Tundi-e- Baad-E-Mukhalif se na ghabra, ae Uqaab;
Yeh to chalti hai tujhe uncha udane ke liye.
“You don’t get frightened of these furious, violent winds, Oh Eagle! These blow only to make you fly higher.”
Nahin tera nasheman Qasr-e-Sultani ke gumbad par;
Tu shahi hai, basera kar paharon ki chattano par.
“You don’t have to make your nest on the dome of Queen’s palace, Oh Eagle, you are royal, choose to reside on the peaks of mountains.”

Keh tere bahr ki mojon main iztirab naheen.
“May God bless you with some storm! Because the waves in your ocean (of self) are devoid of agitation (turmoil)”
Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqdeer se pehle
Khuda bande se khud pooche bata teri raza kya hai.
“Elevate yourself so high that even God, before issuing every decree of destiny, should ask you: Tell me, what is your intent?”
