Lab Pe Aatii Hai Duaa

Lab pe aatii hai Duaa bana ke Tamanna Meri
  My longing comes to my lips as supplication of mine

Zindagii Shamma ki Surat ho Khudayaa Meri
  O Allah! May like the candle be the life of mine!

Door Duniya ka Mere dam se Andheraa hu jaaye
  May the worldly darkness be lifted by my efforts

Her jaga Mere Chamakane se Ujaalaa ho jaaye
  May every place be enlightened by my Light

Ho Mere dam se Yun hi Mere Watan ki Zeenat
  May my homeland through me attain elegance

Jis tarah Phool se hoti hai Chaman ki Zeenat
  As the garden through flower attains elegance

Zindagii ho Meri, Parawaane ki Surat Yaa Rab
  May my life like that of a moth be, O Lord

Ilm ki Shammaa se ho Mujh ko Mohabbat aai Rab
  May I love the lamp of knowledge, O Lord

Ho Meraa kaam Gareebon ki Himaayat karana
  May supportive of the poor my life’s way be

Dard-mandon se Za’eefon se Mohabbat karana
  May loving the old, the suffering my way be

Mere Allah Buraai se bachaanaa mujh ko
  O Allah! Protect me from the evil ways

Naik jo Raah ho us Raah pe chalanaa mujh ko
  Show me the path leading to the good ways

- Allama Iqbal

Happy Independence Day — may God bless our nation.
