Tashqand Ki Sham

manao jashn-e-mohabbat ki khuun ki bu na rahi

baras ke khul gae barud ke siyah badal

bujhi bujhi si hai jangon ki akhiri bijli

mahak rahi hai gulabon se tashqand ki shaam

jagao gesu-e-janan ki ambarin raten

jalao saad-e-simin ki sham-e-kafuri

tavil boson ke gul-rang jaam chhalkao

ye surkh jaam hai khuban-e-tashqand ke naam

ye sabz jaam hai lahore ke hasinon ka

safed jaam hai dilli ke dilbaron ke liye

ghula hai jis men mohabbat ke aftab ka rang

khuli hui hai ufuq par shafaq tabassum ki

nasim-e-shauq chali mehrban takallum ki

labon ki shoala-fishani hai shabnam-afshani

isi men subh-e-tamanna naha ke nikhregi

kisi ki zulf na ab sham-e-gham men bikhregi

javan khauf ki vaadi se ab na guzrenge

jiyale maut ke sahil pe ab na utrenge

bhari na jaegi ab khak-o-khun se maang kabhi

milegi maan ko na marg-e-pisar ki khush-khabari

koi na dega yatimon ko ab mubarakbad

khilenge phuul bahut sarhad-e-tamanna par

khabar na hogi ye nargis hai kis ki aankhon ki

ye gul hai kis ki jabin kis ka lab hai ye laala

ye shakh kis ke javan bazuon ki angdai

bas itna hoga ye dharti hai shahsavaron ki

jahan-e-husn ke gumnam tajdaron ki

ye sarzamin hai mohabbat ke khvastgaron ki

jo gul pe marte the shabnam se pyaar karte the

khuda kare ki ye shabnam yuun hi barasti rahe

zamin hamesha lahu ke liye tarasti rahe
