Shab-E-Firaq Na kaTe kaTe Hai Kya Kije

shab-e-firāq na kaaTe kaTe hai kyā kiije

na sub.h ho.e hai na pau phaTe hai kyā kiije

safā thā aks-e-ruḳh us ke se dil kā ā.īna

ab us pe zañg-e-kudūrat aTe hai kyā kiije

rahīm-o-rām kī sumran hai shaiḳh-o-hindū ko

dil us ke naam kī raTnā raTe hai kyā kiije

basān har mizha par pāra-e-dil-majrūh

har ek pal na shumurda baTe hai kyā kiije

piye thā raat to kal ġhair paas yaar sharāb

aur aaj qasmeñ hī khā khā naTe hai kyā kiije

ye juuñ juuñ va.ade ke din raat paḌte jaate haiñ

ghaḌī ghaḌī meñ mirā jī kaTe hai kyā kiije

raqīb jam ke ye baiThā ki ham uThe nā-chār

ye patthar ab na haTā.e haTe hai kyā kiije

jigar ke TukḌoñ se jab tak ki god bhar le aa.e

ye tifl-e-ashk to ro-ro haTe hai kyā kiije

ye duḳht-e-raz koī aise luTī mile hai ‘muhib’

dil us kī taak meñ apnā luTe hai kyā kiije
