Allah Ai Buto Hamein Dikhlae Lucknow

allah ai buto hamen dikhlae lucknow

sote men bhi ye kahte hain ham haae lucknow

aisa hua huun hijr men us ke nahif-o-zar

dekhe agar mujhe vahin sharmae lucknow

aae na mere paas to main aap hi chalun

mujh ko khuda kare kahin bulvae lucknow

kalkatta ke hasinon ko jab dekh leta huun

us vaqt dil men hota hai sauda-e-lucknow

ab lut gaya hai kya raha dozakh se badh ke hai

rashk-e-bahisht kahte the sab ja-e-lucknow

khush-chashmi ahuon ki vo bhule jahan men

dekhe jo aankh nargis-e-shahla-e-lucknow

gulshan ajab bahar ke har qasr rashk-e-khuld

aur gomti ghazab ki hai dariya-e-lucknow

hur-o-pari ko rashk tha ik ek shakhs par

be-misl the sabhi mah-e-sima-e-lucknow

marne ke baad bhi na mitega jigar se daagh

jannat men ham ko hoegi parva-e-lucknow

jab se hata hai vo tah-o-bala ye ho gaya

jannat koi zarur tha bala-e-lucknow

main kya kahun faqiron ko jo kuchh ghurur tha

ik ik gada-e-shahr tha dara-e-lucknow

hatta nahin tasavvur-e-asbab-o-mulk-o-mal

kanon men baj rahi hai vo shahna-e-lucknow

kya kya hasin the jama paristan ka takhta tha

nazron men phirte hain rukh-e-zeba-e-lucknow

shahon pe fakhr karte the is mulk ke gada

tha misl-e-jam-e-jam mai-o-mina-e-lucknow

har-chand laakh tarah bhulata huun yaad ko

‘akhtar’ pukar uthta hai dil haae lucknow
