Aalam e loh e muqaddar hai mera fakr e risa 

Ilm e maloom se bartar hai meri Ilmiyyat,

Hai husuli o huzoori se masawi Nisbat,

Ilm e tasreef me hai mujhko tasrruf hasil

Nauh ke fun me bhi har nauh he nahvi qudrat,

Ilm kehta hai ke hun aalim e tafseer e wajood

Nabz e fun kehta hai harkat me hai meri barkat,

kia nasoot hai aur kia cheez hai maqam e malakoot,

Jabroot aur lahoot pe hai mujhko qudrat,

Mujhe har fun me hai qudrat mujhe har sheh me kamaal

baj raha hai laman ul mulk kakoos e shohrat,

Aalim e Ilm e Tawarikh o khabar hun aesa

kehte hain ahle e khabar mahir e kher o khibrat,

Aalam e quds ko jata hun to seekh ata hun

har ghadi ek naya ilm nayi ek hikmat,

Wo munazir hun nahi hind me jiska saani,

wo mubahis hun karun behes ko Tabe hujjat,

Ilm e auzaan se agha jo ho wo jane,

paekar e sher me chalis tarah ki rangat.

Keemya e ilm e ramal ilm e najoom aur jafar

Sab hai maloom ye jitne hain freb e daulat,

Hai amal me mere ehkaam e hadees o Quran

Ilm e irfaan e salasa me hun sheikh e millat,

Ilm e tehzeeb mere maslak e irfan ka alam 

ilm e Akhlaq mere surat e dil ki Surat,
