shoKHi-E-Garmi-E-Raftar Dikhate Na Chalo

shoḳhī-e-garmī-e-raftār dikhāte na chalo

fitna-e-hashr ko sīmāb batāte na chalo

ġhair bhī karne lage naqsh-e-qadam par sajde

naqsh-e-hub dil pe raqīboñ ke biThāte na chalo

chalte chalte to na ġhairoñ se hañso bahr-e-ḳhudā

ḳhaak meñ ashk namat mujh ko milāte na chalo

nigah-e-garm se gulshan meñ na dekho gul ko

ātish-e-rashk se bulbul ko jalāte na chalo

us ke kūche se na ghabrā ke chalo ai ‘tanvīr’

log pā jā.eñge āñkhoñ ko churāte na chalo
