Need to Translate , Farsi & Urdu
 
Hello all , I ve been a long time lurker on these forums and have gained considerable knowledge to assist me in my pursuit of collecting arms and armor. As this my first post a bit of about myself , I m a Canadian who collects antique stuff from India mostly concentrating from the Northern Region of tbe subcontinent.

Ive recently acquired a 19th century tulwar and wanted some help from any of the members here cuz I h e been getting different answers from diff ppl that I have approached. The first line is in Farsi (Persian/Iran) and I believe the 2nd line is in Urdu ?.

You need to provide photos of the complete weapon and of the script you require to be translated, if possible, by one of the more knowledgable members of the forum.

So I have been told that the inscription in the first picture says "BAHADUR SHAH GHAZI MARHOON SAYA KHUDA" = Bahadur Shah being the person who was a "Ghazi" perished and now rest with God.

Now if I can only find out what the second inscription is and apparently both are written in Farsi which used to be the "Court' language" during mughal times.
