Ik aaalam-e-hijraan hi ab hum ko pasand aaya,
Yeh khaana-e-viraaan hi ab hum ko pasand aaya,

Benaaam-o-nishaan rehna ghurbat ke ilaaqe main,
Yeh sheher bhi dilkash tha tab hum ko pasand aaya,

Khawb hote hain dekhne ke liye,
In main ja kar raha na karo..

Ranj e firaaq e yaar main ruswaa nahin hua,
Itna main chup hua ke tamasha nahin hua,

Aesa safar hai jis main koi hamsafar nahin,
Rasta hai is tarah ka ke dekha nahin hua,

Mushkil hua hai rehna humen iss dayaar main,
Barson yahan rahe hain yeh apnaa nahin hua,

Aayina ab juda nahin karta,
Qaid main hoon rihaa nahin karta,

Mustaqil sabr main hai koh-e-giraan,
Naqsh-e-ibrat sadaa nahin karta,

Rang-e-mehfil badalta rehta hai,
Rang koi wafaa nahin karta,

Laazim nahin ke us ko bhi mera khayal ho,
Mera jo haal hai wohi uss ka bhi haal ho,

Koi khabar khushi ki kahin se mile munir,
Iss roz-o-shab main aesa bhi ik din kamaal ho..

Meri saari zindagi ko be-samar us ne kiya,
Umar meri thi magar us ko bassar us ne kiya,

Main bohat kamzor tha us mulk main hijrat ke baad,
Pr mujhe us mulk main kamzor-tar us ne kiya,

Na jane kin adaaon se lubhaa liya geya mujhe,
Qateel mere samney churaa liya geya mujhe,

Kabhi jo un ke jashn mein seyaahiyan bikhar gayin,
To roshni ke vaastey jalaa liya geya mujhe,

Rahon pe nazar rakhna honton pe dua rakhna,
Aa jaye koi shayed darwaza khula rakhna,

Ehsaas ki shamaa ko is tarah jalaa rakhna,
Apni bhi khabar rakhna us ka bhi pata rakhna,

Aye dost teri aankh jo namm hai to mujhe kya,
Main khuub hansuunga tujhe gham hai to mujhe kya,

Kya main ne kaha tha ke zamaane se bhalaa kar,
Ab tuu bhi sazavaar-e-sitam hai to mujhe kya,

Aakhir woh mere qad ki bhi hadh se bhi guzar geya,
Kal shaam main to apne hi saaye se ddar geya..
