inhīñ pattharoñ pe chal kar agar aa sako to aao

mire ghar ke rāste meñ koī kahkashāñ nahīñ hai

inhin pattharon pe chal kar agar aa sako to aao

mere ghar ke raste mein koi kahkashan nahin hai

Mustafa Zaidi

na jaane kis hameñ umr bhar talāsh rahī

jise qarīb se dekhā vo dūsrā niklā

na jaane kis ki hamein umr bhar talash rahi

jise qarib se dekha wo dusra nikla

Khalilur Rahman Azmi

kyuuñ pashemāñ ho agar va.ada vafā ho na sakā

kahīñ va.ade bhī nibhāne ke liye hote haiñ

kyun pasheman ho agar wada wafa ho na saka

kahin wade bhi nibhane ke liye hote hain

rañg ḳhushbū aur mausam bahānā ho gayā

apnī tasvīr meñ chehra purānā ho gayā

rang KHushbu aur mausam ka bahana ho gaya

apni hi taswir mein chehra purana ho gaya

Khalid Ghani

kahānī likhte hue dāstāñ sunāte hue

vo so gayā hai mujhe ḳhvāb se jagāte hue

kahani likhte hue dastan sunate hue

wo so gaya hai mujhe KHwab se jagate hue

Venetian blind

ḳhuub parda hai ki chilman se lage baiThe haiñ

saaf chhupte bhī nahīñ sāmne aate bhī nahīñ

what coyness this is, to abide,a screen beside her face

which neither does she clearly hide nor openly display

KHub parda hai ki chilman se lage baiThe hain

saf chhupte bhi nahin samne aate bhi nahin

what coyness this is, to abide,a screen beside her face

which neither does she clearly hide nor openly display

Momin Khan Momin

1800-1852

Contemporary of Ghalib and Zauq. He was also a physician, astrologer and chess player. Mirza Ghalib is said to have offered his complete diwan for his sher "tum mere paas hote ho goya, Jab koi doosra nahin hota".

vo jo ham meñ tum meñ qarār thā tumheñ yaad ho ki na yaad ho

vahī ya.anī va.ada nibāh tumheñ yaad ho ki na yaad ho

the love that 'tween us used to be, you may, may not recall

those promises of constancy, you may, may not recall

wo jo hum mein tum mein qarar tha tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho

wahi yani wada nibah ka tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho

the love that 'tween us used to be, you may, may not recall

those promises of constancy, you may, may not recall
