Lab Pe Aati Hai Dua Banke Tamanna Meri
Singer: Nayyara Noor(Guess)
A child's Prayer
This Prayer reminds me my school days..when we daily use to recite it before classes start...A remembering of those golden days...
this is a masterpieces of Allama Iqbal, ..." It is a kind of dua (prayer) which asks God to bless us with some beautiful things like love for the entire world, love for one's country, love for knowledge that becomes a blessing for the entire mankind and lastly, compassion for all human beings
Lab pe aati hai dua banke tamanna meri
Zindagi shama ki surat ho khudaya meri
Door duniya ka mere dam andhera no jaaye
Har jagah mere chamakane se ujaala ho jaaye
Ho mere dam se yoon hi mere watan ki zeenat
Jis tarah phool se hoti hai chaman ki zeenat
Zindagi ho meri parwaane ki surat ya rab
Ilm ki shama se ho mujhko mohabbat ya rab
Ho mera kaam garibon ki himaayat karna
Dard-mandon se zaiifon se mohabbat karna
Mere allaah buraai se bachaanaa mujhko
Nek jo raah ho us raah pe chalaanaa mujhko
My longing comes to my lips as supplication of mine O God!
May like the candle be the life of mine!
May the world's darkness disappear through the life of mine!
May every place light up with the sparkling light of mine!
May my homeland through me attain elegance
As the garden through flowers attains elegance
May my life like that of the moth be, O Lord!
May I love the lamp of knowledge, O Lord!
May supportive of the poor my life's way be
May loving the old, the suffering my way be
O God! Protect me from the evil ways
Show me the path leading to the good ways
