QUOTE/LYRICS IN URDU:

هللا وابہی! اے خدا کی جانب متوجہ ہونے والے! تمام ماسوا سے آنکھیں بند کر لے اور ملکوت ابہی کی طرف آ انکھیں لگا۔ جو چاہتا ہے اس سے چاہ، جو مانگنا ہے اس سے مانگ ۔ وہ اپنی ایک نگاہ سے الکھوں حاجتیں پوری کردیتا ہے اپنی ایک ادن ٰی ترین التفات سے الکھوں العالج بیماروں کو شفا عطا فرماتا ہے ۔ اور اس کی مہربانی کی ایک نگاہ ہی زخم کے لئے مرہم بن جاتی ہے اور دلوں کو قیود غم سے رہائی عطا فرماتی ہے جو کچھ کرتا ہے وہی کرتا ہے ہم کیا کر سکتے ہیں۔ وہ فاعل مختار و حاکم مطلق ہے ۔پس سر تسلیم خم کر اور رب رحیم پر بھروسہ بہتر ہے ۔ تجھ پر نور انور روش ہو.

QUOTE/LYRICS IN ENGLISH:

“O Thou who art turning thy face towards God! Close thine eyes to all things else, and open them to the realm of the All-Glorious. Ask whatsoever thou wishest of Him alone; seek whatsoever thou seekest from Him alone. With a look He granteth a hundred thousand hopes, with a glance He healeth a hundred thousand incurable ills, with a nod He layeth balm on every wound, with a glimpse He freeth the hearts from the shackles of grief. He doeth as He doeth, and what recourse have we? He carrieth out His Will, He ordaineth what He pleaseth. Then better for thee to bow down thy head in submission, and put thy trust in the All-Merciful Lord.”
-Abdu’l-Baha
