    aaj, is sā.at-e-duzdīda-o-nāyāb meñ bhii,

    jism hai ḳhvāb se lazzat-kash-e-ḳhamyāza tirā

    tere mizhgāñ ke tale niiñd shabnam nuzūl

    jis se Dhal jaane ko hai ġhāza tirā

    zindagī tere liye ras bhare ḳhvāboñ hujūm

    zindagī mere liye kāvish-e-bedārī hai:

    ittifāqāt ko dekh

    is hasīñ raat ko dekh

    toḌ de vahm ke jaal

    chhoḌ de apne shabistānoñ ko jaane ḳhayāl,

    ḳhauf-e-mauhūm tirī ruuh pe kyā taarī hai!

    itnā be-sarfa nahīñ terā jamāl

    is junūñ-ḳhez hasīñ raat ko dekh

    aaj, is sā.at-e-duzdīda-o-nāyāb meñ bhii,

    tishnagī ruuh āsūda na ho

    jab tirā jism javānī meñ hai nīsān-e-bahār

    rañg-o-nik.hat fishār!

    phuul haiñ, ghaas hai, ashjār haiñ, dīvāreñ haiñ

    aur kuchh saa.e ki haiñ muḳhtasar o tīra-o-tār,

    tujh ko kyā is se ġharaz hai ki ḳhudā hai ki nahīñ?

    dekh pattoñ meñ laraztī huī kirnoñ nafūz

    sarsarātī huī baḌhtī hai ragoñ meñ jaise

    avvalīñ bāda-gusārī meñ na.ī tund sharāb

    tujh ko kyā is se ġharaz hai ki ḳhudā hai ki nahīñ

    kahkashāñ apnī tamannāoñ hai rāh-guzār

    kaash is raah pe mil kar kabhī parvāz kareñ

    ik na.ī ziist dar baaz kareñ!

    āsmāñ duur hai lekin ye zamīñ hai nazdīk

    aa isī ḳhaak ko ham jalva-gah-e-rāz kareñ!

    rūheñ mil saktī nahīñ haiñ to ye lab mil jā.eñ,

    aa isī lazzat-e-jāved āġhāz kareñ!

    sub.h jab baaġh meñ ras lene ko zambūr aa.e

    us ke bose se hoñ mad.hosh saman aur gulāb

    shabnamī ghaas pe do paikar-e-yaḳh-basta mileñ,

    aur ḳhudā hai to pashemāñ ho jaa.e!

    aaj, is saat-e-duzdida-o-nayab mein bhi,

    jism hai KHwab se lazzat-kash-e-KHamyaza tera

    tere mizhgan ke tale nind ki shabnam ka nuzul

    jis se Dhal jaane ko hai ghaza tera

    zindagi tere liye ras bhare KHwabon ka hujum

    zindagi mere liye kawish-e-bedari hai:

    ittifaqat ko dekh

    is hasin raat ko dekh

    toD de wahm ke jal

    chhoD de apne shabistanon ko jaane ka KHayal,

    KHauf-e-mauhum teri ruh pe kya tari hai!

    itna be-sarfa nahin tera jamal

    is junun-KHez hasin raat ko dekh

    aaj, is saat-e-duzdida-o-nayab mein bhi,

    tishnagi ruh ki aasuda na ho

    jab tera jism jawani mein hai nisan-e-bahaar

    rang-o-nikhat ka fishaar!

    phul hain, ghas hai, ashjar hain, diwaren hain

    aur kuchh sae ki hain muKHtasar o tira-o-tar,

    tujh ko kya is se gharaz hai ki KHuda hai ki nahin?

    dekh patton mein larazti hui kirnon ka nafuz

    sarsaraati hui baDhti hai ragon mein jaise

    awwalin baada-gusari mein nai tund sharab

    tujh ko kya is se gharaz hai ki KHuda hai ki nahin

    kahkashan apni tamannaon ka hai rah-guzar

    kash is rah pe mil kar kabhi parwaz karen

    ek nai zist ka dar baz karen!

    aasman dur hai lekin ye zamin hai nazdik

    aa isi KHak ko hum jalwa-gah-e-raaz karen!

    ruhen mil sakti nahin hain to ye lab hi mil jaen,

    aa isi lazzat-e-jawed ka aaghaz karen!

    subh jab bagh mein ras lene ko zambur aae

    us ke bose se hon madhosh saman aur gulab

    shabnami ghas pe do paikar-e-yaKH-basta milen,

    aur KHuda hai to pasheman ho jae!
