Persian Poetry from Ramooz-e-Bekhudi — Arz-e-haal-e-musanaf Bahazoor REHMATAL LILAALEMEEN (Part 1)

رموزِ بیخودی
عرض حال مصنف بحضور رحمة للعالمین
The authors memorial to Him who is a mercy to all living beings
ای ظہور تو شباب زندگی
جلوہ ات تعبیر خواب زندگی
ای زمین از بارگاہت ارجمند
آسمان از بوسۂ بامت بلند
شش جہت روشن ز تاب روی تو
ترک و تاجیک و عرب ہندوی تو
از تو بالا پایۂ این کائنات
فقر تو سرمایۂ این کائنات
در جہان شمع حیات افروختی
بندگان را خواجگی آموختی
بی تو از نابودمندیہا خجل
پیکران این سرای آب و گل
تا دم تو آتشے از گل گشود
تودہ ہای خاک را آدم نمود
ذرہ دامن گیر مہر و ماہ شد
یعنی از نیروی خویش آگاہ شد
تا مرا افتاد بر رویت نظر
از اب و ام گشتۂ ئی محبوب تر
عشق در من آتشی افروخت است
فرصتش بادا کہ جانم سوخت است
نالہ ئی مانند نی سامان من
آن چراغ خانۂ ویران من
از غم پنہان نگفتن مشکل است
بادہ در مینا نہفتن مشکل است
مسلم از سر نبی بیگانہ شد
باز این بیت الحرم بتخانہ شد
از منات و لات و عزی و ھبل
ہر یکی دارد بتی اندر بغل
شیخ ما از برہمن کافر تر است
زانکہ او را سومنات اندر سر است
رخت ہستی از عرب برچیدہ ئی
در خمستان عجم خوابیدہ ئی
شل ز برفاب عجم اعضای او
سرد تر از اشک او صہبای او
ہمچو کافر از اجل ترسندہ ئی
سینہ اش فارغ ز قلب زندہ ئی
نعشش از پیش طبیبان بردہ ام
در حضور مصطفی آوردہ ام
مردہ بود از آب حیوان گفتمش
سری از اسرار قرآن گفتمش
داستانی گفتم از یاران نجد
نکہتی آوردم از بستان نجد
محفل از شمع نوا افروختم
قوم را رمز حیات آموختم

O thou, whose manifesting was the youth
Of strenuous life, whose bright epiphany
Told the interpretation of lifes dreams,
Earth attained honour, having held thy court,
And heaven glory, having kissed thy roof.
Thy face illumes the six‐directioned world;
Turk, Tajik, Arab—all thy servants are.
Whatever things have being, find in thee
True exaltation, and thy poverty
Is their abundant riches. In this world
Thou litst the lamp of life, as thou didst teach
Gods servitors a godly mastery.
Without thee, whatsoever form indwelt
This habitat of water and of clay
Was put to shame in utter bankruptcy;
Till, when thy breath drew fire from the cold
And Adam made of earths dead particles,
Each atom caught the skirts of sun and moon,
Suddenly conscious of its inward strength.
Since first my gaze alighted on thy face
Dearer than father and dear mother thou
Art grown to me. Thy love hath lit a flame
Within my heart; ah, let it work at ease.
For all my spirit is consumed in me,
And my sole chattel is a reed‐like sigh,
The lantern flickering in my ruined house.
It is not possible not to declare
This hidden grief; it is not possible
To veil the wine in the translucent cup.
But now the Muslim is estranged a new
Unto the Prophets secret; now once more
Gods sanctuary is an idols shrine;
Manat and Lat, Hubal and Uzza each
Carries an idol to his bosom clasped;
Our shaykh no Brahman is so infidel,
Seeking his Somnath stands within his head.
Arabia deserted, he is gone
With all his beings baggage, slumberous
To drowse in Persias wine‐vault. Persias
Has set his limbs a‐shiver; his thin wine
Rune colder than his tears. As timorous
Of death as any infidel, his breast
Is hollow, empty of a living heart.
I bore him lifeless from the doctors hands
And brought him to the Prophets presence;
He was; I told him of the Fount of Life,
I spoke with him upon a mystery
O the Quran, a tale of the Beloved
Of Najd; I brought to him a perfume sweet
Pressed from the roses of Arabia.
The Candle of my music lit the throng;
I taught the people lifes enigma
