• Mil Bhi Jate Hain To

    Mil Bhi Jate Hain To Katara Ke Nikal Jate Hain;
    Haye Mausam Ke Tarah Dost Badal Jate Hain;

    Hum Abhi Tak Hain Giraftar-e-Muhabbat Yaroo;
    Thokaren Kha Ke Suna Tha Ki Sambhal Jate Hain;

    Ye Kabhi Apni Jafa Par Na Hua Sharminda;
    Hum Samajhate Rahe Pathar Bhi Pighal Jate Hain;

    Umr Bhar Jin Ke Vafaon Pe Bharosa Kije;
    Waqt Padane Pe Wohi Log Badal Jate Hain!
    ~ Bashir Badr
  • Jahan Weeraana Hai

    Jahan Weeraana Hai Pahle Kabhi Aabad Yaan Ghar The;
    Shaghaal Ab Hai Jahan Baste, Kabhi Bashar Yaan The;

    Jahan Chatial Hai Maidan Aur Sarasar Ek Khaaristan;
    Kabhi Yaan Qasar-o-Oaiwan The, Chaman The Aur Shajar Yaan The;

    Jahan Phirte Bagoole Hain, Unraate Khak Sahra Mein;
    Kabhi Urti Thi Daulat, Raqas Karte Seembar Yaan The;

    Jahan Hain Sang Reze, The Yahaan Yaaqut Ke Taude;
    Jahan Kankar Pare Hain Ab, Kabhi Rulte Gohar Yaan The;

    Jahan Sunsaan Ab Jungle Hai Aur Hai Sher-e-Khamoshan;
    Kabhi Kya Kya The Hangaame Yahan, Aur Shor-o-Shar Yaan The;

    Jahan Ab Khak Par Hain Naqash-e-Paae-Aahu-e-Sahra;
    Kabhi Mahw-e-Tamasha Deeda-e-Ahl-Enazar Yaan The;

    Zafar Ahwaal Aalam Ka Kabhi Kuchh Hai, Kabhi Kuchh Hai;

  • Aadam Ka Jism Kab

    Aadam Ka Jism Kab Ke Anaasir Se Mil Bana;
    Kuchh Aag Bach Rahi Thi, So Aashiq Ka Dil Bana;

    Sar Garam-E-Nala In Dinon Main Bhi Hoon, Andleeb;
    Mat Aashian Chaman Mein Mere Mutsil Bana;

    Jab Teesha Kohkan Ne Liya Haath, Tab Yeh Ishq;
    Bola Ke Apni Chhati Pe Dharne Ko Sil Bana;

    Jis Teergi Se Roz Hai Ushaaq Ka Seaah;
    Shaaid Usi Se Chehre-E-Khubaan Pe Til Bana;

    Lab Zindagi Mein Kab Mile Us Lab Se, Ai Kalaal;
    Saagar Hamaari Khaak Ko Math Karke Gil Bana;

    Apne Hunar Dikha Denge Hum Tujhko Sheesha Gar;
    Toota Hua Kisi Ka Agar Hum Se Dil Bana;

    Sun Sun Ke Arz-E-Haal Mera Yaar Ne Kaha;
    Sauda Na Baaten Baith Ke Yaan Mutsil Bana!

  • Gham-E-Dil Ko Inn Aakhon Se

    Gham-E-Dil Ko Inn Aakhon Se Chalak Jana Bhi Aata Hai;
    Tarapna Bhi Hamein Aata Hai Tarpaana Bhi Aata Hai;

    Kisi Ki Yaad Mein Jo Zindagi Hum Ne Guzaari Hai;
    Hamein Woh Zindagi Apni Mohabbat Se Bhi Pyari Hai;

    Woh Aayein Ru-Ba-Ru Hum Dastaan Apni Sunayein Ge;
    Kuch Apna Dil Jalayein Ge, Kuch Unnko Aazmayein Ge;

