Wahin Se Jab Ki Ishaara Ho Khud-Numai Ka

vahin se jab ki ishara ho khud-numai ka

ajab ki banda na daava kare khudai ka

mile jo rutba tire dar ki jabah-sai ka

to ek silsila ho shahi-o-gadai ka

nahin hai faiz men khissat va-lek paida hai

tafavut aina-o-sang men safai ka

yahan jo ishq hai betab-e-jalva-e-didar

vahan bhi husn muharrik hai khud-numai ka

buton ke samne but-gar ghise jabin-e-niyaz

main shefta huun tiri shan-e-kibriyai ka

na kar kisi ki burai na ban bhale se bura

bhala bhala hai bura kaam hai burai ka

banaen bigdi hui ko to ek baat bhi hai

bigadna nahin mushkil bani-banai ka

utha hijab to bas din-o-dil diye hi bani

janab-e-shaikh ko daava tha parsai ka

tumhare dil se kudurat mitae to janen

khula hai shahr men ik mahkama safai ka

havas hai gar sar-o-saman ke jama karne ki

talash kar sar-o-saman be-navai ka

sivae ishq nahin koi rahbar-e-chalak

vahan khirad ko nahin hausla rasai ka

usi ka vasf hai maqsud sher-khvani se

usi ka zikr hai mansha ghazal-sarai ka

nahin hai ab ke zamane ki ye ravish zinhar

main yadgar huun ‘khaqani’-o-‘sanai’ ka
