Haminastu Fitoor Lyrics English Translation




This song is inspired from a famous Persian couplet by the 13th century Sufi poet Aamir Khusrow.

The couplets about Kashmir: “Agar firdaus bar roo-e zameen ast, Hameen ast-o hameen ast-o hameen ast…” If there is a paradise on earth, It is this, it is this, it is this…

This song compares the reality in Kashmir from the past when the place was beautiful, serene, and culturally thriving, to now when political upheavel and militant activity has left the land far from civility and peace. The new lyrics are added to the original from the Persian couplets as a comparison.

Urdu LyricsEnglish Translation
Agar firdaus bar roo-e-zameen ast,
 Hameen ast-o hameen ast-o hameen
ast…
If there is a paradise on earth,
 It is this, it is this, it is this…
Meri jaan, rooh, dil se wabast,
hameen ast-o hameen asto…
My being, my soul, my heart is
well acquainted with this, this is
the place, this is the place…
Agar firdaus bar roo-e-zameen ast,
 Hameen ast-o hameen ast-o
hameen asto…
If there is a paradise on earth,
 It is this, it is this, it is this…
Meri jaan, rooh, dil se wabast,
hameen ast-o hameen asto…
My being, my soul, my heart is
well acquainted with this, this is
the place, this is the place…
Khamosh darakhtu ke saaye, ye
khauf hai soya sa…Kuch khoya khoya humne
abhi, ye chehra hai roya sa…
Even the silhouettes of trees stay
silent in this dormant fear…I lost something now, and
there is sorrow on my face…
Murjhatey gulo ne zuk ke kaha,
humein aadat hain hameenastu…Chalte lamho ne ruk ke kaha
inayat hai hameenastu…
The withering flowers bowed down
and said we are used to the sorrow
here…The passing moments stopped
and said, it’s a blessing that time
passes on here…
Ye veeraney, ye sannatte, kya bol
rahe, aate jaatey, aate jaatey ho…
This yearning, this sombre silence,
what are they saying as they pass by
Panchi saarey ud gaye kahi, bas
ghosle hai hameenastu…
The birds have all flown away, only
the empty nests are left here…
Gar jannat hai zameen pe kahi, yahi
pe hai hameenastu
If there is heaven on the earth, it is
here, it is here…
