Raat Gae Zindan Mein Jaane Kis Qaidi Ka Matam Tha

raat ga.e zindāñ meñ jaane kis qaidī kā mātam thā

us kī beḌiyāñ chup chup sī thiiñ aur ujālā kam kam thā

jaane kyuuñ guftār pe us kī vahm-o-gumāñ ke saa.e the

baat to us kī sīdhī sī thī lahja kuchh kuchh mub.ham thā

fasl-e-bahārāñ aa.ī bhī lekin chaak garebāñ ho na sake

jaane diloñ par kyā guzrī thī kaun sā us kā mausam thā

dasht-e-junūñ meñ dhuup kaḌī thī nauha-kunāñ the sannāTe

jaane terī yaad kā bādal saaya fagan kyuuñ paiham thā

soḳhta-sāmāñ dasht-e-talab se lauT ke aa.e to dekhā

saare gharoñ meñ un kā ghar hī itnā darham-barham thā

ḳhauf-o-rajā kā sahn-e-chaman meñ ek hī jaisā haal huā

zikr-e-sho.ala-o-shabnam bhī thā barq-e-fanā kā mātam thā

rāh-e-vafā meñ hirs-o-havā ke itne dilkash manzar the

us meñ ‘rāhī’ bhaTak gayā vo āḳhir ibn-e-ādam thā
