vahī sulūk zamāne ne mere saath kiyā

kiyā thā jaisā musharraf ne be-nazīr ke saath

wahi suluk zamane ne mere sath kiya

kiya tha jaisa musharraf ne be-nazir ke sath

is zamāne ajab tishna-labī hai ai 'zafar'

pyaas us sirf bujhtī hai hamāre ḳhuun se

is zamane ki ajab tishna-labi hai ai 'zafar'

pyas us ki sirf bujhti hai hamare KHun se

shauharoñ se bībayāñ laḌtī haiñ chhāpa-mār jañg

rābta un bhī kyā kashmīr vaadī se hai

shauharon se bibayan laDti hain chhapa-mar jang

rabta un ka bhi kya kashmir ki wadi se hai

nigāhoñ meñ jo manzar ho vahī sab kuchh nahīñ hotā

bahut kuchh aur bhī pyāre pas-e-dīvār hotā hai

nigahon mein jo manzar ho wahi sab kuchh nahin hota

bahut kuchh aur bhi pyare pas-e-diwar hota hai
