    Default Translate Urdu Proverbs into English


    Doodh ka jala chhaachh bhi phoonk phoonk kar pita hai.

    Saanp ka dasa rassi se bhi darta hai.


    لا الہ الا اللہ محمد رسول اللہ
    لقد كان لكم في رسول الله اسوة حسنة

    The Messenger of Allaah said: "Convey from me, even if it is one verse."

    Don't know about the first one, but the second equals the English proverb,

    "One who's been bitten by a serpent, dreads a rope."

    Actually, in terms of the lesson from the proverb, they both mean the same thing, but I was trying to find an English equivalent of the first one.

    Proverb -A burnt child dreads the fire.

    Chinese Version: One bitten by a snake for a snap dreads a rope for a decade.一朝被蛇咬,十年怕井绳

    Indian Version: The one burnt by hot milk drinks even cold buttermilk with precaution. Transliteration: Doodh ka jala chaanch ko bhi phook phook ke peeta hai.

    Meaning: Similar to this proverb "Once bitten, twice shy"

    This Proverb intimates, that it is natural for all living creatures, whether rational or irrational, to consult their own security, and self-preservation; and whether they act by instinct or reason, it still tends to some care of avoiding those things that have already done them an Injury. - Divers Proverbs, Nathan Bailey, 1721 [1]
