Insaan Khuda sey;

Jis ko chahtay they ussi ko Gawaya

Khuda sey Roothtay hain Kay

Us Jaisa ek aur kyon nahi banaya.

Khuda Insaan Sey;

Ek hi To banaya hai

Is liya to chaha hai

Ek bhi na hoti

To Chahat bhi na hoti.


Sigh! Translation -:-(


Man complaining to God:

The One I loved, I Lost

Disappointed I am with GOD

Why a duplicate was not made!?*

God responding to Man;

One was meant to be made

Hence love remained

If even one was not to be

Love would cease to sway.


*yes- this is a parody translation- the real thing is a bore.

Format and Title borrowed from Iqbal's Shikwa and Jawab-e-Shikwa.
