Harif-E-Matlab-E-Mushkil Nahin Fusun-E-Niyaz

Harīf-e-matlab-e-mushkil nahīñ fusūn-e-niyāz

Duā qubūl ho yā rab ki umr-e-ḳhizr darāz!

Na ho ba-harzah bayābāñ-navard-e-vahm-e-vajūd

Hanūz tere tasavvur meñ hai nasheb-o-farāz

Visāl jalva tamāshā hai par dimāġh kahāñ

Ki diije ā.ina-e-intizār ko pardāz

Har ek zarra-e-āshiq hai āftāb-parast

Ga.ī na ḳhaak hue par havā-e-jalva-e-nāz

Na pūchh vus.at-e-mai-ḳhāna-e-junūñ ‘Ghālib’

Jahāñ ye kāsa-e-gardūñ hai ek ḳhāk-andāz

Fareb-e-san.at-e-ījād kā tamāshā dekh

Nigāh aks-farosh o ḳhayāl ā.ina-sāz

Zi-bas-ki jalva-e-sayyād hairat-ārā hai

Udī hai safha-e-ḳhātir se sūrat-e-parvāz

Hujūm-e-fikr se dil misl-e-mauj larze hai

Ki shīsha nāzuk o sahbā-e-ābgīna-gudāz

‘Asad’ se tark-e-vafā kā gumāñ vo ma.anī hai

Ki khīñchiye par-e-tā.ir se sūrat-e-parvāz

Hanūz ai asar-e-dīd nañg-e-rusvā.ī

Nigāh fitna-ḳhirām o dar-e-do-ālam baaz…
