Stop, enough of your learning, my friend
You need know only ’Alif’ in the end
Ilmo bus kariyo yaar
(learning/knowledge stop now friend)
Tainnu ikko alaf darkaar
(for-you one alif enough/suffices)
The letter Alif (Allah; A, alpha) here represents the divine. Bulle Shah rejects the mire of dogmatism and sophistry in ritualized religion, and instead advises us focus on the essence of God through simple living.
