maiñ mai-kade raah se ho kar nikal gayā

varna safar hayāt kaafī tavīl thā

main mai-kade ki rah se ho kar nikal gaya

warna safar hayat ka kafi tawil tha

jin se insāñ ko pahuñchtī hai hamesha taklīf

un da.avā hai ki vo asl ḳhudā vaale haiñ

jin se insan ko pahunchti hai hamesha taklif

un ka dawa hai ki wo asl KHuda wale hain

baḌh ke tūfān ko āġhosh meñ le le apnī

Dūbne vaale tire haath se sāhil to gayā

baDh ke tufan ko aaghosh mein le le apni

Dubne wale tere hath se sahil to gaya

dil abhī puurī tarah TuuTā nahīñ

dostoñ mehrbānī chāhiye

my heartbreak's not complete, it pends

I need some favours from my friends

dil abhi puri tarah TuTa nahin

doston ki mehrbani chahiye

my heartbreak's not complete, it pends

I need some favours from my friends

shikan na Daal jabīñ par sharāb dete hue

ye muskurātī huī chiiz muskurā ke pilā

shikan na Dal jabin par sharab dete hue

ye muskuraati hui chiz muskura ke pila

bārish sharāb-e-arsh hai ye soch kar 'adam'

bārish ke sab hurūf ko ulTā ke gayā

barish sharab-e-arsh hai ye soch kar 'adam'

barish ke sab huruf ko ulTa ke pi gaya

ai ġham-e-zindagī na ho nārāz

mujh ko aadat hai muskurāne

ai gham-e-zindagi na ho naraaz

mujh ko aadat hai muskurane ki

husn ik dilrubā hukūmat hai

ishq ik qudratī ġhulāmī hai

husn ek dilruba hukumat hai

ishq ek qudrati ghulami hai

taklīf miT ga.ī magar ehsās rah gayā

ḳhush huuñ ki kuchh na kuchh to mire paas rah gayā

taklif miT gai magar ehsas rah gaya

KHush hun ki kuchh na kuchh to mere pas rah gaya

jab tire nain muskurāte haiñ

ziist ke rañj bhuul jaate haiñ

jab tere nain muskuraate hain

zist ke ranj bhul jate hain

kaun añgḌā.ī le rahā hai 'adam'

do jahāñ laḌkhaḌā.e jaate haiñ

kaun angDai le raha hai 'adam'

do jahan laDkhaDae jate hain

kahte haiñ umr-e-rafta kabhī lauTtī nahīñ

mai-kade se merī javānī uThā ke

tis said this fleeting life once gone never returns

go to the tavern and bring back my youth again

kahte hain umr-e-rafta kabhi lauTti nahin

ja mai-kade se meri jawani uTha ke la

tis said this fleeting life once gone never returns

go to the tavern and bring back my youth again

ijāzat ho to maiñ tasdīq kar luuñ terī zulfoñ se

sunā hai zindagī ik ḳhūb-sūrat daam hai saaqī

ijazat ho to main tasdiq kar lun teri zulfon se

suna hai zindagi ek KHub-surat dam hai saqi

dil ḳhush huā hai masjid-e-vīrāñ ko dekh kar

merī tarah ḳhudā bhī ḳhāna ḳharāb hai

seeing the mosque deserted was to me a source of glee

his house too was desolate, just the same as me

dil KHush hua hai masjid-e-viran ko dekh kar

meri tarah KHuda ka bhi KHana KHarab hai

seeing the mosque deserted was to me a source of glee

his house too was desolate, just the same as me

ik hasīñ aañkh ke ishāre par

qāfile raah bhuul jaate haiñ

ek hasin aankh ke ishaare par

qafile rah bhul jate hain

zarā ik tabassum taklīf karnā

ki gulzār meñ phuul murjhā rahe haiñ

zara ek tabassum ki taklif karna

ki gulzar mein phul murjha rahe hain

maiñ umr bhar javāb nahīñ de sakā 'adam'

