ai dil sharik-e-taifa-e-wajd-o-haal ho

ai dil sharik-e-taifa-e-wajd-o-haal ho
pyare ye aib hai to ba-hadd-e-kamal ho
'shibli'-o-'bayazid'-o-'gurunanak'-o-'kabir'
hangama-e-jalal mein raqs-e-jamal ho
sab ki zaban pe mast-kalandar ho dam-ba-dam
phir us ke baad raat mein dat kar dhamal ho
phir ham-safar karen taraf-e-la-jehat
ne sharq-o-gharb ho na junub-o-shumal ho
aasan ruju-e-shams hai lekin tere malang
pahunchen wahan jahan se palatna muhaal ho
ek kaenat-e-khwab ba-sad mumkinat-e-khwab
nairangi-e-khayal ba-husn-e-khayal ho
sarshaar-o-sarbuland-o-siyah-mast-o-sarfarosh
mahaul apne haal mein gum ho wo haal ho
gita ka tazkira ho to gautam se guftugu
aur wed ki zaban mein jawab-o-sawal ho
ai khizr-e-waqt majlis-e-aqtab-e-waqt mein
zikr-e-moamla ho na fikr-e-maal ho
hum yun rawan hon rah-e-abad mein ki sadd-e-rah
mustaqil-e-wajud na mazi-o-haal ho
kya kya tasawwuraat hain kya kya takhaiyyulat
aisa na ho ki ye bhi tilism-e-khayal ho
sab kuchh hai gar tilism-e-khayal-o-fusun to phir
ai dil sharik-e-taifa-e-wajd-o-haal ho
