  • Ghazal


saqi ho aur chaman ho mina ho aur hum hon


saaqī ho aur chaman ho miinā ho aur ham hoñ
bārāñ ho aur havā ho sabza ho aur ham hoñ

zāhid ho aur taqvā aabid ho aur musallā
maalā ho aur barahman sahbā ho aur ham hoñ

majnūñ haiñ ham hameñ to is shahr se hai vahshat
shahrī hoñ aur bastī sahrā ho aur ham hoñ

yā-rab koī muḳhālif hove na gird mere
ḳhalvat ho aur shab ho pyārā ho aur ham hoñ

dīvāngī kā ham ko kyā haz ho har taraf gar
laḌke hoñ aur phathre balvā ho aur ham hoñ

auroñ ko aish-o-ishrat ai charḳh-e-be-muravvat
ġhussa ho aur ġham ho ronā ho aur ham hoñ

īmān o diiñ se 'tābāñ' kuchh kaam nahīñ hai ham ko
saaqī ho aur mai ho duniyā ho aur ham hoñ

saqi ho aur chaman ho mina ho aur hum hon
baran ho aur hawa ho sabza ho aur hum hon

zahid ho aur taqwa aabid ho aur musalla
mala ho aur barahman sahba ho aur hum hon

majnun hain hum hamein to is shahr se hai wahshat
shahri hon aur basti sahra ho aur hum hon

ya-rab koi muKHalif howe na gird mere
KHalwat ho aur shab ho pyara ho aur hum hon

diwangi ka hum ko kya haz ho har taraf gar
laDke hon aur phathre balwa ho aur hum hon

auron ko aish-o-ishrat ai charKH-e-be-murawwat
ghussa ho aur gham ho rona ho aur hum hon

iman o din se 'taban' kuchh kaam nahin hai hum ko
saqi ho aur mai ho duniya ho aur hum hon
