dard Ki daulat-e-Nayab Ko Ruswa Na Karo

dard ki daulat-e-nayab ko rusva na karo

vo nazar raaz hai us raaz ka charcha na karo

vus.at-e-dasht men divane bhaTak jaate hain

dosto ahu-e-ram-ḳhurda ka pichha na karo

tum muqaddar ka sitara ho mire paas raho

tum jabin-e-shab-e-namnak pe ubhra na karo

pas-e-divar bhi divar ka aalam hoga

tum yunhi rauzan-e-divar se jhanka na karo

ghar palaT aane men afiyat-e-jan hai yaaro

jab hava tez chale raah men Thahra na karo

ya dil-o-dida ko tanvir-e-mohabbat baḳhsho

ya dam-e-sub.h zamane men ujala na karo

ye jahan-e-guzaran haath kise aaya hai

pichhe muḌ muḌ ke kisi shaḳhs ko dekha na karo

bhagte lamhe ko kab rok saka hai koi

vo to ik saaya hai saae ki tamanna na karo

sar salamat nahin rahte hain zaban kaTti hai

pattharon ko kabhi bhule se bhi sajda na karo

pyaas bujhti hai kahan tapte bayabanon ki

miri ankhon miri ankho yunhi barsa na karo

ziist hai tez-qadam aage nikal jaegi

tum kisi moḌ pe rukne ka irada na karo

kuchh idhar saae hain jo baḌh ke lipaT jaate hain

‘aḳhtar’ is raah se ho kar kabhi guzra na karo
