uTho ye manzar-e-shab-tāb dekhne ke liye

ki niiñd shart nahīñ ḳhvāb dekhne ke liye

uTho ye manzar-e-shab-tab dekhne ke liye

ki nind shart nahin KHwab dekhne ke liye

Irfan Siddiqi

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

unheñ bhī jiine ke kuchh tajrabe hue hoñge

jo kah rahe haiñ ki mar jaanā chāhte haiñ ham

unhen bhi jine ke kuchh tajrabe hue honge

jo kah rahe hain ki mar jaana chahte hain hum

Wali Aasi

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

īmāñ mujhe roke hai jo khīñche hai mujhe kufr

ka.aba mire pīchhe hai kalīsā mire aage

faith restrains me while I am tugged at by heresy

behind me stands the mosque, the church in front of me

iman mujhe roke hai jo khinche hai mujhe kufr

kaba mere pichhe hai kalisa mere aage

faith restrains me while I am tugged at by heresy

behind me stands the mosque, the church in front of me

ishrat-e-qatra hai dariyā meñ fanā ho jaanā

dard had se guzarnā hai davā ho jaanā

to be consumed by oceans is the droplet's ecstasy

when pain exceeds all bounds becomes, itself the remedy

ishrat-e-qatra hai dariya mein fana ho jaana

dard ka had se guzarna hai dawa ho jaana

to be consumed by oceans is the droplet's ecstasy

when pain exceeds all bounds becomes, itself the remedy
