Aatish-E-Ishq-E-Bala Aag Lagae Na Bane

ātish-e-ishq-e-balā aag lagā.e na bane

aur ham us ko bujhā.eñ to bujhā.e na bane

rañg-e-ruḳh uḌne pe aaj jaa.e to roke na ruke

laakh vo raaz chhupā.eñ to chhupā.e na bane

kyā maza ho na rahe yaad jo andāz-e-jafā

maiñ kahūñ bhī ki satāo to satā.e na bane

ḳhud vafā hai mirī shāhid ki vafādār huuñ maiñ

laakh tum dil se bhulāo to bhulā.e na bane

dil ke har zarra meñ hai soz-e-mohabbat kī numūd

ḳhaak meñ in ko milā.ūñ to milā.e na bane

rāh-e-ulfat ne kuchh aisī mirī sūrat badlī

dāman-e-dasht chhupā.e to chhupā.e na bane

dil ko ab tāb-e-talāfī o mudāvā abhī nahīñ

chāragar aa.e to ehsān uThā.e na bane

koī ḳhāka mirī tasvīr kā khīñche to sahī

khiñch bhī jaa.e koī naqsha to miTā.e na bane

maut qaabū kī nahīñ aur na Thikānā is kā

koī vaqt us pe bhī aa.e ki banā.e na bane

aise Dhab se ho gilā un kī sitam kā ai ‘shauq’

baat kuchh chāheñ banānī to banā.e na bane
