ḳhudī ko kar buland itnā ki har taqdīr se pahle

ḳhudā bande se ḳhud pūchhe batā terī razā kyā hai

KHudi ko kar buland itna ki har taqdir se pahle

KHuda bande se KHud puchhe bata teri raza kya hai

Allama Iqbal

thamte thamte thameñge aañsū

ronā hai kuchh hañsī nahīñ hai

thamte thamte thamenge aansu

rona hai kuchh hansi nahin hai

maanā ki terī diid ke qābil nahīñ huuñ maiñ

merā shauq dekh mirā intizār dekh

agreed I am not worthy of your vision divine

behold my zeal, my passion see how I wait and pine

mana ki teri did ke qabil nahin hun main

tu mera shauq dekh mera intizar dekh

agreed I am not worthy of your vision divine

behold my zeal, my passion see how I wait and pine

Allama Iqbal

shab-e-vasl mo.azzin ne azaañ pichhlī raat

di shab-e-wasl moazzin ne azan pichhli raat

hae kam-baKHt ko kis waqt KHuda yaad aaya
