Ya Mujhe Afsar-E-Shahana Banaya Hota

ya mujhe afsar-e-shahana banaya hota

ya mira taaj gadayana banaya hota

apna divana banaya mujhe hota tu ne

kyuun ḳhirad-mand banaya na banaya hota

ḳhaksari ke liye garche banaya tha mujhe

kaash ḳhak-e-dar-e-janana banaya hota

nashsha-e-ishq ka gar zarf diya tha mujh ko

umr ka tang na paimana banaya hota

dil-e-sad-chak banaya to bala se lekin

zulf-e-mushkin ka tire shana banaya hota

sufiyon ke jo na tha laeq-e-sohbat to mujhe

qabil-e-jalsa-e-rindana banaya hota

tha jalana hi agar duri-e-saqi se mujhe

to charagh-e-dar-e-mai-ḳhana banaya hota

shola-e-husn chaman men na dikhaya us ne

varna bulbul ko bhi parvana banaya hota

roz mamura-e-duniya men ḳharabi hai ‘zafar’

aisi basti ko to virana banaya hota
