Ek Aisi Raah Pe Jo Teri Rahguzar Bhi Nahi!

  • Aaye To Yun Ki Jaise Hamesha The Meharban;
    Bhule To Yun Ki Goya Kabhi Aashna Na The!

  • Hum Ne Sab Sher Mein Sanware The;
    Hum Se Jitne Sukhan Tumhare The;

    Rang-o-Khusbhu Ke Husn-o-Khoobi Ke;
    Tum Se The Jitne Istiare The;

    Tere Kaul-o-Karar Se Pehle;
    Apne Kuch Aur Bhi Sahare The;

    Jab Wo Laal-o-Gohar Hisab Kiye;
    Jo Tere Gham Ne Dil Pe Vaare The;

    Mere Daaman Mein Aa Gire Saare;
    Jitne Tasht-E-Falak Mein Taare The;

    Umar-E-Jaaved Kee Dua Karte;
    'Faiz' Itne Wo Kab Hamare The!
    ~ Faiz Ahmad Faiz
  • Zindagi Kya Kisi Muflis Ke Qabaa Hai Jis Mein;

  • Na Gul Khile Hain Na Un Se Mile Na Mai Pee Hai;
    Ajeeb Rang Mein Ab Ke Bahaar Guzri Hai!

  • Bane Hain Ahal-E-Hawas Muddai Bhi Munsif Bhi;

  • Tumhari Yaad Ke Jab Zakhm Bharne Lagte Hain;
    Kisi Bahane Tumhein Yaad Karne Lagte Hain;

    Hadis-e-Yaar Ke Unavan Nikharane Lagte Hain;
    To Har Harim Mein Gesu Sanwarne Lagte Hain;

    Har Ajnabi Humein Mehram Dikhai Deta Hai;
    Jo Ab Bhi Teri Gali Se Guzarne Lagte Hain;

    Saba Se Karte Hain Gurbat-Nasib Zikr-e-Vatan;
    To Chashm-e-Subah Mein Aansu Ubharne Lagte Hain;

    Wo Jab Bhi Karte Hain Is Nutq-o-Lab Kee Bakhiyagari;
    Faza Mein Aur Bhi Nagme Bikharne Lagte Hain;

    Dar-e-Qafas Pe Andhere Kee Mohar Lagti Hai;
    To 'Faiz' Dil Mein Sitare Utarane Lagte Hain!
    ~ Faiz Ahmad Faiz
  • Kab Ta Dil Kee Khair Manayein Kab Tak Raah Dikhlaoge;
    Kab Tak Chain Kee Mohlat Doge Kab Tak Yaad Naa Aaoge;

    Beeta Deed Umeed Ka Mausam Khak Udti Hai Aankhon Mein;
    Kab Bhejoge Dard Ka Baadal Kab Barkha Barsaoge;

    Ahd-E-Wafa Ya Tark-E-Mohabbat Jo Chaho So Aap Karo;
    Apne Bas Kee Baat Hi Kya Hai Hum Se Kya Manwaoge;

    Kis Ne Vasl Ka Suraj Dekha Kis Par Hijr Kee Raat Dhali;
    Gesuon Wale Kaun The Kya The Un Ko Kya Jatlaoge;

    'Faiz' Dilon Ke Baag Mein Hai Ghar Bharnaa Bhi Lut Jana Thi;
    Tum Is Husn Ke Lutf-o-Karam Par Kitne Din Itraoge!
    ~ Faiz Ahmad Faiz
  • Kar Rahaa Tha Gham-e-Jahaan Ka Hisaab;<br/>
Aaj Tum Yaad Behisaab Aaye!
    Kar Rahaa Tha Gham-e-Jahaan Ka Hisaab;
    Aaj Tum Yaad Behisaab Aaye!

  • Dil Mein Ab Yun Tere

    Dil Mein Ab Yun Tere Bhule Hue Gham Aate Hain;
    Jaise Bichhde Hue Kaabe Mein Sanam Aate Hain;

    Ek Ek Kar Ke Hue Jaate Hain Taare Roshan;
    Meri Manzil Kee Taraf Tere Kadam Aate Hain;

    Raqs-e-Mai Tez Karo Saaz Kee Lai Tez Karo;
    Su-e-Mai-Khana Safeeran-e-Haram Aate Hain;

    Kuch Humin Ko Nahi Ehsan Uthane Ka Dimag;
    Wo To Jab Aate Hain Mail-Ba-Karam Aate Hain;

    Aur Kuch Der Na Guzre Shab-e-Furqat Se Kaho;
    Dil Bhi Kam Dukhta Hai Wo Yaad Bhi Kam Aate Hain!
    ~ Faiz Ahmad Faiz
