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

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

aap ik zahmat-e-nazar to kareñ

kaun behosh ho nahīñ saktā

aap ek zahmat-e-nazar to karen

kaun behosh ho nahin sakta

'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

ai dost mohabbat ke sadme tanhā uThāne paḌte haiñ

rahbar to faqat is raste meñ do gaam sahārā dete haiñ

ai dost mohabbat ke sadme tanha hi uThane paDte hain

rahbar to faqat is raste mein do gam sahaara dete hain

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

chhup chhup ke jo aatā hai abhī merī galī meñ

ik roz mire saath sar-e-ām chalegā

chhup chhup ke jo aata hai abhi meri gali mein

ek roz mere sath sar-e-am chalega

daroġh ke imtihāñ-kade meñ sadā yahī kārobār hogā

jo baḌh ke tā.īd-e-haq karegā vahī sazāvār-e-dār hogā

darogh ke imtihan-kade mein sada yahi karobar hoga

jo baDh ke taid-e-haq karega wahi sazawar-e-dar hoga

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

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

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

girte haiñ log garmī-e-bāzār dekh kar

sarkār dekh kar mirī sarkār dekh kar

ham aur log haiñ ham se bahut ġhurūr na kar

kalīm thā jo tirā naaz sah gayā hogā

hum aur log hain hum se bahut ghurur na kar

kalim tha jo tera naz sah gaya hoga

ham ko shāhoñ adālat se tavaqqo to nahīñ

aap kahte haiñ to zanjīr hilā dete haiñ

hum ko shahon ki adalat se tawaqqo to nahin

aap kahte hain to zanjir hila dete hain

har dil-fareb chiiz nazar ġhubār hai

āñkheñ hasīn hoñ to ḳhizāñ bhī bahār hai

har dil-fareb chiz nazar ka ghubar hai

aankhen hasin hon to KHizan bhi bahaar hai

sunā hai zindagī ik ḳhūb-sūrat daam hai saaqī

ijazat ho to main tasdiq kar lun teri zulfon se

ek hasin aankh ke ishaare par

qafile rah bhul jate hain

jab tire nain muskurāte haiñ

ziist ke rañj bhuul jaate haiñ

jab tere nain muskuraate hain

zist ke ranj bhul jate hain

mai-kade se merī javānī uThā ke

main bad-nasib hun mujh ko na de KHushi itni

ki main KHushi ko bhi le kar KHarab kar dunga

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
