irāde bāñdhtā huuñ sochtā huuñ toḌ detā huuñ

kahīñ aisā na ho jaa.e kahīñ aisā na ho jaa.e

irade bandhta hun sochta hun toD deta hun

kahin aisa na ho jae kahin aisa na ho jae

dostoñ ko bhī mile dard daulat rab

merā apnā bhalā ho mujhe manzūr nahīñ

may my friends too receive this wealth of pain

I cannot envisage my solitary gain

doston ko bhi mile dard ki daulat ya rab

mera apna hi bhala ho mujhe manzur nahin

may my friends too receive this wealth of pain

I cannot envisage my solitary gain

'hafīz' apnī bolī mohabbat bolī

na urdu na hindī na hindostānī

'hafiz' apni boli mohabbat ki boli

na urdu na hindi na hindostani

kyuuñ hijr ke shikve kartā hai kyuuñ dard ke rone rotā hai

ab ishq kiyā to sabr bhī kar is meñ to yahī kuchh hotā hai

kyun hijr ke shikwe karta hai kyun dard ke rone rota hai

ab ishq kiya to sabr bhi kar is mein to yahi kuchh hota hai

dekhā jo khā ke tiir kamīñ-gāh taraf

apne dostoñ se mulāqāt ho ga.ī

dekha jo kha ke tir kamin-gah ki taraf

apne hi doston se mulaqat ho gai

aañkh kam-baḳht se us bazm meñ aañsū na rukā

ek qatre ne Duboyā mujhe dariyā ho kar

aankh kam-baKHt se us bazm mein aansu na ruka

ek qatre ne Duboya mujhe dariya ho kar

vafā jis se bevafā ho gayā

jise but banāyā ḳhudā ho gayā

I was constant but she eschewed fidelity

the one I idolized, alas, claimed divinity

wafa jis se ki bewafa ho gaya

jise but banaya KHuda ho gaya

I was constant but she eschewed fidelity

the one I idolized, alas, claimed divinity

dil ko ḳhudā yaad tale bhī dabā chukā

kam-baḳht phir bhī chain na paa.e to kyā karūñ

dil ko KHuda ki yaad tale bhi daba chuka

kam-baKHt phir bhi chain na pae to kya karun

ye mulāqāt mulāqāt nahīñ hotī hai

baat hotī hai magar baat nahīñ hotī hai

ye mulaqat mulaqat nahin hoti hai

baat hoti hai magar baat nahin hoti hai

vafāoñ ke badle jafā kar rahe haiñ

maiñ kyā kar rahā huuñ vo kyā kar rahe haiñ

wafaon ke badle jafa kar rahe hain

main kya kar raha hun wo kya kar rahe hain

koī chārā nahīñ duā ke sivā

koī suntā nahīñ ḳhudā ke sivā

koi chaara nahin dua ke siwa

koi sunta nahin KHuda ke siwa

be-ta.alluq zindagī achchhī nahīñ

zindagī kyā maut bhī achchhī nahīñ

be-talluq zindagi achchhi nahin

zindagi kya maut bhi achchhi nahin

bhulā.ī nahīñ sakeñgī ye bāteñ

tumheñ yaad ā.eñge ham yaad rakhnā

bhulai nahin ja sakengi ye baaten

tumhein yaad aaenge hum yaad rakhna

dil lagāo to lagāo dil se dil

dil-lagī dil-lagī achchhī nahīñ

dil lagao to lagao dil se dil

dil-lagi hi dil-lagi achchhi nahin

zindagī firdaus-e-gum-gashta ko saktī nahīñ

maut aatī hai ye manzil dikhāne ke liye

zindagi firdaus-e-gum-gashta ko pa sakti nahin

maut hi aati hai ye manzil dikhane ke liye

koī davā na de sake mashvara-e-duā diyā

chāragaroñ ne aur bhī dard dil baḌhā diyā

koi dawa na de sake mashwara-e-dua diya

chaaragaron ne aur bhi dard dil ka baDha diya

ham meñ thī na koī baat yaad na tum ko aa sake

tum ne hameñ bhulā diyā ham na tumheñ bhulā sake

hum hi mein thi na koi baat yaad na tum ko aa sake

tum ne hamein bhula diya hum na tumhein bhula sake

mirī majbūriyāñ kyā pūchhte ho

ki jiine ke liye majbūr huuñ maiñ

meri majburiyan kya puchhte ho

ki jine ke liye majbur hun main

haath rakh rakh ke vo siine pe kisī kahnā

dil se dard uThtā hai pahle ki jigar se pahle

hath rakh rakh ke wo sine pe kisi ka kahna

dil se dard uThta hai pahle ki jigar se pahle

ilāhī ek ġham-e-rozgār kyā kam thā

ki ishq bhej diyā jān-e-mubtalā ke liye

ilahi ek gham-e-rozgar kya kam tha

ki ishq bhej diya jaan-e-mubtala ke liye

ham se ye bār-e-lutf uThāyā na jā.egā

ehsāñ ye kījiye ki ye ehsāñ na kījiye

hum se ye bar-e-lutf uThaya na jaega

ehsan ye kijiye ki ye ehsan na kijiye

ab mujhe māneñ na māneñ ai 'hafīz'

mānte haiñ sab mire ustād ko

ab mujhe manen na manen ai 'hafiz'

