Apne Abru Aaine Mein Dekh Kar Bismil Hua

apne abru aaine men dekh kar bismil hua

khinch kar talvar apna aap vo qatil hua

bhaag kar kab tujh se jan-bar koi ai qatil hua

ud chala gar hosh apna tair-e-bismil hua

ab kahan naale ki us laila ka maskan dil hua

tha jaras jo pesh-e-azin vo in dinon mahmil hua

nam-e-nek ahal-e-hukumat ko kahan hasil hua

khalq men mashhur ik nau-shervan aadil hua

sar se pa tak har sanobar hi faqat kya dil hua

dekh kar us sarv-qad ko sarv bhi maail hua

is ada se baadh dekhi aap ne talvar ki

tair-e-rang-e-hina bhi tair-e-bismil hua

dhyan us ke band karne ka agar aata tujhe

kyuun na tera rakhna-e-dar mera chak-e-dil hua

hai ye gham jan-kah khal-e-abru-e-khamdar ka

kaabe men kahida ho kar sang-e-asvad dil hua

jo yahan maghlub hai uqba men ghalib hai vahi

markab-e-maqtul hai ik roz jo qatil hua

dhoe hain dhobi ne dariya men jo kapde yaar ke

aaj koson tak moattar daman-e-sahil hua

dilbari ka jab hua us sarv-qamat ko khayal

uzv uzv apna vahin misl-e-sanobar dil hua

sab ke khaliq ne banae kasa-e-sar vazhgun

aadmi is par bhi pesh-e-admi saail hua

bujh gaya mera charagh-e-dagh vasl-e-yar men

nur-e-mah nazdiki-e-khurshed se zaail hua

jo pari-ru baithta hai aa ke uth sakta nahin

ab to naqsh-e-boriya ka khuub main aamil hua

jazb-e-jinsiyyat baham rahne nahin deta firaq

kal bana jo jism-e-khaki aaj gil-dar-gil hua

haae kis qatil-ada se ki shurua us ne namaz

nikli jab takbir us ke munh se main bismil hua

kahte hain zahid miri divangi ko dekh kar

but-parasti ke sabab qahr-e-khuda nazil hua

jab tasavvur yaar ka bandha ham aap aae nazar

samne ankhon ke aina hamara dil hua

ashiq-e-be-nang se hota hai mashuqon ko nang

pairahan majnun ka phat kar parda-e-mahmil hua

samne mere raha gar shaam se le ta-sahar

husn men gar misl-e-mah-e-chardah kamil hua

ruh-e-‘nasikh’ hai usi ki ruh-e-aqdas par nisar

barha jis ke liye ruhul-qudus nazil hua
