Wo Dil Hi Kya Tire Milne Ki Jo Dua Na Kare

Image
वो दिल ही क्या तिरे मिलने की जो दुआ न करे। Wo Dil Hi Kya Tere Milne Ki Jo Dua Na Kare - Qateel Shifai This is 'Qateel Shifai' love ghazal where he is praying to die than to live in separation. In all stanzas he is demanding death or destruction or something like that for not getting love. The famous 'Sher' from this ghazal 'Ye Theek Hai ........Juda Na Kare' (third stanza) he is saying that no one die in love but even though no one should be separated as he know the pain of it. I have translated it here and hope you will like it. 


वो दिल ही क्या तिरे मिलने की जो दुआ न करे,  मैं तुझ को भूल के ज़िंदा रहूँ ख़ुदा न करे।  Wo Dil Hi Kya Tere Milne Ki Jo Dua Na Kare, Mein Tujh Ko Bhul Ke Zinda Rahun Khuda Na Kare.
That heart is useless which don't pray for meeting with you, God forbid that I live after forgetting you.
रहेगा साथ तिरा प्यार ज़िंदगी बन कर, ये और बात मिरी ज़िंदगी वफ़ा न करे।  Rahega Saath Tera Pyaar Zindagi Ban Kar, Ye Aur Baat Meri Zindagi Wafa Na Kare.
You…

Tu Hayaat Ka Savera Hai

तू हयात का सवेरा है। (Tu Hayaat Ka Savera Hai)
Mothers are that light of the god which fulfills His void in our life. Without teachings of mother you will not even know about god. Even though every day is dedicated to mothers, on this special day we would cherish our mothers more. Happy Mothers Day.


तू ज़मीन है, तू ही उजाला है,
प्यार ने तेरे ही हमको पाला है,
मैं तो मिट्टी का खांमखां सा टुकड़ा था,
इस रूप-रंग में तूने ही ढला है।
Tu Zameen Hai, Tu Hi Ujala Hai,
Pyaar Ne Tere Hi Humko Pala Hai,
Mein To Mitti Ka Khamankhan Sa Tukda Tha,
Iss Roop-Rang Mein Tune Dhala Hai.

तू ही हयात का सवेरा है,
महफूज़ हूँ, तेरे आँचल ने मुझको घेरा है,
होना खुदा का तो मुझे मालूम नहीं,
मेरे घर में तो तेरा बसेरा है। 
Tu Hi Hayaat Ka Savera Hai,
Mehfooz Hun, Tere Aanchal Ne Mujhko Ghera Hai,
Hona Khuda Ka To Mujhe Maloom Nahin,
Mere Ghar Mein To Tera Basera Hai.

Subah Ho Jaaye Revisited

Subah Ho Jaaye Revisited (सुबह हो जाए) This the second post I shared on this blog in 31st August 2012. Like earlier sharing of old poem in this one two I have made changes which I thought suitable after gaining experience. This Ghazal is praising the beloved's beauty and charm. I hope you will like this one too.



तू जिधर चाहे निकल जाए सुबह हो जाए, ग़म जितने भी हैं सारे हवा हो जाएँ।
Tu Jedhar Chahe Nikal Jaaye Subah Ho Jaaye,
Gham Jitne Bhi Hain Saare Hawa Ho Jaaen.

Where ever you go it's morning,
all sorrows take a drowning. 
तेरे क़दमों की चाहत में ज़मीं बिछती है, तेरे दीदार को ही सूरज सर पर आये। 
Tere Kadmon Ki Chahat Mein Zamin Bichti Hai,
Tere Didar Ko Hi Suraj Sar Par Aaye.

Ground make way to seek your steps,
sun rises, so your glimpse he may grasp.
न मुस्कुरा के पतझड़ का मौसम है अभी, कहीं फूल खिलने को न मचल जाएँ। 
Na Muskura Ke Patjhad Ka Mausam Hai Abhi,
Kahin Phool Khilne Ko Na Machal Jaaen.

Don't smile now as it is autumn,
flower may bloom being that forgotten

खुलेआम यूँ जुल्फ…
