Bazar-E-Dahr Mein Teri Manzil Kahan Na Thi

bazar-e-dahr men tiri manzil kahan na thi

yusuf na jis men ho koi aisi dukan na thi

zardi ne mere rang ki mujh ko rula diya

hansvae jo kisi ko ye vo zafaran na thi

zahir se khub-ruyon ka batin khilaf tha

shirin-labon ki tarah se un ki zaban na thi

manzil hi duur hai jo ye pahunchi nahin hanuz

dam lene vaali raah men umr-e-ravan na thi

dikhlai sair ankhon ko bam-e-murad ki

aisi koi kamand koi nardban na thi

qaus-e-quzah se ham ne bhi tashbih di use

chilla na hone se jo vo abru kaman na thi

agah jazb-e-ishq-e-zulekha se tha na husn

yusuf ko chaah men khabar-e-karvan na thi

yaad aa gai jo silk-e-guhar tere gosh ki

suhan-e-ruh thi mujhe shab kahkashan na thi

rah jaana pichhe jism ka jaan se ajab nahin

kis karvan ki gard pas-e-karvan na thi

na-fahmi ki dalil hai ye sajda se aaya

iblis ko haqiqat-e-adam ayaan na thi

ashiq ke sar ke saath hai sauda-e-ku-e-yar

momin na tha vo jis ko hava-e-jinan na thi

bang-e-jaras se aage har ik ka qadam raha

gard apne karvan ke pas-e-karvan na thi

afsos kya javani-e-rafta ka kijiye

vo kaun si bahar thi jis ko khizan na thi

nalon se ek din na kiye garm gosh-e-yar

‘atish’ magar tumhare dahan men zaban na thi
