hamesha KHun-e-shahidan ke rang se aabaad


hamesha ḳhūn-e-shahīdāñ ke rañg se ābād
ye karbalā-e-muallā ye basra o baġhdād

jahāñ ko phir se naved-e-bahār dete haiñ
abū-ġharīb kī jailoñ ke kuchh sitam-ījād

hayāt-o-marg ke sab marhale tamām hue
kafan lapeT ke nikle haiñ harche-bād-abād

purānī bastiyāñ sab ḳhāk-o-ḳhūñ meñ ġhaltāñ haiñ
''kareñge ahl-e-nazar taaza bastiyāñ ābād''

laboñ pe ḳhair ke na.are haiñ aur kuchh bhī nahīñ
diloñ meñ jaag rahā hai zamīr-e-ibn-e-ziyād

iraq ḳhūn-e-shahīdāñ se surḳh-rū hogā
bamoñ ke Dher haiñ launcher haiñ tesha-e-farhād

pahuñch ga.e haiñ ham aise dayār meñ ki 'vahīd'
jahāñ gunāh to lāzim hai nekiyāñ barbād

hamesha KHun-e-shahidan ke rang se aabaad
ye karbala-e-mualla ye basra o baghdad

jahan ko phir se nawed-e-bahaar dete hain
abu-gharib ki jailon ke kuchh sitam-ijad

hayat-o-marg ke sab marhale tamam hue
kafan lapeT ke nikle hain harche-baad-abaad

purani bastiyan sab KHak-o-KHun mein ghaltan hain
karenge ahl-e-nazar taza bastiyan aabaad

labon pe KHair ke nare hain aur kuchh bhi nahin
dilon mein jag raha hai zamir-e-ibn-e-ziyaad

iraq KHun-e-shahidan se surKH-ru hoga
bamon ke Dher hain launcher hain tesha-e-farhad

pahunch gae hain hum aise dayar mein ki 'wahid'
jahan gunah to lazim hai nekiyan barbaad
