Ye Iqamat Hamein Paigham-E-Safar Deti Hai

ye iqāmat hameñ paiġhām-e-safar detī hai

zindagī maut ke aane kī ḳhabar detī hai

zāl-e-duniyā hai ajab tarah kī allāma-e-dahr

mard-e-dīñ-dār ko bhī dahriya kar detī hai

baḌhtī jaatī hai jo mashq-e-sitam us zālim kī

kuchh mohabbat mirī islāh magar detī hai

fā.eda de tire bīmār ko kyā ḳhaak davā

ab to iksīr bhī diije to zarar detī hai

sham.a ghabrā na shab-e-ġham se ki koī dam meñ

tujh ko kāfūr-e-safedi-e-sahar detī hai

ġhuncha hañstā hai tire aage jo gustāḳhī se

chaTḳhanā muñh pe vahīñ bād-e-sahar detī hai

sham.a bhī kam nahīñ kuchh ishq meñ parvāne se

jaan detā hai agar vo to ye sar detī hai

dam-ba-dam zaḳhm pe ik zaḳhm hai dam lene kī

mujh ko fursat nahīñ vo teġh-e-nazar detī hai

kahte sunte nahīñ kuchh ham to shab-e-hijr meñ par

nāla-e-dil kā javāb āh-e-jigar detī hai

tīra-baḳhtī mirī kartī hai pareshāñ mujh ko

tohmat is zulf-e-siyah-fām pe dhar detī hai

naḳhl-e-mizhgāñ se hai kyā jāniye kyā chashm-e-samar

chashm paanī kī jagah ḳhūn-e-jigar detī hai

detī sharbat hai kise zahr bharī aañkh tirī

ain ehsān hai vo zahr bhī gar detī hai

koī ġhammāz nahīñ merī taraf se ai ‘zauq’

kaan us ke mirī fariyād hī bhar detī hai
