Sakht-Jaani Ka Sahi Afsana Hai

sakht-jani ka sahi afsana hai

shahid-e-tegh-e-zaban dandana hai

maqtal-e-alam mira virana hai

dida-e-bismil charagh-e-khana hai

sham-e-raushan ariz-e-janana hai

khal-e-mushkin shama ka parvana hai

dil men aks-e-chehra-e-janana hai

aaine ka aaine men khana hai

kaun duniya men rahe divana hai

ek ujda sa musafir khana hai

teri mahfil kaaba hai ai shama-ru

taer-e-qibla-numa parvana hai

ankhen malta huun tumhari zulf se

panja-e-mizhgan ba-rang-e-shana hai

shama-ruon ki tajalli dekhiye

kirmak-e-shab-tab har parvana hai

ab-e-khanjar kya sharab-e-nab thi

raqs-e-bismil laghzish-e-mastana hai

khalq-e-alam ko pahunchta hai gazand

nafs-e-ammara sag-e-divana hai

bada-noshan-e-azal hain ser-chashm

jis taraf dekhen udhar mai-khana hai

abr aata hai to bikti hai sharab

naqd-e-rahmat hasil-e-mai-khana hai

ek tere naam ka karta huun zikr

mujh ko vird-e-subha-e-yak-dana hai

khate hain angur piite hain sharab

bas yahi maston ka ab-o-dana hai

kis taraf karte ho sajde zahido

kaaba ek ujda hua but-khana hai

chashm-e-musa ke hon parde kaan men

lan-tarani ka bayan afsana hai

thanDe thanDe sote hain zer-e-zamin

gor apne vaste tah-khana hai

kya bane sauda tira ai khud-farosh

mol jo ham ne kaha baiana hai

dekhte hain but miri betabiyan

sar bahakna sajda-e-shukrana hai

kya tira aina-e-ru saaf hai

naqd-e-jan leta yahan jurmana hai

garm naale sard hain ai ham-safir

zahiran kunj-e-qafas khas-khana hai

ki mai-e-muft aaj qaazi ne halal

fi-sabilillah har mai-khana hai

ikhtilat apne anasir men nahin

jo hai mere jism men begana hai

kya samundar ko dikhaen garmiyan

dozakh apna ek atiash-khana hai

ho gae misl-e-sulaiman ahl-e-ishq

ai pari kya himmat-e-mardana hai

dil hai aina to askandar huun main

husn ki daulat mira nazrana hai

arsh tak gardun se dekha ai sanam

saat ziine ka ye bala-khana hai

khel jaate hain hazaron jaan par

ishq-bazi bazi-e-tiflana hai

jaan deta huun magar aati nahin

maut ko bhi naz-e-maashuqana hai

paate hain naqd-e-zar-e-gul be-hisab

bagh-e-alam us ka daulat-khana hai

aaj hai mahv-e-shana vo shama-ru

har par-e-mahi par-e-parvana hai

dil kahan ye nafs-e-ammara kahan

aaina pesh sag-e-divana hai

iffat-e-mashshata kis se ho bayan

panja-e-maryam tumhara shana hai

mai-kade ke kaam dil se lijiye

khum ka khum paimana ka paimana hai

lucknow ka mujh ko sauda hai ‘munir’

dil husain-abad par divana hai
