kaun hai jahāñ jalva-e-māshūq nahīñ

shauq-e-dīdār agar hai to nazar paidā kar

where in this world does ones beloved's beauty not reside

if the zeal for sight you have, the vision too provide

kaun si ja hai jahan jalwa-e-mashuq nahin

shauq-e-didar agar hai to nazar paida kar

where in this world does ones beloved's beauty not reside

if the zeal for sight you have, the vision too provide

Ameer Minai

bichhaḌne irāda hai to mujh se mashvara kar lo

mohabbat meñ koī bhī faisla zaatī nahīñ hotā

bichhaDne ka irada hai to mujh se mashwara kar lo

mohabbat mein koi bhi faisla zati nahin hota

warna in bikhre hue taron se kya kaam bane
