    dekh kar rang-e-chaman ho na pareshan mali

    Kaukab-e-ghuncha se shaKHen hain chamakne wali

    KHas o KHashak se hota hai gulistan KHali

    ghul-bar-andaz hai KHun-e-shohda ki lali

    rang gardun ka zara dekh to unnabi hai

    ye nikalte hue suraj ki ufuq-tabi hai

    ummaten gulshan-e-hasti mein samar-chida bhi hain

    aur mahrum-e-samar bhi hain KHizan-dida bhi hain

    saikDon naKHl hain kahida bhi baalida bhi hain

    saikDon batn-e-chaman mein abhi poshida bhi hain

    naKHl-e-islam namuna hai birau-mandi ka

    phal hai ye saikDon sadiyon ki chaman-bandi ka

    pak hai gard-e-watan se sar-e-daman tera

    tu wo yusuf hai ki har misr hai kanan tera

    qafila ho na sakega kabhi viran tera

    ghair yak-bang-e-dara kuchh nahin saman tera

    naKHl-e-shama asti o dar shola do-resha-e-tu

    aaqibat-soz bawad saya-e-andesha-e-tu

    tu na miT jaega iran ke miT jaane se

    nashsha-e-mai ko talluq nahin paimane se

    hai ayan yurish-e-tatar ke afsane se

    pasban mil gae kabe ko sanam-KHane se

    kashti-e-haq ka zamane mein sahaara tu hai

    asr-e-nau-raat hai dhundla sa sitara tu hai

    hai jo hangama bapa yurish-e-bulghaari ka

    ghafilon ke liye paigham hai bedari ka

    tu samajhta hai ye saman hai dil-azari ka

    imtihan hai tere isar ka KHuddari ka

    kyun hirasan hai sahil-e-faras-e-ada se

    nur-e-haq bujh na sakega nafas-e-ada se

    chashm-e-aqwam se maKHfi hai haqiqat teri

    hai abhi mahfil-e-hasti ko zarurat teri

    zinda rakhti hai zamane ko hararat teri

    kaukab-e-qismat-e-imkan hai KHilafat teri

    waqt-e-fursat hai kahan kaam abhi baqi hai

    nur-e-tauhid ka itmam abhi baqi hai

    misl-e-bu qaid hai ghunche mein pareshan ho ja

    raKHt-bar-dosh hawa-e-chamanistan ho ja

    hai tunak-maya tu zarre se bayaban ho ja

    naghma-e-mauj hai hangama-e-tufan ho ja

    quwwat-e-ishq se har past ko baala kar de

    dahr mein ism-e-mohammad se ujala kar de

    ho na ye phul to bulbul ka tarannum bhi na ho

    chaman-e-dahr mein kaliyon ka tabassum bhi na ho

    ye na saqi ho to phir mai bhi na ho KHum bhi na ho

    bazm-e-tauhid bhi duniya mein na ho tum bhi na ho

    KHema-e-aflak ka istada isi nam se hai

    nabz-e-hasti tapish-amada isi nam se hai

    dasht mein daman-e-kohsar mein maidan mein hai

    bahr mein mauj ki aaghosh mein tufan mein hai

    chin ke shahr maraqash ke bayaban mein hai

    aur poshida musalman ke iman mein hai

    chashm-e-aqwam ye nazzara abad tak dekhe

    rifat-e-shan-e-rafana-laka-zikrak dekhe

    mardum-e-chashm-e-zamin yani wo kali duniya

    wo tumhaare shohda palne wali duniya

    garmi-e-mehr ki parwarda hilali duniya

    ishq wale jise kahte hain bilali duniya

    tapish-andoz hai is nam se pare ki tarah

    ghota-zan nur mein hai aankh ke tare ki tarah

    aql hai teri sipar ishq hai shamshir teri

    mere darwesh KHilafat hai jahangir teri

    ma-siwa-allah ke liye aag hai takbir teri

    tu musalman ho to taqdir hai tadbir teri

    ki mohammad se wafa tu ne to hum tere hain

    ye jahan chiz hai kya lauh-o-qalam tere hain
