main kia chaata huun

              تیرے عشق کي انتہا چاہتا ہوں
مری سادگي ديکھ کيا چاہتا ہوں
ستم ہو کہ ہو وعدہ بے حجابي
کوئي بات صبر آزما چاہتا ہوں
يہ جنت مبارک رہے زاہدوں کو
کہ ميں آپ کا سامنا چاہتا ہوں
ذرا سا تو دل ہوں ، مگر شوخ اتنا
وہي لن تراني سنا چاہتا ہوں
کوئي دم کا مہماں ہوں اے اہل محفل
چراغ سحر ہوں ، بجھا چاہتا ہوں
بھری بزم ميں راز کي بات کہہ دي
بڑا بے ادب ہوں ، سزا چاہتا ہوں

tere ishq kii intahaa chaahataa huu.N
merii saadagii dekh kyaa chaahataa huu.N

sitam ho ki ho vaadaa-e-behijaabii
ko_ii baat sabr-aazamaa chaahataa huu.N

ye jannat mubaarak rahe zaahido.n ko
ki mai.n aap kaa saamanaa chaahataa huu.N

ko_ii dam kaa mehamaa.N huu.N ai ahal-e-mahafil
chiraaG-e-sahar huu.N, bujhaa chaahataa huu.N

bharii bazm me.n raaz kii baat kah dii
ba.Daa be-adab huu.N, sazaa chaahataa huu.N

English Translation
By Dr. M.A.K. Khalil
Completion of your Love is what I desire
Look at my sincerity what little I desire
It may be oppression or the promise of unveiling
Something testing my perseverance I desire
May the pious be happy with this Paradise
Only to see your Countenance I desire
Though I am but a tiny little heart I am so bold
To hear the same “Lan taranâ ” I desire
O assembly’s companions! I am existing only for a few moments
I am the dawn’s candle, I am about to be extinguished
I have divulged the secret in the full assembly
I am very insolent, punishment I desire

English Translation by unknown.

I want to have the extremes of your Love,
See, how silly am I, wishing for unachievable.

I don’t care if you maltreat me or promise to unveil your beauty,
I just want something unbearable to test my fortitude

Let the God fearing people be dwelling in the paradise,
For, instead I want to be face to face with you.
( I don’t want to go to paradise but want to observe the Divine Beauty)

O fellows, I am here for a few moments, as a gust,
Like morning star I will fade and vanish in a few moments.

I disclosed the secret in public,
I need to be punished for being so rude.
