In this transcreation, the original Gurmukhi is followed by an English transcription to guide pronunciation of the Sabad (Divine-Word) in its original form.

ਯਕ ਅਰਜ ਗੁਫਤਮ ਪੇਸਿ ਤੋ ਦਰ ਗੋਸ ਕੁਨ ਕਰਤਾਰ ॥
yak araj guphatam pesi to dar gos kun kartār.
یک عرض گفتم پس تو در گوش کن کرتار .
I said one supplication so You listen, O Creator.
    Guru Nanak Sahib in Rag Tilang | Guru Granth Sahib 721


In this transcreation, the original Gurmukhi is followed by an English transcription to guide pronunciation of the Sabad (Divine-Word) in its original form. Persian as written in Gurmukhi script and Perso-Arabic script often entails different spellings and pronunciations of words with the same meaning, and as such the Persian transcription is written with spellings that allow a modern-day Persian reader to understand the text.

This Sabad grounds itself in Persian and Islamic religious references. For the sabads written in fluent Persian, the Perso-Arabic script will be styled for a modern-day Persian speaker to read and understand. For the sabads infused with Persian vocabulary, the focus is transcription.
