Waheed Quraishi

1925 - 2009 | Lahore, Pakistan

ham aaj rāh-e-tamannā meñ ko haar aa.e

na dard-o-ġham bharosā rahā na duniyā

hum aaj rah-e-tamanna mein ji ko haar aae

na dard-o-gham ka bharosa raha na duniya ka

pahuñch ga.e haiñ ham aise dayār meñ ki 'vahīd'

jahāñ gunāh to lāzim hai nekiyāñ barbād

pahunch gae hain hum aise dayar mein ki 'wahid'

jahan gunah to lazim hai nekiyan barbaad

'vahīd' kār-e-siyāsat hai kār-e-be-kārāñ

zabāñ ko rok lo qaa.em rahe adab vaqār

'wahid' kar-e-siyasat hai kar-e-be-karan

zaban ko rok lo qaem rahe adab ka waqar
