Baja Ki Naqsh-E-Kaf-E-Pa Pe Sar Bhi Rakhna Hai

bajā ki naqsh-e-kaf-e-pā pe sar bhī rakhnā hai

magar buland maqām-e-nazar bhī rakhnā hai

saḳhāvat aisī dikhā.ī ki ghar luTā baiThe

na sochā ye bhī ki kuchh apne ghar bhī rakhnā hai

hoñ zaḳhm zaḳhm kahāñ tak maiñ chāragar se kahūñ

idhar bhī rakhnā hai marham udhar bhī rakhnā hai

ye jabr dekho ki rahnā bhī hai sar-e-maqtal

har ek vaar bhī sahnā hai sar bhī rakhnā hai

rah-e-hayāt meñ thaknā bhī hai yaqīnī sā

phir apne aap ko vaqf-e-safar bhī rakhnā hai

ilāhī ḳhair ki tūfān-e-bād-o-bārāñ meñ

hameñ bachānā hai ḳhud ko bhī ghar meñ rakhnā hai

ye kyā sitam hai ki sayyād ham asīroñ ko

rihā bhī karnā hai be-bāl-o-par bhī rakhnā hai

kise batā.eñ ki ġham us kī be-niyāzī kā

vo ġham hai jis se use be-ḳhabar bhī rakhnā hai

musāfiro abhī manzil ke haiñ paḌāv bahut

isī hisāb se zād-e-safar bhī rakhnā hai

ye uzr hai ki unheñ niiñd aane lagtī hai

bayān-e-qissa-e-ġham muḳhtasar bhī rakhnā hai

‘vaqār’ tum suḳhn-o-āgahī se guzre ho

tumhī ko pās-e-‘vaqār’-e-hunar bhī rakhnā hai
