agar dard-e-mohabbat se na insāñ āshnā hotā

na kuchh marne ġham hotā na jiine mazā hotā

agar dard-e-mohabbat se na insan aashna hota

na kuchh marne ka gham hota na jine ka maza hota

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

ik silsila havas hai insāñ zindagī

is ek musht-e-ḳhāk ko ġham do-jahāñ ke haiñ

ek silsila hawas ka hai insan ki zindagi

is ek musht-e-KHak ko gham do-jahan ke hain

gunah-gāroñ meñ shāmil haiñ gunāhoñ se nahīñ vāqif

sazā ko jānte haiñ ham ḳhudā jaane ḳhatā kyā hai

gunah-garon mein shamil hain gunahon se nahin waqif

saza ko jaante hain hum KHuda jaane KHata kya hai

ek sāġhar bhī ināyat na huā yaad rahe

sāqiyā jaate haiñ mahfil tirī ābād rahe

ek saghar bhi inayat na hua yaad rahe

saqiya jate hain mahfil teri aabaad rahe

mazā hai ahd-e-javānī meñ sar paTakne
