anjām-e-vafā ye hai jis ne bhī mohabbat

marne duā māñgī jiine sazā paa.ī

anjam-e-wafa ye hai jis ne bhi mohabbat ki

marne ki dua mangi jine ki saza pai

diyā ḳhāmosh hai lekin kisī dil to jaltā hai

chale aao jahāñ tak raushnī ma.alūm hotī hai

the lamp's extinguised but someone's heart

diya KHamosh hai lekin kisi ka dil to jalta hai

chale aao jahan tak raushni malum hoti hai

the lamp's extinguised but someone's heart

hazār sham.a farozāñ ho raushnī ke liye

hazar shama farozan ho raushni ke liye

qadam mai-ḳhāna meñ rakhnā bhī kār-e-puḳhta-kārāñ hai

sarak kar aa gain zulfen jo in maKHmur aankhon tak

main ye samjha ki mai-KHane pe badli chhai jati hai

maiñ abhī se kis tarah un ko bevafā kahūñ

manziloñ baat hai rāste meñ kyā kahūñ

main abhi se kis tarah un ko bewafa kahun

manzilon ki baat hai raste mein kya kahun

gunāhgār to rahmat ko muñh dikhā na sakā

jo be-gunāh thā vo bhī nazar milā na sakā

gunahgar to rahmat ko munh dikha na saka

jo be-gunah tha wo bhi nazar mila na saka

merī āñkhoñ meñ haiñ aañsū tere dāman meñ bahār

gul banā saktā hai shabnam banā saktā huuñ maiñ

meri aankhon mein hain aansu tere daman mein bahaar

gul bana sakta hai tu shabnam bana sakta hun main

ek rishta bhī mohabbat agar TuuT gayā
