Sher 1

maiñ ne māñgī thī ujāle faqat ek kiran

tum se ye kis ne kahā aag lagā jaa.e

merely a ray of light of you I did request

you have set this fire, pray at whose behest?

main ne mangi thi ujale ki faqat ek kiran

tum se ye kis ne kaha aag laga di jae

merely a ray of light of you I did request

you have set this fire, pray at whose behest?

 

Doha 6

pahle pahle pyaar sājan pahlī hai barsāt

oḌh ke leTī yaad tirī aur jaag ke kaaTī raat

pahle pahle pyar ki sajan pahli hai barsat

oDh ke leTi yaad teri aur jag ke kaTi raat

tum to shaan se nikle the le haath meñ merā haath

Dar kar duniyā vāloñ se kyuuñ chhoḌ diyā hai saath

tum to shan se nikle the le hath mein mera hath

Dar kar duniya walon se kyun chhoD diya hai sath

kab tak jaan bachā.e phuul pe os nanhā qatra

pattoñ bhī oT meñ ho to sūraj pal pal ḳhatra

kab tak jaan bachae phul pe os ka nanha qatra

patton ki bhi oT mein ho to suraj pal pal KHatra
