    Dear Urdu speakers,

    I can't find a translation for this phrase anywhere, تارکين دينا, Tarkeen e Deena. It is in relation to religious reform.

    Hi Daniel,

    Are you sure about the phrase? If you could post the sentence in which these words occur, that could be helpful. By the way, one should mention the language in the title.

    It might have been تاركين دنيا

    The thought did cross my mind but it is not a term I am familiar with. This is why I thought a bit of context might be helpful.

    For purposes of learning, here are the words, separately, from Platt's. Note that taarik, from "to abandon", is given with the phrase taarik-ud-dunyaa so it must be a common use of taarik?

    A تارك tārik (act. part of ترك 'to abandon,' &c.), part. adj. & s.m. Leaving, forsaking, abandoning, relinquishing;—a deserter:—tārikuʼd-dunyā, adj. & s.m. Abandoning the world; abstinent, sober, chaste;—an anchorite, a recluse, hermit.

    A دنيا dunyā (fem. of ادني adnā, 'nearer,' &c.; rt. دنو 'to be or become near'), s.f. (lit. 'Nearer, nearest, former'); the present world, the present life or state of existence; the people of this world, people; a whole world, a multitude;—worldly

    I find the etymology of dunyaa (literally meaning "nearest" - *this* world) very interesting!
