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

Sudarshan Faakir

ujāle apnī yādoñ ke hamāre saath rahne do

na jaane kis galī meñ zindagī shaam ho jaa.e

ujale apni yaadon ke hamare sath rahne do

na jaane kis gali mein zindagi ki sham ho jae

Bashir Badr

na apne zabt ko rusvā karo satā ke mujhe

ḳhudā ke vāste dekho na muskurā ke mujhe

na apne zabt ko ruswa karo sata ke mujhe

KHuda ke waste dekho na muskura ke mujhe

Bismil Azimabadi

na jaane ruuTh ke baiThā hai dil chain kahāñ

mile to us ko hamārā koī salām kahe

na jaane ruTh ke baiTha hai dil ka chain kahan

mile to us ko hamara koi salam kahe

Kaleem Aajiz

unheñ apne dil ḳhabreñ mire dil se mil rahī haiñ

maiñ jo un se ruuTh jā.ūñ to payām tak na pahuñche

unhen apne dil ki KHabren mere dil se mil rahi hain

main jo un se ruTh jaun to payam tak na pahunche
