ai mauj-e-balā un ko bhī zarā do chaar thapeḌe halke se

kuchh log abhī tak sāhil se tūfāñ nazāra karte haiñ

ai mauj-e-bala un ko bhi zara do chaar thapeDe halke se

kuchh log abhi tak sahil se tufan ka nazara karte hain

Moin Ahsan Jazbi

ik muamma hai samajhne na samjhāne

zindagī kaahe ko hai ḳhvāb hai dīvāne

ek muamma hai samajhne ka na samjhane ka

zindagi kahe ko hai KHwab hai diwane ka

Fani Badayuni

chalā jaatā huuñ hañstā kheltā mauj-e-havādis se

agar āsāniyāñ hoñ zindagī dushvār ho jaa.e

I go laughing playing with waves of adversity

If life were to be easy, unbearable it would be

chala jata hun hansta khelta mauj-e-hawadis se

agar aasaniyan hon zindagi dushwar ho jae

I go laughing playing with waves of adversity

If life were to be easy, unbearable it would be

Asghar Gondvi

laa.e us but ko iltijā kar ke

kufr TuuTā ḳhudā ḳhudā kar ke

lae us but ko iltija kar ke

kufr TuTa KHuda KHuda kar ke

bāġh-e-bahisht se mujhe hukm-e-safar diyā thā kyuuñ

kār-e-jahāñ darāz hai ab mirā intizār kar

Why did you bid me leave from paradise for now

My work is yet unfinished here so you wil have to wait

bagh-e-bahisht se mujhe hukm-e-safar diya tha kyun

kar-e-jahan daraaz hai ab mera intizar kar

Why did you bid me leave from paradise for now

My work is yet unfinished here so you wil have to wait
