Unreal and false is this illusiory existence in which my soul has gotten attached. Lest this soul fell into hell O Lord!

KALPAT JALPAT MAYA E MOHI

Pir Sadardeen

Momins, this creation (earth and water) is alluring

and those who attach themselves to it find

themselves in hell ...1

O Lord, You are the one who is perfect

O Beloved, You are the one who is perfect

O Master, You are the one who is perfect

I am so imperfect and sinful that I beseech

You to forgive my sins and be kind to me

Momins, Just as the water that is impure is not useful

(so is the preaching by any other Guru).

So follow what Pir has to say if you want to

achieve advancement towards your spiritual goal ...2

KALPAT JALPAT

Pir Hasan Kabirdeen

As a result of his temptation with this mirage like, illusionary world, lest the human soul should go to hell, O Preventer:

Praise be to You, O Allah

Praise be to You, O Beloved

Praise be to You, O Master

O Lord, I am full of imperfection

Bestow your grace upon this slave

for all of his sins ...1

The one who is virtuous would not suffer from the 'act of time'.

Only those followers who acted upon the direction which Pirs gave, could earn the fruits of their deeds. ...2

KALAPAT JALAPAT MAYA E MOHI

Pir Hasan Kabirdin

The fascinating world is illusory and like a mirage,

May my soul be saved from going to hell, O Lord!

All praise is due to You, O Allah!

All praise is due to You, O Beloved!

All praise is due to You, O Master!

Many are my faults, O Lord!

Forgive all the sins of this slave, O my Master! ...1

Even if you are not a swindler, you will gain nothing whatsoever (while you remain fascinated by the world),

Pir says that only the slave (of Allah) will earn the benefits.

All praise is due to You, O Allah! ...2
