Kya Farogh-E-Bazm Us Mah-Ru Ka Shab Sad-Rang Tha

kyā faroġh-e-bazm us mah-rū kā shab sad-rañg thā

sham.a nahiñ sharminda aur mah dekh ruḳh ko dañg thā

kyuuñ na rakhkhūñ daaġh dil par jaise laala dar-e-chaman

ḳhaal ġhair-e-fām us ruḳhsār par gul-rañg thā

sharmgīñ āñkhoñ se jis jānib ko paḌtī hai nazar

nāzukī shamshīr se bismil pe arsa tañg thā

qatl meñ āshiq ke shab ko kyā tujhe tāḳhīr hai

shor ġhul thā dhuum thī aur izhdihām āhañg thā

aah zaarī par kisī kī vo na kartā thā ḳhayāl

gosh-e-zad-āvāz us dam Dholak-o-mirdañg thā

ho gayā mahv-e-tamāshā ġhair kī mahfil meñ kyuuñ

ġhair tere dil mirā jyuuñ shīsha vaqf-e-sañg thā

‘āfrīdī’ ishq ke baa.is hayā jaatī rahī

kyā huā tere ta.iiñ da.avā jo nām-o-nañg thā
