Rashk-e-Qamar / Rashke Qamar Meaning

rashk is an Urdu word, close in meaning to envy, though in rashk, one wants to be like someone without harming them, so it's more like rivalry than envy that way.

Qamar is Urdu for the moon, and hence, rashk-e-qamar or rashke qamar (also written rashke kamar sometimes, though the 'k' sounds instead of q will change the meaning) means someone even the moon wants to be like. That is, someone so beautiful as even the moon wants to be. In simpler words, one could say moon's envy, or moon's competition/rival.
