KHwab-gahon se azan-e-fajr Takraati rahi


ḳhvāb-gāhoñ se azān-e-fajr Takrātī rahī
din chaḌhe tak ḳhāmushī mimbar pe chillātī rahī

ek lamhe kī ḳhatā phailī to saarī zindagī
chubhte zarre kāñch ke palkoñ se chunvātī rahī

kab yaqīñ thā koī aa.egā magar zālim havā
band darvāze ko dastak de ke khulvātī rahī

lams-e-harf-o-saut kī lazzat se vāqif thī magar
pahlū-e-āvāz meñ taḳh.īl sharmātī rahī

sūrateñ aisī ki jin ke ik tasavvur se 'zahīr'
jism ke dariyā kī ik ek mauj bal khātī rahī

KHwab-gahon se azan-e-fajr Takraati rahi
din chaDhe tak KHamushi mimbar pe chillati rahi

ek lamhe ki KHata phaili to sari zindagi
chubhte zarre kanch ke palkon se chunwati rahi

kab yaqin tha koi aaega magar zalim hawa
band darwaze ko dastak de ke khulwati rahi

lams-e-harf-o-saut ki lazzat se waqif thi magar
pahlu-e-awaz mein taKHil sharmati rahi

suraten aisi ki jin ke ek tasawwur se 'zahir'
jism ke dariya ki ek ek mauj bal khati rahi
