Ghazal 37

Nazm 40

Sher 38

phir koī vus.at-e-āfāq pe saaya Daale

phir kisī aañkh ke nuqte meñ utārā jā.ūñ

phir koi wusat-e-afaq pe saya Dale

phir kisi aankh ke nuqte mein utara jaun

girte rahe nujūm andhere zulf se

shab bhar rahīñ ḳhamoshiyāñ sāyoñ se ham-kanār

girte rahe nujum andhere ki zulf se

shab bhar rahin KHamoshiyan sayon se ham-kanar

āvāz dīvār bhī chup-chāp khaḌī thī

khiḌkī se jo dekhā to galī uuñgh rahī thī

aawaz ki diwar bhi chup-chap khaDi thi

khiDki se jo dekha to gali ungh rahi thi

Audios 27

aashiq the shahr me.n jo puraane sharaab ke

ab TuuTne hii vaalaa hai tanhaa.ii kaa hisaar

badan par na.ii fasl aane lagii
