Hasrat Mohani

har-chand ho mushāhida-e-haq guftugū

bantī nahīñ hai bāda-o-sāġhar kahe baġhair

On nature of eternal truth were there to be discourse

Sans mention of goblet and wine there is no recourse

har-chand ho mushahida-e-haq ki guftugu

banti nahin hai baada-o-saghar kahe baghair

On nature of eternal truth were there to be discourse

Sans mention of goblet and wine there is no recourse

Mirza Ghalib

khā gayā insāñ ko āshob-e-ma.āsh

aa ga.e haiñ shahr bāzāroñ ke biich

kha gaya insan ko aashob-e-maash

aa gae hain shahr bazaron ke bich

Obaidullah Aleem

fikr-e-ma.āsh ishq-e-butāñ yād-e-raftagāñ

is zindagī meñ ab koī kyā kyā kiyā kare

fikr-e-maash ishq-e-butan yaad-e-raftagan

is zindagi mein ab koi kya kya kiya kare
