    Mun tu shudam tu mun shudi,mun tun shudam tu jaan shudi

    Taakas na guyad baad azeen, mun deegaram tu deegari

    I have become you, and you me,

    I am the body, you soul;

    So that no one can say hereafter,

    That you are are someone, and me someone else.



    The people of the world say that Khusrau worships idols.

    So he does, so he does; the people he does not need,

    the world he does not need.

    (Trans. Dr.Hadi Hasan)



    I wonder what was the place where I was last night,

    All around me were half-slaughtered victims of love,

    tossing about in agony.

    There was a nymph-like beloved with cypress-like form

    and tulip-like face,

    Ruthlessly playing havoc with the hearts of the lovers.

    God himself was the master of ceremonies in that heavenly court,

    oh Khusrau, where (the face of) the Prophet too was shedding light

    like a candle.
