kaTa Na Koh-E-Alam Humse Kohkan Ki Tarah

kaTā na koh-e-alam ham se kohkan kī tarah

badal sakā na zamāna tire chalan kī tarah

hazār baar kiyā ḳhūn-e-ārzū ham ne

jabīn-e-dahr pe phir bhī rahe shikan kī tarah

savād-e-shab kī ye tanhā.iyāñ bhī Dastī haiñ

ye chāñdnī bhī nazar aatī hai kafan kī tarah

tamām shahar hai begāna log nā-mānūs

vatan meñ apne haiñ ham ek be-vatan kī tarah

ḳhayāl-e-dost na hasrat na aarzū na ummīd

ye dil hai ab kisī ujḌe hue chaman kī tarah

sukūn-e-qalb to kiyā hai qarār-e-jāñ bhī luTā

tumhārī yaad bhī aa.ī to rāhzan kī tarah

ajab nahīñ ki sar-e-shahr-e-ārzū ‘nādir’

hamārā dil bhī jale sham-e-anjuman kī tarah
