Lively mustard blossoming in the field so
Mango buds spring up, other flowers too
The nightingale chants bough to bough
Maiden engaged to beautify self though
Gardener girls bring fragranced flowers
Every one brings in hand lively flowers
At Nizamuddind’s door lay the flowers
He promised to come in love though
It has been years waiting for him
Maiden is busy to beautify self though
Sakal bun (or Saghan bhun) phool rahi sarson,
Sakal bun phool rahi…..
Umbva phutay, tesu phulay, koyal bolay daar daar,
Aur gori karat singaar,
Malaniyan gadhwa lay aayin karson,
Sakal bun phool rahi…..
Tarah tarah kay phool lagaaye,
Lay gadhwa haathan mein aaye.
Nijamudin kay darwazay par,
Aawan keh gaye aashaq rung,
Aur beet gaye barson.
Sakal bun phool rahi sarson.
Hold thy bow and arrow and shoot at me
I’ll fall in your arms; will bond you and me
May cravings of union be of few moments
* ** ** *******
Where the love’s arrow are shed by my deity
All healers forget their wisdom and capability
Which place was it where we were at night?
Everywhere dance in exaltation there at night
What a brow, what a posture, what a beauty
Was heart stirring where we were at night?
We lost in her charm; while foes at guard
We were wordless, where we were at night
Muhammad illumined the place there Khusro
The Al-mighty was Guest of honor, there
Where we were at night
The narrator gave his life away there Khusro
Amazing ambiance where we were at night
Maulana Rumi (30 September 1207 – 17 December 1273)
Shams al-Din Mohammad (1185–1248) Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra) ad. 1248 was an Iranian Sufi mystic born in the city of Tabriz in Iranian Azerbaijan. He is responsible for initiating Mawlana Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi (rah), usually known as Rumi in the West, into Islamic mysticism, and is immortalized by Rumi’s poetry collection Diwan-e Shams-e Tabriz-i (“The works Shams of Tabriz “) (Ra). Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra) lived together with Rumi in Koyna in present day Turkey, for several years, and is also known to have traveled to Damascus in modern Syria.After several years with Rumi, Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra) disappeared from the pages of history quite suddenly. It is unknown what happened to him after his departure from Rumi, and there are several sites that claim to his grave, one in a remote region of the Karakoram in Northern Pakistan at a place called Ziarat, near the village Shimshall, and another in the same city that was buried in Rumi: Konya, Turkey. Rumi’s love for Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra), and his grief at his death, found expression in an outpouring of music, dance, and lyrics. Rumi himself left Konya and went searching for Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra), traveled far Damascus before realizing that Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra) and himself were, in fact, “the same” As the years passed, Rumi attributed more and more of his own poetry to Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Raz), as a sign of love for his deceased friend and master. In fact, it soon becomes clear in reading Rumi that Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Raz), was elevated to a symbol of God’s love for humanity, and that Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra), was a Sun (“Shams” is Arabic for “sun”) shining the Light of God on Rumi.The image of Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra), which is transmitted in the later Sufi tradition is that of an ecstatic wandering mystic teacher for Rumi. While the relationship between Rumi and Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Raz), is certainly one of the finest in the history of Islamic mysticism, the person of Shams is different from the image being projected onto him. The Maqalat Shams (oral discourses), which are now provided, Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra), comes across as a scholar, who was especially interested in proving his devotion to the Prophet Muhammad (S). He repeatedly criticizes philosophers and other mystics who tried to elevate themselves above the prophet of Islam.In the contemporary period Tabrezi Shams, there is confusion over the name “Shams” as there were three persons existing at the same time. This was Tabrezi Shams, Ismaili PIR (Dai) and Ismaili Imam Shamsuddin Shams Sabzwari.The tomb in Multan, Pakistan is Pir Shams Sabzwari, but it is known as Shams Tabrez. Nobody knows exactly where the tomb of Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(GAC) is located.

Maulana (religious teacher) Rumi could never have become Maula Rumi
Without submitting to Spiritual Guide Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra)
Hussein prostrated himself to be beheaded
He proved the extreme height of divine love
Seeing the intensity of thirst of Prophet’s clan
Hussein never then laid a hand on water can
Every opportunity was unveiled by Hussein
Of; sacrifice, endurance, serenity and death
Life was shattered and scattered in pieces
Hussein glorified the spirit of existence
Rose scent that flows in Muslim’s essence
Was planted in desert of Karbala by Hussein
What so ever pledge be of the loved Prophet
With Allah; was proved factual by Hussein
Whenever the loyal incident is remembered
Razia heaved a sigh in gloominess of Hussein
“Human love is given to illuminate by its sincerity the heart of another, there is no greater power to inspire than the power of love… Love is given to inspire divine love in the heart of man, and all the beauty that man sees on earth is beauty created by the power of love, and by the power of love he learns to recognize it as a reflection of the beauty of heaven. Thus may earth become heaven, and heaven and earth one single vision of the glory of God.”
