ai mohabbat tire anjām pe ronā aayā

jaane kyuuñ aaj tire naam pe ronā aayā

Love your sad conclusion makes me weep

Wonder why your mention makes me weep

ai mohabbat tere anjam pe rona aaya

jaane kyun aaj tere nam pe rona aaya

Love your sad conclusion makes me weep

Wonder why your mention makes me weep

ab to ḳhushī ġham hai na ġham ḳhushī mujhe

be-his banā chukī hai bahut zindagī mujhe

ab to KHushi ka gham hai na gham ki KHushi mujhe

be-his bana chuki hai bahut zindagi mujhe

kaise kah duuñ ki mulāqāt nahīñ hotī hai

roz milte haiñ magar baat nahīñ hotī hai

kaise kah dun ki mulaqat nahin hoti hai

roz milte hain magar baat nahin hoti hai

jaane vaale se mulāqāt na hone paa.ī

dil dil meñ rahī baat na hone paa.ī

jaane wale se mulaqat na hone pai

dil ki dil mein hi rahi baat na hone pai

un zikr un tamannā un yaad

vaqt kitnā qīmtī hai aaj kal

her mention, her yearning her memory

O how precious time now seems to me

un ka zikr un ki tamanna un ki yaad

waqt kitna qimti hai aaj kal

her mention, her yearning her memory

O how precious time now seems to me

unheñ apne dil ḳhabreñ mire dil se mil rahī haiñ

maiñ jo un se ruuTh jā.ūñ to payām tak na pahuñche

unhen apne dil ki KHabren mere dil se mil rahi hain

main jo un se ruTh jaun to payam tak na pahunche

kabhī yak-ba-yak tavajjoh kabhī daf.atan taġhāful

mujhe aazmā rahā hai koī ruḳh badal badal kar

kabhi yak-ba-yak tawajjoh kabhi dafatan taghaful

mujhe aazma raha hai koi ruKH badal badal kar

mere ham-nafas mere ham-navā mujhe dost ban ke daġhā na de

maiñ huuñ dard-e-ishq se jāñ-ba-lab mujhe zindagī duā na de

My companion, my intimate, be not a friend and yet betray

The pain of love is fatal now, for my life please do not pray

mere ham-nafas mere ham-nawa mujhe dost ban ke dagha na de

main hun dard-e-ishq se jaan-ba-lab mujhe zindagi ki dua na de

My companion, my intimate, be not a friend and yet betray

The pain of love is fatal now, for my life please do not pray

mujhe dost kahne vaale zarā dostī nibhā de

ye mutālba hai haq koī iltijā nahīñ hai

mujhe dost kahne wale zara dosti nibha de

ye mutalba hai haq ka koi iltija nahin hai

yuuñ to har shaam umīdoñ meñ guzar jaatī hai

aaj kuchh baat hai jo shaam pe ronā aayā

Every evening was, by hope, sustained

This evening's desperation makes me weep

yun to har sham umidon mein guzar jati hai

aaj kuchh baat hai jo sham pe rona aaya

Every evening was, by hope, sustained

This evening's desperation makes me weep

chāhiye ḳhud pe yaqīn-e-kāmil

hausla kis baḌhātā hai koī

chahiye KHud pe yaqin-e-kaamil

hausla kis ka baDhata hai koi

jab huā zikr zamāne meñ mohabbat 'shakīl'

mujh ko apne dil-e-nākām pe ronā aayā

Whenever talk of happiness I hear

My failure and frustration makes me weep

jab hua zikr zamane mein mohabbat ka 'shakil'

mujh ko apne dil-e-nakaam pe rona aaya

Whenever talk of happiness I hear

My failure and frustration makes me weep

mujhe to qaid-e-mohabbat aziiz thī lekin

kisī ne mujh ko giraftār kar ke chhoḌ diyā

mujhe to qaid-e-mohabbat aziz thi lekin

kisi ne mujh ko giraftar kar ke chhoD diya

kāñToñ se guzar jaatā huuñ dāman ko bachā kar

phūloñ siyāsat se maiñ begāna nahīñ huuñ

kanTon se guzar jata hun daman ko bacha kar

phulon ki siyasat se main begana nahin hun

tum phir usī adā se añgḌā.ī le ke hañs do

aa jā.egā palaT kar guzrā huā zamāna

tum phir usi ada se angDai le ke hans do

aa jaega palaT kar guzra hua zamana

mohabbat meñ milte haiñ shikāyat ke maze paiham

mohabbat jitnī baḌhtī hai shikāyat hotī jaatī hai

mohabbat hi mein milte hain shikayat ke maze paiham

mohabbat jitni baDhti hai shikayat hoti jati hai

ye adā-e-be-niyāzī tujhe bevafā mubārak

magar aisī be-ruḳhī kyā ki salām tak na pahuñche

ye ada-e-be-niyazi tujhe bewafa mubarak

magar aisi be-ruKHi kya ki salam tak na pahunche

na.ī sub.h par nazar hai magar aah ye bhī Dar hai

ye sahar bhī rafta rafta kahīñ shaam tak na pahuñche

nai subh par nazar hai magar aah ye bhi Dar hai

ye sahar bhi rafta rafta kahin sham tak na pahunche

tark-e-mai samajh ise nāseh

itnī hai ki nahīñ jaatī

tark-e-mai hi samajh ise naseh

itni pi hai ki pi nahin jati

mujhe chhoḌ de mere haal par tirā kyā bharosa hai chāragar

ye tirī navāzish-e-muḳhtasar merā dard aur baḌhā na de

Leave me to my present state, I do not trust your medicine

Your mercy minor though may be,might increase my pain today

mujhe chhoD de mere haal par tera kya bharosa hai chaaragar

ye teri nawazish-e-muKHtasar mera dard aur baDha na de

Leave me to my present state, I do not trust your medicine

Your mercy minor though may be,might increase my pain today

vahī kārvāñ vahī rāste vahī zindagī vahī marhale

magar apne apne maqām par kabhī tum nahīñ kabhī ham nahīñ

wahi karwan wahi raste wahi zindagi wahi marhale

magar apne apne maqam par kabhi tum nahin kabhi hum nahin

bhej tasvīr apnī un ko ye likh kar 'shakīl'

