lab pe aatii hai duaa banake tamannaa merii

mere allaah buraaii se bachaanaa mujhako
nek jo raah ho us raah pe chalaanaa mujhako

English: Translation

My longing comes to my lips as supplication of mine
O God! May like the candle be the life of mine!

May the world’s darkness disappear through the life of mine!
May every place light up with the sparkling light of mine!

May my homeland through me attain elegance
As the garden through flowers attains elegance

May my life like that of the moth be, O Lord!
May I love the lamp of knowledge, O Lord!

May supportive of the poor my life’s way be
May loving the old, the suffering my way be

O God! Protect me from the evil ways
Show me the path leading to the good ways
