Shikwa The Complaint(1)

Kyun ziyaan kaar banun, sood framosh rhon
Fikr e farda na karo mahw e ghum e dosh rahun
Naal e bulbul ke sunoon aur hama tan gosh raho
Humnawa main bhi koi gul hun k khamosh raho
Jurrat amoz miri taab e sakhum hain mujh ko
Shikwa Allah se khakam badahan hain mujh ko
                    ⏩Why should i choose the loser’s ? Forbear to seek what gain i may.
                    Nor think of what the morrow holds, but brood o ‘er woes of yesterday.
Why should my ears enraptured hear the plaintive notes of raho
Fellow bard ‘ a rose am i to lose me in sweet music’s swell? 
For i to have the gift of song which gives me courage to complain
But ah tis none but God  himself whom i in sorrow must arraign⏪

Jawab e Shikwa The Answer to the Complaint (1)

Dil se jo bat nikalti hai asat rakhti hai
Par nahi taaqat e parwaaz magar rakhti hai
Qudsi ul asal hai riffat pe nazr rakhti hai
Khaak se uthti hai gardoon pe guzar rakhti hai
Ishq tha fitna gar o sarkash o chalaak mera
Asman cheer gaya nala e bebaak mera
                             ⏩When passion streaming from the turns human lips to lyres,
                             Some magic wings man’s music then his song with soul inspires
Man’s words are sacred then they soar, the ears of heaven they seek
From dust those mortal accents rise, immortals hear them speak
so wild and wayward was my love, sach tumult rasied its sighs,
before its daring swittly fell the ramparts of the skies.⏪

Shikwa The Complaint(2)

Peer e Gardoon ne kaha sun ke, kahin hai koi
Bole sayaare, sar e arsh e bareen hai koi

chaand kahta tha nhi ahl e zameen hai koi
Kehkashan kehti thi poshida yahin hai koi

Kuch jo samjha tu mere shikwa ko rizwan samjh
Mujhe janat se nikala howa insan samjha

⏩ I grant that we have earned repute as ever reconciled to fate
But to you still a tale of pain I can no longer help narrate.

Though we may seem like voiceless Iyres, within imprisoned anguish cries
Its urge compels and I obey, framing these  plaintive melodies.

Hear  you O God ‘ these sad complaints those of proven fealty,
From lips accustomed but to praise hear you these words in blame of you,

The skies exclaimed in wonderment, some one is hiding here 

The wheeling planets paused to say, seek on highest sphere 

The silver moon said you are wrong, some mortal it must be 

The milky way too joined converse, here in our midst is he. 

Rizwan alone, my plaintive voice began to recognise, 

He knew me for a human who had lost his paradise.

Shikwa The Complaint(3)

Thi to maujood azal se hi teri zaat e qadim
phool tha zaib e chaman par na peshan thi shamim

Shart insaaf hai ae sahib e altaf e amim
bo e gul phailti kis tarah jo hoti na nasim

Hum ko jamiat e khatir ye preshani  thi
Warna Ummat tere Mehboob (S.A.W) ki diwani thi

 
From when eternal time began your timeless self had also been
But then no breeze its sweetness spread though the rose reigned the gardens queen.
 
Canst you in justice but confess O Lord from whom all favors flow,
Had not the south wind toiled in love the world your fragrance would not know?
 
The glad travail we sought for rejoiced our souls and our pride
Thinks you the followers of your friend insanely spread your truth so wide?

Jawab e Shikwa The Answer to the Complaint (3)

 
Thi farishton ko bhi hairat, ke yeh awaz hai kya
Arsh walon pe bhi khalta nahi ye raaz hai kya

 

Taa sar e arsh bhi insan ki tag o taaz hai kya?
Aa gayi khak ki chutki ko bhi parwaaz hai kya?

Ghafil Aadaad se yeh sukan e zameen kaise hain
Shokh o Gustakh yeh pasti ke makeen kisa hain 

 
And even the Angels could not tell what was that voice so strange,
Whose secret seemed to lie beyond celestial wisdom’s range.

They said, can man now roving come and reach these regions high?
That tiny speck of mortal clay, has it now learnt to fly
 

                                     How little do these beings of earth laws of conduct know,
                                     How coarse and insolent they are, these men who live below.

Shikwa The Complaint(4)

Hum se pehle tha ajab tere jahan ka manzar
Kahin masjood tha pathar kahin maabood shajar

 

Khugar e paikar e mahsoos thi insaan ki nazar
Manta phir koi un dekhe Khuda ko Kyukar

Tujh ko maalum hai leta tha koi nam tera?
Quwwat e baazo e Muslim ne kiya kaam tera

 
Before we came how strange a sight was this most beauteous word of thin yours
For here to stones men bowed their head, and there in tree did Gods’ enshrine

Their unenlightened minds could seize nought else but what their eyes could see,
You know, Lord, your write ran not man neither knew nor worshipped the (you)

And canst you say that even once one of these did your name recite?
It was the might of Muslim arms fulfilled your task and gave them light.

Jawab e Shikwa The Answer to the Complaint (4)

Iss Qadar shokh ke Allah se bhi barham hai
Tha jo masjood e malaek yeh wohi adam hai?

 

Alam e kaif hai dana e ramooz e kaam hai
Han, magar Ijaz ke asrar se namehram hai

Naaz hai taaqat e guftaar pe insanon  ko
Baat karne ka saliqa nhi nadanon ko

 
So great their insolence indeed, they dare even God upbraid
Is this the man to whom their bow the angels once had made?

Of quality and quantity he knows the secrets true,
The ways of humbleness as well if he a little knew,

That they alone are blest with speech how proud these humans be,
Yet, ignorant, they lack the art to use it gracefully.

Shikwa The Complaint(5)

Bas rahe the yahin saljuq bhi toorani bhi
Ahl e chin cheen mein, Iran mein sasani bhi

 

Issi maanore mein abad the yoonani bhi
Issi dunya mein yahudi bhi the nusraani bhi

Par tere naam pe talwar uthai kisi ne
Bat jo bigri huwi thi woh banaai kis ne

 
Yet once there lived the seljuks here, Turanians too, and wise Chinese,
Sasanians drew their breath and thrived in rose perfumed Iranian breeze,

And else where in your peopled world the Greeks of Yunan held their sway,
While sons of Israel side with Christian Nations had their day.

But which among these nations raised the sacred sword in holy fight,
Self – consecrated to your cause to set crazy world aright?

Jawab e Shikwa The Answer to the Complaint (5)

 Ayi awaz ghum angaiz hai afasan tera
Ashk e betaab se labraiz hai paimana tera

 

Asmangeer huwa naara e mastana tera
Kis qadar shokh zuban hai dil e diwana tera

Shukr Shikwa ko kiya husan e ada se tu ne
Hum sukhan kar diya bandon ko khuda se tu ne


Then spake a voice compassionate, your tale enkindles pain
Your cup is brimming full with tears which you could not contain.

Even high heaven itself is moved by these impassioned cries,
How wild the heart which taught your lips such savage melodies,

Its grace yet makes this song of yours a song of eulogy;
A bridge of converse  you have formed’ twixt mortal man and me.
