanaka, maa akmalaka
Glory be to ALLAH! There is no one more beautiful than Thee!
No one more excellent than Thee, no one more Perfect!
Kithey Mehr Ali kithay teri sana
gustakh akhin kithey ja ariyan!
Who is (the humble) Meher Ali to chant thy praises;
How (presumptuous and) impudent his eyes are to aspire to the heights of thy love!
