Bulleh Nu Samjhawan AaiyaN

Bulleh Shah was born into a Sayyed family — the descendants of the prophet of Islam — who are given a respectful and high place in the Punjabi muslim community. When Bulleh Shah chose Shah Inayat Qadri, an Arain, as his spiritual master, his family didn’t approve of this. This poem of Bulleh Shah tells how he disapproves of their disapproval. (Arain are an agricultural caste of Punjab, not to be confused with Aryans.)

Lyrics

ooo mula ooo mian
ooo mian

mujhe talash naa kar
mujhe talash naa kar

zooqe be-kudi sajood
nazar ki chand shooaoo maay ghir gaya hu maay

bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai

naa rab arsh mualla utaay
naa rab khan-e-kabay huu
naa rab ilm kibay latha naa rab wich mehrabe hu
ganga terek mool naa malya panday be hasabe hu
jad daa murshad milya bahoo chotay saab azabey hu

bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai
bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai

maan lay bulleya sada kahna chad dey pala arayian
aale nabi ulade ali nu tu kun likaa layia

bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai
bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai

naa maay jogi naa maay changum
naa maay chila kamaya hu
naa maay bhaj maseeti warya naa maay tasba kharkaya hu
ju dam ghafil soo dam kafir murshad aaye farmaya hu
murshad sooni kiti bhau sanu pal wich jaa bakshaya hu

bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai
bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai

jehra sanu sayed saday dozakh milay sazaiya
jo koi sanu arayi akhay bahishti pingaa payian

bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai
bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai

naa maay suni naa maay shiya
mera dohaa tu dil sarya hu
muk gayi saab khushki daay panday
darya rehmat warya hu
kia maan taroo dar dar haray
koi kinaray charya hu
sahi salamat paar gaye bahu
jeha murshad da lar pharya hu

bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai
bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai

rai sain sabni kain rab diya beparwain
sohni paray hatayian tay kojian gal layian

bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai
bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai

jay tu loray bhagh baharan ja kar hu ja araiyian
bulleh shah di zaat ki pochnaa shakir hu razayian

bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai
bulleh nu samjhawan aaiyan bhaina tey bharjai

ooo mula aaa mula allah
ooo mian ooo bullia shala jivey
