qamat-e-yar ko hum yaad kiya karte hain


qāmat-e-yār ko ham yaad kiyā karte haiñ
sarv ko sadqe meñ āzād kiyā karte haiñ

zulf-e-shab-rañg ko ham yaad kiyā karte haiñ
shab-e-tārīk meñ fariyād kiyā karte haiñ

nigah-e-yār ko ham yaad kiyā karte haiñ
dekh kar barq ko fariyād kiyā karte haiñ

kūcha-e-yār ko ham yaad kiyā karte haiñ
jā ke gulzār meñ fariyād kiyā karte haiñ

ghar jo be-yār hai vīrāñ to tasavvur meñ mudām
ḳhāna-e-dil ko ham ābād kiyā karte haiñ

rashk se naam nahīñ lete ki sun le na koī
dil hī dil meñ use ham yaad kiyā karte haiñ

guzre haiñ kūcha-e-kākul se sabā ke jhoñke
nik.hat-e-gul ko jo barbād kiyā karte haiñ

hote haiñ jaate hī maktab meñ parī-rū ḳhūñ-rez
kyā ye jallādoñ ko ustād kiyā karte haiñ

phūñk deñ nāla-e-sozāñ se agar chāheñ qafas
ham faqat ḳhātir-e-sayyād kiyā karte haiñ

hotī hai āfat-e-ḳhat qahr-e-ḳhudā se nāzil
ye sanam ham pe jo bedād kiyā karte haiñ

malak-ul-maut agar kahiye unheñ to hai bajā
qatl be-teġh parī-zād kiyā karte haiñ

tū vo sayyād hai jo vaar ke tujh par lākhoñ
tā.er-e-rūh ko āzād kiyā karte haiñ

intiqām is kā kahīñ le na falak Dartā huuñ
jhūTe va.adoñ se jo vo shaad kiyā karte haiñ

terā dīvān hai kyā sāmne un ke 'nāsiḳh'
jo ki qur.ān pe īrād kiyā karte haiñ

qamat-e-yar ko hum yaad kiya karte hain
sarw ko sadqe mein aazad kiya karte hain

zulf-e-shab-rang ko hum yaad kiya karte hain
shab-e-tarik mein fariyaad kiya karte hain

nigah-e-yar ko hum yaad kiya karte hain
dekh kar barq ko fariyaad kiya karte hain

kucha-e-yar ko hum yaad kiya karte hain
ja ke gulzar mein fariyaad kiya karte hain

ghar jo be-yar hai viran to tasawwur mein mudam
KHana-e-dil ko hum aabaad kiya karte hain

rashk se nam nahin lete ki sun le na koi
dil hi dil mein use hum yaad kiya karte hain

guzre hain kucha-e-kakul se saba ke jhonke
nikhat-e-gul ko jo barbaad kiya karte hain

hote hain jate hi maktab mein pari-ru KHun-rez
kya ye jalladon ko ustad kiya karte hain

phunk den nala-e-sozan se agar chahen qafas
hum faqat KHatir-e-sayyaad kiya karte hain

hoti hai aafat-e-KHat qahr-e-KHuda se nazil
ye sanam hum pe jo bedad kiya karte hain

malak-ul-maut agar kahiye unhen to hai baja
qatl be-tegh pari-zad kiya karte hain

tu wo sayyaad hai jo war ke tujh par lakhon
taer-e-ruh ko aazad kiya karte hain

intiqam is ka kahin le na falak Darta hun
jhuTe wadon se jo wo shad kiya karte hain

tera diwan hai kya samne un ke 'nasiKH'
jo ki quran pe irad kiya karte hain
