māñgne vāloñ ko kyā izzat o rusvā.ī se

dene vāloñ amīrī bharam khultā hai

mangne walon ko kya izzat o ruswai se

dene walon ki amiri ka bharam khulta hai

jo sunñā chāho to bol uTTheñge añdhere bhī

na sunñā chāho to dil sadā sunā.ī na de

jo sunna chaho to bol uTThenge andhere bhi

na sunna chaho to dil ki sada sunai na de

hazāroñ saal safar kar ke phir vahīñ pahuñche

bahut zamāna huā thā hameñ zamīñ se chale

hazaron sal safar kar ke phir wahin pahunche

bahut zamana hua tha hamein zamin se chale

ġhazal ban ke utar baat mukammal ho jaa.e

muntazir dil munājāt mukammal ho jaa.e

Prayers of a longing heart would then be fulfilled.

umr bhar milte rahe phir bhī na milne paa.e

is tarah mil ki mulāqāt mukammal ho jaa.e

is tarah mil ki mulaqat mukammal ho jae
