vo vaqt jahāz thā kartā lihāz kyā

maiñ dostoñ se haath milāne meñ rah gayā

wo waqt ka jahaz tha karta lihaz kya

main doston se hath milane mein rah gaya

shīsha TuuTe ġhul mach jaa.e

dil TuuTe āvāz na aa.e

shisha TuTe ghul mach jae

dil TuTe aawaz na aae

ik ajnabī ke haath meñ de kar hamārā haath

lo saath chhoḌne lagā āḳhir ye saal bhī

ek ajnabi ke hath mein de kar hamara hath

lo sath chhoDne laga aaKHir ye sal bhi

raat ko raat kah diyā maiñ ne

sunte baukhlā ga.ī duniyā

raat ko raat kah diya main ne

sunte hi baukhla gai duniya

ye bhī to sochiye kabhī tanhā.ī meñ zarā

duniyā se ham ne kyā liyā duniyā ko kyā diyā

ye bhi to sochiye kabhi tanhai mein zara

duniya se hum ne kya liya duniya ko kya diya

bad-tar hai maut se bhī ġhulāmī zindagī

mar jā.iyo magar ye gavārā na kījiyo

bad-tar hai maut se bhi ghulami ki zindagi

mar jaiyo magar ye gawara na kijiyo

ye hunar bhī baḌā zarūrī hai

kitnā jhuk kar kise salām karo

ye hunar bhi baDa zaruri hai

kitna jhuk kar kise salam karo

sirf zabāñ naqqālī se baat na ban pā.egī 'hafīz'

dil par kaarī choT lage to 'mīr' lahja aa.e hai

sirf zaban ki naqqali se baat na ban paegi 'hafiz'

dil par kari choT lage to 'mir' ka lahja aae hai

har sahārā be-amal ke vāste be-kār hai

aañkh khole na jab koī ujālā kyā kare

har sahaara be-amal ke waste be-kar hai

aankh hi khole na jab koi ujala kya kare

rasā hoñ na hoñ naale ye nāloñ muqaddar hai

'hafīz' aañsū bahā kar to halkā kar liyā maiñ ne

rasa hon ya na hon nale ye nalon ka muqaddar hai

'hafiz' aansu baha kar ji to halka kar liya main ne

kabhī kabhī hameñ duniyā hasīn lagtī thī

kabhī kabhī tirī āñkhoñ meñ pyaar dekhte the

kabhi kabhi hamein duniya hasin lagti thi

kabhi kabhi teri aankhon mein pyar dekhte the

ab khul ke kaho baat to kuchh baat banegī

ye daur-e-ishārāt-o-kināyāt nahīñ hai

ab khul ke kaho baat to kuchh baat banegi

ye daur-e-ishaaraat-o-kinayat nahin hai

mai-ḳhāne samt na dekho

jaane kaun nazar aa jaa.e

mai-KHane ki samt na dekho

jaane kaun nazar aa jae

kyā jaane kyā sabab hai ki chāhtā hai aaj

rote jaa.eñ sāmne tum ko biThā ke ham

kya jaane kya sabab hai ki ji chahta hai aaj

rote hi jaen samne tum ko biTha ke hum

abhī se hosh uḌe maslahat-pasandoñ ke

abhi se hosh uDe maslahat-pasandon ke

abhi main bazm mein aaya abhi bola kahan bola

shaiḳh qātil ko masīhā kah ga.e

mohtaram baat ko jhuTlā.eñ kyā

shaiKH qatil ko masiha kah gae

mohtaram ki baat ko jhuTlaen kya

haa.e vo naġhma jis muġhannī

gaatā jaa.e rotā jaa.e

hae wo naghma jis ka mughanni

gata jae rota jae

rañg āñkhoñ ke liye hai dimāġhoñ ke liye

phuul ko haath lagāne zarūrat kyā hai

rang aankhon ke liye bu hai dimaghon ke liye

phul ko hath lagane ki zarurat kya hai

mohabbat chīḳh bhī ḳhāmoshī bhī naġhma bhī na.ara bhī

ye ik mazmūn hai kitne unvānoñ se vābasta

mohabbat chiKH bhi KHamoshi bhi naghma bhi nara bhi

ye ek mazmun hai kitne hi unwanon se wabasta