vo ik nazar meñ itne savālāt kar ga.e

main umr bhar jawab nahin de saka 'adam'

wo ek nazar mein itne sawalat kar gae

saaqī mujhe sharāb tohmat nahīñ pasand

mujh ko tirī nigāh ilzām chāhiye

the charge of being affected by wine, I do despise

I want to be accused of feasting from your eyes

saqi mujhe sharab ki tohmat nahin pasand

mujh ko teri nigah ka ilzam chahiye

the charge of being affected by wine, I do despise

I want to be accused of feasting from your eyes

shāyad mujhe nikāl ke pachhtā rahe hoñ aap

mahfil meñ is ḳhayāl se phir aa gayā huuñ maiñ

shayad mujhe nikal ke pachhta rahe hon aap

mahfil mein is KHayal se phir aa gaya hun main

ye kyā ki tum ne jafā se bhī haath khīñch liyā

mirī vafāoñ kuchh to sila diyā hotā

ye kya ki tum ne jafa se bhi hath khinch liya

meri wafaon ka kuchh to sila diya hota

jin ko daulat haqīr lagtī hai

uf vo kitne amiir hote haiñ

jin ko daulat haqir lagti hai

uf wo kitne amir hote hain

mai-kada hai yahāñ sukūñ se baiTh

koī aafat idhar nahīñ aatī

mai-kada hai yahan sukun se baiTh

koi aafat idhar nahin aati

thoḌī aql laa.e the ham bhī magar 'adam'

duniyā ke hādsāt ne dīvāna kar diyā

thoDi si aql lae the hum bhi magar 'adam'

duniya ke hadsat ne diwana kar diya

savāl kar ke maiñ ḳhud bahut pashemāñ huuñ

javāb de ke mujhe aur sharmsār na kar

sawal kar ke main KHud hi bahut pasheman hun

jawab de ke mujhe aur sharmsar na kar

vo mile bhī to ik jhijhak rahī

kaash thoḌī ham piye hote

wo mile bhi to ek jhijhak si rahi

kash thoDi si hum piye hote

chhoḌā nahīñ ḳhudī ko dauḌe ḳhudā ke pīchhe

āsāñ ko chhoḌ bande mushkil ko DhūñDte haiñ

chhoDa nahin KHudi ko dauDe KHuda ke pichhe

aasan ko chhoD bande mushkil ko DhunDte hain

sirf ik qadam uThā thā ġhalat rāh-e-shauq meñ

manzil tamām umr mujhe DhūñDhtī rahī

sirf ek qadam uTha tha ghalat rah-e-shauq mein

manzil tamam umr mujhe DhunDhti rahi

saaqī zarā nigāh milā kar to dekhnā

kambaḳht hosh meñ to nahīñ aa gayā huuñ maiñ

saqi zara nigah mila kar to dekhna

kambaKHt hosh mein to nahin aa gaya hun main

ba.az auqāt kisī aur ke milne se 'adam'

apnī hastī se mulāqāt bhī ho jaatī hai

baz auqat kisi aur ke milne se 'adam'

