Ghareeb-E -Zahra Ki Ghurbat Sunou Aye Ahl-E -Azza.
Listen To The Plight Of Zahra'S Destitute, O Mourners.
Akela Reh Gaya Maqtal Mein Jab Mera Maula.
Alone He Was Left In The Battlefield.
Sipah-E -Sham Ne Charon Taraf Se Ghair Liya
The Army Of Syria Surrounded Him From All Sides.
Lab-E -Furat Tha Har Aik Khoon Ka Pyasa.
Near The Euphrates, Each One Was Thirsty For His Blood.
Tha Gul Chirag-E -Imamat Abhi Bhujana Hai.
The Flower, The Lamp Of Imamate, Is Yet To Be Extinguished.
Zameen Pe Zeen Se Shabir Ko Girana Hai.
They Aimed To Throw Shabir From His Saddle.

Yeh Sun Ke Sang Kissi Ne Jabeen Pe Mara.
Hearing This, Someone Struck His Forehead With A Stone.
Kissi Ne Pehlu Mein Barchi Ka Phal Utar Diya.
Another Plunged A Spear Into His Side.
Kissi Ne Samne Aa Kar Chalayi Taigh-E -Jafa.
Someone Stepped Forward, Wielding The Sword Of Injustice.
Ghareeb-E -Zahra Ka Zeen Par Sanbhalna Mushkil Tha.
It Was Difficult For Zahra'S Orphan To Balance On The Saddle.
Ali-O-Zahra Ko Ran Mein Rulaya Jata Tha.
Ali And Zahra Were Made To Weep In The Battlefield.
Hussain Girtay Nahi They Giraya Jata Tha.
Hussain Did Not Fall, He Was Made To Fall.

Laga Jo Teer Tu Asghar Ko Sheh Ne Yaad Kiya.
When The Arrow Struck, He Remembered Asghar.
Pukara Ghazi Ko Jis Waqt Sar Pe Gurz Laga.
He Called For Abbas When The Mace Hit His Head.
Lagi Jo Barchi Tu Akbar Ko Di Tarap Ke Sada.
When The Spear Struck, He Cried Out For Akbar.
Tamacha Kholi Ne Mara Tu Bolay Ya Zahra.
Sukaina Slapped Her Face And Cried, 'O Zahra!'
Ali Ko Yaad Kiya Sar Pe Zarb Chaltay Howay.
Remembering Ali, And The Blows To His Head.
Hassan Ko Yaad Kiya Munh Se Khoon Ugaltay Howay.
Recalling Hassan, As Blood Flowed From His Mouth.

Zameen Pe Zeen Se Hazrat Jo Munh Ke Bal Aaye.
When He Fell Face-First From The Saddle To The Ground.
Jo Teer Seene Pe They Pusht Se Nikal Aaye.
The Arrows In His Chest Came Out Through His Back.
Nikal Ke Pehlu Se Sab Barchiyon Ke Phal Aaye.
All The Spearheads Emerged From His Side.
Qarar Kis Tarha Ab Sheh Ko Aik Pal Aaye.
How Could He Find A Moment'S Peace?
Rakabein Pairon Se Ibn-E -Ali Ki Choot Gayin.
His Legs Came Loose From The Stirrups Of His Horse.
Tamam Pasliyaan Sibt-E -Nabi Ki Toot Gayiyn.
All The Ribs Of The Prophet'S Grandson Were Broken.

Raqam Kiya Hai Yeh Ravi Ne Dard Ka Manzar.
The Narrator Recounts This Scene Of Agony.
Ke Chalne Wala Tha Jis Dam Hussain Par Khanjar.
As The Dagger Was About To Be Thrust Upon Hussain.
Behan Se Aagay Khari Thi Hussain Ki Dukhtar.
Hussain'S Daughter Stood Before Her Brother, Weeping.
Kaha Yeh Shimar Se Oss Dam Ghareeb Ne Ro Kar.
She Pleaded With Shimr, 'O Cruel One, Spare My Father.
Meri Sakina Kahin Dam Na Toor Dey Zalim.
Don'T Break My Young Heart, Show Some Mercy.'
Rehem Kar Mere Baalo'N Ko Chhod De Zalim
Have Mercy And Let Go Of My Hair, You Cruel One.

