Valentine's Day shayari

mohabbat meñ nahīñ hai farq jiine aur marne

usī ko dekh kar jiite haiñ jis kāfir pe dam nikle

In love there is no difference 'tween life and death do know

The very one for whom I die, life too does bestow

mohabbat mein nahin hai farq jine aur marne ka

usi ko dekh kar jite hain jis kafir pe dam nikle

In love there is no difference 'tween life and death do know

The very one for whom I die, life too does bestow

Mirza Ghalib

koī samjhe to ek baat kahūñ

ishq taufīq hai gunāh nahīñ

if someone were to listen, one thing I will opine

Love is not a crime forsooth it is grace divine

koi samjhe to ek baat kahun

ishq taufiq hai gunah nahin

if someone were to listen, one thing I will opine

Love is not a crime forsooth it is grace divine
