Ghazal 234

Sher 367

ham ko ma.alūm hai jannat haqīqat lekin

dil ke ḳhush rakhne ko 'ġhālib' ye ḳhayāl achchhā hai

hum ko malum hai jannat ki haqiqat lekin

dil ke KHush rakhne ko 'ghaalib' ye KHayal achchha hai

ishq ne 'ġhālib' nikammā kar diyā

varna ham bhī aadmī the kaam ke

Ghalib, a worthless person, this love has made of me

otherwise a man of substance I once used to be

ishq ne 'ghaalib' nikamma kar diya

warna hum bhi aadmi the kaam ke

Ghalib, a worthless person, this love has made of me

otherwise a man of substance I once used to be

mohabbat meñ nahīñ hai farq jiine aur marne

usī ko dekh kar jiite haiñ jis kāfir pe dam nikle

In love there is no difference 'tween life and death do know

The very one for whom I die, life too does bestow

mohabbat mein nahin hai farq jine aur marne ka

usi ko dekh kar jite hain jis kafir pe dam nikle

In love there is no difference 'tween life and death do know

The very one for whom I die, life too does bestow

is sādgī pe kaun na mar jaa.e ai ḳhudā

laḌte haiñ aur haath meñ talvār bhī nahīñ

is sadgi pe kaun na mar jae ai KHuda

laDte hain aur hath mein talwar bhi nahin

hazāroñ ḳhvāhisheñ aisī ki har ḳhvāhish pe dam nikle

bahut nikle mire armān lekin phir bhī kam nikle

I have a thousand yearnings , each one afflicts me so

Many were fulfilled for sure, not enough although

hazaron KHwahishen aisi ki har KHwahish pe dam nikle

bahut nikle mere arman lekin phir bhi kam nikle

I have a thousand yearnings , each one afflicts me so

Many were fulfilled for sure, not enough although
