allama-iqbal

Abul-Ala-Marri

kahte hain kabhi gosht na khata tha maarri

phal-phul pe karta tha hamesha guzar-auqat

ik dost ne bhuna hua titar use bheja

shayad ki vo shatir isi tarkib se ho maat

ye khvan-e-tar-o-taza maarri ne jo dekha

kahne laga vo sahib-e-ghufran-o-luzumat

ai murghak-e-bechara zara ye to bata tu

tera vo gunah kya tha ye hai jis ki mukafat?

afsos-sad-afsos ki shahin na bana tu

dekhe na tiri aankh ne fitrat ke isharat!

taqdir ke qaazi ka ye fatva hai azal se

hai jurm-e-zaifi ki saza marg-e-mufajat!
