sāmne hai jo use log burā kahte haiñ

jis ko dekhā nahīñ us ko ḳhudā kahte haiñ

samne hai jo use log bura kahte hain

jis ko dekha hi nahin us ko KHuda kahte hain

jaise koī nibāh rahā ho raqīb se

is tarah zindagi ne diya hai hamara sath

jaise koi nibah raha ho raqib se

mohabbat ke liye kuchh ḳhaas dil maḳhsūs hote haiñ

ye vo naġhma hai jo har saaz par gaayā nahīñ jaatā

mohabbat ke liye kuchh KHas dil maKHsus hote hain

ye wo naghma hai jo har saz par gaya nahin jata

Makhmoor Dehlvi

kashtiyāñ sab kināre pe pahuñch jaatī haiñ

nāḳhudā jin nahīñ un ḳhudā hotā hai

kashtiyan sab ki kinare pe pahunch jati hain

naKHuda jin ka nahin un ka KHuda hota hai
