Ruh Mein Tazgi Nahin Qalb Mein Raushni Nahin

ruuh meñ tāzgī nahīñ qalb meñ raushnī nahīñ

terī qasam tire baġhair zindagī zindagī nahīñ

tazkira-e-ḳhudā nahīñ silsila-e-ḳhudī nahīñ

ab maiñ vahāñ huuñ jis jagah mere sivā koī nahīñ

sajda-e-dost ke liye chāhiye jazb-e-be-ḳhudī

bandagī aur ba-qaid-e-hosh kufr hai bandagī nahīñ

sust qadam the mehr-o-māh rah ga.e misl-e-gard-e-rāh

manzil-e-ishq meñ mirā ham-safar ab koī nahīñ

zauq-e-talab hai hāsil-e-husn-e-tamām-e-kā.enāt

tālib-e-dīd bhī to ho javoñ kī kuchh kamī nahīñ

naġhma-e-dil pe jhūmnā pā-e-sanam ko chūmnā

zāhid-e-ḳhushk-tar abhī vāqif-e-bandagī nahīñ

‘ārzū’ dil ke saath saath hosh-o-ḳhirad bhī phūñk de

ishq meñ ārzū-e-ishq shān-e-qalandarī nahīñ
