Hum Jahan Rahte Hain Khwabon Ka Nagar Hai Koi

ham jahan rahte hain ḳhvabon ka nagar hai koi

is ḳharabe men na divar na dar hai koi

ja basa tha jo kisi hijr ke sahra men kabhi

ai havao kaho is dil ki ḳhabar hai koi

surat-e-mauj-e-saba log idhar se guzre

ye to anjani havaon ki dagar hai koi

hijr-e-didar bhi mahrumi-e-didar bhi hijr

jo kabhi ḳhatm na ho aisa safar hai koi

main ki andar se pighalta hi chala jaata huun

mere yaḳh-basta badan men bhi sharar hai koi

ye faza raas nahin dasht-mizajon ke liye

is saman-zar men patthar hai na sar hai koi

jism aur jaan ka ye azar ye mahshar ‘akbar’

kisi andesha-e-batin ka asar hai koi
