Movie: WAQT (1965)
Lyrics: Sahir Ludhianvi
Music: Ravi


Rafi sings on the vicissitudes of time: Waqt Se Din Aur Raat...

Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original Urdu lyrics:


Kal jahaan basti thi.n khushiyaa.n,
YESTERDAY WHERE HAPPINESS HAD DWELT,

Aaj hai maatam wahaan,
TODAY THERE IS MOURNING,

Waqt laaya thaa bahaare.n,
TIME HAD BROUGHT SPRING,

Waqt laaya hai khizaa.n
TIME HAS BROUGHT THE DECAYING-AUTUMN


Waqt se din aur raat,
THE NIGHT AND THE DAY EXIST BECAUSE OF TIME

Waqt se kal aur aaj,
THE FUTURE AND THE PRESENT ADHERES TO TIME,

Waqt ki har shay ghulaam,
ALL THINGS ARE SUBSERVIENT TO TIME,

Waqt ka har shay par raaj.
THAT WHICH GOVERNS ALL THINGS IS TIME.

Waqt se din aur raat,
THE NIGHT AND THE DAY EXIST BECAUSE OF TIME

Waqt se kal aur aaj,
THE FUTURE AND THE PRESENT ADHERES TO TIME,

Waqt ki har shay ghulaam,
ALL THINGS ARE SUBSERVIENT TO TIME,

Waqt ka har shay par raaj.
THAT WHICH GOVERNS ALL THINGS IS TIME.


Waqt ki gardish se hai
WITH THE REVOLUTION OF TIME

Chaand taaron ka nizaam,
LIES THE ADMINISTRATION OF CELESTIAL BODIES,

Waqt ki gardish se hai
WITH THE REVOLUTION TIME

Chaand taaron ka nizaam,
LIES THE ADMINISTRATION OF CELESTIAL BODIES,

Waqt ki thokar men. hai,
TIME HAS ALL AT ITS FEET:

Kya huqumat kya samaaj,
WHETHER THE KINGDOM OR THE SOCIETY,

Kya huqumt kya samaaj.
WHETHER THE KINGDOM OR THE SOCIETY.


Waqt se din aur raat,
THE NIGHT AND THE DAY EXIST BECAUSE OF TIME

Waqt se kal aur aaj,
THE FUTURE AND THE PRESENT ADHERES TO TIME,

Waqt ki har shay ghulaam,
ALL THINGS ARE SUBSERVIENT TO TIME,

Waqt ka har shay par raaj.
THAT WHICH GOVERNS ALL THINGS IS TIME.


Waqt ki paaband hai.n
TO THE TIME IS SUBJUGATED

Aati jaati raunaqe.n
THE EPHEMERAL SPLENDOURS,

Waqt hai phoolon ki sej,
TIME IS A BED OF FLOWERS,

Waqt hai kaanto ka taaj,
TIME IS A CROWN OF THORNS,

Waqt hai kaanto ka taaj.
TIME IS A CROWN OF THORNS.


Waqt se din aur raat,
THE NIGHT AND THE DAY EXIST BECAUSE OF TIME

Waqt se kal aur aaj,
THE FUTURE AND THE PRESENT ADHERES TO TIME,

Waqt ki har shay ghulaam,
ALL THINGS ARE SUBSERVIENT TO TIME,

Waqt ka har shay par raaj.
THAT WHICH GOVERNS ALL THINGS IS TIME.


Aadmi ko chaahiye,
MAN MUST MAKE IT A POINT

Waqt se dar kar rahe…
TO BE AFRAID OF TIME,

Aadmi ko chaahiye,
MAN MUST MAKE IT A POINT

Waqt se dar kar rahe
TO BE AFRAID OF TIME,

Kaun jaane kis gha.di,
WHO KNOWS AT WHAT MOMENT

Waqt ka badle mizaaj,
TIME WILL CHANGE ITS TEMPERAMENT,

Waqt ka badle mizaaj.
TIME WILL CHANGE ITS TEMPERAMENT.


Waqt se din aur raat,
THE NIGHT AND THE DAY EXIST BECAUSE OF TIME

Waqt se kal aur aaj,
THE FUTURE AND THE PRESENT ADHERES TO TIME,

Waqt ki har shay ghulaam,
ALL THINGS ARE SUBSERVIENT TO TIME,

Waqt ka har shay par raaj.
THAT WHICH GOVERNS ALL THINGS IS TIME.

NASIR.
