Friday evening relaxation

“Kafan mein khud ko chhupa liya hai
Ke tujh ko parde ki ho na zehmat
Naqaab apne liye banakar
Hijaab tera utha raha hoon”

Sung by Nusrat. Incredible words from the pen of Allama Muhammad Iqbal.

Roughly translated…
“I have hidden myself in my shroud
So you don’t have to take the trouble of putting on your veil
By making a veil for my own self,
I am lifting your veil”
