is jhooTh kee nagree se to.d ke, naata jaa pyaare,
BREAK THE RELATIONS WITH THIS TOWN OF LIES, O PRECIOUS,

amar rahe teraa pyaar,
MAY YOUR LOVE EVER ABIDE,

khush rehnaa mere yaar...
REMAIN HAPPY MY FRIEND...


jab jaanvar koee, insaan ko maare,
WHEN AN ANIMAL KILLS MAN,

jab jaanvar koee, insaan ko maare,
WHEN AN ANIMAL KILLS MAN,

kehte hai.n dunyaa me.n, vahshee usse saare,
‘TIS TERMED “BARBAROUS,” IN THE WORLD,

ek jaanvar kee jaan aaj insaano.n, ne lee hai,
TODAY, AN ANIMAL’S LIFE HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY BY HUMAN BEINGS,

chup kyoo.n hai sa.nsaar,
WHY IS THE WORLD SILENT?

khush rehnaa mere yaar....
REMAIN HAPPY MY FRIEND...


bas aakhree sun le, yeh mel hai apnaa,
LISTEN, IN SHORT, THIS IS OUR LAST MEETING,

bas aakhree sun le, yeh mel hai apnaa,
LISTEN, IN SHORT, THIS IS OUR LAST MEETING,

bas khatm ay saathee, yeh khel hai apnaa,
O MY COMPANION, IN SHORT, OUR GAME IS OVER!

ab yaad me.n teree beet jaaye.nge, ro-ro ke, jeevan ke din chaar,
NOW IN TEARFUL MEMORY THE REMAINING DAYS OF THE LIFE WILL PASS,

nafrat kee dunyaa ko chho.D ke, pyaar kee dunyaa me.n, khush rehnaa mere yaar,
AFTER LEAVING THE HATEFUL WORLD, REMAIN HAPPY IN THE WORLD OF LOVE, MY FRIEND,

khush rehnaa mere yaar.
REMAIN HAPPY MY FRIEND!

NASIR.

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said,

"While a dog was going round a well and was about to die of thirst, an
Israeli prostitute saw it and took off her shoe and watered it. So Allah
forgave her because of that good deed."
Sahi Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 673
