Shab-E-Wada Kah Gai Hai Shab-E-Gham Daraaz Rakhna

shab-e-va.ada kah ga.ī hai shab-e-ġham darāz rakhnā

ise maiñ bhī raaz rakkhūñ ise tum bhī raaz rakhnā

ye hai ḳhaar ḳhaar vaadī yūñhī zaḳhm zaḳhm chalnā

ye hai pattharoñ kī bastī yūñhī dil-e-gudāz rakhnā

hama-tan junūñ huuñ phir bhī rahe kuchh to parda-dārī

ki burā nahīñ ḳhirad se koī sāz-bāz rakhnā

mire nāḳhun-e-vafā par koī qarz rah na jaa.e

tire dil meñ jo girah hai use nīm-bāz rakhnā

vahī lai jo an-sunī bhī vahī ‘shāz’ naġhmagī bhī

ye hisāb-e-ḳhāmushī bhī mire nai-navāz rakhnā
