Tajdaar-e-Haram

ताजदार-ए-हरम
King of the Sanctuary

क़िस्मत में मेरी चैन से जीना लिख दे!
डूबे न कभी
मेरा सफ़ीना लिख दे!
जन्नत भी गवारा है, मगर मेरे लिए
ऐ कातिब-ए-तक़दीर मदीना लिख दे

Write in my kismet to have a peaceful life!
Write that
the boat/book of my life never sinks!
Paradise is also acceptable to me, but,
ho, Writer of Destinies, write Medina!


ताजदार-ए-हरम [x2]
ताजदार-ए-हरम
हो निगाह-ए-करम
[both lines x2]
हम ग़रीबों के दिन
भी सँवर जाएँगे
हामी-ए-बेकसां
क्या कहेगा जहान
[both lines x2]
आपके दर से ख़ाली
अगर जाएँगे?
ताजदार-ए-हरम [x2]

King of the Sanctuary
King of the Sanctuary,
oh, (give us) a look of mercy!
[both lines x2]
(So that) for us too,
the days as destitute ones will be rectified
Oh patron of the poor,
what will the world say
[both lines x2]
if we were to go empty (handed)
from your doorstep?
King of the Sanctuary! [x2]


कोई अपना नहीं
ग़म के मारे हैं हम
[both lines x2]
आपके दर पे फ़रियाद
लाए हैं हम
हो निगाह-ए-करम
वरना चौखट पे हम
आपका नाम ले ले के मर जाएँगे
ताजदार-ए-हरम [x2]

We are stricken with grief,
(having) none of our own,
[both lines x2]
We have brought a petition for justice
upon your doorstep
Hey! A look of mercy!
Otherwise, on your door-frame,
we will die naming you
King of the Sanctuary! [x2]


क्या तुम से कहूँ अरब के कुँवर
तुम जानते हो मन की बतियाँ
दार-ए-फ़ुरक़त तो
आए उम्मी-लक़ब!
काटे न कटे हैं अब रतियाँ।
तोरी प्रीत में सुध बुध सब बिसरी
कब तक रहेगी यह बेखबरी।
गाहे बफ़िगन दुज़दीदाह नज़र
कभी सुन भी तो लो हमारी बतियाँ

What can I say about you, Prince of Arabia?
You know the talk of my heart
At the gallows of separation,
oh, you, Unlettered One, shall really come.
We have been passing the nights with difficulty.
In your affection, all memory is forgotten
for as long as this unawareness will remain.
Cast a furtive glance towards (us) sometime!
Just listen our words too, sometime!


आपके दर से कोई
न ख़ाली गया
[both lines x3]
अपने दामन को भर के सवाली गया [x2]
हो हबीब-ए-हज़ीं [x2]
पर भी आक़ा नज़र
वरना औराक़-ए-हस्ती
बिखर जाएँगे
[both sentences x2]
ताजदार-ए-हरम [x2]

No one ever returned
empty-handed from your door
[both lines x3]
the petitioner left having filled his lap [x2]
Ho! Upon the beloved of sadness (me),
Master, also a look!
Otherwise, the pages of my existence
will scatter
[both sentences x2]
King of the Sanctuary! [x2]

खौफ़-ए-तूफ़ान है
बिजलियों का है डर [x2]