mante hain sab mere ustad ko

o dil toḌ ke jaane vaale dil baat batātā

ab maiñ dil ko kyā samjhā.ūñ mujh ko bhī samjhātā

o dil toD ke jaane wale dil ki baat batata ja

ab main dil ko kya samjhaun mujh ko bhi samjhata ja

aane vaale jaane vaale har zamāne ke liye

aadmī mazdūr hai rāheñ banāne ke liye

aane wale jaane wale har zamane ke liye

aadmi mazdur hai rahen banane ke liye

jis ne is daur ke insān kiye haiñ paidā

vahī merā bhī ḳhudā ho mujhe manzūr nahīñ

jis ne is daur ke insan kiye hain paida

wahi mera bhi KHuda ho mujhe manzur nahin

ai 'hafīz' aah aah par āḳhir

kyā kaheñ dost vaah ke sivā

ai 'hafiz' aah aah par aaKHir

kya kahen dost wah wa ke siwa

haa.e koī davā karo haa.e koī duā karo

haa.e jigar meñ dard hai haa.e jigar ko kyā karūñ

hae koi dawa karo hae koi dua karo

hae jigar mein dard hai hae jigar ko kya karun

dil sabhī kuchh zabān par laayā

ik faqat arz-e-mudda.ā ke sivā

dil sabhi kuchh zaban par laya

ek faqat arz-e-muddaa ke siwa

tasavvur meñ bhī ab vo be-naqāb aate nahīñ mujh tak

qayāmat aa chukī hai log kahte haiñ shabāb aayā

tasawwur mein bhi ab wo be-naqab aate nahin mujh tak

qayamat aa chuki hai log kahte hain shabab aaya

mirā tajraba hai ki is zindagī meñ

pareshāniyāñ pareshāniyāñ haiñ

mera tajraba hai ki is zindagi mein

pareshaniyan hi pareshaniyan hain

nā-kāmi-e-ishq kāmyābī

donoñ hāsil ḳhāna-ḳharābī

na-kaami-e-ishq ya kaamyabi

donon ka hasil KHana-KHarabi

mujh se kyā ho sakā vafā ke sivā

mujh ko miltā bhī kyā sazā ke sivā

mujh se kya ho saka wafa ke siwa

mujh ko milta bhi kya saza ke siwa

ba-zāhir sādgī se muskurā kar dekhne vaalo

koī kam-baḳht nā-vāqif agar dīvāna ho jaa.e

ba-zahir sadgi se muskura kar dekhne walo

koi kam-baKHt na-waqif agar diwana ho jae

ḳhāmosh ho ga.iiñ jo umañgeñ shabāb

phir jur.at-e-gunāh na ham bhī chup rahe

KHamosh ho gain jo umangen shabab ki

phir jurat-e-gunah na ki hum bhi chup rahe

nāseh ko bulāo mirā īmān sambhāle

phir dekh liyā us ne sharārat nazar se

call for the priest, my faith is all askance

she has cast upon me a mischief laden glance

naseh ko bulao mera iman sambhaale

phir dekh liya us ne shararat ki nazar se

call for the priest, my faith is all askance

she has cast upon me a mischief laden glance

but-kade se chale ho kaabe ko

