kabhi aye haqiqat-e-muntazar

video

(Ustad Nusrta Fateh Ali Khan Sings 'Kabhi aye Haqeeqat")

कभी ऐ हकीकत-ए-मुन्तज़र नज़र आ लिबास-ए-मजाज़ में 
की  हज़ारों सजदे तड़प रहे हैं तेरी ज़बीं-ए-नियाज़ में
[हकीकत-ए-मुन्तज़र = The Awaited Reality;  लिबास-ए-मजाज़  = In material robe; ज़बीं-ए-नियाज़= foreheads in supplication]
 
तरब आशना-ए-खुरूश हो , तू नवा है मरहम-ए-गोश हो 
वो सुरूद क्या के छिपा हुआ हो सुकूत-ए-पर्दा-ए-साज़ में
[ तरब  = pleasure; आशना-ए-खुरूश = friendship with tumult; नवा = sound/tune; सुरूद = melody; सुकूत = silence; पर्दा-ए-साज़ = behind the tune ]
 
तू बचा बचा के न रख इसे , तेरा आइना है वो आइना 
की शिकस्ता  हो तो अज़ीज़तर  है निगाह-ए-आइना साज़ में
[शिकस्ता = broken; अज़ीज़तर= better; निगाह-ए-आइना साज़ = in the eyes of maker of the mirror  ]
 
दम-ए-तौफ़ करमक-ए-शमा ने ये कहा के वो असर-ए-कुहन 
न तेरी हिकायत-ए-सोज़ में, न मेरी हदीस-ए-गुदाज़ में
[ दम-ए-तौफ़ = during circumbulation; करमक-ए-शमा = the moth to the fire; असर-ए-कुहन = the old effect; हिकायत-ए-सोज़  = stories of sorrows; हदीस-ए-गुदाज़ = heart melting tales ]
 
न कहीं जहाँ में अमां मिली, जो अमां मिली तो कहाँ मिली 
मेरी जुर्म-ए-खानाखाराब को , तेरे अफ़व-ए-बन्दानवाज़  में
[ अमां  = protection/security; जुर्म-ए-खानाखाराब = crime of destruction; अफ़व-ए-बन्दानवाज़ = in the grace of almighty]
 
न वो इश्क में रहीं गर्मियां, न वो हुस्न में रहीं शोखियाँ 
न वो गजनवी में तड़प रही, न वो ख़म है ज़ुल्फ़-ए-अयाज़ में 
 
जो मैं सर-बसज्दा हुआ कभी तो, ज़मीं से आने लगी सदा 
तेरा दिल तो है सनम आशना, तुझे क्या मिलेगा नमाज़ में
[सर-बसज्दा =head  in prostration; सदा = call/sound; सनम आशना = friends of idols ]
 
'इकबाल'

Adding a makhta of my own :

तवाफ़-ए-दैर-ओ -हरम हुए, सुनी न अपनी दिल की सदा
तू रहा हमेशा साथ मेरे, मैं ढूंढता रहा तुझे रिवाज़ में

Kabhi Ae Haqiqat-e-Muntazir! Nazar Aa Libaas-e-Majaaz Mein
Ke Hazaar Sajde Tadap Rahe Hain Meri Jabeen-e-Niyaaz Mein
 
Tarb Ashnay-e-Kharosh Ho, Tu Nawa Hai Mehram-e-Gosh Ho
Woh Surood Kya Ke Chupaa Huwa Ho Sakoot-e-Pardaa-e-Saaz Mein
 
Tu Bachaa Bachaa Ke Na Rakh Isse, Tera Aaeenaa Hai Woh Aaeenaa
Ke Shikast Ho To Aziztar Hai Nigaah-e-Aaeenaa Saaz Mein
 
Dam-e-Tauf Karmak-e-Shama Ne Ye Kaha Ke Woh Asar-e-Kahan
Na Teri Hikaayat-e-Soz Mein, Na Meri Hadees-e-Gudaz Mein
 
Na Kaheen Jahaan Mein Amaan Mili, Jo Amaan Mili To Kahaan Mili
Mere Jurm-e-Khaana Kharab Ko Tere Ufuw-e-Banda Nawaaz Mein
 
Na Woh Ishq Mein Raheen Garmiyaan, Na Woh Husn Mein Raheen Shokhiyan
Na Woh Ghaznavi Mein Tadap Rahi, Na Kham Hai Zulf-e-Ayaaz Mein
 
Jo Mein Sar Ba-sajda Huwa Kabhi To Zameen Se Ane Lagi Sada
Tera Dil To Hai Sanam Aashna, Tujhe Kya Mile Ga Namaaz Mein
 
'Iqbaal'

Adding a makhta of my own :

tawaaf-e-dair-o-haram kiye, kabhi suni na apne dil ke sada
tu raha hamesha saath mere , main dhonndhata raha riwaaz mein

The below mentioned translation is taken from here 

For once, O awaited Reality, reveal Yourself in a form material,
For a thousand prostrations are quivering eagerly in my submissive brow.
 
Know the pleasure of tumult: thou art a tune consort with the ear!
What is that melody worth, which hides itself in the silent chords of the harp.
 
Do not try to protect them, your mirror is the mirror
Which would be dearer in the Maker's eye if they broken are
 
During circumambulation the moth exclaimed, "Those past effects
Neither in your story of pathos, nor in my tale of love are"
 
My dark misdeeds found no refuge in the wide world
The only refuge they found was in Your Gracious Forgiveness
 
Neither love has that warmth, nor beauty has that humour
Neither that restlessness in Ghaznavi nor those curls in the hair locks of Ayaz are
 
Even as I laid down my head in prostration a cry arose from the ground:
Your heart is in materialism, no rewards for your prayers are.

 I circumbulated the temples and mosques; never did I listen to the call of heart
you were always with me; and I was searching for you in traditions.
