muddat huī ik shaḳhs ne dil toḌ diyā thā

is vāste apnoñ se mohabbat nahīñ karte

muddat hui ek shaKHs ne dil toD diya tha

is waste apnon se mohabbat nahin karte

Saqi Faruqi

ḳhudā ke vāste mauqā na de shikāyat

ki dostī tarah dushmanī nibhāyā kar

KHuda ke waste mauqa na de shikayat ka

ki dosti ki tarah dushmani nibhaya kar

Saqi Faruqi

merī ayyār nigāhoñ se vafā māñgtā hai

vo bhī mohtāj milā vo bhī savālī niklā

meri ayyar nigahon se wafa mangta hai

wo bhi mohtaj mila wo bhi sawali nikla

Saqi Faruqi

ye kyā tilism hai kyuuñ raat bhar sisaktā huuñ

vo kaun hai jo diyoñ meñ jalā rahā hai mujhe

ye kya tilism hai kyun raat bhar sisakta hun

wo kaun hai jo diyon mein jala raha hai mujhe

Saqi Faruqi

ab ghar bhī nahīñ ghar tamannā bhī nahīñ hai

muddat huī sochā thā ki ghar jā.eñge ik din

ab ghar bhi nahin ghar ki tamanna bhi nahin hai

muddat hui socha tha ki ghar jaenge ek din
