Hai Kyun Naql-E-Makani Ye Hawa-E-Taza-Tar Kya Hai

hai kyuuñ naql-e-makānī ye havā-e-tāza-tar kyā hai

samajh meñ kuchh nahīñ aatā idhar kyā hai udhar kyā hai

numūd-e-ibtidā kyā intihā kyā hai bashar kyā hai

ye kār-e-naqsh-gar kyuuñ hai ye hairat kā safar kyā hai

razā us kī to phir chubhtā huā ye neshtar kyā hai

badan kyuuñ hai hisār-e-ḳhauf meñ āñkhoñ meñ Dar kyā hai

jo sach pūchho ye tasvīreñ kisī ik kaifiyat kī haiñ

ḳharosh-e-naġhma-zan kyuuñ hai sadā-e-nauha-gar kyā hai

na honā bhī hai honā be-makānī lā-makānī hai

sar-e-kohsār yā farsh-e-zamīñ par huuñ ḳhabar kyā hai

nahīñ bujhtī shikam kī aag kār-e-be-sukūnī meñ

sarīr-o-tāj-o-kishvar kyā manāl-o-māl-o-zar kyā hai

jise nā-ḳhūb kahte haiñ usī ko ḳhuub kahte haiñ

tamīz-e-ḳhair-o-shar meñ nukta-e-sad-motabar kyā hai

parī-timsāl haiñ sub.heñ garībāñ-chāk haiñ shāmeñ

talattuf hai ki mahshar jaane tāsīr-e-nazar kyā hai

faqat ik lams jism-o-rūh ko shādāb rakhtā hai

hunar-mandoñ se pūchho qand-lab meñ ye hunar kyā hai

harī thiiñ khetiyāñ murjhā ga.iiñ bād-e-bahārī se

na jaane phuul se chehre kā mausam par asar kyā hai

dam-e-nazzāra us ne chupke chupke khol diiñ zulfeñ

mirā ye pūchhnā hī thā ki nāz-e-bahr-o-bar kyā hai

‘amīn-ashraf’ vo rahtā hai kahīñ is shahr meñ lekin

mile koī to pūchhūñ sūrat-e-dīvār-o-dar kyā hai
