MORE BY Jaan Nisar Akhtar

    ranj-o-ġham māñge hai andoh-o-balā māñge hai

    dil vo mujrim hai ki ḳhud apnī sazā māñge hai

    chup hai har zaḳhm-e-gulū chup hai shahīdoñ lahū

    dast-e-qātil hai jo mehnat sila māñge hai

    bhī ik daulat-e-nāyāb hai par kyā kahiye

    zindagī aur bhī kuchh tere sivā māñge hai

    khoī khoī ye nigāheñ ye ḳhamīda palkeñ

    haath uThā.e koī jis tarah duā māñge hai

    raas ab aa.egī ashkoñ na aahoñ fazā

    aaj pyaar na.ī āb-o-havā māñge hai

    bāñsurī koī naġhma na sahī chīḳh sahī

    har sukūt-e-shab-e-ġham koī sadā māñge hai

    laakh munkir sahī par zauq-e-parastish merā

    aaj bhī koī sanam koī ḳhudā māñge hai

    saañs vaise zamāne rukī jaatī hai

    vo badan aur bhī kuchh tañg qabā māñge hai

    dil har ik haal se begāna huā jaatā hai

    ab tavajjoh na taġhāful na adā māñge hai

    ranj-o-gham mange hai andoh-o-bala mange hai

    dil wo mujrim hai ki KHud apni saza mange hai

    chup hai har zaKHm-e-gulu chup hai shahidon ka lahu

    dast-e-qatil hai jo mehnat ka sila mange hai

    tu bhi ek daulat-e-nayab hai par kya kahiye

    zindagi aur bhi kuchh tere siwa mange hai

    khoi khoi ye nigahen ye KHamida palken

    hath uThae koi jis tarah dua mange hai

    ras ab aaegi ashkon ki na aahon ki faza

    aaj ka pyar nai aab-o-hawa mange hai

    bansuri ka koi naghma na sahi chiKH sahi

    har sukut-e-shab-e-gham koi sada mange hai

    lakh munkir sahi par zauq-e-parastish mera

    aaj bhi koi sanam koi KHuda mange hai

    sans waise hi zamane ki ruki jati hai

    wo badan aur bhi kuchh tang qaba mange hai

    dil har ek haal se begana hua jata hai

    ab tawajjoh na taghaful na ada mange hai
