Sher 12

dar-o-dīvār pe hasrat se nazar karte haiñ

ḳhush raho ahl-e-vatan ham to safar karte haiñ

dar-o-diwar pe hasrat se nazar karte hain

KHush raho ahl-e-watan hum to safar karte hain

ulfat ne tirī ham ko to rakkhā na kahīñ

dariyā na jañgal samā na zamīñ

ulfat ne teri hum ko to rakkha na kahin ka

dariya ka na jangal ka sama ka na zamin ka

yahī tashvīsh shab-o-roz hai bangāle meñ

lucknow phir kabhī dikhlā.e muqaddar merā

yahi tashwish shab-o-roz hai bangale mein

lucknow phir kabhi dikhlae muqaddar mera
