MAIN SAHIB-e-IMAAN NAHEE

February 24, 2007

MAIN EK MUDAT SAY HALAT-E-HAZAR MAI HOON
MUJHAY RAH-O-SAFAR SAY KOI KAAM NAHEE
MAIN EK MUDAT SAY APNI HEE KHOJ MAIN HOON
MUJHAY MANZIL KAY NISHAAN SAY KOI KAAM NAHEE
MUJHAY RAKHT-O-RAHZAN SAY KOI KAAM NAHEE

ZANGEER-E-ZAKHM QADMON MAIN HAREE HAI AB TAK
PHIR SAYYAD KAY CHUNGAL MAIN KYUN GAWAIN KHUD KO
NIGHA MEREE, KISEE CHARAY PAY KYUN DAY DASTAK
KYUN KISEE RAAZ KA HAMRAAZ JATAIN KHUD KO
MISL-E-DAMAN KYUN HAR BAR PHAILAIN KHUD KO

MAIN EK BAAGHI, ATA’AT MERA IMAN NAHEE
RAH-O-RASM SAY, ULFAT SAY MUJHAY KAAM NAHEE
MAIN ISHQ KAY LASHKAR KA AALAMDAAR NAHEE
MERAY HATHOON MAIN BEWAFAEE KEE TALWAAR NAHEE

MAIN RAFAQAT KO IBADAT KAA DARJAA DAYDOON
MAGAR AFSOWS KAY MAIN SAHIB-E-IMAAN NAHEE.

Translation:

For long I am in stagnation
nothing to do with course or voyage
For long I am in quest of self
nothing to do with beacon of destination
nor to do with treasure or robber

Shackle of bruises are still crisp on limbs
why we waste ourselves again in hunter’s cage
why should my eyes knock on one’s face
Why deceit ourselves as porter of a secret
Why should we beg everytime
Just to get fake pennies of love.

I am a rebel, submission is not my virtue
neither to do with culture nor affection
I am not the doyen of army of devotion
I have no sword of treachery in my hand either

I would level friendship with worship
but alas ! I am not a believer.

    I maybe sidtracking but I know an artist who uses only two letters. All her life she used them because they had a meaning for her.
    Ain for Ibadat.
    Qhaf for Qiraat.
    She didn’t write these words entirely because she thought this would somehow dishonour what she meant. When you behold a passion for being faithful, things jsut click.
    But you could be passionate about being faithless too.
    I guess i am not making much sense.

    It has nothing to do with religion.

    And btw if you don’t have faith in yourself and still like to be called faithful then you are nothing but a hypocrite.
