Sometimes we need to speak through our eyes...our heart...our soul...


(translation: Dr. Amanullah De Sondy)
Raaz-e ki baat mehfil mein kahe ya na kahe
Bas gaya hai koi  is dil mein kahe ya na kahe
It is indeed a secret…should one mention it in this congregation
Someone has entered the chambers of my heart, to state through words...or not

Nighaein milane ko ji chahta
Dilon jaan lutane ko ji chahta hai
My heart desires a union of the eyes
I want to lose and gain my heart and soul

Woh tauhmat jise ishq kehti hai dunya
Woh tauhmat uthane ko ji chahta hai
The ridicule and unworthiness that is charged to abundant love
It is my desire to uphold that ridicule and unworthiness

Kisi ke manane mein lazzat wo paayi
Ke pir rooth jaane ko ji chahta hai
The pleasure gained through resolving a lovers' tiff
It is my desire to return to that lovers’ tiff

Mere rooth jane ko ji chahta hai
It is my desire to leave in a huff

Dil-o jaan lutaane ko ji chahta hai
I want to lose and gain my heart and soul

Wo jalwa jo ojhal bhi hai saamne bhi
Wo jalwa churane ko jhi chahta hai
That charm/spark that disappears, hides behind veils, is ever so present
It is my desire to steal that spark…embody that spark

jis gari meri nighahon ko teri deed hui...
At the moment my gaze took action on meeting your eyes...union
wo garhi meray li'ay esh ki tamheed hui...
That was the moment I felt the liberation (of love)
jab kabhi mein ne tera chaand-e sa chehra dekha...
Whenever I gazed toward your face that glowed like moonlight
Eid ho ya ke na ho meray li'ay eid hu
Even if it was not the announcement of Eid, it was surely Eid for me!

Nighaein milane ko ji chahta
Dilon jaan lutane ko ji chahta hai
My heart desires a union of the eyes
I want to lose and gain my heart and soul
