  • Ghazal


ranj-o-gham lakh hon muskuraate raho


ranj-o-ġham laakh hoñ muskurāte raho
dost dushman se milte milāte raho

ye añdhere haiñ mehmān ik raat ke
tum magar sub.h tak jagmagāte raho

maiñ bhulāne kī koshish karūñgā tumheñ
tum mujhe roz-o-shab yaad aate raho

raah ke pech-o-ḳham ḳhud sulajh jā.eñge
sū-e-manzil qadam ko baḌhāte raho

abr ban kar baraste raho har taraf
umr shādābiyoñ kī baḌhāte raho

maut aa.e to ḳhāmosh kar jā.egī
zindagī giit hai is ko gaate raho

tāza-dam mujh ko rakhnā hai 'hāfiz' to phir
har qadam par mujhe āzmāte raho

ranj-o-gham lakh hon muskuraate raho
dost dushman se milte milate raho

ye andhere hain mehman ek raat ke
tum magar subh tak jagmagate raho

main bhulane ki koshish karunga tumhein
tum mujhe roz-o-shab yaad aate raho

rah ke pech-o-KHam KHud sulajh jaenge
su-e-manzil qadam ko baDhate raho

abr ban kar baraste raho har taraf
umr shadabiyon ki baDhate raho

maut aae to KHamosh kar jaegi
zindagi git hai is ko gate raho

taza-dam mujh ko rakhna hai 'hafiz' to phir
har qadam par mujhe aazmate raho
