SHAM KU AAVA(N)TAA JO KAHE
BY PEER SADARDEEN
ejee shaamku aava(n)taa jo kahe - taaku(n) laakh vadhaai
paa(n)ch sakhee kero vahaalmo - kene meeleeyore bhaai
shamku(n) ddhu(n)ddha(n)te dekhte - ketaa jug gayaa viraa
Those who inform about the gracious arrival of the Lord (Imaam),
are entitled to hundreds of thousands of felicitations. O brothers!
(show me) who has recognised the one(Imaam) who is as dear as
the five dearest ones("Panjtan Pak"). Seeking and looking for
the Imaam, O brothers!, numerous ages have gone and many
incarnations have been consumed.
ejee swaamee ke gale me(n) haar hay - heeraa maannek jaddeeyaa
jeesare bhaave taaku(n) det hay - saaheb hay deel dariyaa....2
There is a necklace worn by the Imaam where in diamonds
and gems are studded. (expression of heavenly and invaluable
treasure of wisdom and knowledge at the disposal of the Imaam).
He gratifies (guides) whom He likes (since) the Imaam is ocean
ejee swaamee maaro chatur sujaann hay - aape sreshtth divaan
jeesa ke bharose sthir rahyaa - rahyaa jameen aasmaan........3
My Lord (Imaam) is All Intelligent and All Knowing,
He is the one who is to judge and take account of your deeds.
By His support and guidance, a devotee attains control over
the earth and the heavens.
ejee jaa(n)thakee hee jug jeet hay - ma(n)y hu(n) baa(n)dee re taakee
vachane vachane paau(n) bharu - cha(n)daa suraj saakhee......4
I am a slave of the one by whose cause the entire universe
is alive and active. I place my footsteps according to His guidances,
the sun and the moon bear witness to this fact.
ejee peer sadardeen boliyaa - koi man aapnnu samajaave
kapaddaa dhove so kyaa huvaa - deel dhove so paave...........5
Peer Sadardeen says and enlightens your mind (heart).
Of what good is it to clean your clothes (be ostentatious).
It is only through the purity of the inner being (heart)
that one attains (salvation and the timeless rewards).
