Fareb Shab Ka Giraftar Rahun Bachao Mujhe

fareb shab kā giraftār rahūñ bachāo mujhe

jalā ke sham.a koī rāsta dikhāo mujhe

zabān-e-hāl se kahtī hai yaad maazī kī

tumhārī raah kī dīvār huuñ girāo mujhe

kahāñ huuñ dasht-e-talab meñ mujhe patā to chale

mirā bhī naam pukāro koī bulāo mujhe

maiñ nam zamīn kā paudā huuñ suukh jā.ūñgā

sulagtī dhuup ke sahrā meñ mat lagāo mujhe

koī mata-e-hunar dast-e-be-hunar ke liye

kahāniyāñ na karāmāt kī sunāo mujhe

biThā ke nīche ghaTāte ho kyuuñ mujhe har baar

bhale ko apne kabhī dāhine biThāo mujhe

mire sulūk kī sūrat badal nahīñ saktī

hazār zulm-o-sitam kar ke āzmāo mujhe

ye be-ruḳhī ye taġhāful kahāñ talak pyāre

tumhāre kaam hī ā.ūñgā mat gañvāo mujhe

nigal na jaa.e kahīñ mujh ko dasht-e-ḳhāmoshī

akelā chhoḌ ke jaao na ai sadāo mujhe

mujhe bhī shauq hai paḌhne kā ye kitāb-e-ġhazal

kahīñ se muft meñ haath aa.e to batāo mujhe
