Hijr Ki Be-Tabiyan Thin Hasraton Ka Josh Tha

hijr kī be-tābiyāñ thiiñ hasratoñ kā josh thā

husn kā āġhosh phir bhī husn kā āġhosh thā

ham to jis mahfil meñ baiThe shaġhl-e-nāv-nosh thā

zindagī meñ maut bhī aa.egī kis ko hosh thā

zabt karte karte āḳhir phuuT niklī dil kī baat

hañs paḌā gulshan meñ jo bhī ġhuncha-e-ḳhāmosh thā

ehtirām-e-husn kahiye yā use rob-e-jamāl

un kā parde se nikalnā thā ki maiñ behosh thā

mujh se pūchho sarguzasht-e-mai-kada bāda-kasho

thā kabhī merā bhī aalam maiñ bhī bāda-nosh thā

laġhzisheñ merī musallam ibtidā-e-ishq meñ

aap ko bhī kuchh ḳhabar thī aap ko bhī hosh thā

ishq kā e.ajāz thā ye ishq kī tāsīr bhī

dil se jo naala nikaltā thā sukūn-e-gosh thā

koī kyā samjhā mirī dīvāngī ko kyā ḳhabar

aap kī nazroñ meñ thā itnā to mujh ko hosh thā

aaj tasbīh-o-musalllā le ke ‘ārif’ ban gayā

kal jo rūh-e-mai-kada thā rind-o-bāda-nosh thā
