diyā ḳhāmosh hai lekin kisī dil to jaltā hai

chale aao jahāñ tak raushnī ma.alūm hotī hai

the lamp's extinguised but someone's heart

diya KHamosh hai lekin kisi ka dil to jalta hai

chale aao jahan tak raushni malum hoti hai

the lamp's extinguised but someone's heart

daaġh duniyā ne diye zaḳhm zamāne se mile

ham ko tohfe ye tumheñ dost banāne se mile

dagh duniya ne diye zaKHm zamane se mile

hum ko tohfe ye tumhein dost banane se mile

dil-e-muztar se pūchh ai raunaq-e-bazm

maiñ ḳhud aayā nahīñ laayā gayā huuñ

dil-e-muztar se puchh ai raunaq-e-bazm

main KHud aaya nahin laya gaya hun

lafz o manzar meñ ma.ānī ko TaTolā na karo

hosh vaale ho to har baat ko samjhā na karo

lafz o manzar mein maani ko TaTola na karo

hosh wale ho to har baat ko samjha na karo

Mahmood Ayaz

bahut udaas thā us din magar huā kyā thā

har ek baat bhalī thī to phir burā kyā thā

bahut udas tha us din magar hua kya tha

har ek baat bhali thi to phir bura kya tha

Eminent Urdu Poet and contemporary of Dagh Dehlvi. Famous for penning ghazal "Sarakti jaye hai rukh se naqaab aahista aahista".

saraktī jaa.e hai ruḳh se naqāb āhista āhista

nikaltā aa rahā hai āftāb āhista āhista