aap marzī hai chāhe jis nazar se dekhiye

bhej di taswir apni un ko ye likh kar 'shakil'

aap ki marzi hai chahe jis nazar se dekhiye

koī ai 'shakīl' pūchhe ye junūñ nahīñ to kyā hai

ki usī ke ho ga.e ham jo na ho sakā hamārā

But for madness what is this, can anyone divine?

I am hers forevermore, who never can be mine

koi ai 'shakil' puchhe ye junun nahin to kya hai

ki usi ke ho gae hum jo na ho saka hamara

But for madness what is this, can anyone divine?

I am hers forevermore, who never can be mine

buz-dilī hogī charāġhoñ ko dikhānā āñkheñ

abr chhaT jaa.e to sūraj se milānā āñkheñ

would be cowardice to stare down at the flame

let the clouds disperse then look upon the sun

buz-dili hogi charaghon ko dikhana aankhen

abr chhaT jae to suraj se milana aankhen

would be cowardice to stare down at the flame

let the clouds disperse then look upon the sun

kafi hai mere dil ki tasalli ko yahi baat

aap aa na sake aap ka paigham to aaya

mirī zindagī pe na muskurā mujhe zindagī alam nahīñ

jise tere ġham se ho vāsta vo ḳhizāñ bahār se kam nahīñ

meri zindagi pe na muskura mujhe zindagi ka alam nahin

jise tere gham se ho wasta wo KHizan bahaar se kam nahin

kyā hasīñ ḳhvāb mohabbat ne dikhāyā thā hameñ

khul ga.ī aañkh to tābīr pe ronā aayā

kya hasin KHwab mohabbat ne dikhaya tha hamein

khul gai aankh to tabir pe rona aaya

maiñ nazar se rahā thā to ye dil ne bad-duā

tirā haath zindagī bhar kabhī jaam tak na pahuñche

main nazar se pi raha tha to ye dil ne bad-dua di

tera hath zindagi bhar kabhi jam tak na pahunche

mushkil thā kuchh to ishq baazī ko jītnā

kuchh jītne ke ḳhauf se haare chale ga.e

was difficult to win the game of love to a degree

and so I went on losing being afraid of victory

mushkil tha kuchh to ishq ki bazi ko jitna

kuchh jitne ke KHauf se haare chale gae

was difficult to win the game of love to a degree

and so I went on losing being afraid of victory

kal raat zindagī se mulāqāt ho ga.ī

lab thartharā rahe the magar baat ho ga.ī

kal raat zindagi se mulaqat ho gai

lab tharthara rahe the magar baat ho gai

merā azm itnā buland hai ki parā.e sholoñ Dar nahīñ

mujhe ḳhauf ātish-e-gul se hai ye kahīñ chaman ko jalā na de

My confidence in self is strong, I'm unafraid of foreign flames

I'm scared those sparks may ignite, that in the blossom's bosom lay

mera azm itna buland hai ki parae sholon ka Dar nahin

mujhe KHauf aatish-e-gul se hai ye kahin chaman ko jala na de

My confidence in self is strong, I'm unafraid of foreign flames

I'm scared those sparks may ignite, that in the blossom's bosom lay

vo ham se ḳhafā haiñ ham un se ḳhafā haiñ

magar baat karne ko chāhtā hai

wo hum se KHafa hain hum un se KHafa hain

magar baat karne ko ji chahta hai

be-piye shaiḳh farishta thā magar

be-piye shaiKH farishta tha magar

pi ke insan hua jata hai

dil barbādiyoñ pe nāzāñ huuñ

fat.h kar shikast khaa.ī hai

fath pa kar shikast khai hai

shauq se vaa.iz are kyā baat hai Dar

dozaḳh tire qabze meñ hai jannat tire ghar

pi shauq se waiz are kya baat hai Dar ki

dozaKH tere qabze mein hai jannat tere ghar ki

kis se kar māñgiye dard-e-mohabbat davā

chāra-gar ab ḳhud bechāre nazar aane lage

kis se ja kar mangiye dard-e-mohabbat ki dawa

chaara-gar ab KHud hi bechaare nazar aane lage

ġham duniyā rahe ābād 'shakīl'

muflisī meñ koī jāgīr to hai

duniyā agar yahī hai to duniyā se bach ke chal

lamhe udas udas fazaen ghuTi ghuTi

duniya agar yahi hai to duniya se bach ke chal

vo ham se duur hote rahe haiñ

bahut maġhrūr hote rahe haiñ

wo hum se dur hote ja rahe hain

bahut maghrur hote ja rahe hain

khul gayā un aarzū meñ ye raaz

ziist apnī nahīñ parā.ī hai

khul gaya un ki aarzu mein ye raaz

zist apni nahin parai hai

mujhe aa gayā yaqīñ ki yahī hai merī manzil

I then came to believe it was, my goal, my destiny

When someone in my path called out to me repeatedly

mujhe aa gaya yaqin sa ki yahi hai meri manzil

sar-e-rah jab kisi ne mujhe dafatan pukara

I then came to believe it was, my goal, my destiny

When someone in my path called out to me repeatedly

duniyā meñ koī dost mire kaam to aayā

apnon ne nazar pheri to dil tu ne diya sath

duniya mein koi dost mere kaam to aaya
