momin-khan-momin

Dil Mein Us Shokh Ke Jo Rah Na Ki

dil men us shokh ke jo raah na ki

ham ne bhi jaan di par aah na ki

parda-poshi zarur thi ai charkh

kyuun shab-e-bul-havas siyah na ki

tishna-lab aise ham gire mai par

ki kabhi sair-e-id-gah na ki

us ko dushman se kya bachiye vo charkh

jis ne tadbir-e-khasaf-e-mah na ki

kaun aisa ki us se puchhe kyuun

pursish-e-hal dad-khvah na ki

tha bahut shauq-e-vasl tu ne to

kami ai husn ta-ba-gah na ki

ishq men kaam kuchh nahin aata

gar na ki hirs-o-mal-o-jah na ki

tab-e-kam-zarf ko kahan tum ne

dushmani ki adu se chaah na ki

main bhi kuchh khush nahin vafa kar ke

tum ne achchha kiya nibah na ki

mohtasib ye sitam gharibon par

kabhi tambih-e-badshah na ki

girya-o-ah be-asar donon

kis ne kashti miri tabah na ki

tha muqaddar main us se kam milna

kyuun mulaqat gaah gaah na ki

dekh dushman ko uth gaya be-did

mere ahval par nigah na ki

‘momin’ is zehn-e-be-khata par haif

fikr amurzish-e-gunah na ki
