Mohammad Bakhsh was a master Punjabi lyricist. This book-length poem is apparently about the journey of a prince in search of his love but it’s the Sufi wisdom dispersed throughout the book that attracts the masses. Hundreds of couplets from this book are used as proverbs in this region (Kashmir, Jhelum, Rawalindi, Chakwal).

Lyrics

Part 1

Awal hamd sana Ellahi, jo Maalik har har da
Us da naam chattaran wala, kisay maidaan na harda

Rehmat da meenh paa Khudaya, baagh sukha ker harya
Boota aas umeed meri da, ker day meway bharya

Ais ajaib baaghay ander aadam da rukh laya
Ma’arifat da mewa day k wah phaldaar banaya

Aap makaano khaali, us theen koi makaan na khaali
Har welay har cheez Muhammad rakhda nit sambhali

Jo jo rizq kisay da kitoas (given), likhaya kaday na talay
Lakh karoar takay buryayan (faults), phir v owen palay

Wah Karim Umat da Waali (SAWS), mehar shafa’at karda
Jibrael (AS) jay jis chaakar, Nabiyaan da sarkarda

Oh Mehboob, Habib Rabbana (SAWS), haami roz hashar da
Aap yateem (SAWS), yateem taaen hath siray tay dharda

Main paapi, sharminda, jhoota, bharya naal gunahan
iko aas tusaday dar di, na koi hoar panahan

Main anhan (blind), tay tilkan rasta, kyun ker rahay sambhala?
Dhakay dewan walay bohtay, toun hath pakran wala

Sun faryaad peeran daya peera, dhaka daen na menu
beykasan da waali toun en, sharam ditti Rab tenu

Jinhan paisa palay naahi, khaali muran bazaaron
Naqad naseeb, Muhammad Bakhsha, bin kismat keh daaron

Jhal jhal haar na haarain himat, ik din phirsi paasa
Bhukha mangan charay Muhammad, orak bharda kaasa

Dardmandan day sukhan Muhammad dain gawahi haalon
Jis palay phul badhay howan, away baas romaalon

Duniya utay jiwan mera har giz kisay na kaari
Toun matloob dilay da haisain, tudd na kitti yaari

lay lia jo laina haisi, likhya wich naseebaan
beyparwahan naal Muhammad zoar na asaan ghareebaan

Yaari ander umer guzari, waikh laen ik waari
Inah akhen tenu ditha, hoar na waikhan kaari

Bus mera kuj wass nae chalda, ki tusada khona?
Lissay da ki zoar Muhammad? Nass jana ya rona

Dilbar day ghar beyparwahi karay ghareeb nawazi
Jis par paway nazar Muhammad, jitt jaway oh baazi

Part 2

Kar kar yaad sajan noun khaanday bhun bhun jigar nawalay
Sharbat waang piyaray hathon piyon zehar pyaalay

Raateen zaari ker ker rowan, neend ankhen di dhoandhay
Fajaray ogan haar kahawan, har theen newain honday

Rait wajood teray wich sona, aiwen nazar na awaay
Hanjowan da ghatt paani dhowain, rait mitti rurh jaway

Gal wich phaa ghaman da ghatt k zikron chik madhaani
Himat naal Muhammad Bakhsha makhan aya jaani

Jeewan jeewan, jhoota nawan, moat khali sir utay
Lakh karoar teray theen sohnay khaak ander rall sutay

Jinhan ishq khareed na keeta, ewain aa biktay
Ishqay bahjh Muhammad Bakhsha, kiya aadam? Kiya kuttay?

Ishqon bahjh emaan koyeha (incomplete), Kehan emaan salamat
Mar k jeewan sifat ishq di, dam dam roaz qayamat

Jay lakh zohad ibadar karye, bin ishqon kis kaari?
Jid tak ishq na saaray tenu, tadd tak nibhay na yaari

Jinhan dard ishq da naahi, kadd phal paan deedaaron?
Jay Rab roag ishq da laway, loar naen koi daaron

Yaad karay jadd apna tenu, chtsan hoar ashnayan
Maa, payo, sajan, yaad na rehsan, hiras na behna bhayan

Har koi janay sori saami, agay qabar hanaira
Ik akali, wich ujaray daem hossi dhaira

Ilmay karan duniya utay awan hai insaanan
Samjhay ilam wajood apnay noun, naen taan waang haiwaanan

Hukmay bahjh na niklan honda, jay so kray tyaari
Panchi tang paya wich pinjray, kyun ker kray udaari?

