Rah-E-Wafa Mein Saya-E-Diwar-O-Dar Bhi Hai

rāh-e-vafā meñ sāya-e-dīvār-o-dar bhī hai

lekin usī pe jaan se jaane kā Dar bhī hai

vaqfa hai zindagī to faqat chand roz kā

phir shahr-e-rañg-o-bū kī taraf ik safar bhī hai

raushan rakho charāġh lahū se tamām shab

har raat ke nasīb meñ āḳhir sahar bhī hai

kirdār dekhne kī rivāyat nahīñ rahī

ab aadmī ye dekhtā hai māl-o-zar bhī hai

sun to rahe ho baat yuuñ vaa.iz kī ġhaur se

lekin yaqīn us kī kisī baat par bhī hai

dāmān-e-gul-ruḳhāñ kī tamannā bhī dosto

kitnā hasīn ḳhvāb hai tum ko ḳhabar bhī hai

merā bayān-e-shauq bhalā rā.egāñ ho kyuuñ

tahrīr meñ nihāñ mirā ḳhūn-e-jigar bhī hai

yuuñ to koī aziiz haiñ aur dost bhī magar

‘shāyān’ ye batāo koī mo’atabar bhī hai
