A Sufi Thought for the Week (Ahmed)

A short poem from the collection of the contemporary Urdu poet Syed Anwar Ahmed. (Translated by Ali Hammad)

تخلیق انساں

خواہش میں مجھ کو بن دیا

لمحوں میں مجھ کو چن دیا

اور پھر کہا یہ ناز سے

دیکھا! تجھے کیا گن دیا

CREATION OF THE HUMAN BEING

In desires I was knit.

In moments I was writ.

And then You claimed that

You gave me a gift!

The poem is taken from Syed Anwar Ahmed’s published collection of poems: “Ghulab Khiltay Hain.”
