Khuda Jaane Kahaan Se - Kalaam Hazrat Bedam Shah Warsi

Khuda jane kahan se jalwaye jana kahan tak hai
Wahin tak dekh sakta hai nazar jiski jahan tak hai

Only God knows the limits of inifinte His Kingdom
Humans know to the confines of their finite mind

Hum itni bhi na samjhe aql khoi dil gawan baithe
Ke husn o ishq ki duniya kahan se hai kahan tak hai

I lost my mind and heart I could not figure out
Where the world of beauty and love begins- and where it ends

Zameen se aasman tak ek sannate ka aalam hai
Naheen maalum mere dil ki viraani kahaan tak hai

From earth to sky stretches an eerie wilderness
I kow not the extent of the ruinsthe desolation of my heart

Zameen se aasman tak aasman se la makan tak hai
Khuda jane hamare ishq ki duniya kahan tak hai

From the earth to the empyreanfrom the sky to placelessness
Only He knows the expanse of the hearts universe

Niyaz o naaz ki rudad husn o ishq ka qissa
Ye jo kuchh bhi hai sab unki hamari dastan tak hai

The stories of beauty of love
Whatever there is in the world, is the storyof our love

Khayal e yaar ne to aate hi gum kar diya mujhko
Yahi hai ibteda to inteha iski kahan tak hai

With the very first thought of the BelovedI was lost to the world
If this be the beginning whatwould be its finale

Suna hai sufiyon se hamne aksar khanaqahon mein
Ki yeh rangeen bayani Bedam rangeen bayan tak hai

Once have I heard Sufis say in their retreats
These colourful words, Bedam, these soulful verses,ends here
