Prominent Contemporary of Akbar Allahabadi known for his oft-quoted sher 'Aagah apni maut se koi bashar nahin…'

āgāh apnī maut se koī bashar nahīñ

sāmān sau baras hai pal ḳhabar nahīñ

the time of his death, man cannot foresee

uncertain of the morrow yet, plans for a century

aagah apni maut se koi bashar nahin

saman sau baras ka hai pal ki KHabar nahin

the time of his death, man cannot foresee

uncertain of the morrow yet, plans for a century

apnā haal tak na khulā mujh ko ta-ba-marg

maiñ kaun huuñ kahāñ se chalā thā kahāñ gayā

apna hi haal tak na khula mujh ko ta-ba-marg

main kaun hun kahan se chala tha kahan gaya

kahā āshiq se vāqif ho to farmāyā nahīñ vāqif

magar haañ is taraf se ek nā-mahram nikaltā hai

kaha aashiq se waqif ho to farmaya nahin waqif

magar han is taraf se ek na-mahram nikalta hai
