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.

I decided to translate one more beautiful poem ‘Mohabbat’ by Amjad Islam Amjad. Here’s the translation:

Tulips'n'Dew

Love like dew—–
Slakes thirst of a petal’s rim
Elevate colors in the sepal’s brim;
Hums, smiles glitters at dawn
Boondocks feel divine drawn,
When in love————-
Love———as dew!

Love like cloud—-
Showers over the heartland
Garden’s elfin spot swings n beam
Flora flings on ever barren land;
Love enlivens the hearts who
Are like lifeless grave seam.
Love like cloud———

Love like fire——-
When gleam in the dull hearts
Hearts enliven;
Heat of love has strange secret
The more it be ablaze,
Life’s essence enlivens;
Gather n scatter on the shore of hearts,
Love like surf,
Love like turf
Love like fire.

Love akin to dream—-
Descending in eyes like moon
Stars of desires shimmer akin to
State of restless heart can’t be identified.
On the tree of love, dream birds descend
The branches wake up;
When weary stars chat to the world
The candles light in the forlorn eyes
Love burns like water lamps.
Love akin to dream———

Love like pang——-
Exist like mark of bygone seasons
Exists like the grown isolation;
When wicks flicker on the eaves
Winds of hopelessness heaves
When no tap no rap is felt in the lane
When sense of someone is in vain
When shoulder shatter with heartache
It caresses, like a well-wisher;
Hovers in the space for long
Like the dust;
Love like pain.

محبت اوس کی صورت
پیاسی پنکھڑی کے ہونٹ کو سیراب کرتی ہے
گلوں کی آستینوں میں انوکھے رنگ بھرتی ہے
سحر کے جھٹپٹے میں گنگناتی، مسکراتی جگمگاتی ہے
محبت کے دنوں میں دشت بھی محسوس ہوتا ہے
کسی فردوس کی صورت
محبت اوس کی صورت
 
محبت ابر کی صورت
دلوں کی سر زمیں پہ گھر کے آتی ہے اور برستی ہے
چمن کا ذرہ زرہ جھومتا ہے مسکراتا ہے
ازل کی بے نمو مٹی میں سبزہ سر اُٹھاتا ہے
محبت اُن کو بھی آباد اور شاداب کرتی ہے
جو دل ہیں قبر کی صورت
محبت ابر کی صورت
 
محبت آگ کی صورت
بجھے سینوں میں جلتی ہے تودل بیدار ہوتے ہیں
محبت کی تپش میں کچھ عجب اسرار ہوتے ہیں
کہ جتنا یہ بھڑکتی ہے عروسِ جاں مہکتی ہے
دلوں کے ساحلوں پہ جمع ہوتی اور بکھرتی ہے
محبت جھاگ کی صورت
محبت آگ کی صورت
 
محبت خواب کی صورت
نگاہوں میں اُترتی ہے کسی مہتاب کی صورت
ستارے آرزو کے اس طرح سے جگمگاتے ہیں
کہ پہچانی نہیں جاتی دلِ بے تاب کی صورت
محبت کے شجر پرخواب کے پنچھی اُترتے ہیں
تو شاخیں جاگ اُٹھتی ہیں
تھکے ہارے ستارے جب زمیں سے بات کرتے ہیں
تو کب کی منتظر آنکھوں میں شمعیں جاگ اُٹھتی ہیں
محبت ان میں جلتی ہے چراغِ آب کی صورت
محبت خواب کی صورت
 
محبت درد کی صورت
گزشتہ موسموں کا استعارہ بن کے رہتی ہے
شبانِ ہجر میںروشن ستارہ بن کے رہتی ہے
منڈیروں پر چراغوں کی لوئیں جب تھرتھر اتی ہیں
نگر میں نا امیدی کی ہوئیں سنسناتی ہیں
گلی جب کوئی آہٹ کوئی سایہ نہیں رہتا
دکھے دل کے لئے جب کوئی دھوکا نہیں رہتا
غموں کے بوجھ سے جب ٹوٹنے لگتے ہیں شانے تو
یہ اُن پہ ہاتھ رکھتی ہے
کسی ہمدرد کی صورت
گزر جاتے ہیں سارے قافلے جب دل کی بستی سے
فضا میں تیرتی ہے دیر تک یہ
گرد کی صورت
محبت درد کی صورت

Here’s the original piece in Urdu:

Muhabbat Oss ki surat
Pyasi Pankhari kay hont ko sairab karti hay
Guloon kay Aasteno may anokhay rang bharti hay
Sahar kay Jhaptay may,Gungunati , Muskurati , Jagmagati hay
Muhabbat kay dino may dasht bhi mahsoos hota hay
Kisi Ferdos ki surat
Muhabbat Oss ki surat
Muhabbat abur ki surat

Dilo’n ki sarzamen pay gher kay ati or barasti hay
Chaman ka zara zara jhomta hay, Muskurata hay
Azal ki baynamo mitti may sabza sar uthata hay
Muhabbat unko bhi abad aur shadab karti hay
Jo dil hain qabar ki surat
Muhabbat abur ki Surat
Muhabbat Aag ki Surat!

Bujhay seeno may jalti hay tu dil baidar hoty hain
Muhabbat ki tapish mein kuch ajab israr hotay hain
Kay jitna bhi bharakti hay, Urosay Jaan Mahakti hay
Dilon kay sahilon par jama hoti aur bekharti hay
Muhabbat jhaag ki surat
Muhabbat, Aag ki surat
Muhabbat khuwab ki sorat
Neghao’n may utarti hay kisi mahtab ki surat
Setary Arzoo kay is tarha say jagmagaty hain
Kay pahchani nahi jati Dil e baytab ki surat!
Muhabbat kay shajar par khuwab kay panche utarty hain
Tu shakhain jaag uthti hain
Thakay haray setay jab zameen say baat karty hain
Tu kab ki Muntazir Ankhon may Shamain Jaag uthti hain
Muhabbat Un mein jalti hay Charagh E Aab ki surat
Muhabbat, Khuwab ki Surat!
Muhabbat dard ki surat

Guzishta mosomon ka istayarah ban kay rahti hay
Shaban E hijir mein, Roshin setara ban kay rahti hay
Munderon par charaghon ki loain jab thatharati hain
Nigar mein na umeedi ki hawain sunsunati hain
Gale mein jab koe ahat, koe saya nahi rahta
Dukhay dil kay lia jab koe bhi dhoka nahi rahta
Ghamon kay boojh say jab totnay lagtay hain shany tu
Ya in par hath rakhti hay
Kisi hamdard ki surat!
Guzar jati hain sary qaflay jab dil ki basti say
Fiza mein tayti hay dair tak
Ya gard ki surat,
Muhabbat,. Dard ki surat……
