Ajib Shai Hai Tarah-Dar Bhi Tamanna Bhi

ajiib shai hai tarah-dār bhī tamannā bhī

raqīb-e-jāñ bhī hai qātil bhī hai masīhā bhī

udaas udaas harīm-e-nigāh be-manzar

dhuāñ dhuāñ ḳhalish-e-rā.egāñ se duniyā bhī

dil-o-dimāġh-o-nafas tishnagī se haiñ raushan

isī kī aag meñ jalte haiñ shahar-o-sahrā bhī

vahī havā-e-jahāñ-tāb mo’atabar hai ki jo

jilā ke chhoḌ ga.ī hai charāġh-e-fardā bhī

talab meñ mujh se to lamha bhī ik nahīñ kaTtā

isī ḳhumār ne kaaTe haiñ koh-o-dariyā bhī

tire ḳhayāl se ḳhalvat bhī anjuman hai mujhe

tire ḳhayāl se hoñ anjuman meñ tanhā bhī

fazā-e-ḳhvāb-e-tarab ne jagā diyā mujh ko

lagī jo aañkh to hone lagā saverā bhī
