 Jadaa-E-Fan Mein Bade Sakht Muqaam Aate Hain

 Jadaa-E-Fan Mein Bade Sakht Muqaam Aate Hain
Mar Ke Rah Jaataa Hai Fanakaar Amar Hone Tak

Kitane Gaalib The Jo Paidaa Huye Aur Mar Bhii Gaye
Qadradaann Ko Takhallus Ki Khabar Hone Tak

Kitane Iqabaal Rah-E-Fikr Mein Uthe Lekin
Raastaa Bhuul Gaye Khatm-E-Safar Hone Tak

Kitane Shabbiir Hasan Khaan Na Bane Josh Kabhii
Mar Gaye Kitane Sikander Bhii Jigar Hone Tak

Faiz Rang Bhii Ashaar Mein Aa Sakataa Thaa
Ungaliyaan Saath To Den Khuun Men Tar Hone Tak

Chand Zarron Hi Ko Milatii Hai Ziyaa-E-Khurshiid
Chand Taare Hii Chamakate Hain Sahar Hone Tak

Dil-E-Shaayar Pe Kuchh Aisii Hii Guzaratii Hai ‘Figaar’
Jo Kisii Qatare Pe Guzare Hai Guhar Hone Tak
