Zawal-E-Husn Ko Husn-E-Nigar Kya Jaane

zavāl-e-husn ko husn-e-nigār kyā jaane

ḳhizāñ qadam-ba-qadam hai bahār kyā jaane

likhā hai us ke muqaddar meñ iztirāb-e-davām

qarār kyā hai dil-e-be-qarār kyā jaane

nasīb rāhat-e-qurb-e-davām ho jis ko

vo lazzat-e-ḳhalish-e-intizār kiyā jaane

samajh rahe haiñ jise sab gunāhgār yahāñ

usī pe ho karam-e-kirdgār kyā jaane

kiye pe apne ho ḳhud munfa.il bashar āḳhir

yahī ho jabr yahī iḳhtiyār kyā jaane

taḌap rahā huuñ maiñ apne gunāh gin gin kar

usī kā naam ho roz-e-shumār kyā jaane

kahāñ ye shām-e-ġharībāñ kahāñ vo sub.h-e-vatan

vo farq-e-gardish-e-lail-o-nihār kyā jaane

jo paañv toḌ ke baiThe sar-e-rah-e-manzil

vo kab uTheñge koī shahsavār kyā jaane

ba-īñ kamāl-e-ḳhirad kyuuñ hai mā.il-e-ilhād

maqām-e-‘josh’ ko ‘mahrūm’-e-zār kyā jaane
