Aagahi Shayari

As opposed to that adage that ignorance is bliss, we may pose a question as to what worth is a human being if he does not know, or is not enlightened.

āgahī karb vafā sabr tamannā ehsās

mere siine meñ utre haiñ ye ḳhanjar saare

apne man meñ Duub kar surāġh-e-zindagī

agar merā nahīñ bantā na ban apnā to ban

'saudā' jo be-ḳhabar hai vahī yaañ kare hai aish

mushkil bahut hai un ko jo rakhte haiñ āgahī

tirā vasl hai mujhe be-ḳhudī tirā hijr hai mujhe āgahī

tirā vasl mujh ko firāq hai tirā hijr mujh ko visāl hai

umr jo be-ḳhudī meñ guzrī hai

bas vahī āgahī meñ guzrī hai
