Na Qahqaha Na Tabassum Na Ashk Paiham Hai

na qahqaha na tabassum na ashk paiham hai

jahāñ pe ham haiñ vahāñ kuchh ajiib aalam hai

jo pahle aaj se thā aaj bhī vahī ġham hai

ye daur-e-jām nahīñ hai fareb-e-paiham hai

burā na maano to ik baat tum se arz karūñ

tumhārā lutf ba-andāza-e-sitam kam hai

ye sub.h-o-shām kī mastī ye nashsha-e-shab-o-roz

tire baġhair koī kaif ho mujhe sam hai

sar-e-niyāz kabhī us ke sāmne na jhukā

isī qusūr pe ham se zamāna barham hai

hai baat baat pe hajv-e-subū-o-sāġhar-o-mai

janāb-e-hazrat-e-vā.is se naak meñ dam hai

nigāh-e-nāz ko taklīf-e-iltifāt na do

ki ab to zaḳhm-e-jigar be-niyāz-e-marham hai

ḳhatā zarūr koī us se bhī huī hogī

ki āḳhir ‘āsī’-e-ḳhasta bhī ibn-e-ādam hai
