añdheroñ ko nikālā rahā hai


magar ghar se ujālā rahā hai

aaj us se maiñ ne shikva kiyā thā sharāratan


kis ko ḳhabar thī itnā burā maan jā.egā

ai jalva-e-jānānā phir aisī jhalak dikhlā


hasrat bhī rahe baaqī armāñ bhī nikal jaa.e

dil se agar kabhī tirā armān jā.egā


ghar ko lagā ke aag ye mehmān jā.egā

duniyā pe aisā vaqt paḌegā ki ek din


insān talāsh meñ insān jā.egā

duniyā-e-tasavvur ham ābād nahīñ karte


yaad aate ho tum ḳhud ham yaad nahīñ karte

ġhairat-e-ahl-e-chaman ko kyā huā


chhoḌ aa.e āshiyāñ jaltā huā

ġham se nāzuk zabt-e-ġham baat hai


ye bhī dariyā hai magar Thahrā huā

gul to gul ḳhaar tak chun liye haiñ


phir bhī ḳhālī hai gulchīñ dāman

ik tujh ko dekhne ke liye bazm meñ mujhe


auroñ samt maslahatan dekhnā paḌā

is tarah rahbar ne luuTā kārvāñ


ai 'fanā' rahzan ko bhī sadma huā

jab safīna mauj se Takrā gayā


nāḳhudā ko bhī ḳhudā yaad aa gayā

jalva ho to jalva ho parda ho to parda ho


tauhīn-e-tajallī hai chilman se na jhāñkā kar

koī pāband-e-mohabbat batā saktā hai


ek dīvāne zanjīr se rishta kyā hai

koī samjhegā kyā raaz-e-gulshan


jab tak uljhe na kāñToñ se dāman

kuchh dard shiddat hai kuchh paas-e-mohabbat hai


ham aah to karte haiñ fariyād nahīñ karte

maiñ chalā aayā tirā husn-e-taġhāful le kar


ab tirī anjuman-e-naaz meñ rakkhā kyā hai

maiñ us ke sāmne se guzartā huuñ is liye


tark-e-ta.alluqāt ehsās mar na jaa.e

maiñ us ke sāmne se guzartā huuñ is liye


tark-e-ta.alluqāt ehsās mar na jaa.e

maujoñ ke ittihād aalam na pūchhiye


qatra uThā aur uTh ke samundar uThā liyā

qaid-e-ġham-e-hayāt bhī kyā chiiz hai 'fanā'


raah-e-farār mil na sakī umr-bhar phire

rahtā hai vahāñ zikr-e-tuhūr-o-mai-e-kausar


ham aaj se kaabe ko bhī mai-ḳhāna kaheñge

sāhil ke tamāshā.ī har Dūbne vaale par


afsos to karte haiñ imdād nahīñ karte

sab hoñge us se apne ta.āruf fikr meñ


mujh ko mire sukūt se pahchān jā.egā

sahtā rahā jafā-e-dost kahtā rahā adā-e-dost


mere ḳhulūs ne mirā jiinā muhāl kar diyā
