aaj ki raat

MORE BY Sabir Dutt

    raat aate mujhe ḳhud se bhī Dar lagtā hai

    peḌ chalte haiñ havāoñ se sadā aatī hai

    merī tanhā.ī ḳhāmosh fazā gaatī hai

    raushnī jāgne lagtī hai siyah-ḳhāne meñ

    jaan paḌ jaatī hai bhūle hue afsāne meñ

    aane lagtī haiñ ka.ī ajnabī mahkāreñ

    gūñjne lagtī haiñ pāzeb jhankāreñ

    haath meñ vaqt ke hotā hai masarrat rabāb

    jagmagāte haiñ añdheroñ meñ hazāroñ mahtāb

    baat hone nahīñ paatī ki bichhaḌ jaatī ho

    merī taqdīr mānind bigaḌ jaatī ho

    aaj raat bhī shāyad yahī aalam hogā!

    chāñd sūraj tarah lamhe nikal ā.eñge

    dekhte dekhte din raat badal jā.eñge

    vahī palkeñ vahī zulfeñ vahī sūrat hogī

    mere ghar meñ mirī mehmān mohabbat hogī!

    raat aate mujhe ḳhud se bhī Dar lagtā hai

    raat aate hi mujhe KHud se bhi Dar lagta hai

    peD chalte hain hawaon se sada aati hai

    meri tanhai ki KHamosh faza gati hai

    raushni jagne lagti hai siyah-KHane mein

    jaan paD jati hai bhule hue afsane mein

    aane lagti hain kai ajnabi mahkaren si

    gunjne lagti hain pazeb ki jhankaren si

    hath mein waqt ke hota hai masarrat ka rabab

    jagmagate hain andheron mein hazaron mahtab

    baat hone nahin pati ki bichhaD jati ho

    meri taqdir ki manind bigaD jati ho

    aaj ki raat bhi shayad yahi aalam hoga!

    chand suraj ki tarah lamhe nikal aaenge

    dekhte dekhte din raat badal jaenge

    wahi palken wahi zulfen wahi surat hogi

    mere ghar mein meri mehman mohabbat hogi!

    raat aate hi mujhe KHud se bhi Dar lagta hai
