Tanam Farsooda Jaan Para - NFAK - Naat-e-Rasool - تنم فرسودہ جاں پارہ

By now several people have emailed to ask me where they can find this on audio. It is part of a collection entitled "Sufi Qawwalis" and the reason you may have difficulty to google it is because the track is called "Naat-e-Rasool" not tanam farsooda. This rendition is particularly special to me because of the alaap that is a 6 minute preamble. A sort of introduction that is common to qawwali which is different in almost every rendition and depends on the mood the qawwal sets at that particular occasion. For some, it may appear rather long to wait for the actual main body of the poetry to begin at 6.00 minutes into the track, but then that is often exactly how classical presentations are made. If one listens carefully and deliberately to all the words and build-up then of course the final tempo of percussion, clapping with the repetition of verses (Pashaema ya Rasool-Allah..) has an even greater impact than the ordinary where the main kalam begins at the start.

Kalam Moalana Ahmed Jaami
___________________________________________

Tanam Farsooda jaa para
Ze Hijra Ya Rasulullah
Dillam Paz Murda Aawara
Ze Isyaa. Ya Rasulullah!

تنم فرسودہ جاں پارہ
ز ہجراں، یا رسول اللہ ۖ
دلم پژمردہ آوارہ
ز عصیاں، یا رسول اللہ ۖ


My body is dissolving in your separation
And my soul is breaking into pieces. Ya Rasulullah!
Due to my sins, My heart is weak and becoming enticed. Ya Rasulullah!
______________________________________________

Choon Soo’e Mun Guzar Aari
Manne Miskeen Zanaa Daari
Fida-E-Naqsh-E-Nalainat
Kunam Ja. Ya Rasulullah!


چوں سوۓ من گذر آری،
من مسکین ز ناداری
فداۓ نقش نعلینت
کنم جاں، یا رسول اللہ ۖ

When you pass by me
Then even in my immense poverty, ecstatically,
I must sacrifice my soul on your blessed sandal. Ya Rasulullah!
______________________________________________

Ze Jaame Hubb To Mustam
Ba Zanjeere To Dil Bustam
Nu’mi Goyam Ke Mun Bustum
Sukun Daa. Ya Rasulullah!


زجام حب تو مستم ،
با زنجیر تو دل بستم

نمی گویم کی من بستم
سخنداں، یا رسول اللہ ۖ

I am drowned in the taste of your love
And the chain of your love binds my heart.
Yet I don’t say that I know this language (of love). Ya Rasulullah!
______________________________________________

Ze Kharda Khaish Hairaanam
Siyaa Shud Roze Isyaanam
Pashemaanam, Pashemaanam, Pashemaanam. Ya Rasulullah!


ز کردہ خیش حیرانم،
سیاہ شد روز عصیانم
پشیمانم، پشیمانم،
پشیمانم، یا رسول اللہ ۖ

I am worried due to my misdeeds;
And I feel that my sins have blackened my heart. Ya Rasulullah!
I am in distress! I am in distress! I am in distress! Ya Rasulullah!
______________________________________________

Choon Baazoo’e Shafaa’at Raa
Khushaa’I Bar Gunaagara
Makun Mahruume Jaami Raa
Daraa Aan. Ya Rasulullah!


چوں بازوۓ شفاعت را
کشا بر گناہگاراں
مکن محروم جامی را
در آں، یا رسول اللہ


Ya Rasulullah! When you spread your hands to intercede for the sinners,
Then do not deprive Jaami of your exalted intercession.

Absolutely out of this world. It takes one to a higher plateau, especially:

Pashema nam, Pashema nam
Pashema Ya Rasoolullah.

Thank you for posting the track. Farsi & English translation help understand the real depth of the meaning. Maulana Jami has excelled here in his submission to the Prophet.

Some verses are missing in Farsi & English. It would be wonderful, if you could post those too. Then one can enjoy the meaning of entire kalam. Thank you.

This kalam is speechless. To tell you about the kalam, this is the most most respectful kalam (Naat) in sofiism. Sufis of all time always liked this beautiful Naat no matter he was Daata sb, Khawaja Moin uddin Chisti, Laal Shahbaz Qalandar, Hazoor Pir Mehr Ali Shah and you name it. You may say this is a blessed Naat.
