Likh Diya Apne Dar Pe Kisi Ne, Is Jagah Pyar Karna Mana Hai
Pyar Agar Ho Bhi Jaye Kisi Ko, Iska Izhar Karna Mana Hai
One inscribed outside his entrance, here love is forbidden,
If, one does fall in love, then declaration of such here is forbidden.
Unki Mahfil Mein Jab Koi Jaaye, Pehle Nazrein Woh Apni Jhukaye
Wo Sanam Jo Khuda Ban Gaye Hein, Unka Deedaar Karna Manaa Hai
Whilst one joins their assembly, first he must lower his gaze,
Lovers that have reached divine majesty, here sights of them are forbidden.
Jaag Uthein Gay To Aahein Bharein Gay, Husn Walon Ko Ruswaa Karein Gay
So Gaye Hain Jo Furqat Ke Maare, Unko Bedaar Karna Manaa Hai
If they become awake, they will show dismay at those with immense beauty,
Those who have gone asleep in separation, awakening them here is forbidden.
Hum Nai Ki Arz Ay Banda Parwar, Kiyon Sitam Dhal Rahay Ho Yeh Hum Per
Baat Sun Kar Hamari Woh Bole, Hum Say Taqraar Karna Mana Hai
We questioned for the sake of humanity, why such betrayal towards us,
Listening to such words, they answered ‘’confronting with us is also forbidden’’.
Saamnay Jo Khula Hai Jharoka, Kha Na Jana Qateel Kahin Unka Dhoka
Ub Bhi Apnay Liyeh Us Gali Mein, Shouq-e-Deedaar Karna Mana Hai
In front of you is an overhanging balcony, Qateel* fall not again for a deception,
For us even now sights of such interests in that street are forbidden.
* Qateel is a name of the poet.
