aap Thahre haiñ to Thahrā hai nizām-e-ālam

aap guzre haiñ to ik mauj-e-ravāñ guzrī hai

aap Thahre hain to Thahra hai nizam-e-alam

aap guzre hain to ek mauj-e-rawan guzri hai

aise lamhe bhī guzāre haiñ tirī furqat meñ

jab tirī yaad bhī is dil pe girāñ guzrī hai

aise lamhe bhi guzare hain teri furqat mein

jab teri yaad bhi is dil pe giran guzri hai

apnī vus.at meñ kho chukā huuñ maiñ

raah dikhlā sako to aa jaao

apni wusat mein kho chuka hun main

rah dikhla sako to aa jao

bole vo kuchh aisī be-ruḳhī se

dil meñ rahā savāl apnā

bole wo kuchh aisi be-ruKHi se

dil hi mein raha sawal apna

chalo mai-kade meñ baserā kar lo

na aanā paḌegā na jaanā paḌegā

chalo mai-kade mein basera hi kar lo

na aana paDega na jaana paDega

dil ne paayā qarār pahlū meñ

ġham-gusāro bahut udaas huuñ maiñ

aaj bahlā sako to aa jaao

gham-gusaro bahut udas hun main

aaj bahla sako to aa jao

hameñ ḳhabar hai vo mehmān ek raat hai

hamāre paas bhī sāmān ek raat hai

hamare pas bhi saman ek raat ka hai

husn jalva dikhā gayā apnā

ishq baiThā rahā udaas kahīñ

husn jalwa dikha gaya apna

ishq baiTha raha udas kahin

jis din se bhulā diyā hai ne

aatā nahīñ ḳhayāl apnā

jis din se bhula diya hai tu ne

aata hi nahin KHayal apna

kabhī jigar pe kabhī dil pe choT paḌtī hai

'saif' andāz-e-bayāñ rañg badal detā hai

varna duniyā meñ koī baat na.ī baat nahīñ

'saif' andaz-e-bayan rang badal deta hai

warna duniya mein koi baat nai baat nahin

'saif' kar bhī tishnagī na ga.ī

ab ke barsāt aur kuchh thī

'saif' pi kar bhi tishnagi na gai

ab ke barsat aur hi kuchh thi

shāyad tumhāre saath bhī vāpas na aa sakeñ

vo valvale jo saath tumhāre chale ga.e

shayad tumhaare sath bhi wapas na aa saken

wo walwale jo sath tumhaare chale gae

tum ne diwana banaya mujh ko

log afsana banaenge tumhein

tumhāre ba.ad ḳhudā jaane kyā huā dil ko

kisī se rabt baḌhāne hausla na huā

tumhaare baad KHuda jaane kya hua dil ko

kisi se rabt baDhane ka hausla na hua

us musāfir naqāhat Thikāna kyā hai

sañg-e-manzil jise dīvār nazar aane lage

us musafir ki naqahat ka Thikana kya hai

sang-e-manzil jise diwar nazar aane lage

ye ālām-e-hastī ye daur-e-zamāna

to kyā ab tumheñ bhuul jaanā paḌegā

ye aalam-e-hasti ye daur-e-zamana

to kya ab tumhein bhul jaana paDega

raat kaTtī nazar nahīñ aatī

zindagi kis tarah kaTegi 'saif'

raat kaTti nazar nahin aati
