Sare Jahan Se Acha Poem English Lyrics

Sare jahan se accha hindostan hamara
Hum bulbulain hai iss ki yeh gulsitan hamara

Ghurbat men hon agar ham rahta hai dil vatan men
Samjho vahin hamen bhi dil hain jahan hamara

Parbat voh sab se uncha hamsaya asman ka
Voh santari hamara voh pasban hamara

Godi men khelti hain is ki hazaron nadiya
Gulshan hai jin ke dam se rashk-e-janan hamara

Aye ab raud ganga voh din hen yad tujhko
Utara tere kinare jab karvan hamara

Mazhab nahin sikhata apas men bayr rakhna
Hindvi hai ham vatan hai hindostan hamara

Yunan o misr o roma sab mil gaye jahan se
Ab tak magar hai baqi nam o nishan hamara

Kuch bat hai keh hasti milati nahin hamari
Sadiyon raha hai dushman daur e zaman hamara

Iqbal koi meharam apna nahin jahan men
Malum kya kisi ko dard e nihan hamara

Sare jahan se accha hindostan hamara
Ham bulbulain hai is ki yeh gulsitan hamara

Sare Jahan Se Acha Poem Hindi Lyrics

सारे जहाँ से अच्छा हिन्दोस्तां हमारा
हम बुलबुलें हैं इसकी ये गुलिस्तां हमारा

ग़ुर्बत में हों अगर हम, रहता है दिल वतन में
समझो वहीं हमें भी दिल है जहाँ हमारा

परबत वह सबसे ऊँचा, हम्साया आसमाँ का
वह संतरी हमारा, वह पासबाँ हमारा

गोदी में खेलती हैं इसकी हज़ारों नदियाँ
गुल्शन है जिनके दम से रश्क-ए-जनाँ हमारा

ऐ आब-ए-रूद-ए-गंगा! वह दिन हैं याद तुझको
उतरा तेरे किनारे जब कारवाँ हमारा

मजहब नहीं सिखाता आपस में बैर रखना
हिन्दी हैं हम, वतन है हिन्दोस्तां हमारा

यूनान-ओ-मिस्र-ओ-रूमा सब मिट गए जहाँ से
अब तक मगर है बाक़ी नाम-ओ-निशाँ हमारा

कुछ बात है कि हस्ती मिटती नहीं हमारी
सदियों रहा है दुश्मन दौर-ए-ज़माँ हमारा

इक़्बाल! कोई महरम अपना नहीं जहाँ में
मालूम क्या किसी को दर्द-ए-निहाँ हमारा

सारे जहाँ से अच्छा हिन्दोस्तां हमारा
हम बुलबुलें हैं इसकी ये गुलिस्तां हमारा

English Translation

Better than the entire world, is our Hind,
We are its nightingales, and this is our garden

If we are in an alien place, the heart remains in the homeland,
Know us to be only there where our heart is.

That mountain most high, neighbor to the skies
It is our sentinel; it is our protector

A thousand rivers play in its lap
Gardens they sustain, the envy of the heavens is ours

O the flowing waters of the Ganges, do you remember that day
When our caravan first disembarked on your waterfront?

Faith does not teach us to harbor grudges between us
We are all Indians and India is our homeland

In a world in which ancient Greece, Egypt, and Rome have all vanished without a trace
Our own attributes (name and sign) live on today.

Such is our existence that it cannot be erased
Even though, for centuries, the cycle of time has been our enemy.

Iqbal! We have no confidence in this world
What does anyone know of our hidden pain?

Better than the entire world is our Hind,
We are its nightingales, and this is our garden
