KHatm Hoga Ab Safar Pesh-E-Nazar Hai Ru-E-Dost

ḳhatm hogā ab safar pesh-e-nazar hai rū-e-dost

aa rahī hai aaj kī manzil se mujh ko bū-e-dost

aage aage hasrateñ ….aur pīchhe pīchhe maiñ chalā

is tarah ghar se nikal kar jā rahā huuñ sū-e-dost

pahle to dil ne jigar kī jaan nā-qadrī se lī

DhūñDhtā phirtā hai aalam bhar meñ ab pahlū-e-dost

vāh-rī qismat ki gardūñ par sahar hone lagī

go paḌe the mere baazū par abhī gesū-e-dost

ḳhud-baḳhud merī rag-e-gardan phaḌak uThtī hai aaj

kar rahā hai koī zikr-e-quvvat-e-bāzū-e-dost

lafz jo dil kī talab meñ thā vo bilkul sehr thā

bātoñ hī bātoñ meñ mujh par chal gayā jādū-e-dost

koī dīvāna chalā hai hashr meñ is vaz.a se

chaak tā-dāman garebāñ muñh pe ḳhāk-e-kū-e-dost

dil se mujh ko saaf saaf āḳhir ye kah denā paḌā

ab vahī saḳhtī bhī jhele jo bigāḌe ḳhū-e-dost

ho agar zinda tum ai ‘ālim’ to ab hoshyār ho

kab talak soyā karoge thak gayā zānū-e-dost
