RUBAAI
aa ja ki khadi hai sham parda ghere
aabaad usi ne dil ki wadi ki hai
aada ko udhar haram ka mal mila
aadam ko ajab khuda ne rutba bakhsha
aadam ko ye tohfa ye hadiya na mila
aafaq se ustad-e-yagana uththa
aafat-o-hawadis se bhari hai duniya
aaghosh mein aa ki kaamrani kar lun
aahon se ayan barq-fishani ho jae
aaina jo hath uske ne ta-der liya
aaina-e-mahtab liye aae hain
aaine ko khud tod raha ho jaise
aakhir ko badhi to baat badhti hi gai
aala rutbe mein har bashar se paya
aalam-o-masaib mein giraftar sahi
aalam-o-masaib se lada karte hain
aalim o jahil mein kya farq hai
aankh abr-e-bahaari se ladi rahti hai
aankhen hain ki paigham mohabbat wale
aankhon mein haya uske jab aai shab-e-wasl
aankhon mein khumar-e-shauq-afza le kar
aankhon mein sahar jhalak rahi hai goya
aankhon mein wo ras jo patti patti dho jae
aasan nahin haal-e-dil ayan ho jaana
aasar-e-zawal
aashiq ke liye ranj-o-alam rakkhe hain
aashob-e-zamana se hai darna kaisa
aasudgi-e-zat nahin ho sakti
aata hai jo munh mein mujhe kah deti ho
aata nahin sanson mein maza pine ka
aati hai to khilti hai gulabon ki tarah
aawaz pe sangit ka hota hai bharam
aazadi-e-fikr o dars-e-hikmat hai gunah
ab aur zamin-o-asman paida ho
ab garm khabar maut ke aane ki hai
ab hind ki zulmat se nikalta hun main
ab jazba-e-wahshat ki qasam mat khao
ab khwab se chaunk waqt-e-bedari hai
ab walwale ishq ke tamanna mein nahin
ab waqt-e-surur- o farhat-andozi hai
ab ye bhi nahin ki nam to lete hain
ab zer-e-qadam lahad ka bab aa pahuncha
adna se jo sar jhukae aala wo hai
adyan-o-mazahib o milal ki jangen
aflak pe jab parcham-e-shab lahraya
aflas achchha na fikr-e-daulat achchhi
afsana-e-gham hai shadmani meri
afsos ki jis din se hum aazad hue
afsos sharab pi raha hun tanha
afsos shikayat-e-nihani na gai
afsurda faza pe jaise chhaya ho hiras
afzal koi murtaza se himmat mein nahin
afzun hain bayan se mojizat-e-haidar
ahbab mulaqat ko jo aate hain
ahbab ne sau tarah hamein khwar kiya
ahbab se ummid hai be-ja mujhko
ai aish-o-tarab tu ne jahan raj kiya
ai bakht! maze kuchh to uthaun main bhi
ai bakht-e-rasa su-e-najaf rahi kar
ai dil jo ye aankh aaj ladai usne
ai khaaliq-e-zulfazl-o-karam rahmat kar
ai khizr ke rahbar mujhe gumrah na kar
ai mani-e-kainat mujh mein aa ja
ai mard-e-khuda nafs ko apne pahchan
ai momino fatima ka pyara shabbir
ai raunaq-e-lala-zar wapas aa ja
ai ruh-e-awadh teri mohabbat ke nisar
ai rup ki laxmi ye jalwon ka rag
ai sahab-e-zar amir-e-ala tu kaun
ai shah ke gham mein jaan khone walo
ai shah-e-junun tere irfan ko salam
ai shaikh-e-haram tak tujhe aana jaana
ai zahid-e-haq-shanas wale aalim-e-din
aisa na ho haq ka samna ho jae
aisa na ho haq ka samna ho jae
akasr main yahan misl-e-samundar aaya
akbar ne jo ghar maut ka aabaad kiya
akhlaq ke unsur hon agar asl mizaj
akhlaq se ho gai aari duniya
akhlaq se jahl ilm-o-fan se ghafil
akhtar se bhi aabru mein behtar hai ye ashk
alfaz ki rag rag mein rachata hun lahu
allah allah izz-o-jah-e-zakir
allah mataa-e-zindagani mil jae
amrit se fazaen dam-ba-dam dhulti hain
amrit wo halahal ko bana deti hai
andaz-e-sukhan tum jo hamare samjho
andoh-e-shabab talne ko kham hun
anjam pe apne aah-o-zari kar tu
apni had se guzar gae ab kya hai
arbab-e-quyud tujhko kya dekhenge
arbab-e-wafa ki jaan-gudazi dekhi
ashaar mein dhalta hai mera soz-e-darun
ashab ne puchha jo nabi ko dekha
ashkon mein nahao to jigar thande hon
asliyat agar nahin to dhoka hi sahi
auron ko bataun kya main ghaten apni
baadal aa ke ro gae hae ghazab
baalon pe ghubar-e-sheb zahir hai ab
baaton mein to ikhtiyar shirini kar
