naqsh-e-kuhan ho ki nau manzil-e-aḳhir fana

hai magar is naqsh men rang-e-sabat-e-davam

jis ko kiya ho kisi mard-e-ḳhuda ne tamam

mard-e-ḳhuda ka amal ishq se sahab farogh

ishq hai asl-e-hayat maut hai us par haram

tund o subuk-sair hai garche zamane ki rau

ishq ḳhud ik sail hai sail ko leta hai thaam

ḳhun-e-jigar se sada soz o surur o surud

teri faza dil-faroz meri nava sina-soz

tujh se dilon ka huzur mujh se dilon ki kushud

arsh-e-moalla se kam sina-e-adam nahin

garche kaf-e-ḳhak ki had hai sip.har-e-kabud

paikar-e-nuri ko hai sajda mayassar to kya

us ko mayassar nahin soz-o-gudaz-e-sajud

kafir-e-hindi huun main dekh mira zauq o shauq

dil men salat o durud lab pe salat o durud

shauq miri lai men hai shauq miri nai men hai

naghma-e-allah-hu mere rag-o-pai men hai

shaam ke sahra men ho jaise hujum-e-nuḳhil

tere dar-o-bam par vadi-e-aiman ka nuur

tera minar-e-buland jalva-gah-e-jibrail

mit nahin sakta kabhi mard-e-musalman ki hai

us ki azanon se faash sirr-e-kalim-o-ḳhalil

us ki zamin be-hudud us ka ufuq be-saghur

us ke samundar ki mauj dajla o danyub o niil

us ke zamane ajiib us ke fasane gharib

ahd-e-kuhan ko diya us ne payam-e-rahil

saqi-e-rabab-e-zauq faras-e-maidan-e-shauq

baada hai us ka rahiq tegh hai us ki asiil

mard-e-sipahi hai vo us ki zirah la-ilah

saya-e-shamshir men us ki panah la-ilah

tujh se hua ashkar banda-e-momin ka raaz

us ke dinon ki tapish us ki shabon ka gudaz

us ka maqam-e-buland us ka ḳhayal-e-azim

us ka surur us ka shauq us ka niyaz us ka naaz

haath hai allah ka banda-e-momin ka haath

ghalib o kar-afrin kar-kusha karsaz

ḳhaki o nuri-nihad banda-e-maula-sifat

ishq-e-bala-ḳhez ka qafla-e-saḳht-jan

dekh chuka almani shorish-e-islah-e-din

jis ne na chhode kahin naqsh-e-kuhan ke nishan

harf-e-ghalat ban gai ismat-e-pir-e-kunisht

aur hui fikr ki kashti-e-nazuk ravan

chashm-e-faransis bhi dekh chuki inqalab

jis se digar-gun hua maghrabiyon ka jahan

millat-e-rumi-nizhad kohna-parasti se piir

lazzat-e-tajdida se vo bhi hui phir javan

ruh-e-musalman men hai aaj vahi iztirab

raz-e-ḳhudai hai ye kah nahin sakti zaban

narm dam-e-guftugu garm dam-e-justuju

razm ho ya bazm ho pak-dil o pak-baz

nuqta-e-parkar-e-haq mard-e-ḳhuda ka yaqin

aur ye aalam tamam vahm o tilism o majaz

aql ki manzil hai vo ishq ka hasil hai vo

halqa-e-afaq men garmi-e-mahfil hai vo

kaba-e-arbab-e-fan satvat-e-din-e-mubin

tujh se haram martabat undulusiyon ki zamin

hai tah-e-gardun agar husn men teri nazir

qalb-e-musalman men hai aur nahin hai kahin

aah vo mardan-e-haq vo arabi shahsavar

hamil-e-ḳhalq-e-azim sahab-e-sidq-o-yaqin

jin ki hukumat se hai faash ye ramz-e-gharib

saltanat-e-ahl-e-dil faqr hai shahi nahin

jin ki nigahon ne ki tarbiyat-e-sharq-o-gharb

zulmat-e-europe men thi jin ki ḳhirad-rah-bin

jin ke lahu ke tufail aaj bhi hain undulusi

ḳhush-dil o garam-iḳhtilat saada o raushan-jabin

dekhiye is bahr ki tah se uchhalta hai kya

gumbad-e-nilofari rang badalta hai kya

vadi-e-koh-sar men gharq-e-shafaq hai sahab

lal-e-badaḳhshan ke Dher chhod gaya aftab

saada o pur-soz hai duḳhtar-e-dahqan ka giit

kashti-e-dil ke liye sail hai ahd-e-shabab

ab-e-ravan-e-kabir tere kinare koi

dekh raha hai kisi aur zamane ka ḳhvab

alam-e-nau hai abhi parda-e-taqdir men

meri nigahon men hai us ki sahar be-hijab

parda utha duun agar chehra-e-afkar se

la na sakega farang meri navaon ki taab

jis men na ho inqalab maut hai vo zindagi

ruh-e-umam ki hayat kashmakash-e-inqilab

surat-e-shamshir hai dast-e-qaza men vo qaum

karti hai jo har zaman apne amal ka hisab

naqsh hain sab na-tamam ḳhun-e-jigar ke baghair

naghma hai sauda-e-ḳham ḳhun-e-jigar ke baghair
