Band Hain Dil Ke Dariche Raushni Madum Hai

band haiñ dil ke darīche raushnī mādūm hai

ab jo apnā hashr honā hai hameñ ma.alūm hai

hasb-e-nairañg-e-jahāñ dil shaad yā maġhmūm hai

aadmī jazbāt kā hākim nahīñ mahkūm hai

ab takalluf bartaraf ye aap ko ma.alūm hai

kyuuñ mirā ḳhvāb-e-vafā ta.abīr se mahrūm hai

husn ḳhud taḌpā kiyā hai mujh ko taḌpāne ke ba.ad

sochnā paḌtā hai vo zālim hai yā mazlūm hai

ḳhvāb āḳhir ḳhvāb hai is ḳhvāb kā kyā e’tibār

jannat-e-nazzāra goyā jannat-e-mauhūm hai

haa.e ye tarfa ma.āl-e-ārzū-e-sub.h-e-nau

jis taraf nazreñ uThātā huuñ fazā masmūm hai

mere kirdār-e-vafā kī ā.īna-dārī ba-ḳhair

kyuuñ zabān-e-dost par al-shāz-o-kal-mādūm hai

dekhne kī chiiz hai ye sehr-e-andāz-e-nazar

un kā har mub.ham ishāra hāmil-e-mafhūm hai

ḳhaar bhī nā-mutma.in haiñ phuul bhī nā-mutma.in

bāġhbāñ ke is nizām-e-gulistāñ kī dhuum hai

ab use māhaul jis qālib meñ chāhe Dhaal de

fitratan to aadmī ik paikar-e-mafhūm hai

jo bharī mahfil meñ nazroñ kī huī hai guftugū

husn ko ma.alūm hai yā ishq ko ma.alūm hai

kitnī kaif-āvar hai in kī shirkat-e-ġham bhī ‘urūj’

mātam-e-dil kī jagah jashn-e-dil-e-marhūm hai
