MORE BYSahir Hoshiyarpuri

    ek faqīr

    ek insāñ paikar-e-iḳhlās rūh-e-rāstī

    ik faqīr-e-be-navā īsār jis zindagī

    jis ke har qaul-o-amal meñ amn paiġhām thā

    jis har iqdām goyā āfiyat-anjām thā

    jis duniyā bandagī bhagTī surūr-e-jāvedāñ

    jis duniyā kaif-o-sarmastī hāsil be-gumāñ

    āshtī thī jis fitrat jis maz.hab pyaar thā

    ḳhidmat-e-insāniyat jo alam-bardār thā

    azm ne jis ke har ik mushkil ko āsāñ kar diyā

    jazba-e-ehsās-e-ḳhuddārī bashar meñ bhar diyā

    naaz uThā.e hind ke vo hind ġham-ḳhvār thā

    kārvān-e-hurriyat rahbar-o-sālār thā

    ye bhī hai mojiz-bayānī us har tahrīr

    naqsh-e-farsūda se paidā ik na.ī tasvīr

    ḳhaak se sho.ale uThe aur āsmāñ par chhā ga.e

    māh-o-anjum ban ga.e kaun-o-makāñ par chhā ga.e

    tīrgī bhāgī jahālat fazā chhuTne lagī

    haule haule tīra-o-tārīk shab kaTne lagī

    har taraf kaif-o-masarrat har taraf nūr-o-surūr

    ġhunche ġhunche par tabassum chashm-e-nargis par ġhurūr

    ye fusūñ-kārī huī jis ke sabab vo kaun thā

    ye junūñ-kārī huī jis ke sabab vo kaun thā

    naam thā gāñdhī magar us ke hazāroñ naam haiñ

    ek mai-ḳhāna hai jis meñ har tarah ke jaam haiñ

    ek faqir

    ek insan paikar-e-iKHlas ruh-e-rasti

    ek faqir-e-be-nawa isar jis ki zindagi

    jis ke har qaul-o-amal mein amn ka paigham tha

    jis ka har iqdam goya aafiyat-anjam tha

    jis ki duniya bandagi bhagTi surur-e-jawedan

    jis ki duniya kaif-o-sarmasti ki hasil be-guman

    aashti thi jis ki fitrat jis ka mazhab pyar tha

    KHidmat-e-insaniyat ka jo alam-bardar tha

    azm ne jis ke har ek mushkil ko aasan kar diya

    jazba-e-ehsas-e-KHuddari bashar mein bhar diya

    naz uThae hind ke wo hind ka gham-KHwar tha

    karwan-e-hurriyat ka rahbar-o-salar tha

    ye bhi hai mojiz-bayani us ki har tahrir ki

    naqsh-e-farsuda se paida ek nai taswir ki

    KHak se shoale uThe aur aasman par chha gae

    mah-o-anjum ban gae kaun-o-makan par chha gae

    tirgi bhagi jahaalat ki faza chhuTne lagi

    haule haule tira-o-tarik shab kaTne lagi

    har taraf kaif-o-masarrat har taraf nur-o-surur

    ghunche ghunche par tabassum chashm-e-nargis par ghurur

    ye fusun-kari hui jis ke sabab wo kaun tha

    ye junun-kari hui jis ke sabab wo kaun tha

    nam tha gandhi magar us ke hazaron nam hain

    ek mai-KHana hai jis mein har tarah ke jam hain