Maan mani taan Rabb manaya, pehla murshad maae
Shukar Khuda da ajay toun raazi, nalay patt reh aye

Kharch karan theen sangay naahi, daan day bin mangay
Mangat loak Muhammad Bakhsha dolat dey dey rangay

Jis neengar (infant) noun ulfat ker k aap kuchar chuk chayee
Toray bol kray wich choli, dharti na patkaye

Hathaan noun tharkanba laga, jhoola tudd banaya
Ek jhool jhalya kehnda chadd day maal paraya

Duniya naal gae na kisay day, turr turr gay kalay
Oho bhalay jinhan chandd rakhay iss dhohron hath palay

Nangi paireen gay badaisi, khaak rulay sab mar k
Kaho k maan Muhammad Bakhsha, raho namanay darr k

Part 3

Kharyaan day larr lagan mein bhe, khotta aap jahanon
Shala khoat meeay noun kajan, daem sharam unhan noun

Jo dita so dita menu, ik see dewan walay
Bhanway rukha, bhanway thainda, bhanway charb nawalay

Sun murli di lakar kolon dard, wichora rukh da
Sabnah da eh haal Muhammad, kaho ki haal ulakh da

Sabar karain taan ajar milay ga, aye khabar kitaabon
Sabar utaray kufal Muhammad, har har mushkal baabon

Chaar deharay umer, jawani, ker lay aishaan, moujaan
Sada naen eh dolay, duniya, sada na lashkar, foujaan

Likhay laikh azal day kehra ker tadbeer mitaye?
Kae ameer, wazeer, syanay iss taqdeer kulaye

Waila aj paraira tera (your death), nalay umer, jawani
Kro adalat, hoar ibadat, orak hona faani

Naa koi roo mulahiza othay, naa koi uzar, bahana
Jo kujh karain, so ohain milsi, dhadha adal shahana

Baagh, baharan, tay gulzaran, bin yaaran kis kaari?
Yaar milay, dukh jaan hazaran, shukar karaan lakh waari

Uchi jaaye neyon lagaya, bani museebat bhaari
Yaaran bajh Muhammad Bakhsha koun karay gham khawari?

Dithay bahjh pareet lagaye, ho gaya jo hona
Hasan khaidan, yaad na menu paya umer da rona

Dilbar mukh dikhanda naahi, daagh mera kis dhona?
Sajan da darr chor Muhammad kis darr ja khalona?

Neechan di ashnae koloun kisay naen phal paya
Kikar tay angoor charhaya, har ghucha zakhmaya

Dhoondhan wala raya na khaali, dhoondh keeti jis sachi
Dhoondh krainda jo urr aya, dhoondh odhi gin kachi

Dam dam jaan laban par awaay, choar hawaili tann di
Khali oodheekan, matt uraway kidron waa sajan di

Peengan bohat hularay chariyan, turut zameen per jharyaan
Kuriyaan phir na muriyan paikay, sohryaan chik khariyan

Moti kadd milay mur seepaan? Wanj pay wich lariyaan
Digyaan phaliyaan khaakon ruliyaan, phir rukheen khadd chariyan

Pakri jaan azaban ander, jiyon wailnay wich ganna
Rho noun kaho hun raho Muhammad, hun jay rohway tay manan

Jis dilay wich ishq na rachya, kuttay us theen changay
Maalik day darr raakhi karday, saabar, phukhay, nangay

Part 4

Tindan hanjo bhar bhar dholan, jaan ander ker khaali
Sada naen iss ronak rehna, sada naen khush haali

Jis dil ander ishq samaya, oas naen phir jana
Toray sohnay milan hazaran, naahi yaar wataana

Teri oat panah Khudaya, hoar naen kujh sujhda
Jis deeway noun aapon baalain, kadd kisay theen bhujhda?

Har mushkal di kunji yaaro mardan day hath aye
Mard dua karan jis wailau, mushkal rahay na kaae

Khaasaan di gal aaman agay har giz mol na krni
Mithi kheer paka Muhammad, kuttyan agay dharni

Sada na bagheen bulbul bolay, sada na moaj baharan
Sada na maapay, husan, jawani, sada na suhbat yaaran

Sada naen murghayan behna, sada naen sir paani
Sada na sayaan sees gundhawan, sada na surkhi lani

Sang day saathi laddi janday, asaan v saath ladana
Hath na awaay phir Muhammad, jaan eh waqat wehana

Sada naen hath mehndi ratay, sada na chankan wangan
Sada na chopay paa Muhammad, rall mill behna sangaan

Sada na rast bazarain wiksi, sada na ronaq shehraan
Sada na mouj jawani waali, sada na nadi eh lehraan

Kitni waari touba bhani, mein haan bey aitbaraan
Phir teray darr touba keeti, bakhsheen bakhshan haraan

Mou kaala, sharminda aasi, ki teray darr awaan?
Mujrim theen chaa mehram krna, tera fazal suchawan

Duniya tay jo kam na aya okhay sokhay wailay
Us beyfaizi sangi koloun behtar yaar akailay

Maan na karye roop ghanay da, waris koun hussan da?
Sada na rehsan shakhaan hariyan, sada na phul chaman da

Kamil ishq khudaya bakhsheen, ghair walon mukh moraan
Iko janaan, iko takaan, iko aakhaan, loraan

Baagh, baharan, phul hazaran, baas naen har paasay
Kitoon na aye boo sajan di, umer guzari aasay

Dukhiyay di gal dukiya sunda, qeemat, qadar pachani
Ki dukhiya jo dukhiye agay dasay naen nahani

Bin aye jind niklay naahi, koi jahan na chalda
Dhadhay day hath qalam Muhammad, wass naen kujh chalda

Mangay bajhon daen muradaa, beyandaz, shumaraan
Jo ehsaan meray tay keetay, dam dam shukar guzaraan