kyā milegā tumheñ ḳhudā ke sivā

but-kade se chale ho kabe ko

kya milega tumhein KHuda ke siwa

mire Duub jaane baa.is na pūchho

kināre se Takrā gayā thā safīna

mere Dub jaane ka bais na puchho

kinare se Takra gaya tha safina

vafā lāzmī thā ye natīja

sazā apne kiye rahā huuñ

wafa ka lazmi tha ye natija

saza apne kiye ki pa raha hun

phir de ke ḳhushī ham use nāshād kareñ kyuuñ

ġham se tabī.at hai agar shaad kisī

phir de ke KHushi hum use nashad karen kyun

gham hi se tabiat hai agar shad kisi ki

aane vaale kisī tūfān ronā ro kar

nā-ḳhudā ne mujhe sāhil pe Dubonā chāhā

aane wale kisi tufan ka rona ro kar

na-KHuda ne mujhe sahil pe Dubona chaha

aa gayā vo mujh ko lahad meñ utārne

ġhaflat zarā na mire ġhaflat-shi.ār ne

aa hi gaya wo mujh ko lahad mein utarne

ghaflat zara na ki mere ghaflat-shiar ne

kis muñh se kah rahe ho hameñ kuchh ġharaz nahīñ

kis muñh se tum ne va.ada kiyā thā nibāh

kis munh se kah rahe ho hamein kuchh gharaz nahin

kis munh se tum ne wada kiya tha nibah ka

haañ maiñ to liye phirtā huuñ ik sajda-e-betāb

un se bhī to pūchho vo ḳhudā haiñ ki nahīñ haiñ

han main to liye phirta hun ek sajda-e-betab

un se bhi to puchho wo KHuda hain ki nahin hain

ahbāb shikva kyā kījiye ḳhud zāhir o bātin ek nahīñ

lab uupar uupar hañste haiñ dil andar andar rotā hai

ahbab ka shikwa kya kijiye KHud zahir o baatin ek nahin

lab upar upar hanste hain dil andar andar rota hai

supurd-e-ḳhāk karnā thā mujh ko

to phir kaahe ko nahlāyā gayā huuñ

supurd-e-KHak hi karna tha mujh ko

to phir kahe ko nahlaya gaya hun

us sūrat ko dekhtā huuñ maiñ

merī sīrat vo dekhtā nahīñ

us ki surat ko dekhta hun main

meri sirat wo dekhta hi nahin

maiñ vo bastī huuñ ki yād-e-raftagāñ ke bhes meñ

dekhne aatī hai ab merī vīrānī mujhe

main wo basti hun ki yaad-e-raftagan ke bhes mein

dekhne aati hai ab meri hi virani mujhe

jaise vīrāne se Takrā ke palaTtī hai sadā

dil ke har goshe se aa.ī tirī āvāz mujhe

jaise virane se Takra ke palaTti hai sada

dil ke har goshe se aai teri aawaz mujhe

abhī mī.ād baaqī hai sitam

mohabbat sazā hai aur maiñ huuñ

abhi miad baqi hai sitam ki

mohabbat ki saza hai aur main hun

mohabbat karo aur nibāho to pūchhūñ

ye dushvāriyāñ haiñ ki āsāniyāñ haiñ

mohabbat karo aur nibaho to puchhun

ye dushwariyan hain ki aasaniyan hain
