Andheri Shab Mein Hai Cheete Ki Ankh Jis Ka Charagh
That man alone in life shall find to aim and end a certain sign:
Whose eyes in pitch dark night can see, and like the eyes of panther shine.
Nahin Hai Banda-e-Hur Ke Liye Jahan Mein Faragh
The slaves can get repose and rest in world confined by Time and Space;
But men of high and noble birth havenʹt leisure in worldly race.
Teri Nazar Ka Nigehban Ho Sahib-e-‘Ma Zagh’
The progress great that West has mad has bedazzled your eyes a deal:
May Prophet guard your precious sight, To vouch him God did Najm reveal!
Chamak Rahe Hain Misal-e-Sitara Jis Ke Ayagh
These revels do not last for long, Like guests they stay for a breath or so;
The bowls of wine that glint like stars, Are soon deprived of gloss and glow.
Saba Se Bhi Na Mila Tujh Ko Booye Gul Ka Suragh!
The books have marred your taste and zest to such a great and vast extent,
That breeze of morn has also failed to give you clue of rose and scent!
