'mus.hafī' ham to ye samjhe the ki hogā koī zaḳhm

tere dil meñ to bahut kaam rafū niklā

'mushafi' hum to ye samjhe the ki hoga koi zaKHm

tere dil mein to bahut kaam rafu ka nikla

log kahte haiñ mohabbat meñ asar hotā hai

kaun se shahr meñ hotā hai kidhar hotā hai

people say

where does this happen someone tell me where

log kahte hain mohabbat mein asar hota hai

kaun se shahr mein hota hai kidhar hota hai

people say

where does this happen someone tell me where

ab mirī baat jo maane to na le ishq naam

ne dukh ai dil-e-nākām bahut paayā

ab meri baat jo mane to na le ishq ka nam

tu ne dukh ai dil-e-nakaam bahut sa paya

baal apne baḌhāte haiñ kis vāste dīvāne

kyā shahr-e-mohabbat meñ hajjām nahīñ hotā

baal apne baDhate hain kis waste diwane

kya shahr-e-mohabbat mein hajjam nahin hota

hairāñ huuñ is qadar ki shab-e-vasl bhī mujhe

sāmne hai aur tirā intizār hai

hairan hun is qadar ki shab-e-wasl bhi mujhe

tu samne hai aur tera intizar hai

āstīñ us ne jo kuhnī tak chaḌhā.ī vaqt-e-sub.h

aa rahī saare badan be-hijābī haath meñ

aastin us ne jo kuhni tak chaDhai waqt-e-subh

aa rahi sare badan ki be-hijabi hath mein

jo milā us ne bevafā.ī

kuchh ajab rañg hai zamāne

jo mila us ne bewafai ki

kuchh ajab rang hai zamane ka

āñkhoñ ko phoḌ Dālūñ dil ko toḌ Dālūñ

ishq pakaḌ kar gardan maroḌ Dālūñ

aankhon ko phoD Dalun ya dil ko toD Dalun

ya ishq ki pakaD kar gardan maroD Dalun

eid ab ke bhī ga.ī yūñhī kisī ne na kahā

ki tire yaar ko ham tujh se milā dete haiñ

eid ab ke bhi gai yunhi kisi ne na kaha

ki tere yar ko hum tujh se mila dete hain

ik dard-e-mohabbat hai ki jaatā nahīñ varna

jis dard DhūñDe koī duniyā meñ davā hai

ek dard-e-mohabbat hai ki jata nahin warna

jis dard ki DhunDe koi duniya mein dawa hai

hasrat pe us musāfir-e-be-kas roiye

jo thak gayā ho baiTh ke manzil ke sāmne

hasrat pe us musafir-e-be-kas ki roiye

jo thak gaya ho baiTh ke manzil ke samne

va.adoñ pe har roz mirī jaan na Taalo

hai eid din ab to gale ham ko lagā lo

wadon hi pe har roz meri jaan na Talo

hai eid ka din ab to gale hum ko laga lo

āsāñ nahīñ dariyā-e-mohabbat se guzarnā

yaañ nuuh kashtī ko bhī tūfān Dar hai

aasan nahin dariya-e-mohabbat se guzarna

yan nuh ki kashti ko bhi tufan ka Dar hai

dekh kar ham ko na parde meñ chhup jaayā kar

ham to apne haiñ miyāñ ġhair se sharmāyā kar

dekh kar hum ko na parde mein tu chhup jaya kar

hum to apne hain miyan ghair se sharmaya kar

ai 'mus.hafī' in se mohabbat na kījiyo

zālim ġhazab hotī haiñ ye dillī vāliyāñ

ai 'mushafi' tu in se mohabbat na kijiyo

zalim ghazab hi hoti hain ye dilli waliyan

chheḌ mat har dam na ā.īna dikhā

apnī sūrat se ḳhafā baiThe haiñ ham

chheD mat har dam na aaina dikha

apni surat se KHafa baiThe hain hum

hai eid din aaj to lag jaao gale se

jaate ho kahāñ jaan mirī aa ke muqābil

hai eid ka din aaj to lag jao gale se

jate ho kahan jaan meri aa ke muqabil

eid aa ke mire ko jalāve afsos

jis ke aane ḳhushī ho vo na aave afsos

eid tu aa ke mere ji ko jalawe afsos

jis ke aane ki KHushi ho wo na aawe afsos

abhī āġhāz-e-mohabbat hai kuchh is anjām

tujh ko ma.alūm hai ai dīda-e-nam kyā hogā

abhi aaghaz-e-mohabbat hai kuchh is ka anjam

tujh ko malum hai ai dida-e-nam kya hoga

allāh-re tere silsila-e-zulf kashish

jaatā hai udhar khiñchā kā.enāt

allah-re tere silsila-e-zulf ki kashish

jata hai ji udhar hi khincha kaenat ka

ai kaash koī sham.a ke le ke mujhe paas

ye baat kahe us se ki parvāna hai ye bhī

ai kash koi shama ke le ja ke mujhe pas

ye baat kahe us se ki parwana hai ye bhi

ik din to lipaT jaa.e tasavvur se tere

ye bhī dil-e-nāmard ko jur.at nahīñ miltī

ek din to lipaT jae tasawwur hi se tere

ye bhi dil-e-namard ko jurat nahin milti

āġhosh hasrat ko bas dil meñ māruñgā

ab haath tirī ḳhātir phailā.ūñ to kuchh kahnā

aaghosh ki hasrat ko bas dil hi mein marunga

ab hath teri KHatir phailaun to kuchh kahna

ḳhudā rakkhe zabāñ ham ne sunī hai 'mīr' o 'mirzā'

