ISHWAR ALLAH

Ishwar Allah Song Lyrics and Translation

From the movie – 1947 Earth

ishwar allaah tere jahaan mein nafrat kyon hai jang hai kyon

God, why is there hatred in your world? Why is there war?

tera dil to itna bara hai insaan ka dil tang hai kyon

Your heart is so large; why is the heart of man so narrow?

ishwar allaah tere jahaan mein nafrat kyon hai jang hai kyon

God, why is there hatred in your world? Why is there war?

tera dil to itna baRa hai insaan ka dil tang hai kyon

Your heart is so large; why is the heart of man so narrow?

qadam qadam par sarhad kyon hai

Why are there boundaries at every step

saari zamin jo teri hai

when all the land is yours?

suraj ke phere karti hai phir kyon itni andheri hai

It revolves around the sun; why then is there so much darkness?

is duniya ke daaman par insaan ka lahu ka rang hai kyon

Why are the skirts of the world stained by the color of human blood?

ishwar allaah tere jahaan mein nafrat kyon hai jang hai kyon

God, why is there hatred in your world? Why is there war?

tera dil to itna baRa hai insaan ka dil tang hai kyon

Your heart is so large; why is the heart of man so narrow?

gunj rahi hai kitni chikhein pyaar ki baatein kaun sune

So many screams ring out; who will hear the words of love?

tuut rahe hain kitne sapne inke tukre kaun chune

So many dreams are shattering; who will gather up the pieces?

dil ke darvaazon par taale

Locks on the doors of our hearts;

taalon par yeh zang hai kyon

why have these locks rusted?

ishwar allaah tere jahaan mein nafrat kyon hai jang hai kyon

God, why is there hatred in your world? Why is there war?

tera dil to itna baRa hai insaan ka dil tang hai kyon

Your heart is so large; why is the heart of man so narrow?
