Subah Shayari

We like the morning hour for so many qualities like its coolness, freshness, pleasant breeze, chirping of birds, and such other reasons. Metaphorically, it also announces the victory of light over darkness. Poets have celebrated this hour with great enthusiasm. Here are some examples.

raat aa kar guzar bhī jaatī hai

ik hamārī sahar nahīñ hotī

raat aa kar guzar bhi jati hai

ek hamari sahar nahin hoti

Ibn e Insha

kaun baat na.ī ai dil-e-nākām huī

shaam se sub.h huī sub.h se phir shaam huī

o luckless heart what was new today you tell me pray

day first turned into night, then night turned into day

kaun si baat nai ai dil-e-nakaam hui

sham se subh hui subh se phir sham hui

o luckless heart what was new today you tell me pray

day first turned into night, then night turned into day

Shad Azimabadi

na.ī sub.h par nazar hai magar aah ye bhī Dar hai

ye sahar bhī rafta rafta kahīñ shaam tak na pahuñche

nai subh par nazar hai magar aah ye bhi Dar hai

ye sahar bhi rafta rafta kahin sham tak na pahunche

Shakeel Badayuni

ab aa ga.ī hai sahar apnā ghar sambhālne ko

chalūñ ki jaagā huā raat bhar maiñ bhī huuñ

ab aa gai hai sahar apna ghar sambhaalne ko

chalun ki jaga hua raat bhar ka main bhi hun

Irfan Siddiqi

ham aise ahl-e-nazar ko subūt-e-haq ke liye

agar rasūl na hote to sub.h kaafī thī

hum aise ahl-e-nazar ko subut-e-haq ke liye

agar rasul na hote to subh kafi thi

Josh Malihabadi

Humaira Rahman

rone vaale hue chup hijr duniyā badlī

sham.a be-nūr huī sub.h taarā niklā

rone wale hue chup hijr ki duniya badli

shama be-nur hui subh ka tara nikla

Firaq Gorakhpuri

numūd-e-sub.h se shab vo tīrgī to ga.ī

ye aur baat ki sūraj meñ raushnī kam hai

numud-e-subh se shab ki wo tirgi to gai

ye aur baat ki suraj mein raushni kam hai

Syed Nawab Afsar Lakhnavi

sub.h savere ran paḌnā hai aur ghamsān ran

subh sawere ran paDna hai aur ghamsan ka ran

raaton raat chala jae jis ko jaana hai