Para Tha Dasht Mein Be -Jaan Batool Ka Beta
In The Desert Lay The Lifeless Body Of Batool'S Son.
Hussain Zinda Hain Kya Shimar Se Kissi Ne Kaha.
'Does Hussain Still Live?' Someone Asked Shimr.
Qareeb Ja Ke Yeh Di Shimar Ne Phir Hans Ke Sada.
Approaching, Shimr Mockingly Announced,
Woh Dekho Aa Gayi Maqtal Mein Sani-E -Zahra.
'Behold, Zahra'S Second Son Has Arrived In The Battlefield.'
Yeh Suntey Hi Sheh-E -Dilgeer Uth Ke Beth Gaye.
Hearing This, The Heartbroken Hussain Sat Up.
Behan Ke Naam Pe Shabir Uth Ke Beth Gaye.
At His Sister'S Name, Shabbir Rose.

Yeh Kehke Aage Badha Haath Mein Liye Khanjar
Holding The Dagger, Shimr Advanced,
Udhar Tadapne Lagi Ek Laash Darya Par
While A Corpse Writhed At The Riverbank.
Idhar Khayaam Se Nikli Batool Ki Dukhtar
From The Tents Emerged Batool'S Daughter.
Ajeeb Be Adabi Shimr Ne Ye Ki Aakar
With Blatant Disrespect, Shimr Approached.
Zara Si Bhi Na Murawwat Dikhayi Zalim Ne
He Showed No Mercy, Striking Down The Sacred Word.
Kalam E Paak Ko Thokar Lagayi Zalim Ne
The Accursed One Kicked The Holy Scripture.

Ajab Tarha Se Sitamgar Ye Kar Raha Tha Sitam
Such Cruelty Was Being Inflicted In Strange Ways.
Kabhi Hussain Ki Zulfo'N Mein Haath The Baaham
Sometimes Combing Through Hussain'S Hair With His Hands.
Pakad Ke Reeshe Mubarak Kabhi Hasa Azlam
Cruelly Laughing While Holding The Sacred Beard.
Hataya Balo'N Ko Khanjar Se Shimr Ne Ekdum
Suddenly, Shimr Removed The Hair Of Hussain With His Dagger.
Kaha Hussain Ne Dekho Zara Ali Akbar
Hussain Said, 'Look, Ali Akbar,
Laee'N Ne Rakh Diya Zaanu Hamare Seene Par
The Accursed Has Placed His Knee Upon My Chest.'

Chali Jo Zarb, Farishto'N Ne Muh Ko Pher Liya
When The Blow Was Struck, Angels Turned Their Faces.
Farishte Kya The Ke Nabiyo'N Ne Muh Ko Pher Liya
Not Just Angels, But Prophets Turned Away.
Hate Nabi To Rasoolo'N Ne Ko Muh Ko Pher Liya
When Prophets Turned, Messengers Turned.
Chale Rasool To Waliyo'N Ne Muh Ko Pher Liya
When Messengers Turned, Saints Turned.
Hasan, Rasool, Ali Bole Ab Khuda Jaane
Hasan, The Prophet, Ali Said, 'Now Only God Knows.
Hussain Jaane, Gala Jaane, Fatima Jaane
Only Hussain, His Throat, And Fatima Know.'

Ab Iske Aage Takallum Bayaan Kya Hoga
What Can Be Said Beyond This?
Lagi Jo Zarbein Na Nikla Lahu Ka Ek Qatra
When The Blows Struck, Not A Single Drop Of Blood Flowed.
Laeen Ghaiz Mein Aakar Sada Ye Dene Laga
[Shimr], The Accursed, In Rage, Kept Asking,
Hussain Jaldi Bata Mojiza Ye Hai Kaisa
'Hussain, Quickly Tell Me, What Kind Of Miracle Is This?'
Kaha Ghareeb Ne Tu Pyaar Maa Ka Kya Jaane
The Helpless One Replied, 'You Know Nothing Of A Mother'S Love.
Gale Pe Mere Gala Rakh Diya Hai Zahra Ne
Zahra Has Placed Her Hand Upon My Neck.'

Kaha Hussain Ne Amma Hata Le Apna Gala
Hussain Said, 'Mother, Remove Your Hand,
Mazeed Aap Ho Zakhmi Yeh Ho Nahi Sakta
You Cannot Be Further Wounded, This Cannot Happen.'
Gale Pe Shaah Ke Khanjar Laeen Ka Jo Chala
When The Accursed'S Dagger Struck Hussain'S Neck,
Sada Yeh Aati Thi Subhana Rabbiyal A'Ala
The Cry 'Subhana Rabbiyal A'Ala' Was Heard.
Pisar Ka Khoon Baha Sayyeda Ki Godi Mein
The Blood Of The Son Flowed In The Mother'S Lap.
Sar E Hussain Kata Fatima Ki Godi Mein
The Head Of Hussain Was Severed In Fatima'S Lap
