har samt zindagi ka tamasha bhi KHub hai


har samt zindagī kā tamāshā bhī ḳhuub hai
duniyā bhī ḳhuub raunaq-e-duniyā bhī ḳhuub hai

jis shahr meñ kisī ko kisī kī ḳhabar nahīñ
us shahar-e-lā-javāb meñ jiinā bhī ḳhuub hai

mai-ḳhāna-e-hayāt kā ahvāl kyā likhūñ
saaqī bhī ḳhuub sāġhar-e-sahbā bhī ḳhuub hai

pī kar sharāb gum maiñ rahūñ apne hosh meñ
ai zindagī ye terā taqāzā bhī ḳhuub hai

dekhā hai maiñ ne us ke ziyāñ meñ bhī fā.eda
bāzār-e-ārzū kā ḳhasārā bhī ḳhuub hai

hotī hai avvalīñ hī mulāqāt-e-āḳhirī
insān kā ye maut se rishta bhī ḳhuub hai

muddat se chal rahā huuñ magar tai na kar sakā
'shāhid' ye rāh-e-rāst-e-tamannā bhī ḳhuub hai

har samt zindagi ka tamasha bhi KHub hai
duniya bhi KHub raunaq-e-duniya bhi KHub hai

jis shahr mein kisi ko kisi ki KHabar nahin
us shahar-e-la-jawab mein jina bhi KHub hai

mai-KHana-e-hayat ka ahwal kya likhun
saqi bhi KHub saghar-e-sahba bhi KHub hai

pi kar sharab gum main rahun apne hosh mein
ai zindagi ye tera taqaza bhi KHub hai

dekha hai main ne us ke ziyan mein bhi faeda
bazar-e-arzu ka KHasara bhi KHub hai

hoti hai awwalin hi mulaqat-e-aKHiri
insan ka ye maut se rishta bhi KHub hai

muddat se chal raha hun magar tai na kar saka
'shahid' ye rah-e-rast-e-tamanna bhi KHub hai
