In Search of the Divine - Hazrat Zaheen Shah Taji

English Translation:

Calling out Maula Maula! Maula still escapes us.
We only play with words,meaning still escapes us.

Who understands the word Water as Water,is a fool,
He will keep chanting Water Water and will die of thirst.

By chanting Fire Fire,the lips don't feel the heat,
Place one ember on the lips,then see how they burn.

He who contents himself with names,end up loosing the Named.
The fools who puts in no effort amuse themselves with Name 


Maula-Maula laakh pukaare, Maula haath na aaye
Lafzon se hum khel rahe hain,maa'na haath na aaye

Jo pani ke naam ko pani jaane,naadaani hai
Pani-pani rat'te rat'te,pyaasa hi mr jaaye

Shola-shola rat'te-rat'te,lab pe aanch na aaye
Ik chingaari lab par rakh lo,lab fauran jal jaaye

Ism pe Qaane hone waala aur musamma khone waala
Kaam na karne waala moorakh bas naam se ji bahlaye

Recital: Ustad Farid Ayaz & Abu Muhammad Qawwal
Poet: Hazrat Zaheen Shah Taji
