ishq ko dil mein chhupa lete hain kaamil kyunkar


ishq ko dil meñ chhupā lete haiñ kāmil kyūñkar
un par āsān huā kartī hai mushkil kyūñkar

hadaf-e-nāvik-e-mizgān-o-kamāñ abrū thā
na taḌaptā shab-e-furqat dil-e-bismil kyūñkar

apne bīmār-e-mohabbat ko bhī lete jaao
tum chale jaate ho pahlū meñ rahe dil kyūñkar

sar kaTā kar tire kūche meñ yahī dekhūñgā
suraḳh-rū hotā hai ḳhanjar tirā qātil kyūñkar

mir.at-e-dil kī safā.ī vo kahāñ pā.egā
aa.ina hogā ruḳh-e-yār ke qābil kyūñkar

ye tamāshā bhī mire dil ko jilā kar dekho
sham.a hasrat se jalī bar-sar-e-mahfil kyūñkar

bahr-e-ulfat meñ bhī vahshat thī dil-e-ġham-ghīñ ko
rakhtā āġhosh meñ phir dāman-e-sāhil kyūñkar

dekhnā lutf dam-e-qatl zarā ai qātil
ḳhāk-o-ḳhūñ meñ huā ġhaltāñ tirā bismil kyūñkar

zer-e-ḳhanjar mire ḳhuuñ ne use uḌ kar thāmā
us ke panje se chhuTe dāman-e-qātil kyuuñ kar

dekhnā gar ho to aao maiñ dikhā duuñ tum ko
ban gayā sheḳh-e-haram but-kada-e-dil kyūñkar

rāz-e-sar-basta 'jamīla' maiñ kahūñ kyā tujh se
ho gayā merā ye dil ārif-e-kāmil kyūñkar

ishq ko dil mein chhupa lete hain kaamil kyunkar
un par aasan hua karti hai mushkil kyunkar

hadaf-e-nawik-e-mizgan-o-kaman abru tha
na taDapta shab-e-furqat dil-e-bismil kyunkar

apne bimar-e-mohabbat ko bhi lete jao
tum chale jate ho pahlu mein rahe dil kyunkar

sar kaTa kar tere kuche mein yahi dekhunga
suraKH-ru hota hai KHanjar tera qatil kyunkar

mirat-e-dil ki safai wo kahan paega
aaina hoga ruKH-e-yar ke qabil kyunkar

ye tamasha bhi mere dil ko jila kar dekho
shama hasrat se jali bar-sar-e-mahfil kyunkar

bahr-e-ulfat mein bhi wahshat thi dil-e-gham-ghin ko
rakhta aaghosh mein phir daman-e-sahil kyunkar

dekhna lutf dam-e-qatl zara ai qatil
KHak-o-KHun mein hua ghaltan tera bismil kyunkar

zer-e-KHanjar mere KHun ne use uD kar thama
us ke panje se chhuTe daman-e-qatil kyun kar

dekhna gar ho to aao main dikha dun tum ko
ban gaya sheKH-e-haram but-kada-e-dil kyunkar

raaz-e-sar-basta 'jamila' main kahun kya tujh se
ho gaya mera ye dil aarif-e-kaamil kyunkar
