Kaleem Aajiz

ulfat meñ barābar hai vafā ho ki jafā ho

har baat meñ lazzat hai agar dil meñ mazā ho

ulfat mein barabar hai wafa ho ki jafa ho

har baat mein lazzat hai agar dil mein maza ho

nāhaq ham majbūroñ par ye tohmat hai muḳhtārī

chāhte haiñ so aap kareñ haiñ ham ko abas badnām kiyā

Us weak, she wrongfully accuses, of taking untold liberty

while she acts as she chooses, and maligns us needlessly

nahaq hum majburon par ye tohmat hai muKHtari ki

chahte hain so aap karen hain hum ko abas badnam kiya

Us weak, she wrongfully accuses, of taking untold liberty

while she acts as she chooses, and maligns us needlessly
