Sukut-E-Shab Mein Dil-E-Dagh-Dagh Raushan Hai

sukūt-e-shab meñ dil-e-dāġh-dāġh raushan hai

ki zaḳhm zaḳhm nahīñ hai charāġh raushan hai

abhī junūn salāmat hai merā jān-e-ġhazal

kiran kiran hai tasavvur dimāġh raushan hai

ajab majāz-o-haqīqat hai ḳhitta-e-duniyā

jahāñ pe hans to maile haiñ zaaġh raushan hai

visāl-e-yār ke lamhe haiñ aarzī lekin

mashām-e-jāñ meñ magar sabz-bāġh raushan hai

abhī hai dasht meñ zinda firāq-e-lailā.ī

agarche ḳhatm fasāna surāġh raushan hai

ġhazāl āñkheñ haiñ aisī ki kyā kahūñ ‘zākir’

gulāb chehre pe do do ayāġh raushan hai
