Khuda-Parast Hue Hum Na But-Parast Hue

khuda-parast hue ham na but-parast hue

kisi taraf na jhuka sar kuchh aise mast hue

jinhen ghurur bahut tha namaz roze par

gae jo qabr men saare vuzu shikast hue

hamare dil men jo vahshat ne aag bhadkai

sharar bhi rah gae pichhe ye garm jast hue

jo apne vaade vafa vo kare karam us ka

ki ham se to na vafa vada-e-alast hue

ghurur kar ke nigahon se gir gae maghrur

buland jitne hue utne aur past hue

raha khumar ki sadme se chuur shisha-e-dil

magar na sail-e-mai tere mai-parast hue

lagae khaar lagin tattiyan bhi mehndi ki

ruke na bu-e-chaman laakh band-o-bast hue

khizan men bhi na chhuta daman-e-chaman ham se

hue jo suukh ke kanta to khar-bast hue

bana hai panja-e-qassab dast-e-zulm un ka

sab ungliyan huiin chhuriyan ye tez dast hue

habab se bhi habibon ke dil men nazuk-tar

nazar ke bhi jo lage thes ye shikast hue

tadap dikha na ise ‘bahr’ mahi-e-dil ki

ghazab hua jo vo tar-e-nigah shast hue
