Shikwa Jawab e Shikwa lyrics
Shikwa The Complaint(6)
The hameen ek tire maarke araaon mein, Khushkion mein kabhi larte, kabhi dariyaon mein Deen azaanen kabhi Europe ke kaleeaon mein kabhi Africa ke tapte howa sehraon mein Shan ankhon mein na jachti thi jahan daron ki Kalima parhte the hum chao mein talwaron ki
And now upon the land we fought and now upon the salt sea spray.
We made our Azan’s call resound beneath proud spires in western lands
And made that magic melody thrill over Afric’s burning sands
The pageantries of mighty kings to us were shows that mattered not,
Beneath the shade of blades unsheathed in kalima we gorly sought.⏪
Jawab E Shikwa The Answer to the Complaint (6)
Hum to mayal ba karam hain koi sayal hi nahi Rah dikhlaen kise rahraw manzil hi nahi Tarbiat am to hai jauhar e qabil hi nahi Jis se taamir ho adam ki yeh woh gil hi nahi Koi Qabil ho to hum shan e ki dete hain Dhoondne walon ko dunya bhi nai dete hain
And how shall I the right road show when there’s no traveler?
My loving care is there for all if deserved but by few,
Not this the clay from which I can an Adam’s shape renew
On him who merits well I set the brightest diadem’
And those who truly questing come a new waits for them.⏪
Shikwa The Complaint(7)
Hum jo jeete tha to jango ki musibat ke liya Aur merte the tere naam ki azmat ke liya Thi na kuch taeg zani apni hukumat ke liya Sar bakaf phirte tha kya dehar mein doulat ke liya Qaum apni jo zar o maal e jahan par marti, boht faroshi ke lwaz boht Shikni kyo karti?
⏩Our only life was then to face the perils of your holy wars,
To glorify of your name we died, adorned with hallowed battle scars
Not lust for power for our own sakes our drawn swords playfulness inspired,
Nor roamed we hand in glove with death for worldly riches we desired
Our people had they set their hearts on this worlds riches or its gold,
Not idol breaking would have gone but idols would have bought and sold.⏪
Haath be zoIihaad se dil khoo gar hain Ummati baais e Ruswai e Paighamber (S.A.W) hain Boht Shikan uth gaye baqi jo rahe but gar hain The braheem pidar aur pisar azar hai Badah asham naye bada naya khum b naye Harm e Kaaba naya boht b naye tum b naye
Abraham was the father you his sons are but Azar,
A strange new KABA you have reared strange idole oh its shrine
Shikwa The Complaint(8)
Tal na sakte tha agr jang mein arh jate tha Paon sheron ke bhi maidan se ukhar jate tha
Tujh se sarkash howa koi to bighar tha
Taeg kya cheez hai hum toup se larh jate tha
Naqsh tauheed ka har dil pe bithaya hum ne
Zer e khanjar b yeh paigham sunaya hum ne
Before our might the bravest quailed and vanquished from the battle fled
And those who offered you affront our swift relentless fury faced,
Their mightiest arms we set at nougat their insolence and pride abased
On all men’s minds we set your seal your tawhid’s firm and sure impress,
The selfsame message preached our lips when swords danced high in battle’s stress.
Woh b din tha k yehi maya e raanai tha Nazish e mousam e gul lala e sahrai tha Jo Musalmaan tha Allah ka saudai tha Kabhi Mehboob tumhara yehi harjai tha Kisi yakjai se ab Ehd e Ghulamo kar lo Millat e Ahmed (S.A.W) ko maqami kar lo
The tulip of wilds once reigned the queen of blossom time,
In this once lay the quintessence of loveliness sublime
This fickle hearted courtesan even you did once adore
Go seek some constant mistress now to, her a new bond sign,
Muhammad Universal creed to narrow bounds confine.
Tu hi keh de ukhara dar e khyber kis ne, Sheher Qaiser ka jo tha us ko kiya sar kis ne Tore makhluq khudawandon ke paikar kis ne kaat kar rakh diye Kuffar ke lashkar kis ne Kis ne thanda Atishkuda e Iran ko? kis ne phir zinda kiya tazkara e yazdaan ko?
Or whose resistless might once laid famed Caesar proudest cities low?
Who smashed to dust man’s hand wrought Gods those things of straw and earth and clay?
And who did unbelieving hosts to spread your name and glory slay?
And who was it that quenched and cooled the fiery urns of Iran?
And in that land did once again revive the worship of yazdan?
Kis qadar tum pe garan subah ki baidari hai Hum se kab pyar hai haan neend tumhain payri hai Tabaa e azad pe qaid e ramzan bhari hai Tumhai keh do yehi aeen e wafadri hai? Qoum mazhab se hai mazhab jo nahi tum bhi nahi jazb e baham jo nahi mehfil e anjum bhi nahin
To pray to me at break of day you now an ordeal deem,
Your morning slumber sweeter far, yet you would faithful seem
The hardships of the fast oppress your nature now grown free,
Such are your ways and you still would protest your love for me
Unto a nation faith is life you lost your faith and fell
When gravitation fails must cease concourse celestial.
Kon se Qoum Faqat teri talabgar howi Aur Tere liye Zehmat kash paikaar howi
Kis ki shamsheer jahangeer jahandar howi
kis ki takbeer se dunya teri baidar howi
kis ki Haibat se sanam sehme howi rehte tha
Munh ke bal gir k HU WA ALLAH HU AHAD kehte tha
Or risked the perils of fell war that your Divines will be wrought?
Whose was that conquest thirsty sword which won and held the world in fee?
And whose the Takbeer sounding call which wakened all the world to you?
Whose was the fateful wrath which made all idols shrink in terror just?
There is no God but God, they cried as crumbling down they kissed the dust.
Jin ko ata nahi dunya mein koi fann tum ho nahi jis qoum ko parwaye nasheman tum ho Bijliyan jis mein hon asudah woh khirman tum ho Baich khate hain jo aslaaf ke madfan tum ko Ho niko naam jo qabaron ki tajarat kar ke kya na baicho ga jo mil jae sanam pathar ke
You are the most incompetent in knowledge and in worth
You are barn where light stays where ruin idle lies;
Ancestral coffins long entombed your only merchandise,
In turning graves to profit you have proved yourselves adept
Should idol trading offer gain of course you would accept
