    Default A nice Quote by Saint Kabir

    Bada Hua To Kya Hua, Jaise Ped Khajoor
    Panthi Ko Chaya Nahin, Phal Laage Atidoor

    Translation

    In vain is the eminence, just like a date tree
    No shade for travelers, fruit is hard to reach

    Vocabulary

    Bada = Big
    Ped = Tree
    Khajoor = dates
    ( So Ped Khajoor = Date Palm)
    Panthi = Traveller
    Chaya = Shade
    Phal = fruit

    Meaning

    A date tree grows very tall, projecting eminence and a distinction of its own. Yet, it does not provide shade to weary travelers. Besides, it's fruit grows so far that one cannot easily pluck it.

    Kabir in this doha points out to us about our vain personalities. What good is our so called eminence, if it is neither compassionate nor helpful to others? Kabir emphasizes that we should shed our greed, selfishness and insecure tendencies and establish ourselves in such a way that we should be willing to give and share. Only then we will be blessed and become a blessing to others.

    In Hindi Words for love are Pyar or Mohobbat

    To Say I LOVE YOU

    Mein = I
    Tumhe = You

    Mein Tumhe Pyar Karta Hoon.



    Hindi for Hatred is Nafrat

    Aisee Vani Boliye, Mun Ka Aapa Khoye
    Apna Tan Sheetal Kare, Auran Ko Sukh Hoye

    Translation

    Speak such words, sans ego's ploy
    Body remains composed, giving the listener joy


    Meaning

    Soothing, compassionate and loving words breed togetherness, while harsh speech breeds hatred. And, we also know that human speech is one of the main ingredient that differentiates mankind from the rest of the animal kingdom.

    Thus, Kabir, in this doha crystallizes the power of the spoken word. He teaches us to speak in such a manner that keeps us harmonious and composed thereby making the listener feel a sense of respect and brotherhood.

    Experiment yourself and rediscover the power of the spoken word.

    There is Another popular Hindi Saying in the above context.

    It goes like this

    Kaman se Nikla Hua Teer
    Zuban se Niklay Huey Shabd Kabhi Wapas nahi Aate.


    Kaman = Bow
    Teer = Arrow
    Zuban = Tongue
    Shabd = Words

    Translation

    An Arrow from the Bow and
    Words spoken by the Tongue can Never be Traced Back.


    Meaning
    The saying emphsis on the power of words. We must be careful with our speech. Bad words can go a long way and can cause a lot of damage.

    Dear Friend You will be Amazed that how many Words of Arabic origin we use in Hindi.
    the list is so long that it will take the whole night. But I give a little example

    Hawa = Wind
    Haq = Right
    Zulm = Cruelty
    Halwa = A Sweet dish

    And lot's more

    (The first time I heard Nancy's 'Liya Haq' I found it so easy to understand.)

    But Does the Word Nafrat means the same in Arabic too.

    But in the sentence

    Mein tumhein Pyar Karta Hoon

    It acts as a verb.

    you can also translate the above sentence as

    I do love you

    Default A Quote by Rahim ji

    Rahiman Dhaga Prem Ka Mat todo chatkaye
    Tutey se Phir na Jude, jude Ganth Pad jaye.


    Vocabulary

    Dhaga = Thread
    Prem = Love
    Ganth = Knot

    Meaning

    Don't allow the delicate thread of love (between individuals) to snap. Once it snaps, it cannot be rejoined and if you do rejoin it, there is a knot in it.

    Default Common Hindi And Arabic Words

    As I Mentioned that Both Hindi and Arabic have a lot of Words in Common. The More Arabic songs I listen the more words I find. Particularly the Words Containing Z sound because Hindi does not have any sound for Z
    So all the 'Za' words that we use are mostly taken from Arabic or Persian.
    In this post I will be regularly updating more such Common Shared Words.


    Duniya = World
    Sabr = Patience
    Maut = Death
    Hal = Solution
    Haal = Condition
    Rooh = Soul
    Shakkar =- Sugar
    Zikar = Mention
    Diljaley = Broken Heart
    Hawa = Wind or Air
    Dawa = Medicine
    Mujrim = criminal
    Ehsaas = Feeling or Sensation
    Umar = Lifetime
    Safar = Trip
    Baad = After
    Naseeb = Destiny
    Manzil = destination
    Musafir = Traveller
    Shater = Clever
    Nazar = look
    Fan = Art
    San = Year

    Well the Hindi counter part of Precious is Keemati.

    Keemat = Cost


    or Anmol

    Mol = Prize

    and something that is wuithout any Prize is An + Mol = Anmol (Prizeless)
