Aaj Aaraish-E-Gesu-E-Dota Hoti Hai

aaj araish-e-gesu-e-dota hoti hai

phir miri jaan giraftar-e-bala hoti hai

shauq-e-pa-bosi-e-janan mujhe baaqi hai hanuz

ghaas jo ugti hai turbat pe hina hoti hai

phir kisi kaam ka baaqi nahin rahta insan

sach to ye hai ki mohabbat bhi bala hoti hai

jo zamin kucha-e-qatil men nikalti hai nai

vaqf vo bahr-e-mazar-e-shohada hoti hai

jis ne dekhi ho vo chitvan koi us se puchhe

jaan kyun-kar hadaf-e-tir-e-qaza hoti hai

nazaa ka vaqt bura vaqt hai ḳhaliq ki panah

hai vo saaat ki qayamat se siva hoti hai

ruuh to ek taraf hoti hai ruḳhsat tan se

aarzu ek taraf dil se juda hoti hai

ḳhud samajhta huun ki rone se bhala kya hasil

par karun kya yunhi taskin zara hoti hai

raundte phirte hain vo majma-e-aghyar ke saath

ḳhuub tauqir-e-mazar-e-shohada hoti hai

murgh-e-bismil ki tarah lot gaya dil mera

nigah-e-naz ki tasir bhi kya hoti hai

naala kar lene den lillah na chheden ahbab

zabt karta huun to taklif siva hoti hai

jism to ḳhaak men mil jaate hue dekhte hain

ruuh kya jaane kidhar jaati hai kya hoti hai

huun fareb-e-sitam-e-yar ka qaail ‘akbar’

marte marte na khula ye ki jafa hoti hai
