Raat Ke Pichhle Pahar Ek sansanahaT Si Hui

raat ke pichhle pahar ik sansanāhaT sī huī

aur phir ek aur phir ek aur aahaT sī huī

daf.atan zanjīr khankī yak-ba-yak paT khul ga.e

sham.a kī lau meñ achānak thartharāhaT sī huī

ḳhasta-e-dīvār-o-dar yak-bārgī hilne lage

taaq thī vīrān lekin jagmagāhaT sī huī

ek paikar sā dhueñ ke biich lahrāne lagā

nīm-vā hoñToñ pe raqsāñ muskurāhaT sī huī

phir bhayānak raat phir pur-haul sannāTā ‘zubair’

phir khañDar meñ shahparoñ kī phaḌphaḌāhaT sī huī
