Urdu Roman Text English Translation
Lab pe aatii hai Duaa bann ke Tamanna Meri… From the Lips comes a Prayer in the form of a Desire
Zindagii Shamma ki Surat ho Khudayaa Meri…. My life should emulate a Candle, Oh God
Duur Duniya ka Mere dam se Andheraa ho jaaye… Lift the Worldly Darkness due to my efforts
Her jaga Mere Chamakne se Ujaalaa ho jaaye… Every place should be enlightened by my Light
Ho Mere dam se Yun hi Mere Watan ki Zeenat… My life should decorate my Homeland similar to
Jis tarah Phool se hoti hai Chaman ki Zeenat… Similar to, a flower decorating a Garden
Zindagii ho Meri, Parawaane ki Surat Yaa Rab!! Dear God, emulate my life like a Moth
Ilm ki Shammaa se ho Mujh ko Mohabbat Yaa Rab! I should fall in Love with the Candle of Knowledge
Ho Meraa kaam Gareebon ki Himaayat karna My work should be to support the poor
Dard-mandon se Za’eefon se Mohabbat karna Those in pain and the feeble ones I should love
Mere Allah Buraai se bachaanaa mujh ko My God save me from doing Bad things
Naik jo Raah ho us Raah pe chalanaa mujh ko Please guide me, to the right path
