zamīn kokh zaḳhmī nahīñ andheroñ se

hai āsmāñ ke bhī siine pe āftāb zaḳhm

zamin ki kokh hi zaKHmi nahin andheron se

hai aasman ke bhi sine pe aaftab ka zaKHm

Ibn e Safi

ḳhirāj maañg rahī hai vo shāh-bānu-e-shahr

so ham bhī hadiya-e-dast-e-talab guzārte haiñ

KHiraj mang rahi hai wo shah-banu-e-shahr

so hum bhi hadiya-e-dast-e-talab guzarte hain

Irfan Siddiqi

us ġhairat-e-nāhīd har taan hai dīpak

sho.ala lapak jaa.e hai āvāz to dekho

us ghairat-e-nahid ki har tan hai dipak

shoala sa lapak jae hai aawaz to dekho

ba-qadr-e-paimāna-e-taḳhayyul surūr har dil meñ hai ḳhudī

agar na ho ye fareb-e-paiham to dam nikal jaa.e aadmī

ba-qadr-e-paimana-e-taKHayyul surur har dil mein hai KHudi ka

agar na ho ye fareb-e-paiham to dam nikal jae aadmi ka

kitni aahista aur kitni tez
