MORE BY Sher Afzal Jafri

    jalva be-māya thā chashm-o-nazar se pahle

    ziist ik hādsa thī qalb-o-jigar se pahle

    husn ke soz-e-numā.ish hai in.ām-e-hayāt

    vaqt bhī vaqt na thā shams-o-qamar se pahle

    vahī utrī dil-e-betāb tashkīl ke ba.ad

    ishq ta.amīr huā ilm-o-hunar se pahle

    ain firdaus meñ jal uTThā thā aadam shabāb

    aag barsī thī yahīñ dīda-e-tar se pahle

    phir kahīñ dil ke sivā un ko amaañ na milī

    but nikāle ga.e allāh ke ghar se pahle

    zindagī mazra.a-e-taklīf-o-sukūñ hai 'afzal'

    shaam ugtī hai yahāñ nūr-e-sahar se pahle

    jalwa be-maya sa tha chashm-o-nazar se pahle

    zist ek hadsa thi qalb-o-jigar se pahle

    husn ke soz-e-numaish ka hai inam-e-hayat

    waqt bhi waqt na tha shams-o-qamar se pahle

    wahi utri dil-e-betab ki tashkil ke baad

    ishq tamir hua ilm-o-hunar se pahle

    ain firdaus mein jal uTTha tha aadam ka shabab

    aag barsi thi yahin dida-e-tar se pahle

    phir kahin dil ke siwa un ko aman hi na mili

    but nikale gae allah ke ghar se pahle

    zindagi mazra-e-taklif-o-sukun hai 'afzal'

    sham ugti hai yahan nur-e-sahar se pahle
