Be-KHabar Hone Se Pahle Ki KHabar to Dekhte

be-ḳhabar hone se pahle kī ḳhabar to dekhte

Dūbte sūraj kī jānib ik nazar to dekhte

chheḌ kar zikr-e-judā.ī sāmne us ke kabhī

us ke chehre se huvaidā us kā Dar to dekhte

dekhne us ko galī kī samt gar jaane ko the

auj par betābi-e-dīvār-o-dar to dekhte

jis ne milnā hī nahīñ hai us ko paane kī talāsh

be-vajah kar ke kabhī koī safar to dekhte

haath se chhū kar nahīñ to paas hī jā kar use

shahar meñ utrā hai ik rashk-e-qamar to dekhte

garmiyoñ meñ dasht-e-hijrāñ kā safar rakhnā kabhī

dhuup meñ jal kar samar dete shajar to dekhte

raat kī tārīkiyoñ meñ ghar se niklo to ‘na.īm’

dekhte haiñ kis tarah se be-basar to dekhte
