mirā zamīr bahut hai mujhe sazā ke liye

dost hai to nasīhat na kar ḳhudā ke liye

mera zamir bahut hai mujhe saza ke liye

tu dost hai to nasihat na kar KHuda ke liye

Shaz Tamkanat

TuuTe but masjid banī mismār but-ḳhāna huā

jab to ik sūrat bhī thī ab saaf vīrāna huā

TuTe but masjid bani mismar but-KHana hua

jab to ek surat bhi thi ab saf virana hua

Rind Lakhnavi

zindagi kya hai aaj ise ai dost

soch len aur udas ho jaen

qarār dil ko sadā jis ke naam se aayā

vo aayā bhī to kisī aur kaam se aayā

qarar dil ko sada jis ke nam se aaya

wo aaya bhi to kisi aur kaam se aaya

Jamal Ehsani

tasadduq is karam ke maiñ kabhī tanhā nahīñ rahtā

ki jis din tum nahīñ aate tumhārī yaad aatī hai

tasadduq is karam ke main kabhi tanha nahin rahta

ki jis din tum nahin aate tumhaari yaad aati hai

One of the greatest Urdu poets .

dekh to dil ki jaañ se uThtā hai

ye dhuāñ kahāñ se uThtā hai

see if it rises from the heart or from the soul it flows

does anybody know the source from where this smoke arose?

dekh to dil ki jaan se uThta hai

ye dhuan sa kahan se uThta hai

see if it rises from the heart or from the soul it flows

does anybody know the source from where this smoke arose?
