KHirad Ko Gumshuda-E-Ku-Ba-Ku Samajhte Hain

ḳhirad ko gumshuda-e-kū-ba-kū samajhte haiñ

ham ahl-e-ishq tujhe rū-ba-rū samajhte haiñ

tire ḳhayāl kī ḳhushbū tire jamāl kā rañg

har ik ko takmila-e-rañg-o-bū samajhte haiñ

koī maqām koī marhala nazar meñ nahīñ

kahāñ hai qāfila-e-ārzū samajhte haiñ

butān-e-shahr ko ye e’tirāf ho ki na ho

zabān-e-ishq kī sab guftugū samajhte haiñ

hazār fitna dar āġhosh hai sukūñ terā

tujhe ham ai dil-e-āshufta-ḳhū samajhte haiñ

hazār manzil-e-nau yak farāġh-e-gumshudagī

ma.āl-e-hausla-e-justujū samajhte haiñ

faqīh-e-shahr se kyā pūchhiye ‘ravish’ ki janāb

zabān-e-shīsha-o-jām-o-subū samajhte haiñ