    Dabe Paaon Hamein Aa Kar Kisi Ka Gud-Gudaa Dena;
    Woh Apna Rooth Jana Aur Woh Unnka Manaa Lena;

    Woh Manzar Jhaankte Hain Aaj Bhi Yaadon Ki Chilman Se;
    Bhula Sakta Hai Kaise Koi Woh Anzaad Bachpan Ke;

    Hamein Aata Nahi Hai Pyar Mein Be-Aabru Hona;
    Sikhaya Husn Ko Hum Ne Wafaa Mein Surkhuroo Hona;

    Hum Apne Khoon-E-Dil Se Zindagi Ki Maang Bhar Dein Ge;
    Yeh Dil Kya Cheez Hai, Hum Jaan Bhi Qurbaan Kar Dein Ge!
  • Ye Jo Hai Hukm Mere

    Yeh Jo Hai Hukam Mere Pas Na Aaye Koi;
    Is Liye Ruth Rahe Hain Ki Manaye Koi;

    Tak Mein Hai Nigah-E-Shauq Khuda Khair Kare;
    Samane Se Mere Bachata Hua Jaye Koi;

    Hal Afalaq-O-Zamin Ka Jo Bataya Bhi To Kya;
    Baat Wo Hai Jo Tere Dil Ke Bataye Koi;

    Aapane 'dag' Ko Muh Bhi Na Lagaya Afsos;
    Us Ko Rakhta Tha Kaleje Se Lagaye Koi;

    Ho Chuka Aish Ka Jalasa To Mujhe Khat Bheja;
    Aap Ke Tarah Se Mehaman Bulaye Koi!

  • Wafa Ke Khwab

    Wafa Ke Khwab Muhabbat Ka Aasara Le Ja;
    Agar Chala Hai To Jo Kuch Mujhe Diya Le Ja;

    Maqam-E-Sud-O-Ziyan Aa Gaya Hai Phir Janan;
    Yeh Zakhm Mere Sahi Tir To Utha Le Ja;

    Yahi Hai Qismat-E-Sahara Yahi Karam Tera;
    Ki Bund Bund Ata Kar Ghata Ghata Le Ja;

    Gurur-E-Dost Se Itna Bhi Dilshikasta Na Ho;
    Phir Uth Ke Samane Daman-E-Iltaja Le Ja;

    Nadamaten Hoon To Sar Bar-E-Dosh Hota Hai;
    Faraz Jaan Ke Evaz Aabaru Bacha Le Ja!

  • Tere Ishq Ke Intaha

    Tere Ishq Ke Intaha Chahata Hoon;
    Meri Sadagi Dekh Kya Chahata Hoon;

    Sitam Ho Ki Ho Vada-E-Behijabi;
    Koi Baat Sabr-Azama Chahata Hoon;

    Ye Jannat Mubarak Rahe Zahidon Ko;
    Ki Main Aap Ka Samana Chahata Hoon;

    Chirag-E-Sahar Hun, Bujha Chahata Hoon;

    Bhari Bazm Mein Raaz Ke Baat Kah Di;
    Bada Be-Adab Hun, Saza Chahata Hoon!

  • Tu Nahi Toh Zindagi

    Tu Nahi Toh Zindagi Mien Ujala Kaisa;
    Roshni Ke Sath Jeete Hai Bas Maut Ke Jaise;

    Sadma Toh Hai Tu Mere Sang Nahi;
    Haste Chehre Pe Yeh Hamare Muskarana Kaisa;

    Jeete Ja Rahe Hai Zindagi Ka Alam Shauk Ke Sath;
    Sath Tera Na Ho Tou Ye Hasna Hasana Kaisa;

    Ya Khuda Yhe Kaisi Dillagi Hai Aur Kaisi Hai Chahat;
    Hum Zarra Bhi Paas Nahi Uske Dil K Fir Yeh Intezaar Kaisa!
