aankhon pe wo zulf aa rahi hai

BY AAGHA AKBARABADI

āñkhoñ pe vo zulf aa rahī hai
kaalī jaadū jagā rahī hai

zanjīr jo khaḌkhaḌā rahī hai
vahshat kyā ġhul machā rahī hai

lailā ḳhāka uḌā rahī hai
majnūñ ko havā batā rahī hai

zulfeñ vo parī hilā rahī hai
dīvānoñ kī shāmat aa rahī hai

pāmāl-e-ḳhirām ho chuke dafn
pisne ko bas ab hinā rahī hai

haiñ chaal se un kī zinda dargor
murdoñ pe qayāmat aa rahī hai

dil ne ulfat se zak uThā.ī
āñkhoñ dekhā rulā rahī hai

goyā hone de be-zabānī
kyuuñ merā galā dabā rahī hai

‘āġhā’ sāhab galī meñ un kī
ik huur tumheñ bulā rahī hai
