Junoon – Khudi Ko Kar Buland Itna

One of the most inspirational songs which every heart should hum along.

Junoon – Khudi Ko Kar Buland Itna
Title: Khudi
Album: Azadi
Music: Salman Ahmad
Poetry: Allama Iqbal


Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqder se pehle
Khuda bande se ye poche bata teri raza kia hai

Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqder se pehle
Khuda bande se ye poche bata teri raza kia hai

Sitaron se age jahan aur bhi hai aur bhi hai
Abhi ishq ke Imtehan aur bhi hai aur bhi hai
Sitaron se age jahan aur bhi hai aur bhi hai
Abhi ishq ke Imtehan aur bhi hai aur bhi hai

Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqder se pehle
Khuda bande se ye poche bata teri raza kia hai

Tu shaheen hai, Tu shaheen hai, Tu shaheen hai
Tu shaheen hai, Tu shaheen hai Parvaz hai kam tera kam tera
Tere samne Aasman aur bhi hai
Tu shaheen he Basera kar Paharon ki chatano per
Tu shaheen hai tu Shaheen hai tu shaheen hai

Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqder se pehle
Khuda bande se ye poche bata teri raza kia hai

Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqder se pehle
Khuda bande se ye poche bata teri raza kia hai
bata teri raza kia hai
bata teri raza kia hai


It originally goes like this:
“Khudi ko kar buland itna, ke har takdeer se pehlay
Khuda bande se khud puche, bata teri raza kiya hai.”

A very rough translation with apologies to the poet:
“Increase your selflessness to such heights that before creating each destiny, God himself would have to ask the human ‘What is your opinion about this’ “.

“Khudi” is the philosophical concept that Iqbal talks about a lot. It can be translated as “Selflessness” or what is called “Egoism”.

har ek friend zaroori hota hai

Chai ke Liye jaise toast hota hai–Vaise har ek friend zaroori hota hai

Aise har ek friend zaroori hota hai

Koi subah paanch baje neend se jagaye

Koi raat ko teen baje jaan bachaye

Ek teri kadki mein sharing kare

Aur Ek tere budget mein sneak in kare

Koi nature se guest koi host hota hai

Par har ek friend zaroori hota hai

Ek ghadi ghadi kaam aaye par kabhi kabhi call kare

Ek kabhi kabhi kaam aaye aur ghadi ghadi call kare

Gossip ka koi ghoomta phirta satellite

Koi sath rahe toh kar de sab alright

Koi effortless koi forced hota hai

Lekin har ek friend zaroori hota hai

Chat Room friend koi classroom friend

Koi bike pe race wala vroom vroom friend

Shopping mall wala shopping friend

Koi Exam hall wala copying friend

Movie buddy groovy buddy

Hi buddy–Bye buddy

Joke buddy Poke buddy

Gaana Buddy Shaana buddy

Chaddi Buddy Yaar Buddy

Kutte kaminey

Everybody

Sab buddy

A to Z

Gin din ke naam bheja Roast hota hai

Par har ek friend zaroori hota hai

Lekin har ek friend zaroori hota hai

I Can.

PROGRESS requires a great Plan,
PRODUCTIVITY requires precise calculated Action,
CONSISTENCY requires determined Focus & rock solid Patience,
