aaKHir wo iztirab ke din bhi guzar gae


āḳhir vo iztirāb ke din bhī guzar ga.e
jab dil-e-harīf-e-ātish-e-qahr-o-itāb thā

jaañ dostoñ kī chāragarī se laboñ pe thī
sar dushmanoñ kī sañg-zanī se azaab thā

dāman-e-sāgān kū-e-mohabbat se taar taar
chehra ḳharāsh-e-dast-e-junūñ se ḳharāb thā

vaañ e'timād-e-mashq-e-siyāsat kī had na thī
yaañ e'tibār-e-nāla-e-dil be-hisāb thā

har baat sūfiyoñ kī tarah pech-o-ḳham liye
har lafz shā.iroñ kī tarah intiḳhāb thā

har jalva ek daftar āshob-e-rozgār
har ġhamza ilm-e-fitna-garī kī kitāb thā

ḳhvābīda har nazar meñ banā.e fasād-e-ḳhalq
poshīda har ravish meñ nayā inqalāb thā

aaj is ġhazal meñ ham pe qayāmat guzar ga.ī
kyā garmī-e-ḳhayāl thī kyā iltihāb thā

aaKHir wo iztirab ke din bhi guzar gae
jab dil-e-harif-e-atish-e-qahr-o-itab tha

jaan doston ki chaaragari se labon pe thi
sar dushmanon ki sang-zani se azab tha

daman-e-sagan ku-e-mohabbat se tar tar
chehra KHarash-e-dast-e-junun se KHarab tha

wan e'timad-e-mashq-e-siyasat ki had na thi
yan e'tibar-e-nala-e-dil be-hisab tha

har baat sufiyon ki tarah pech-o-KHam liye
har lafz shairon ki tarah intiKHab tha

har jalwa ek daftar aashob-e-rozgar
har ghamza ilm-e-fitna-gari ki kitab tha

KHwabida har nazar mein banae fasad-e-KHalq
poshida har rawish mein naya inqalab tha

aaj is ghazal mein hum pe qayamat guzar gai
kya garmi-e-KHayal thi kya iltihab tha
