I am left with no hope at all,
No possibility to reach my goal,

The Day of my death is fixed,
I am so very anxious that I can not sleep all night.

Though I know the reward of obedience and worship,
But I have no tendency for it.

I am silent for a certain reason,
Otherwise I can convince you with my words,

Why I shouldn’t cry,
For when I don’t, she asks about me,

My heart is burning, though you cannot see the spot,
But O my doctor, can’t you smell my heart burn?

I have reached to a certain state,
From where even I cannot find myself.

I am dying (Waiting anxiously) for my death,
I don’t know where the hell my death has gone.

With what face you will go to Ka’ba, O! Ghalib,
You should be ashamed of yourself while thinking to go there

Rahye Ab Aysi jagha Chal kar Jeha’N koi Na Ho, Humsukhen Koi Na Ho Aur humzaba’N koi Na Ho

Rahye Ab Aysi jagha Chal kar Jeha’N koi Na Ho, Humsukhen Koi Na Ho Aur humzaba’N koi Na Ho

    I think this would be a better translation(Just my opinion, and I’m not an expert)

    I have reached a state where even I do not know myself
    I die in the desperate wait for death, yet I do not die
    Oh how shall you/shalt thou face the Kaaba, Ghalib,
    When you don’t feel ashamed for the state you keep yourself in?
