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

is tarah zindagī ne diyā hai hamārā saath

jaise koī nibāh rahā ho raqīb se

is tarah zindagi ne diya hai hamara sath

jaise koi nibah raha ho raqib se

Sahir Ludhianvi

ulfat meñ barābar hai vafā ho ki jafā ho

har baat meñ lazzat hai agar dil meñ mazā ho

ulfat mein barabar hai wafa ho ki jafa ho

har baat mein lazzat hai agar dil mein maza ho
