Zindagi Jab Se Shanasa-E-Muhaallat Hui

zindagī jab se shanāsā-e-muhāllāt huī

sach to ye hai ki ḳhud apne se mulāqāt huī

parda-e-ġham jise samjhā thā vahī ḳhāmoshī

kal tirī bazm meñ mauzū-e-hakāyāt huī

ham ko ai qāfila-e-shauq ye kyā yaad rahe

ki huī sub.h kahāñ aur kahāñ raat huī

tirī duz-dīda-nigāhī kā ḳhayāl aate hī

dil meñ ik raushni-e-kashf-e-hijābāt huī

is qadar sahl kahāñ marhala-e-soz-o-gudāz

raat bhar sham.a kā jalnā bhī koī baat huī

pās-e-ādāb-e-mohabbat ki ba-īñ raaz o niyāz

muddatoñ bād-e-sabā se na koī baat huī

jis kī mahfil ko ‘ravish’ jannat-e-fardā kahiye

kal usī ḳhusrav-e-ḳhūbāñ se mulāqāt huī
