Aay Baad E Sab Ajake Ye Ammu Ko Batana Pyasi Hai Sakina
O Wind, Send This Message To My Uncle: Sakina Is Thirsty

Is Chote Se Sin Mein Yeh Sitam Mai Ne Uthaye
In Such A Young Age I Have Endured
Allah Kisi Ko Na Yateem Aaisa Banaie
I Pray Allah Never Makes Anyone An Orphan [Like Me]
Khud Apne Lahu Mein Koi Bacchi Na Nahaie
O Pray That A Child Never Drowns In Their Own Blood
Mai Tum Ko Bulati Rahi Tum Bhi To Na Aaie
I Kept Calling Out For You But You Never Came
Mai Ban Gai Bad-Asr Laeenon Ka Nishana...
After Asr (Your Death) I Became A Target For The Enemies

Pani Ki Talab Mujhko Khilati Rahi Thokar
I Was Thirsty And They Teased Me
Kehta Tha Laeen (La) Doonga Main Faujon Ko Pila Kar
They Said That They Would Give Their Army Water Instead
Jab Shimr Laeen Kar Chuka Sehraab Yeh Lashkar
When Shimr The Accursed Quenched His Army'S Thirst
Dikhla Ke Mujhe Phenk Diya Pani Zameen Par
He Showed Me Fresh Water And Poured It To The Ground
Tub Sumjhi Main Kya Hota Hai Umeed Dilana...
Then I Understood What It Mean To Break People'S Hopes

Ek Jaam Hua Shaam E Ghareeba Mein Maiyassar
We Were Offered Water On Shaam E Ghariban (The Night Of The Destitute)
Woh Kuza Main Rakh Aaie Thi Asghar Ki Lahad Par
I Made Sure To Give What I Received To Asghar
Tha Mujhse Bhi Chota Mera Bhaiya Mera Dilbar
My Beloved Brother Was Even Younger Than Me
Sharminda Main Ho Jaati Chacha Pyas Bujha Kar
I Would Have Felt Ashamed To Drink The Water When He Was Still Thirsty
Ab Apne Hi Haton Se Meri Pyas Bujhana...
Now Please Come And Quench My Thirst With Your Hands

Ek Rassi Mein Hum Sub Ke Gale Baandh Ke Aada
There Was One Rope In Which Our Necks Were Tied
Karte Hue Tash-Heer Chale Janib E Kufa
We Marched Towards The City Of Kufa
Aur Uspe Musibat Yeh Thi Kad Chota Tha Mera
The Tragedy Was That I Was The Smallest Of All
Uth Ti Thi Jo Phupiyan Gala Khich Ta Tha Mera
When My Aunts Lifted Me, My Neck Would Hurt [Chains Would Be Pulled Around Neck]
Gardan Ka Mere Zakhm Chacha Dekhne Aana...
Come To See The Wounds On My Neck O My Uncle

Jis Roz Se Asghar (Asws) Ko Mila Baba Ka Seena
Since The Day Asghar Had Had Father'S Chest To Rest Upon
Us Roz Se Ammu Nahi So Paaie Sakina (Sa)
Sakina Had Been Unable To Sleep
Is Haal Mein Jaungi Main Kis Tarha Madina
How Will I Return To Madina In Such A State?
Aajaie Mujhe Maut Hai Kis Kaam Ka Hai Jeena
What Use Is Living This Way?
Jaagi Hun Bahut Aa Ke Chacha Mujhko Sulana...
I'Ve Been Awake Too Long, O Uncle Put Me To Sleep

Ghar Laut Ke Jaate Hai Har Ek Shaam Parinde
Every Night, The Birds Return To Their Homes
Kismat Mein Likha (Hai) Meri Zindan Ke Andhere
But My Destiny Holds A Dark Prison
Kab Tak Mai Jiyungi Yunhi Ashkon Ke Sahare
How Long Will I Survive With These Tears?
Lagta Hai Ke Mar Jaungi Ab Door Watan Se
I Feel Like I Will Pass Away Far From My Hometown
Hoga Na Mayassar Mujhe Ghar Laut Ke Jaana...
I Will Not Get A Chance To Return Back Home

Pal Bhar Yeh Sada Parcham E Abbas (Asws) Aaye
'Anwar' A Voice Ecoed From The Flag Of Abbas
Mai Bhool Nahi Sakta Sakina (Sa) Meri Bacchi
I Cannot Forget You Sakina My Child
Kate Gai Bazu Mere Mujhko Yeh Tha Bibi
My Arms Were Martyred I Was Helpless My Child
Mashkiza Alam Mein Hai Laga Dekh Le Ab Bhi
Look At The Flag, You Will See My Water Flask
Parcham Ka Mere Kaam Hai Dunia Ko Batana...
My Flag Serves The Purpose To Tell The Whole World