apni hasti se mulaqat bhi ho jati hai

kabhī to dair-o-haram se aa.egā vāpas

maiñ mai-kade meñ tirā intizār kar lūñgā

kabhi to dair-o-haram se tu aaega wapas

main mai-kade mein tera intizar kar lunga

log kahte haiñ ki tum se mohabbat hai mujhe

tum jo kahte ho ki vahshat hai to vahshat hogī

log kahte hain ki tum se hi mohabbat hai mujhe

tum jo kahte ho ki wahshat hai to wahshat hogi

zabān-e-hosh se ye kufr sarzad ho nahīñ saktā

maiñ kaise bin piye le luuñ ḳhudā naam ai saaqī

zaban-e-hosh se ye kufr sarzad ho nahin sakta

main kaise bin piye le lun KHuda ka nam ai saqi

pahle baḌī raġhbat thī tire naam se mujh ko

ab sun ke tirā naam maiñ kuchh soch rahā huuñ

pahle baDi raghbat thi tere nam se mujh ko

ab sun ke tera nam main kuchh soch raha hun

maiñ bad-nasīb huuñ mujh ko na de ḳhushī itnī

ki maiñ ḳhushī ko bhī le kar ḳharāb kar dūñgā

main bad-nasib hun mujh ko na de KHushi itni

ki main KHushi ko bhi le kar KHarab kar dunga

muskurāhaT hai husn zevar

muskurānā na bhuul jaayā karo

muskurahaT hai husn ka zewar

muskurana na bhul jaya karo

zindagī zor hai ravānī

kyā thamegā bahāv paanī

zindagi zor hai rawani ka

kya thamega bahaw pani ka

guloñ ko khil ke murjhānā paḌā hai

tabassum sazā kitnī baḌī hai

gulon ko khil ke murjhana paDa hai

tabassum ki saza kitni baDi hai

marne vaale to ḳhair haiñ bebas

jiine vaale kamāl karte haiñ

those who are dying can little else contrive

I am truly amazed at those who can survive

marne wale to KHair hain bebas

jine wale kamal karte hain

those who are dying can little else contrive

I am truly amazed at those who can survive

had se baḌh kar hasīn lagte ho

jhūTī qasmeñ zarūr khāyā karo

had se baDh kar hasin lagte ho

jhuTi qasmen zarur khaya karo

kashtī chalā rahā hai magar kis adā ke saath

ham bhī na Duub jaa.eñ kahīñ nā-ḳhudā ke saath

kashti chala raha hai magar kis ada ke sath

hum bhi na Dub jaen kahin na-KHuda ke sath

bole koī hañs kar to chhiḌak dete haiñ jaañ bhī

lekin koī rūThe to manāyā nahīñ jaatā

bole koi hans kar to chhiDak dete hain jaan bhi

lekin koi ruThe to manaya nahin jata

aañkh e'tibār kyā karte

jo bhī dekhā vo ḳhvāb meñ dekhā

aankh ka e'tibar kya karte

jo bhi dekha wo KHwab mein dekha

phir aaj 'adam' shaam se ġhamgīñ hai tabī.at

phir aaj sar-e-shām maiñ kuchh soch rahā huuñ

phir aaj 'adam' sham se ghamgin hai tabiat

phir aaj sar-e-sham main kuchh soch raha hun

dekhā hai kis nigāh se ne sitam-zarīf

mahsūs ho rahā hai maiñ ġharq-e-sharāb huuñ

dekha hai kis nigah se tu ne sitam-zarif

mahsus ho raha hai main gharq-e-sharab hun

aur to dil ko nahīñ hai koī taklīf 'adam'

haañ zarā nabz kisī vaqt Thahar jaatī hai

aur to dil ko nahin hai koi taklif 'adam'

han zara nabz kisi waqt Thahar jati hai

āñkhoñ se pilāte raho sāġhar meñ na Daalo

ab ham se koī jaam uThāyā nahīñ jaatā

aankhon se pilate raho saghar mein na Dalo

ab hum se koi jam uThaya nahin jata

'adam' roz-e-ajal jab qismateñ taqsīm hotī thiiñ

muqaddar jagah maiñ sāġhar-o-mīnā uThā laayā

'adam' roz-e-ajal jab qismaten taqsim hoti thin

muqaddar ki jagah main saghar-o-mina uTha laya

aap ik zahmat-e-nazar to kareñ

kaun behosh ho nahīñ saktā

aap ek zahmat-e-nazar to karen

kaun behosh ho nahin sakta

lazzat-e-ġham to baḳhsh us ne

hausle bhī 'adam' diye hote

lazzat-e-gham to baKHsh di us ne

hausle bhi 'adam' diye hote

sab ko pahuñchā ke un manzil par

aap raste meñ rah gayā huuñ maiñ

sab ko pahuncha ke un ki manzil par

aap raste mein rah gaya hun main
