Poetry of Hazrat Inayat Khan | Ajab shaan hai

Collage of Hazrat Inayat Khan by Sadiq Alam @ MysticSaint

Ajab shaan hai, mast e saut e azl kee
Na parwah rahay, oos ko thal kee na jal kee

What a unique glory has the one who is attuned to the sound of Eternity,
He is not concerned about the (happenings of the) land or the lake (the earth or water).

Oosi sur kay, dhiyaani hain roz e azl say
Kay maaray hooay, hain pia kay charan kay

It is the same sound that we have all been intoxicated by since the beginning of time,
It is the same sound that brings us to the feet of the Beloved.

Khudaee karain kar kay dikhlaayain dum main
Agar dair main hon kay hon ya haram main

Let us reflect Him through our breath and our actions,
Whether we are in the temple or in the mosque.

Inayat sada kay fidayee hain saaray
Parhain hain azl say pia kay duwaaray

Oh Inayat, we are all intoxicated by that which is Eternal,
 And since the beginning of time we have been lying at the doorstep of the Beloved.

Jo oos ka hai waisa hee hona hai laazim
Mijaz aur haqeeqat hain baahim mulaazim!

If you come from Him, you are bound to be like Him,
The inner and the outer world are, after all, one!

Ajab shaan hai, mast e saut e azl kee
Inayat karo bus bhee tum aur yeh baat

Oh what a unique glory has the one who is attuned to the sound of Eternity,
Oh Inayat, stop talking about such lofty ideals!

Haqeeqat kay charchay, tumhaaree yeh awqaat
Illahi karam ho, kay zara ho khursheed

Look at reality and look at your own lowly nature,
Still, if He wishes, He can turn a speck of dust into sunlight!

Karam ho to ho jayay, sar sabz umeed
Ajab shaan hai, mast e saut e azl kee!

And with His blessings, hope becomes evergreen,
Oh what a unique glory has the one who is intoxicated by the sound of eternity!
