jab sar-e-baam wo KHurshid-jamal aata hai


jab sar-e-bām vo ḳhurshīd-jamāl aatā hai
zarre zarre pe qayāmat kā jalāl aatā hai

phuul muskāte haiñ lahrātī hai Tahnī Tahnī
fasl-e-gul aate hī har shai pe jamāl aatā hai

vo janam-din pe bulāte haiñ hamesha mujh ko
har nayā saal ba-andāz-e-visāl aatā hai

kyuuñ tire hoñT mujhe dete haiñ manfī meñ javāb
mere hoñToñ pe ye rah rah ke savāl aatā hai

jab savālī koī aa jaatā hai dar par to mujhe
us kī baḳhshī huī ne.amat kā ḳhayāl aatā hai

un ke khilte hue joban ko vo murjhā na sakā
aane ko daur-e-ḳhizāñ sāl-ba-sāl aatā hai

mujhe jachtī hī nahīñ aur kisī kī sūrat
jab ḳhayāl aatā hai terā hī ḳhayāl aatā hai

taare ginvātī haiñ phir hijr kī kaalī rāteñ
jab mujhe yaad koī zohra-jamāl aatā hai

yuuñ ruḳh-e-zard chamak uThtā hai aane pe tire
jaise holī meñ koī mal ke gulāl aatā hai

apne hāthoñ ke pale log jo ho jaa.eñ ḳhilāf
un ke aḳhlāq pe ai 'charḳh' malāl aatā hai

jab sar-e-baam wo KHurshid-jamal aata hai
zarre zarre pe qayamat ka jalal aata hai

phul muskate hain lahraati hai Tahni Tahni
fasl-e-gul aate hi har shai pe jamal aata hai

wo janam-din pe bulate hain hamesha mujh ko
har naya sal ba-andaz-e-visal aata hai

kyun tere honT mujhe dete hain manfi mein jawab
mere honTon pe ye rah rah ke sawal aata hai

jab sawali koi aa jata hai dar par to mujhe
us ki baKHshi hui neamat ka KHayal aata hai

un ke khilte hue joban ko wo murjha na saka
aane ko daur-e-KHizan sal-ba-sal aata hai

mujhe jachti hi nahin aur kisi ki surat
jab KHayal aata hai tera hi KHayal aata hai

tare ginwati hain phir hijr ki kali raaten
jab mujhe yaad koi zohra-jamal aata hai

yun ruKH-e-zard chamak uThta hai aane pe tere
jaise holi mein koi mal ke gulal aata hai

apne hathon ke pale log jo ho jaen KHilaf
un ke aKHlaq pe ai 'charKH' malal aata hai
