zindagī kyā hai anāsir meñ zuhūr-e-tartīb

maut kyā hai inhīñ ajzā pareshāñ honā

zindagi kya hai anasir mein zuhur-e-tartib

maut kya hai inhin ajza ka pareshan hona

agar dard-e-mohabbat se na insāñ āshnā hotā

na kuchh marne ġham hotā na jiine mazā hotā

agar dard-e-mohabbat se na insan aashna hota

na kuchh marne ka gham hota na jine ka maza hota

adab ta.alīm jauhar hai zevar hai javānī

vahī shāgird haiñ jo ḳhidmat-e-ustād karte haiñ

adab talim ka jauhar hai zewar hai jawani ka

wahi shagird hain jo KHidmat-e-ustad karte hain

ik silsila havas hai insāñ zindagī

is ek musht-e-ḳhāk ko ġham do-jahāñ ke haiñ

ek silsila hawas ka hai insan ki zindagi

is ek musht-e-KHak ko gham do-jahan ke hain

vatan ḳhaak se mar kar bhī ham ko uns baaqī hai

mazā dāmān-e-mādar hai is miTTī ke dāman meñ

watan ki KHak se mar kar bhi hum ko uns baqi hai

maza daman-e-madar ka hai is miTTi ke daman mein
