Raazi Gambling…

اصلِ دنیا تو بس، مجازی مجازی

سفرِ آخر ہے بس، حجازی حجازی


حدِ علم کس نے دیکھی یاروں؟

فلسفہ ختم ہوا، رازی پھر رازی


اگر ان سے عشق اک جوا ہے

لگانے جا توں، بازی پہ بازی


درجاتِ معرکہِ عشق یہی تو ہیں

شہید شہید ہے، غازی ہے غازی


استاد کامل نہیں ہے عشق میں

یہی فیصلہ ہوا، قاضی در قاضی


The reality of the world

Is quite unreal

And the last journey we take

Is towards judgement


So who has seen the limits

Of knowledge itself?

The philosophy ends

And Razi yet remains Razi


Therefore if love

Is a gamble

Keep playing

Turn after turn


For the divisions

After the battle of love

Remain as such

Victorious and ever victorious


Yet he is not

Able to love anyone

Such was the judgement

Time after time
