Basti Ki Ladkiyon Ke Nam

chal ai nasim-e-sahra ruh-o-ravan-e-sahra

mera payam le ja su-e-butan-e-sahra

sahrai mahvashon ki khidmat men ja ke kahna

bhule nahin tumhen ham ai dukhtaran-e-sahra

gar bas chale to aaen aur dard-e-dil sunaen

tum ko gale lagaen ham phir miyan-e-sahra

tum najd men pareshan shahron men ham hain hairan

allah ki amaan ho tum par butan-e-sahra

tum is tarah ghamon se behal ho rahi ho

ham is taraf hain muztar daman-kushan-e-sahra

ham paas aaen kyuun kar tum ko bulaen kyuun kar

ye dukh mitaen kyuun kar vamandgan-e-sahra

betab hain alam se be-khvab ranj-o-gham se

kya puchhti ho ham se ai dil-baran-e-sahra

tum yaad kar rahi ho bedad kar rahi ho

barbad kar rahi ho ai gul-rukhan-e-sahra

ye kya kaha ki tum ho ranginiyon ke khugar

ghamgin hain tum se badh kar ai gham-kushan-e-sahra

ye raat ye ghataen ye shor ye havaen

bichhde hue milenge kyunkar miyan-e-sahra

shahron ki zindagi se ham tang aa chuke hain

sahra men phir bula lo ai sakinan-e-sahra

yad-e-sumum ho ya sarsar ke tund tufan

Darte nahin kisi se dil-dadgan-e-sahra

abadiyon men hasil azadiyan nahin hain

aa jaao tum hi ud kar o tairan-e-sahra

sahra ki vusaton men ham ko na bhuul jaana

o dukhtaran-e-sahra o ahuvan-e-sahra

ai abr chup na rahna mera fasana kahna

mil jaae gar kahin vo sarv-e-ravan-e-sahra

dashti ki dhun men saaqi ik naghma-e-iraqi

haan phir suna ba-yad-e-gul-chehargan-e-sahra

ankhon men bas raha hai naqsh-e-butan-e-sahra

o dastan-sara chhed ik dastan-e-sahra

mastana ja raha hai phir karvan-e-sahra

haan jhuum kar hudi-khvan ik dastan-e-sahra

dehat ki fazaen ankhon men phir rahi hain

dil men sama rahi hai yad-e-butan-e-sahra

nazron pe chha raha hai vo chandni ka manzar

sahra men khelti thiin jab huryan-e-sahra

vo chandni ka mausam vo be-khudi ka aalam

vo nuur ka samundar reg-e-ravan-e-sahra

jalve mah-e-javan ke vo rang-e-karvan ke

vo naghme sarban ke raqsan miyan-e-sahra

kyunkar na yaad aaen vo sim-gun fazaen

vo asman-e-sahra mah-e-ravan-e-sahra

vo kam-sinon ke gaane vo khel vo tarane

be-fikri ke fasane vird-e-zaban-e-sahra

kheton men ghumte the har gul ko chumte the

masti men jhumte the jab mai-kashan-e-sahra

vo gaanv vo fazaen vo fasl vo havaen

vo khet vo ghataen vo asman-e-sahra

phir yaad aa rahi hain phir dil dukha rahi hain

majnun bana rahi hain laila-vashan-e-sahra

raton ko chhup ke aana aur shane ko hilana

hai yaad vo jagana ham ko miyan-e-sahra

vo un ki shokh ankhen vo un ki saada nazren

be-khud bana rahi hain doshizgan-e-sahra

vo ishq-pesha huun main jis ke javan naghme

gaata hai chandni men har naujavan-e-sahra

ik badviyat ka ashiq sahraiyat se be-khud

‘akhtar’ bhi apni dhun men hai ik javan-e-sahra
