Title: Aleph
Album: Azadi
Lyrics: Bulley Shah
Music: Salman Ahmad
   
 

Ilmon bas karein o yaar!
Iko aleph teray darkaar
Ilm na aavay vich shumaar
Jaandi umar nahin aitebar

Iko aleph teray darkaar
Ilmon bas karein o yaar

Parh parh likh likh laavein dhair
Dhair kitaaban chaar chapair
Girday chanan vich anair
Pichon rah te khabar na sar
Ilmon bas karein o yaar

Parh parh nafal namaaz guzaari
Uchiaan baangaan changaan maareen
Mimbar te charh awaaz pukaari
Keeta tenon ilm khwaar
Ilmon bas karein o yaar

Iko aleph teray darkaar
Iko aleph teray darkaar

 

(English translation)

Cryptic Sciences? Enough already!

The first letter is all you need
Aleph is all you need
Knowledge hardly comes in dozens
And who’s to say how long you’ll last?
Cryptic Sciences? Enough already!
Aleph is all you need

You read heaps and write heaps
And bury your head in books
Light is everywhere but where you are
And you haven’t a clue how to reach it

Marking time in extra prayers
Climbing a minaret and screeching
Mounting a pulpit and preaching - -
All this has nothing to do with knowledge
Cryptic Sciences? Enough already!
Aleph is all you need

Aleph is all you need
