Humne to ujaD Aur Basti Dekhi

ham ne to ujaaḌ aur bastī dekhī

duniyā kī sabhī buland aur pastī dekhī

sūrat pe ḳhayāl apnī aayā jis dam

yak lahza habāb-vār pastī dekhī

kitnoñ ke ma.āsh kī durustī dekhī

kitnoñ kī ba-ḳhāna fāqa-mastī dekhī

duniyā hai basān qahba ḳhush-dil ġhamgīñ

rotī hai kabhī kabhī to hañstī dekhī

jis dast kī maiñ darāz-dastī dekhī

is dast kī āḳhirash shikastī dekhī

jis ne bastam kiyā makāñ ko ta.amīr

dīvār phir us makāñ kī khisaktī dekhī

bā-vasf ayaañ hai lek ba.azī ḳhilqat

is shoḳh kī diid ko tarastī dekhī

ye turfa hai mājrā ki ka.aba-e-dil meñ

‘āfrīdī’ kī ham ne but-parastī dekhī
