Dana Hue Buzurg Hue Rahnuma Hue

daanā hue buzurg hue rahnumā hue

vo din ki ham the sham-e-majālis havā hue

un ko nahīñ dimāġh-e-talazzuz jahān meñ

jo ibtidā se vaqf-e-ġham-e-intihā hue

ḳhurshed kī nigāh se shabnam hai mushtahar

vo āshnā hue haiñ to sab āshnā hue

manzil hai shahryārī-e-ālam to dekhnā

is raah meñ hazāroñ qabīle fanā hue

had se ziyāda ham ne ḳhushāmad butoñ kī kī

ye log baḌhte baḌhte bil-āḳhir ḳhudā hue

is kā bhī kuchh hisāb kareñge ba-roz-e-hashr

naale azal se kitne sipurd-e-sabā hue

karte rahe huzūr pe takiya aḳhīr tak

ham āsare ke hone se be-āsrā hue

kis din hamārā hirs-o-havā se barī thā dil

kis roz ham se apne farīze adā hue
