    ik shaḳhs raat band-e-qabā kholtā rahā

    shab siyāhiyoñ meñ shafaq gholtā rahā

    tanhā.iyoñ meñ aatī rahī jab bhī us yaad

    saaya ik qarīb mire Doltā rahā

    husn-e-bahār ḳhuub magar dīda-e-bahār

    motī chaman ḳhaak pe kyuuñ roltā rahā

    us ne sukūt ko bhī takallum samajh liyā

    kuchh is adā-e-ḳhās se dil boltā rahā

    hijrāñ raat mashġhala-e-dil se pūchhiye

    us zulf-e-ḳham-ba-ḳham girah kholtā rahā

    ham kushtagān-e-ḳhvāb girāñ-gosh rahe

    sūraj saroñ pe vaqt-e-sahar boltā rahā

    is rāh-e-jazb se bhī guzarnā paḌā 'zahīr'

    jis raah meñ ḳhirad qadam Doltā rahā

    ek shaKHs raat band-e-qaba kholta raha

    shab ki siyahiyon mein shafaq gholta raha

    tanhaiyon mein aati rahi jab bhi us ki yaad

    saya sa ek qarib mere Dolta raha

    husn-e-bahaar KHub magar dida-e-bahaar

    moti chaman ki KHak pe kyun rolta raha

    us ne sukut ko bhi takallum samajh liya

    kuchh is ada-e-KHas se dil bolta raha

    hijran ki raat mashghala-e-dil se puchhiye

    us zulf-e-KHam-ba-KHam ki girah kholta raha

    hum kushtagan-e-KHwab giran-gosh hi rahe

    suraj saron pe waqt-e-sahar bolta raha

    is rah-e-jazb se bhi guzarna paDa 'zahir'

    jis rah mein KHirad ka qadam Dolta raha
