• Hoga Kasu Deewar Ke Saaye Mein Para, Mir;
    Kya Kaam Mohabbat Se Uss Aaraam Talab Ko!

    Kasu = Some
    ~ Mir Taqi Mir
  • Woh Soorat Ka Wahm Aur Deewangi;
    Lagi Karne Dar Parda Be-ganagi!
    Na Dekhe Meri Oar Uas Pyaar Se;
    Gharibana Sar Maare Deewar Se!

    Gharibana = Despairingly
    ~ Mir Taqi Mir
  • Qahar To Yeh Hai Ke Kafir Ko Milein Hoor-o-Qasoor;<br />
Aur Bechaare Musalmaan Ko Faqt Waada-e-Hoor!
<br /><br />
Translation:<br />
How cruel that Kafirs are granted houries here on earth;<br />
The poor Muslims have to wait for the promised nymphs above!
