Hairat-e-ishq nahin, shauq junoon-posh nahin​

Be-hijabana chale aao mujhe hosh nahin…..​

Am neither thrilled nor disrupting at all

Come liberally, I’m not in senses at all

Rind jo mujh ko samajhte hain, unhein hosh nahin​

Maikada saaz hoon main maikada bardosh nahin​

Who think I’m a drunk aren’t in their senses

​I liven up the bar , not ruin; I’m in my senses

Kah gai kaan mein aa kar tere daaman ki hawa​​

Sahib-e-hosh wohi hai, ke jise hosh nahin​

Breeze softly whisper in my ear of thy coming

Who seems intoxicated, is actually in senses

Kabhi un mad-bhari aankhon se piya tha ek jaam​​

Aaj tak hosh nahin, hosh nahin, hosh nahin​

Those miraculous eyes once intoxicated me

Since that moment till now I’m not in senses

Mehw-e-tasbeeh hi to sab hain magar idraaq kahaan​​

Zindagi khud hi ibaadat hai magar hosh nahin​

One and all reciting on rosary with no awareness

Life is worship and divine, but no one’s in senses

Mil ke jis din se gaya hai koi ik baar ‘jigar’​​

Mujh ko ye waham hai jaise mera aagosh nahin ​

The day my love me me and went away, Jigar

I feel I have missing my heart and my senses

~ Jigar Muradabadi (1890–1960)



Couldn’t tell my upsetting feelings to her

So badly ruined; couldn’t clarify to her

Forgot to deem the lot in ardor and love

What I failed to ignore is her zeal and love

My tears failed to drench the fire of love

Couldn’t lessen fire she lighted, of her love

Whoever sees her loveliness and brilliance?

Fails to spoil her virtue, beauty and brilliance

How can wind blow my dust of her doorstep?

When she failed to let me go of her doorstep

dāstān-e-ġham-e-dil un ko sunā.ī na ga.ī

baat bigḌī thī kuchh aisī ki banā.ī na ga.ī

sab ko ham bhuul ga.e josh-e-junūñ meñ lekin

ik tirī yaad thī aisī jo bhulā.ī na ga.ī

ishq par kuchh na chalā dīda-e-tar kā qaabū

us ne jo aag lagā dī vo bujhā.ī na ga.ī

paḌ gayā husn-e-ruḳh-e-yār kā partav jis par

ḳhaak meñ mil ke bhī is dil kī safā.ī na ga.ī

kyā uThā.egī sabā ḳhaak mirī us dar se

ye qayāmat to ḳhud un se bhī uThā.ī na ga.ī


Enchanting eyes,embedding heart he left,

Awakening life, in deep slumber, he left;

Covering face himself from me, he left,

What was the haste and hurry, he hid and left;

Captivating my entire existence, he left,

Like stealing me from my being, he left;

He had come to soothe his craving of love,

Adding bright blaze to fire of love, he left;

Lips quivered mutely, he didn’t come

                                                              Before going apart, staring at me, he left!
