Beautiful Qawwal by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, words, by Hz. Mevlana.
Too Karimi Mun Kamina Barda Um – تو کریمی، من کمینہ بردہ عم
تو کریمی، من کمینہ بردہ عم
لیکں از لطف شمار پروردہ عم
زندگی آمد، برائے بندگی
زندگی بے بندگی شرمندگی
یاد اے او سرمایہ ایماں بو ند
ھر جگہ، از یاد او سلطاں بوند
سید و سرور محمد(صلی اللا علیہ وسلم) نور جاں
معتر او بھتر شفیع مجرمان
چوں محمد(صلی اللا علیہ وسلم) پاک شد از نار او دود
ھر کجا روح کرد وج اوللا بود
شھباز لاماکانی جان او
رحمت لل عالعمیں در شان او
معترین او بھترین انبیاہ
جز محمد(صلی اللا علیہ وسلم) نیست در ارض و سماں
آں محمد(صلی اللا علیہ وسلم) حامر او محمود شد
شکل عابد،صورت معبود شد
اولیاہ، اللا ہ اللا اولیاہ،
یعنی دید پیر، دید کبریاہ
ھرکہ پیر او زات حق راہ یک نہ دید
نے مرید او نے مرید او نے مرید
مولوی ھر گز نہ شر مولائے روم
تا غلام شمس تبریزی نہ شد
You are the gracious and I am the ignoble, standing at your door.
You are my cherisher.
Life is only for devotion.
Life without devotion (worship or total submission) is disgrace.
Remembrance of him is the foundation of faith.
The beggars are like kings due to his rememberance.
Mohammad (pbuh) was purified of worldly things, he got this reward:
God said to him, Whatever direction you face your prayer,
My face is to that direction.
His soul like an eagle of Heaven as God called him Mercy for all the creations of God.
There is no greater or better of all the prophets than Mohammad (pbuh).
He is the praise of God and therefore has been praised very much.
He is the reflection of God in the shape of a worshipper of God.
The friends of God are like God because God is their friend and in this way he who has seen his spiritual leader, sees God.
one who doesn’t see his spiritual leader as God is not a true spiritual disciple.
There is no greater or better of all the prophets than Mohammad (S.A.W)*.
* SallaAllah-u-Alaih-e-Wasslam (Peace be upon him)
Auliyah Allah O Allah Auliyah
Yani Deed E Peer Deed E Kibriyah
Her Ka Peer O Zaat Haqra Aik Na Deed
Nai Mureed O Nai Mureed O Nai Mureed
Maulvi Hargiz Na Shud Maula E Rum
Ta Ghulaam E Shams Tabraizi Na Shud
Maulvi** could never be Maula-i-Rum*** if he had not devoted himself to Shams Tabrizi****
** Maulana Rumi, who was called Maulvi because he was just a simple religious leader
*** to be recognized as spiritual leader or Master
****The spiritual Master of Maulana Rumi (Rehmatullah-e-Alayeh)
You are the Gracious One and I am the ignoble,
Now waiting at Your door Oh my Cherisher
With devotion life becomes beauteous,
And without, what is life but disgrace
Remembrance of Him is the foundation of faith,
Beggars transform into kings due to His Remembrance.
Liege lord, Oh Muhammad you are the light of our lives,
The mighty and the best intercessor of the wrong-doers
Since Muhammad was purified of worldly things,
Whatever direction He turned is found the Face of Allah
The noble soul of his is like a falcon of the highest heavens
Being ‘the mercy of the worlds’ is his eminence
The mightiest and the best of all Prophets is he,
Except Muhammad in land or sky there is none worthy
He is the praise of God, divinely praised in abundant
He is the reflection of God in the shape of a worshiping servant
The friends of God are like God because God is their friend
And in this way he who has seen his Master, has seen God’s Glory
If one doesn’t see his spiritual Master as reflection of God
He is not a disciple, not a disciple, not a disciple!
Mevlana could never be Mevlana Rumi
If he had not devoted himself to Shams e Tabrizi.
