Hum Ji Rahe Hain Koi Bahana Kiye Baghair

ham jī rahe haiñ koī bahāna kiye baġhair

us ke baġhair us kī tamannā kiye baġhair

ambār us kā parda-e-hurmat banā miyāñ

dīvār tak nahīñ girī pardā kiye baġhair

yārāñ vo jo hai merā masīhā-e-jān-o-dil

be-had aziiz hai mujhe achchhā kiye baġhair

maiñ bistar-e-ḳhayāl pe leTā huuñ us ke paas

sub.h-e-azal se koī taqāzā kiye baġhair

us kā hai jo bhī kuchh hai mirā aur maiñ magar

vo mujh ko chāhiye koī saudā kiye baġhair

ye zindagī jo hai use ma.anā bhī chāhiye

va.ada hameñ qubūl hai iifā kiye baġhair

ai qātiloñ ke shahr bas itnī hī arz hai

maiñ huuñ na qatl koī tamāshā kiye baġhair

murshid ke jhuuT kī to sazā be-hisāb hai

tum chhoḌiyo na shahr ko sahrā kiye baġhair

un āñganoñ meñ kitnā sukūn o surūr thā

ārā.ish-e-nazar tirī parvā kiye baġhair

yārāñ ḳhushā ye roz o shab-e-dil ki ab hameñ

sab kuchh hai ḳhush-gavār gavārā kiye baġhair

girya-kunāñ kī fard meñ apnā nahīñ hai naam

ham girya-kun azal ke haiñ girya kiye baġhair

āḳhir haiñ kaun log jo baḳhshe hī jā.eñge

tārīḳh ke harām se tauba kiye baġhair

vo sunnī bachcha kaun thā jis kī jafā ne ‘jaun’

shii.ā banā diyā hameñ shii.ā kiye baġhair

ab tum kabhī na aaoge ya.anī kabhī kabhī

ruḳhsat karo mujhe koī va.ada kiye baġhair
