Tasalsul

kab se sunsan kharabon men pada tha ye jahan

kab se khvabida the is vadi-e-khara ke sanam

kis ko maalum ye sadiyon ke pur-asrar bharam

kaun jaane ki ye patthar bhi kabhi the insan

sirf lab-dokht parbat hain jahan nauha-kunan

na dar-o-bam na divar o daricha koi

koi dahliz-e-shikasta na harim-e-viran

shahr ke shahr hain patal ke daman men nihan

kaun pahchanta zulmat hain siyahi ke nishan

jo nazar DhunDne utthi vo nazar bhi khoi

chashm-e-mahtab bhi shabnam ki jagah khuun roi

ilm ne aaj kurede hain vo zulmat ke Dher

vaqt ne jis pe bithae the fana ke pahre

jaag uthe sur-e-sarafil se gunge bahre

ta-abad jin ke muqaddar men thi duniya andher

ye magar azmat-e-insan hai ki taqdir ke pher?

ye imarat, ye minar, ye gulzar, ye khet

toda-e-khak se hasti ne liya taaza janm

ji uthe vadi-e-khamosh ke be-jan sanam

phir koi chirega zarre ka jigar qatra-e-yam

dafn kar dega jo khaliq ko bhi makhluq samet

aur ye abadiyan ban jaengi phir ret hi ret
