Na Man Behooda Girde

Singer: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
Poet: Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi

نہ من بيہوده گرد کوچه و بازار می گردم

[Na man behuda girde koocha-o-bazaar mi gardam]

Not frivolously, around the alleys and bazaars, I whirl

 

مذاق عاشقی دارم پئے ديدار می گردم

[Mazak-e-ashqi daram pae didar mi gardam]

Lover’s temperament, I have – to have one glimpse of my Beloved, I whirl.

 

خدايا رحم کن بر من پريشان وار می گردم

[Khudaya reham kun bar mann pareeshaan waar mi gardam]

O, God! Have mercy on me! Disturbed, I whirl.

 

خطا کارم گناہ گارم به حال زار می گردم

[Khataa kaaram gunah gaaram bahaal-e-zaar mi gardam]

I am guilty, I am sinful: in this wretched state, I whirl.

 

شراب شوق می نوشم به گرد يار می گردم

[Sharaab-e-shouq mi nousham bagird-e-yaar mi gardam]

Desire’s wine I imbibe; around the Friend, I whirl.

 

سخن مستانه می گويم ولے هوشيار می گردم

[Sukhan mastana mi goyam bhale hushyaar mi gardam]

Intoxicated speech, I utter, even while soberly, I whirl.

 

گہےخندم گہے گريم گہے افتم گہے خيزم

[Gahe khandam gahe giriyam gahe uftam gahe khezam]

Sometimes I laugh, weep sometimes; sometimes I fall, rise sometimes.

 

مسيحا در دلم پيدا و من بيمار می گردم

[Maseeha dar dilam paida wa mann beemaar mi gardam]

Messiah, in my heart, I bear; and I, the infirm, whirl.

 

بیا جاناں عنایت کن تو مولانائے رومی را

[Bayaan jaanan inayat kun to molana-e-rumi ra]

Come, O Beloved! Indulge Maulana Rumi!

 

غلام شمس تبریزم قلندروار می گردم

[Ghulam-e-shams tabrezam qalandar war mi gardam]

Shams Tabrizi’s slave I am; like a qalandar, I whirl.