kaheñ kis muñh se ham ai 'mus.hafī' urdu hamārī hai

KHuda rakkhe zaban hum ne suni hai 'mir' o 'mirza' ki

kahen kis munh se hum ai 'mushafi' urdu hamari hai

is havā meñ kar rahe haiñ ham tirā intizār

aa kahīñ jaldī se saaqī shīsha o sāġhar samet

is hawa mein kar rahe hain hum tera hi intizar

aa kahin jaldi se saqi shisha o saghar samet

un ko bhī tire ishq ne be-parda phirāyā

jo parda-nashīñ aurteñ rusvā na huiiñ thiiñ

un ko bhi tere ishq ne be-parda phiraya

jo parda-nashin aurten ruswa na huin thin

aadmī se aadmī jab na hājat ho ravā

kyuuñ ḳhudā kare itnī na phir yaad aadmī

aadmi se aadmi ki jab na hajat ho rawa

kyun KHuda hi ki kare itni na phir yaad aadmi

dillī meñ apnā thā jo kuchh asbāb rah gayā

ik dil ko le ke aa.e haiñ us sarzamīñ se ham

dilli mein apna tha jo kuchh asbab rah gaya

ek dil ko le ke aae hain us sarzamin se hum

āsmāñ ko nishāna karte haiñ

tiir rakhte haiñ jab kamān meñ ham

aasman ko nishana karte hain

tir rakhte hain jab kaman mein hum

is vāste furqat meñ jiitā mujhe rakkhā hai

ya.anī maiñ tirī sūrat jab yaad karūñ ro.uuñ

is waste furqat mein jita mujhe rakkha hai

yani main teri surat jab yaad karun roun

kahiye jo jhuuT to ham hote haiñ kah ke rusvā

sach kahiye to zamāna yaaro nahīñ hai sach

kahiye jo jhuT to hum hote hain kah ke ruswa

sach kahiye to zamana yaro nahin hai sach ka

sādgī dekh ki bose tama.a rakhtā huuñ

jin laboñ se ki mayassar nahīñ dushnām mujhe

sadgi dekh ki bose ki tama rakhta hun

jin labon se ki mayassar nahin dushnam mujhe

mausam-e-holī hai din aa.e haiñ rañg aur raag ke

ham se tum kuchh māñgne aao bahāne phaag ke

mausam-e-holi hai din aae hain rang aur rag ke

hum se tum kuchh mangne aao bahane phag ke

aadhī raat aa.e tire paas ye kis hai jigar

chauñk mat itnā ki ai hosh-rubā ham haiñ

aadhi raat aae tere pas ye kis ka hai jigar

chaunk mat itna ki ai hosh-ruba hum hi hain

tire kūche har bahāne mujhe din se raat karnā

kabhī is se baat karnā kabhī us se baat karnā

tere kuche har bahane mujhe din se raat karna

kabhi is se baat karna kabhi us se baat karna

ab ḳhudā maġhfirat kare us

'mīr' marhūm thā ajab koī

ab KHuda maghfirat kare us ki

'mir' marhum tha ajab koi

apnī ġharaz ko aa.e the vo raat 'mus.hafī'

