Insaan Shayari

Human beings belong to the category of God’s supreme creation. Man has to deserve to be a human being as it calls for great perseverance to achieve that status. Poetic discourses on men and human beings are spread in poetry in all languages. Here are a few samples from Urdu poets that you may like to read and enjoy.

ādamiyyat aur shai hai ilm hai kuchh aur shai

kitnā tote ko paḌhāyā par vo haivāñ rahā

aadamiyyat aur shai hai ilm hai kuchh aur shai

kitna tote ko paDhaya par wo haiwan hi raha

aadmī aadmī se miltā hai

dil magar kam kisī se miltā hai

People meet each other, fairly frequently

But, meeting of hearts, seldom does one see

aadmi aadmi se milta hai

dil magar kam kisi se milta hai

People meet each other, fairly frequently

But, meeting of hearts, seldom does one see
