kashtiyāñ sab kināre pe pahuñch jaatī haiñ

nāḳhudā jin nahīñ un ḳhudā hotā hai

kashtiyan sab ki kinare pe pahunch jati hain

naKHuda jin ka nahin un ka KHuda hota hai

kyā kahūñ us se ki jo baat samajhtā nahīñ

vo to milne ko mulāqāt samajhtā nahīñ

kya kahun us se ki jo baat samajhta hi nahin

wo to milne ko mulaqat samajhta hi nahin

Fatima Hasan

kyuuñ pashemāñ ho agar va.ada vafā ho na sakā

kahīñ va.ade bhī nibhāne ke liye hote haiñ

kyun pasheman ho agar wada wafa ho na saka

kahin wade bhi nibhane ke liye hote hain

karūñgā kyā jo mohabbat meñ ho gayā nākām

karunga kya jo mohabbat mein ho gaya nakaam

mujhe to aur koi kaam bhi nahin aata

Ghulam Mohammad Qasir

hosh wale ho to har baat ko samjha na karo
