mohabbat to koī had, koī sarhad nahīñ hotī

hamāre darmiyāñ ye fāsle, kaise nikal aa.e

mohabbat ki to koi had, koi sarhad nahin hoti

hamare darmiyan ye fasle, kaise nikal aae

nāḳhudā jin nahīñ un ḳhudā hotā hai

kashtiyan sab ki kinare pe pahunch jati hain

naKHuda jin ka nahin un ka KHuda hota hai
