Chaap Tilak Sab Cheeni Re Mose Naina Milaike

छाप तिलक सब छीनी रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके।(ChaapTilak Sab Chini Re Mose Naina Milaike) - You Have Taken Away My Looks,My Identity By Just A Glance - Amir Khusro

Amir Khusro is a great Sufi poet and disciple of Nizammuddin Auliya. Mostly his creations are in devotion of his Nizam (master) and they are portrayed in a way a beloved is talking about her lover. That worldly love known to people is used as metaphors by him to tell his heavenly love to God or to his master. I have shared here one of his famous 'Ghazal' sung as qawwali by many Indian and Pakistani Singers. In this he said that by just a glance a heavenly look his master has taken away all from him. He said that his identity is dissolved in Him with that look; they both have become one. 




छाप तिलक सब छीनी रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके,
प्रेम भटी का मदवा पिलाइके,
मतवारी कर लीन्ही रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके,
गोरी गोरी बईयाँ, हरी हरी चूड़ियाँ,
बईयाँ पकड़ धर लीन्ही रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके,
बल बल जाऊं मैं तोरे रंग रजवा,
अपनी सी रंग दीन्ही रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके,
खुसरो निज़ाम के बल बल जाए,
मोहे सुहागन कीन्ही रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके,
छाप तिलक सब छीनी रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके।

Chaap Tilak Sab Cheeni Re Mose Naina Milaike,
Prem Bhati Ka Madwa Pilaike,
Matwari Kar Linhi Re Mose Naina Milaike,
Gori-Gori Baiyan, Hari-Hari Chidiyan,
Bainyan Pakad Dhar Linhi Re Mose Naina Milaike
Bal Bal Jaun Mein Tore Rang Rajwa,
Apni Si Rang Dinhi Re Mose Naina Milaike,
Khusro Nizam Ke Bal Bal Jaye,
Mohe Sugan Kinhi Re Mose Naina Milaike,
Chaap Tilak Sab Chini Re Mose Naina Milaike.

You've taken away my looks, my identity, by just a glance.
You've said the unknown, by just a glance.
By making me drink the wine from the love of devotion
You've intoxicated me by just a glance;
My fair, delicate wrists with green bangles in them,
Have been taken off by you with just a glance.
I give my life to you, Oh my cloth-dyer,
You've dyed me like yourself, by just a glance.
I give my whole life to you Oh, Nizam,
You've made me your bride, by just a glance.
You've said the wonder, by just a glance.
