The secret under this rotating dome is.... Translation of تم بتا دو راز جو اس گنبد گرداں ميں ہے


Translation

The bright sun is hidden, the night shows its face
The night's hair is spread on shoulders of the earth

This black dress is preparation for some one's mourning
Perhaps the Nature's assemblage for the sun is mourning

The sky is casting a spell over the talking lip
The night's magician is watching the awakened eye

The wind current is submerged in the river of silence
However, the tolling bell's sound comes from the distance

Heart which in love's turmoil is evading the world
Has dragged me here far from the maddening crowd

I am the spectator of the spectacle of disappointments
I am the associate of those sleeping in solitude's corner

O My restlessness! Wait and let me rest awhile
And let me shed a few tears at this habitation

O those steeped in a swoon, "Where are you?
Tell me something of the land where you live

Is that world also one of prevarication?
Is that world also one of denizens' struggle?

Is Man engulfed by sorrow in that land also?
Is Man's heart suppressed and helpless in that land also?

Does the moth burn itself in candle's love in that land also?
Does the tale of flower and nightingale exist in that garden also?

In this world a single hemistich perturbs the heart
Does there also the warmth of verse soften the heart?

This world's relations and alliances life's woes are
Are similar sharp thorns present in that garden also?

The daily bread and a million calamities this world has
Does the soul freedom from anxieties in that world has?

Are the thunder, the farmer, the harvest there also?
Are the caravan and the robber's fear there also?

Do birds collect bits of straw for nests there also?
Is the search for bricks and clay for house there also?

Are the humans unaware of their reality there also?
Are they after nations' and customs' discrimination there also

Does garden not cry at the nightingale's wail there also?
Like this world is there no sympathy in that world also?

Does the Paradise a garden or a restful mansion constitute?
Or does the Eternal Beauty's Unveiled Face it constitute ?

Does hell a method of burning away sins constitute?
Or it in flames of fire a way of discipline constitute?

Has walking given way to speedy flying in that world?
What is the secret of what is called death by denizens of this world?

Life eases the heart's restlessness in this world
Is human knowledge also restricted in that world?

Does the separated heart get satisfaction by sight there also?
Are "Lan Tar�n�" saying the ��rs of that land also

Does the soul get solace in longing there also?
Is man a victim of desire to learn there also ?

Ah! Is that land also filled with darkness?
Or with Love's light is completely illuminated?

Tell us what the secret under this rotating dome is
Death is a pricking sharp thorn in the human breast !

ORIGINAL (urdu)

مہر روشن چھپ گيا ، اٹھي نقاب روئے شام
شانہ ہستي پہ ہے بکھرا ہوا گيسوئے شام
يہ سيہ پوشي کي تياري کس کے غم ميں ہے
محفل قدرت مگر خورشيد کے ماتم ميں ہے
کر رہا ہے آسماں جادو لب گفتار پر
ساحر شب کي نظر ہے ديدہ بيدار پر
غوطہ زن درياے خاموشي ميں ہے موج ہوا
ہاں ، مگر اک دور سے آتي ہے آواز درا
دل کہ ہے بے تابي الفت ميں دنيا سے نفور
کھنچ لايا ہے مجھے ہنگامہ عالم سے دور
منظر حرماں نصيبي کا تماشائي ہوں ميں
ہم نشين خفتگان کنج تنہائي ہوں ميں
تھم ذرا بے تابي دل! بيٹھ جانے دے مجھے
اور اس بستي پہ چار آ نسو گرانے دے مجھے
اے مے غفلت کے سر مستو ، کہاں رہتے ہو تم
کچھ کہو اس ديس کي آ خر ، جہاں رہتے ہو تم
وہ بھي حيرت خانہ امروز و فردا ہے کوئي؟
اور پيکار عناصر کا تماشا ہے کوئي؟
آدمي واں بھي حصار غم ميں ہے محصور کيا؟
اس ولا يت ميں بھي ہے انساں کا دل مجبور کيا؟
واں بھي جل مرتا ہے سوز شمع پر پروانہ کيا؟
اس چمن ميں بھي گل و بلبل کا ہے افسانہ کيا؟
ياں تو اک مصرع ميں پہلو سے نکل جاتا ہے دل
شعر کي گر مي سے کيا واں بھي پگل جاتاہے دل؟
رشتہ و پيوند ياں کے جان کا آزار ہيں
اس گلستاں ميں بھي کيا ايسے نکيلے خار ہيں؟
اس جہاں ميں اک معيشت اور سو افتاد ہے
روح کيا اس ديس ميں اس فکر سے آزاد ہے؟
کيا وہاں بجلي بھي ہے ، دہقاں بھي ہے ، خرمن بھي ہے؟
قافلے والے بھي ہيں ، انديشہ رہزن بھي ہے؟
تنکے چنتے ہيں و ہاں بھي آ شياں کے واسطے؟
خشت و گل کي فکر ہوتي ہے مکاں کے واسطے؟
واں بھي انساں اپني اصليت سے بيگانے ہيں کيا؟
امتياز ملت و آئيں کے ديوانے ہيں کيا؟
واں بھي کيا فرياد بلبل پر چمن روتا نہيں؟
اس جہاں کي طرح واں بھي درد دل ہوتا نہيں؟
باغ ہے فردوس يا اک منزل آرام ہے؟
يا رخ بے پردہ حسن ازل کا نام ہے؟
کيا جہنم معصيت سوزي کي اک ترکيب ہے؟
آگ کے شعلوں ميں پنہاں مقصد تاويب ہے؟
کيا عوض رفتار کے اس ديس ميں پرواز ہے؟
موت کہتے ہيں جسے اہل زميں ، کيا راز ہے ؟
اضطراب دل کا ساماں ياں کي ہست و بود ہے
علم انساں اس ولايت ميں بھي کيا محدود ہے؟
ديد سے تسکين پاتا ہے دل مہجور بھي؟
'لن تراني' کہہ رہے ہيں يا وہاں کے طور بھي؟
جستجو ميں ہے وہاں بھي روح کو آرام کيا؟
واں بھي انساں ہے قتيل ذوق استفہام کيا؟
آہ! وہ کشور بھي تاريکي سے کيا معمور ہے؟
يا محبت کي تجلي سے سراپا نور ہے؟
تم بتا دو راز جو اس گنبد گرداں ميں ہے
موت اک چبھتا ہوا کانٹا دل انساں ميں ہے
