    gar tujh meñ hai vafā to jafākār kaun hai

    dildār huā to dil-āzār kaun hai

    if you harbour loyalty / then who is treacherous

    if you are benevolent / then who is barbarous

    nālāñ huuñ muddatoñ se tire saa.e ke tale

    pūchhā na ye kabhū pas-e-dīvār kaun hai

    for ages I'm lamenting here / underneath your shade

    to ask "who is behind the wall?" / you never essayed

    har shab sharāb-ḳhvār har ik din siyāh hai

    āshufta zulf o laTpaTī dastār kaun hai

    every night's immersed in wine / and dark is every day

    who is that with hair awry, headwrap in disarray?

    har aan dekhtā huuñ maiñ apne sanam ko shaiḳh

    tere ḳhudā tālib-e-dīdār kaun hai

    preacher, every moment my / beloved I have seen

    for a vision of your God, do tell me who is keen?

    'saudā' ko jurm-e-ishq se karte haiñ aaj qatl

    pahchāntā hai ye gunahgār kaun hai

    for his crime of passion / 'saudā's' being slain today

    do you recognise who is / this sinner, by the way?

    gar tujh mein hai wafa to jafakar kaun hai

    dildar tu hua to dil-azar kaun hai

    if you harbour loyalty / then who is treacherous

    if you are benevolent / then who is barbarous

    nalan hun muddaton se tere sae ke tale

    puchha na ye kabhu pas-e-diwar kaun hai

    for ages I'm lamenting here / underneath your shade

    to ask "who is behind the wall?" / you never essayed

    har shab sharab-KHwar har ek din siyah hai

    aashufta zulf o laTpaTi dastar kaun hai

    every night's immersed in wine / and dark is every day

    who is that with hair awry, headwrap in disarray?

    har aan dekhta hun main apne sanam ko shaiKH

    tere KHuda ka talib-e-didar kaun hai

    preacher, every moment my / beloved I have seen

    for a vision of your God, do tell me who is keen?

    'sauda' ko jurm-e-ishq se karte hain aaj qatl

    pahchanta hai tu ye gunahgar kaun hai

    for his crime of passion / 'saudā's' being slain today

    do you recognise who is / this sinner, by the way?
