vo jaadū adā.eñ adāoñ meñ jaadū

ye pahuñchā.eñ ham ko fanā se baqā tak

wo jadu adaen adaon mein jadu

ye pahunchaen hum ko fana se baqa tak

sitāroñ gardish diloñ bichhaḌnā

ye kaise ḳhudā hai kaisī ḳhudā.ī

sitaron ki gardish dilon ka bichhaDna

ye kaise KHuda ki hai kaisi KHudai

ye kaisī jagah hai ki dil kho rahā hai

bayābāñ hai sahrā hai gulshan hai kyā hai

ye kaisi jagah hai ki dil kho raha hai

bayaban hai sahra hai gulshan hai kya hai

rāh-e-hayāt meñ na milī ek pal ḳhushī

ġham ye bojh dosh pe sāmān rahā

rah-e-hayat mein na mili ek pal KHushi

gham ka ye bojh dosh pe saman sa raha

rasm-e-duniyā ke salāsil meñ giraftārī hai

mat Thaharnā ki kahīñ phāñs javāñ-tar ho jaa.e

rasm-e-duniya ke salasil mein giraftari hai

mat Thaharna ki kahin phans jawan-tar ho jae

tire firāq meñ ham ne bahā.e ashk-e-jigar

ye sab ne chāhā magar aa.e to lahū aa.e

tere firaq mein hum ne bahae ashk-e-jigar

ye sab ne chaha magar aae to lahu aae

ġham-e-vajūd mātam karūñ to kaise jiyūñ

magar ḳhudā tire dāman pe daaġh hai ki nahīñ

gham-e-wajud ka matam karun to kaise jiyun

magar KHuda tere daman pe dagh hai ki nahin
