dekhī thī ek raat tirī zulf ḳhvāb meñ

phir jab talak jiyā maiñ pareshān rahā

dekhi thi ek raat teri zulf KHwab mein

phir jab talak jiya main pareshan hi raha

sau iid agar zamāne meñ laa.e falak va-lek

sau id agar zamane mein lae falak wa-lek

ghar se hamare mah-e-muharram na jaega

yārab us ke dil se sadā rakhiyo ġham ko duur

zaKHm ke lagte hi kya khul gae chhati ke kiwaD

aage ye KHana-e-dilchasp hawa dar na tha

sab kuchh paḌhāyā ham ko murdarris ne ishq ke

miltā hai jis se yaar na aisī paḌhā.ī baat

imārat dair o masjid banī hai iiñT o patthar se

dil-e-vīrāna kis chiiz se ta.amīr hotī hai

imarat dair o masjid ki bani hai inT o patthar se

dil-e-virana ki kis chiz se tamir hoti hai

kis tarah 'razā' na ho dhavāne zamāna

jab dil tirī baiThā ho badnām baġhal meñ

kis tarah 'raza' tu na ho dhawane zamana

jab dil sa teri baiTha ho badnam baghal mein

kisī ne aisā ḳhudā.ī-ḳharāb dekhā hai

chala hai kabe ko but-KHane se 'raza' yaro

kisi ne aisa KHudai-KHarab dekha hai

sunte to the 'razā' haiñ sab haiñ baḌe musalmāñ

par kufr meñ ziyāda nikle vo barahman se

sunte to the 'raza' hain sab hain baDe musalman

par kufr mein ziyaada nikle wo barahman se

aisā kisī se junūñ dast-o-garebāñ na ho

vo bhī usī garmī-e-bāzār ke liye

hum ko mili hai ishq se ek aah-e-soz-nak

wo bhi usi ki garmi-e-bazar ke liye

is chashm o dil ne kahnā na maanā tamām umr

KHusha ho kar butan kab aashiqon ko yaad karte hain

'raza' hairan hun main kis baat par hai utna bhola tu

sau ġhamze ke rakhtā hai nigahbān pas-o-pesh

aatā hai akelā par akelā nahīñ aatā

sau ghamze ke rakhta hai nigahban pas-o-pesh

jis tarah ham rahe duniyā meñ haiñ us tarah 'razā'

shaiḳh but-ḳhāne meñ ka.abe meñ barahman na rahā

jis tarah hum rahe duniya mein hain us tarah 'raza'

liyā kis ghar base ne aah aa kar ḳhāna pahlū meñ

na kaba hai yahan mere na hai but-KHana pahlu mein

liya kis ghar base ne aah aa kar KHana pahlu mein