le kar mirī baġhal se mirā dil ravāñ hue

apni gharaz ko aae the wo raat 'mushafi'

le kar meri baghal se mera dil rawan hue

is rañg se apne ghar na jaanā

dāman tirā ḳhuuñ meñ tar bahut hai

is rang se apne ghar na jaana

daman tera KHun mein tar bahut hai

kūcha-e-zulf meñ phirtā huuñ bhaTaktā kab

shab-e-tārīk hai aur miltī nahīñ raah kahīñ

kucha-e-zulf mein phirta hun bhaTakta kab ka

shab-e-tarik hai aur milti nahin rah kahin

aap har dam jo ye kahte haiñ ki kyuuñ hai khaḌā

dil tumheñ de ke maiñ kyā baiThā rahūñ aise

aap har dam jo ye kahte hain ki tu kyun hai khaDa

dil tumhein de ke main kya baiTha rahun aise ji

chāhūñgā maiñ tum ko jo mujhe chāhoge tum bhī

hotī hai mohabbat to mohabbat se ziyāda

chahunga main tum ko jo mujhe chahoge tum bhi

hoti hai mohabbat to mohabbat se ziyaada

yuuñ to hote haiñ mohabbat meñ junūñ ke āsār

aur kuchh log bhī dīvāna banā dete haiñ

yun to hote hain mohabbat mein junun ke aasar

aur kuchh log bhi diwana bana dete hain

meñ hai itne bose liije ki aaj

mahr us ke vahāñ se uTh jaave

ji mein hai itne bose lije ki aaj

mahr us ke wahan se uTh jawe

ai ishq jahāñ hai yaar merā

mujh ko bhī usī jagah le chal

ai ishq jahan hai yar mera

mujh ko bhi usi jagah tu le chal

aatā nahīñ samajh meñ ki kahte haiñ kis ko ishq

ik purze par ye harf judā likh rakheñge ham

aata nahin samajh mein ki kahte hain kis ko ishq

ek purze par ye harf juda likh rakhenge hum

kyā kyā badan-e-sāf nazar aate haiñ ham ko

kyā kyā shikam o naaf nazar aate haiñ ham ko

kya kya badan-e-saf nazar aate hain hum ko

kya kya shikam o naf nazar aate hain hum ko

aalam ko ik halāk kiyā us ne 'mus.hafī'

duniyā meñ is qadar bhī koī ḳhūb-rū na ho

aalam ko ek halak kiya us ne 'mushafi'

duniya mein is qadar bhi koi KHub-ru na ho

ek naale pe hai ma.āsh apnī

ham ġharīboñ hai yahī merāj

ek nale pe hai maash apni

hum gharibon ki hai yahi meraj

aa.ī jo rūh-e-lailā ziyārat ko qais

ishq ne qanāt ba-gard-e-mazār bāñdh

aai jo ruh-e-laila ziyarat ko qais ki

di ishq ne qanat ba-gard-e-mazar bandh

yā-rab kabhī vo din ho ki ḳhalvat meñ vo sanam

khulvā.e apne band-e-qabā mere haath se

ya-rab kabhi wo din ho ki KHalwat mein wo sanam

khulwae apne band-e-qaba mere hath se
