kabhi wo dost kabhi fitna-saz lagta hai

kabhi wo dost kabhi fitna-saz lagta hai
wo dekhne mein bada dil-nawaz lagta hai
ghazab mein aae to aatish mizaj ban jae
wo mehrban ho to mahfil-gudaz lagta hai
jahan ka dard bhara hai mizaj mein us ke
wo ek hum se faqat be-niyaz lagta hai
wo todta bhi hai dil ek ada-e-naz ke sath
sitamgari mein bhi wo chaarasaz lagta hai
jafaen us ki wo maqbul-e-am hain itni
hamara shikwa bahut be-jawaz lagta hai
main sar-ba-sajda hua us ke dar pe to puchha
ye kaun shakhs hai mahw-e-namaz lagta hai
meri fughan pe ba-andaz-e-dad us ne kaha
tumhaara sher bahut dil-gudaz lagta hai
