agar shu.ūr na ho to bahisht hai duniyā

baḌe azaab meñ guzrī hai āgahī ke saath

agar shuur na ho to bahisht hai duniya

baDe azab mein guzri hai aagahi ke sath

bayān-e-laġhzish-e-ādam na kar ki vo fitna

mirī zamīñ se nahīñ tere āsmāñ se uThā

bayan-e-laghzish-e-adam na kar ki wo fitna

meri zamin se nahin tere aasman se uTha

dil ke ujḌe nagar ko kar ābād

is Dagar ko bhī koī raahī de

dil ke ujDe nagar ko kar aabaad

is Dagar ko bhi koi rahi de
