Amir Khusro-Chhap tilak sab cheeni ray mosay naina milaikay

Ab'ul Hasan Yamīn al-Dīn Khusro (1253-1325 CE), better known as Amīr Khusro was a great scholar and a great sufi poet. He was a spiritual disciple of Nizam ud din Auliya. He was also known as a father of Qawali and also originates khayal and tarana in music. His great invention was tabla. In todays post I have selected few verse from his Qalam written in Urdu with its English translation.

Chhap tilak sab cheeni ray mosay naina milaikay
Chhap tilak sab cheeni ray mosay naina milaikay
Prem bhatee ka madhva pilaikay
Matvali kar leeni ray mosay naina milaikay
Gori gori bayyan, hari hari churiyan
Bayyan pakar dhar leeni ray mosay naina milaikay
Bal bal jaaon mein toray rang rajwa
Apni see kar leeni ray mosay naina milaikay
Khusrau Nijaam kay bal bal jayyiye
Mohay Suhaagan keeni ray mosay naina milaikay
Chhap tilak sab cheeni ray mosay naina milaikay

English Translation

You've taken away my looks, my identity, by just a glance.
By making me drink the wine of love-potion,
You've intoxicated me by just a glance;
My fair, delicate wrists with green bangles in them,
Have been held tightly by you with just a glance.
I give my life to you, Oh my cloth-dyer,
You've dyed me in yourself, by just a glance.
I give my whole life to you Oh, Nizam,
You've made me your bride, by just a glance.

Very nice sad poetry.
I am sharing some of my favorite sad poetry here.



Dil ki baat labon par la kar ab tak ham dukh sehte hain
Ham ne suna tha is basti mein dil wale bi rehte hain

Beet gya sawan ka mahena mosam ne nazrain badlen
Lekin in payasi aankhon se ab tak aansoo behte hain

Aik hmain awara kehna koi bara ilzam nahi
Dunya wale dil walon ko aur bohat kuch kehte hain

Jin ki khatar shehr bi chora jin ke liye badnaam hoye
Aaj wohi ham se begane begane se rehte hain

Wo jo abi is rah guzar se chak greban guzra tha
Us awara dewane ko jalib jalib kehte hain
