Sher 11

'aḳhtar'-e-zār bhī ho mus.haf-e-ruḳh par shaidā

faal ye nek hai qur.ān se ham dekhte haiñ

'aKHtar'-e-zar bhi ho mushaf-e-ruKH par shaida

fal ye nek hai quran se hum dekhte hain

barā.e-sair mujh riñd mai-ḳhāne meñ gar aa.e

gire sāġhar luñDhe shīsha hañse saaqī bahe dariyā

barae-sair mujh sa rind mai-KHane mein gar aae

gire saghar lunDhe shisha hanse saqi bahe dariya
