MORE BYNajeeb Ahmad

    ishq-ābād faqīroñ adā rakhte haiñ

    aur kyā is ke sivā ahl-e-anā rakhte haiñ

    ham tahī-dast kuchh aise bhī tahī-dast nahīñ

    kuchh nahīñ rakhte magar pās-e-vafā rakhte haiñ

    zindagī bhar kamā.ī ye ta.alluq to hai

    kuchh bache na bache is ko bachā rakhte haiñ

    sher meñ phūTte haiñ apnī zabāñ ke chhāle

    nutq rakhte haiñ magar sab se judā rakhte haiñ

    ham nahīñ sāhib-e-takrīm to hairat kaisī

    sar pe dastār na paikar pe abā rakhte haiñ

    shahr āvāz jhilmil se damak uTTheñge

    shab-e-ḳhāmosh ruḳh sham-e-navā rakhte haiñ

    ik tirī yaad gale aise paḌī hai ki 'najīb'

    aaj kaam bhī ham kal pe uThā rakhte haiñ

    ishq-abaad faqiron ki ada rakhte hain

    aur kya is ke siwa ahl-e-ana rakhte hain

    hum tahi-dast kuchh aise bhi tahi-dast nahin

    kuchh nahin rakhte magar pas-e-wafa rakhte hain

    zindagi bhar ki kamai ye talluq hi to hai

    kuchh bache ya na bache is ko bacha rakhte hain

    sher mein phuTte hain apni zaban ke chhaale

    nutq rakhte hain magar sab se juda rakhte hain

    hum nahin sahib-e-takrim to hairat kaisi

    sar pe dastar na paikar pe aba rakhte hain

    shahr aawaz ki jhilmil se damak uTThenge

    shab-e-KHamosh ki ruKH sham-e-nawa rakhte hain

    ek teri yaad gale aise paDi hai ki 'najib'

    aaj ka kaam bhi hum kal pe uTha rakhte hain
