Given Below are the lyrics of the song “aye dil-e-nadaan” from the film  Razia Sultan directed by Kamal Amrohi. The film stars Hema Malini, Parveen Bhabi and Dharmendra in lead roles.

This was the last song written by Lyricist/poet Jan Nisar Akhtar. He passed away in the midst of the film and  Nida Fazli was brought in to write the consequent songs.

Aye dil-e-nadaan, aye dil-e-nadaan

 Oh my immature heart,

Aarzoo kyaa hain, justajoo kyaa hain

What’s your desire? What are you seeking?

Hum bhatakate hain, kyon bhatakate hain dashta-o-seharaa mein ?

I’m wandering. Why am i wandering in this wilderness?

Aisa lagata hain, mauj pyaasi hain apane dariyaa mein,

It seems that, the wave is thirsty in its own ocean,

Kaisi uljhan hain, kyon ye uljhan hain

What is this enigma? why is this enigma?,

Yek saayaa saa, rubaru kyaa hain

Like a shadow, what is present in front of me?

Kya kayamat hain, kyaa musibat hain

What’s this lassitude and turmoil for? whats this difficulty?,

Kah naheen sakate, kis kaa armaan hain,

Can’t say for whom this longing is,

Jindagi jaise khoyi khoyi hain, hairaan hairaan hain,

Life feels a little lost and confused,

Ye zameen chup hain, asmaan chup hain,

This earth is silent, and the sky is quite as well,

Fir ye dhadkan si chaar soo kya hain

Then why the sound of heartbeats everywhere

Aye dila-e-nadaan ayesi raahon mein kitane kaante hain

Oh my immature heart, there so many thorns like this in the path,

Aarzoon ne har kisi dil ko dard baante hain,

This longing has only conferred grief to every heart,

Kitane ghaayal hain, kitane bismil hain

So many are wounded already, so many are afflicted lovers,

Is khudai mein ek tu kyaa hain

Then who are you in this whole divinity?
