Dil Hai Aaina-E-Hairat Se Do-Chaar Aaj Ki Raat

dil hai ā.īna-e-hairat se do-chār aaj kī raat

ġham-e-daurāñ meñ hai aks-e-ġham-e-yār aaj kī raat

koī mansūr se jā kar ye kaho ham-nafaso

huuñ ba-ta.azīr-e-ḳhamoshī sar-e-dār aaj kī raat

ġham ke mehvar pe haiñ Thahre hue aflāk-o-nujūm

merī mahfil meñ nahīñ vaqt ko baar aaj kī raat

na makāñ aaj hai sābit na zamāñ hai sayyār

na ḳhizāñ sho.abada-ārā na bahār aaj kī raat

kabhī firdaus-e-gul-o-lāla thī jo kisht-e-ḳhayāl

us se be-sāḳhta ugte haiñ sharār aaj kī raat

bū-e-ḳhūñ aatī hai sahrā-e-tamannā se mujhe

kheltā huuñ dil-e-vahshī kā shikār aaj kī raat

tujhe mālūm hai ‘ābid’ ki bayāz dil par

nāḳhun-e-ġham ne kiye naqsh-o-nigār aaj kī raat
