Rafi Sahaab sings of anxiety, broken heart, physical destruction, calamitous affects of being stricken with passionate love, in a style that only he could sing in: Ishq Ne Todee Sar Pe Qayamat....

Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original Urdu Lyrics of Jigar Moradabadi:



Ishq ne to.dee, sar pe qayaamat,
THE PASSIONATE LOVE HAS UNLEASHED OPPRESSION,

Zor-e-qayaamat, kyaa kahiye,
THE OPPRESSIVE POWER – WHAT TO SAY!

Sun-ne waala, koee nahee.n,
NO ONE TO HEAR...

Rudaade muhabbat, kyaa kahiye,
THE LOVE STORY - WHAT TO SAY!

Rudaade muhabbat, kyaa..., kahiye...
THE LOVE STORY - WHAT TO SAY!

Dil hai kisee kaa, raaz-e-haqeeqat,
SOMEONE’S HEART IS IN ESSENCE A MYSTERY ,

Raaz-e-haqeeqat kyaa kahiye,
THE MYSTERIOUS ESSENCE – WHAT TO SAY!

Hairat se jalwaa, mohar ballabh hai,
WITH ASTONISHMENT THE DISPLAY IS SEALED WITH THE DESIRE,

Jalwaa-e-hairat kyaa kahiye.
THE ASTONISHING DISPLAY - WHAT TO SAY!

Jab se usne, pher lee.n nazre.n,
FROM THE TIME SHE AVERTED HER EYES,

Rang-e- tabaahee, aah naa poochh,
THE PHYSICAL DESTRUCTION, ALAS! DON’T ASK,

Aah naa poochh,
ALAS! DON’T ASK,

Seenaa khaalee, aa.nkhe.n veeraa.n,
EMPTY BOSOM, DESOLATE EYES,

Dil kee haalat, kyaa kahiye,
THE HEART’S CONDITION - WHAT TO SAY!

Ek tajallee, ek tabassum, ek nigaah-e- bandanawaaz.
A MANIFESTATION, A SMILE, A PATRONISING GLANCE,

Is se ziyaadah, ay ghame jaanaa.n,
MORE THAN THIS, O ANXIOUS FOR BELOVED,

Dil kee qeemat, kyaa kahiye,
THE HEART’S WORTH - WHAT TO SAY!

Kyaa kahiye, kyaa kahiye,
WHAT TO SAY, WHAT TO SAY!

Sheeshaa-e-dil woh, hastee-e-naazuk,
THE FRAGILE HEART, THAT DELICATE BEING,

Thes lagee aur, TooT gayaa,
GOT SHATTERED ON RECEIVING A KNOCK,

TooT gayaa,
GOT SHATTERED,

Uspe kisee ke, teer-e-sitam kee,
ON TOP OF THAT, SOMEONE’S OPPRESIVE DART’S

mashq-e-siyaasat kyaa kahiye,
TORTUROUS PRACTICE - WHAT TO SAY!

Mashq-e-siyaasat, kyaa kahiye.
THE TORTUROUS PRACTICE, WHAT TO SAY!

NASIR.
