saare jahāñ se achchhā hindostāñ hamārā

ham bulbuleñ haiñ is ye gulsitāñ hamārā

sare jahan se achchha hindostan hamara

hum bulbulen hain is ki ye gulsitan hamara

Allama Iqbal

dil se niklegī na mar kar bhī vatan ulfat

merī miTTī se bhī ḳhushbū-e-vafā aa.egī

dil se niklegi na mar kar bhi watan ki ulfat

meri miTTi se bhi KHushbu-e-wafa aaegi

Lal Chand Falak

lahū vatan ke shahīdoñ rañg laayā hai

uchhal rahā hai zamāne meñ nām-e-āzādī

lahu watan ke shahidon ka rang laya hai

uchhal raha hai zamane mein nam-e-azadi

Firaq Gorakhpuri

vatan ḳhaak zarā eḌiyāñ ragaḌne de

mujhe yaqīn hai paanī yahīñ se niklegā

watan ki KHak zara eDiyan ragaDne de

mujhe yaqin hai pani yahin se niklega

Unknown

vatan ḳhaak se mar kar bhī ham ko uns baaqī hai

mazā dāmān-e-mādar hai is miTTī ke dāman meñ

watan ki KHak se mar kar bhi hum ko uns baqi hai

maza daman-e-madar ka hai is miTTi ke daman mein

Chakbast Brij Narayan
