Sher-o-Shayari 8

vafā nigāh tālib hai imtihāñ nahīñ

vo merī ruuh meñ jhāñke na āzmā.e mujhe

wafa nigah ki talib hai imtihan ki nahin

wo meri ruh mein jhanke na aazmae mujhe

kabhī ḳhayāl ke rishtoñ ko bhī TaTol ke dekh

maiñ tujh se duur sahī tujh se kuchh judā bhī nahīñ

kabhi KHayal ke rishton ko bhi TaTol ke dekh

main tujh se dur sahi tujh se kuchh juda bhi nahin

zaat ā.īna jab dekhā to hairānī huī

maiñ na thā goyā koī mujh thā mere rū-ba-rū

zat ka aaina jab dekha to hairani hui

main na tha goya koi mujh sa tha mere ru-ba-ru

chāñd mere ghar meñ utrā thā kahīñ Duubā na thā

ai mire sūraj abhī aanā tirā achchhā na thā

chand mere ghar mein utra tha kahin Duba na tha

ai mere suraj abhi aana tera achchha na tha

thā e'timād-e-husn se is qadar tahī

ā.īna dekhne tujhe hausla na thā

tha e'timad-e-husn se tu is qadar tahi

aaina dekhne ka tujhe hausla na tha
