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 paak hogā kabhī husn o ishq jhagḌā

vo qissa hai ye ki jis koī gavāh nahīñ

na pak hoga kabhi husn o ishq ka jhagDa

wo qissa hai ye ki jis ka koi gawah nahin

ḳhud-kushī jurm bhī hai sabr tauhīn bhī hai

is liye ishq meñ mar mar ke jiyā jaatā hai

KHud-kushi jurm bhi hai sabr ki tauhin bhi hai

is liye ishq mein mar mar ke jiya jata hai

tu sach bata ye mulaqat aaKHri hai na
