Inspirational poem

This inspirational poem by Bulleh Shah (A great Sufi Mystic) removes the rust from our heart and awakens our soul so deeply. The poem directly hits the innermost point of our heart and calls us to action. It gives us a message that we keep fighting other people and never look into our own heart. We always try to blame others for our mistakes but Bulleh Shah took this concept to a great height by illustrating it with the relationship of human with Satan and his own “ego”. Sufism calls it “Nafs”. It is the greatest enemy of human and until human doesn’t fight with his own Nafs, he’ll not be able to fight Satan. So the ultimate truth is that, before fighting Satan and other people, first fight with your ego.

Presenting you a thought-provoking and inspirational poem by Bhulleh Shah:


Parh parh ilam hazaar kataban

Apna Aap na Parheya

You’ve read thousands of books,

but never tried to read your ownself

Ja Ja warda Mandar Masjid 

Mann Apne che na wareya

You rush to enter in the temples and Mosques

yet you never tried to enter your heart

Larde reha naal shaitaan Nai Nafs Apne naal lareya

You continuously try to fight shaitan all day

But never tried to fight your own ego


Bulleh Shah asmani uddeya phirda ein
Ty jera ghar baitha unoon pharya ee na

Bulleh Shah you kept trying to grab which was in the sky

but you never tried to get what was inside you.

Pehle aapne aap nu parh

Fer mandar Masjid warr

First read your own self

Then rush into the Mosques and Temples

Jado’n Nafs Jaway tera marr

Fer naal Shaitana Larr

And When you’ll succeed in abolishing your ego

Then try to fight Satan

~Bulleh Shah

The poem never leaves anyone the same as he was before reading it. It sinks and absorbs into the heart.
