Taj-Mahal

dost! main dekh chuka taj-mahal

…..vapas chal

marmarin marmarin phulon se ubalta hiira

chand ki aanch men dahke hue simin minar

zehn-e-shaer se ye karta hua chashmak paiham

ek malika ka ziya-posh o faza-tab mazar

ḳhud ba-ḳhud phir gae nazron men ba-andaz-e-saval

vo jo raston pe pade rahte hain lashon ki tarah

ḳhushk ho kar jo simat jaate hain be-ras aasab

dhuup men khopdiyan bajti hain tashon ki tarah

dost main dekh chuka taj-mahal

…..vapas chal

ye dhadakta hua gumbad men dil-e-shahjahan

ye dar-o-bam pe hansta hua malika ka shabab

jagmagata hai har ik tah se mazaq-e-tafriq

aur tariḳh udhati hai mohabbat ki naqab

chandni aur ye mahal alam-e-hairat ki qasam

duudh ki nahr men jis tarah ubaal aa jaae

aise sayyah ki nazron men khupe kya ye saman

jis ko farhad ki qismat ka ḳhayal aa jaae

dost main dekh chuka taj-mahal

…..vapas chal

ye damakti hui chaukhat ye tila-posh kalas

inhin jalvon ne diya qabr-parasti ko rivaj

maah o anjum bhi hue jaate hain majbur-e-sujud

vaah aram-gah-e-malika-e-maabud-mizaj

didani qasr nahin didani taqsim hai ye

ru-e-hasti pe dhuan qabr pe raqs-e-anvar

phail jaae isi rauza ka jo simta daman

kitne jan-dar janazon ko bhi mil jaae mazar

dost main dekh chuka taj-mahal

…..vapas chal
