If you were metal you would be beaten and then form into sword Hoo
Like comb you get sawn then you shall be filled with beloved’s tresses Hoo
Like henna you are beaten then you shall colour beloved’s palms Hoo
Like cotton buds you are thrashed then will become turban Hoo
If you are true ardent lover ‘Bahoo’ then you shell drink the goblet of love Hoo
Commentary by M. A. Khan
O dervish in order to be ardent lover you have to undergo all forms of hardships on the path. Such like if you are hard as metal and you have to undergo hammering of blacksmith in become a sword. If you were able to be sawn to become a comb and get close to beloved tresses. Like henna you will be grinded so that you will colour the palm of beloved. Like cotton you will be thrashed so that beloved turban be made. Only if you are true ardent love O ‘Bahoo’ then you will drink the goblet of true love.
