Wo Kahan Jalwa-E-Jaan-Bakhsh Butan-E-Dehli

vo kahan jalva-e-jan-bakhsh butan-e-dehli

kyuun ki jannat pe kiya jaane guman-e-dehli

in ka be-vajh nahin tuut ke hona barbad

DhunDe hai apne makinon ko makan-e-dehli

jis ke jhonke se saba tabla-e-attar bane

hai vo bad-e-sahar-e-itr-fishan-e-dehli

mehr zar khaak ko karta hai ye sach hai lekin

is se kuchh badh ke hain sahab-nazran-e-dehli

aina-saz sikandar hai tu jam jam-farosh

vusat-abad hai kis darja jahan-e-dehli

kar ke barbad use kis ko basaega falak

kya koi aur bhi hai shahar basan-e-dehli

is liye khuld men jaane ka har ik talib hai

ki kuchh ik duur se padta hai guman-e-dehli

vo sitam dekh chuke the ki rahe asuda

fitna-o-hashr men afat-zadgan-e-dehli

samjhe hain su-e-adab jannat-e-sani kahna

vo kuchh ashkhas jo hain martaba-dan-e-dehli

saili-e-panja-e-jallad-e-sitam se hai hai

nazr-e-be-dad hue muntakhaban-e-dehli

ya-khuda hazrat-e-ghalib ko salamat rakhna

ab isi naam se baaqi hai nishan-e-dehli

karbat-e-ghurbat-o-tanhai-o-shab-ha-e-daraz

aur ‘majruh’-e-dil-afgar bayan-e-dehli
