Teri Jafa Hui Ki Jahan Ka Ghazab Hua

terī jafā huī ki jahāñ kā ġhazab huā

ham par to jo sitam bhī huā be-sabab huā

is sā.at-e-sa.īd ko kyā naam dījiye

insāñ asīr-e-vaqt ke zindāñ meñ jab huā

sho.ala-sifat haiñ raqs meñ apne chaman ke phuul

is ālam-e-bahār meñ ye kyā ġhazab huā

shāyad yahī mazāq-e-talab kī hai intihā

duniyā-e-rañg-o-bū meñ bhī dil be-talab huā

munsif ko maslahat kī zabāñ raas aa ga.ī

go faisla huā magar insāf kab huā

us ko nasīb ho na sakā rishta-e-ḳhulūs

jo qā.il-e-qaziya-e-hasab-o-nasab huā

jaarī hai ek tīrgī-o-raushnī kī jañg

jab se shu.ūr-e-silsila-e-roz-o-shab huā

had-e-nigāh tak kahīñ sho.ale kahīñ dhuāñ

ye ḳhāk-o-ḳhūñ kā khel gulistāñ meñ kab huā

is hādse pe aap kā jo tabsira bhī ho

maiñ āshnā-e-mahfil-e-aish-o-tarab huā

kaise ho tum ko lazzat-e-āzād jāñ-nasīb

dushvār marhaloñ se guzarnā hī kab huā

kitne aziim log tah-e-ḳhāk ho ga.e

tū bhī huā jo ‘lais’ to phir kyā ajab huā
