MAUSAM HAI AASHIQAANA

mausam hai aashiqaana The weather is amorous
ae dil kahii.n se unko Oh heart, somewhere,
aise me.n DHuu.nRH laana... find him just like this [i.e., like the weather]!
mausam hai aashiqaana The weather is amorous
ae dil kahii.n se unko Oh heart, somewhere,
aise me.n DHuu.nRH laana... find him in just this state!
mausam hai aashiqaana The weather is amorous
kahana ke rut jawaan hai Say that the season is young,
aur ham taras rahe hai.n and I am longing for him.
kaalii ghaTa ke saaye The shadows of black clouds
phir hamko Das rahe hai.n are stinging me.
Dar hai na maar Daale I fear they will murder me
saawan ka kya THikaana... How can one rely on the rains?
mausam hai aashiqaana The weather is amorous.
suuraj kahii.n bhii jaa'e Wherever the sun may go,
tum par na dhuup aa'e sunlight doesn't come to you.
aa tumko pukaarte hai.n in gesuu'o.n pe saaye Come, the shadows on my hair are calling you.
aa jaa'o mai.n banaa duu.n Come, I will make
palko.n ka shaamiyaana... a canopy of my eyelashes...
mausam hai aashiqaana The weather is amorous.
firte hai.n ham akele I wander alone in circles;
baaho.n me.n koii le le someone take me in his arms!
aakhir koii kahaa.n tak tanhaa'iyo.n se khele After all, where can someone play with loneliness?
din ho ga'e hai.n zaalim The days have become cruel;
raate.n hai qaatilaana... the nights are murderous...
mausam hai aashiqaana The weather is amorous.
yeh raat yeh khaamoshii This night, this silence,
yeh khwaab se nazaare... these dream-like sights...
jugnuu hai ya zamiin par Are they fireflies, or are they
utare hu'e hai.n taare stars fallen to earth?
bekhwaab merii aa.nkhe.n My eyes are dreamless;
madhosh hai zamaana... the world is intoxicated...
mausam hai aashiqaana The weather is amorous.
mausam hai aashiqaana The weather is amorous
ae dil kahii.n se unko Oh heart, somewhere,
aise me.n DHuu.nRH laana... find him just so.

 

TEER-E-NAZAR

aaj ham apnii du'aa'o.n ka asar dekhe.nge Today I shall see the effects of my prayers:
tiir-e-nazar dekhe.nge zakhm-e-jigar dekhe.nge... I shall see glances like arrows and wounds of the heart...

aap to aa.nkh milaate hu'e sharmaate hai.n... Meeting my eyes, you are bashful;
aap to dil ke dhaDkane.n se bhii Dar jaate hai.n you fear even the beating of your heart.
phir bhii yeh zid hai ki ham zakhm-e-jigar dekhe.nge Even so, I'm determined to see the wounds of the heart.
tiir-e-nazar dekhe.nge zakhm-e-jigar dekhe.nge... I shall see glances like arrows and wounds of the heart...
pyaar karna dil-e-betaab bura hota hai... It is wrong for the weak of heart to love...
sunte aa'e hai.n ki yeh khwaab bura hota hai I have come knowing [hearing] that this dream is wrong.
aaj is khwaab kii taavii magar dekhe.nge Today if I see the passion of this dream,
tiir-e-nazar dekhe.nge zakhm-e-jigar dekhe.nge... I will see glances like arrows and wounds of the heart...
jaanleva hai muhabbat ka samaa.n aaj kii raat Tonight, love's view is deadly.
shamaa ho jaa'egii jal jalke dhu'aa.n aaj kii raat Tonight, a burning lamp shall become water and smoke
aaj kii raat bache.nge to sahar dekhe.nge... I shall survive tonight, I shall see the dawn...
tiir-e-nazar dekhe.nge zakhm-e-jigar dekhe.nge... I shall see glances like arrows and wounds of the heart...

ye chiraag bujh rahe hai.n... These lamps are going out,
mere saath jalte jalte... burning with me...
