Mere Rashke Qamar Lyrics Translation | Baadshaho

Movie: Baadshaho
Music: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, recreated by Tanishk Bagchi
Lyrics: Fana Bulandshehri, New Lyrics by Manoj Muntashir
Singers: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
Music Label: T-Series

Mere Rashq-e-Qamar was a Qawwali sung by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The ghazal was written by Fana Bulandshehri. Fana's name is mentioned as a takhallus in the original ghazal/qawwali, and even Manoj Muntashir, who has written entirely new lyrics except the ghazal's matla (the first sher) and converted the ghazal into a song, has written a line 'hum fanaa ho gaye' in this version, giving a tribute to the original writer. Also, some good work by Tanishk Bagchi here, who maintains the flavor of the original qawwali.

mere rashke qamar tune pehli nazar
jab nazar se milaayi maza aagaya

O my moon's envy, when for the first time
you met my gaze, it was wonderful.

[rashk = envy, qamar = moon. So rashq-e-qamar means envy of the moon.

josh hi josh mein meri aagosh mein
aake tu jo samaayi mazaa aa gaya

when in all enthusiasm, you came into my arms,
it was wonderful.



mere rashke qamar tune pehli nazar
jab nazar se milaayi mazaa aagaya

ret hi ret thi mere dil mein bhari
pyaas hi pyaas thi zindagi ye meri

there was just sand everywhere in my heart,
my life was just all thirst.

aaj sehraaon mein ishq ke gaaon mein
baarishein ghir ke aayin mazaa aa gaya

today, in the deserts (of my heart), in the village of love,
there were heavy rains, it was wonderful.

mere rashke qamar tune pehli nazar
jab nazar se milaayi mazaa aagaya

ranjha ho gaye hum fanaa ho gaye
aise tu muskuraayi mazaa aa gaya

I became a crazy lover, I destroyed myself (in love)
(when) you smiled so beautifully, it was just wonderful.

mere rashke qamar tune pehli nazar
jab nazar se milaayi mazaa aagaya
