Du’aa (Prayer) — A Nazm for Pakistan’s Independence Day, 1967

aayeh hath uthein hum bhi

hum jinhein rusm-e du’aa yaad nahin

hum jinhein soz-e muhabat ke siwa

koi buth, koi khuda yaad nahin

aayeh urz guzarein keh nigar-e hustee

zehar-e imroz mein shirenya furda bhar de

wo jinhein taab-e garaan bary-a iyaam nahin

un ki pulkoon peh shaub-e roz ko hulka ker de

jin ki aankhoon ko roz-e subh ka yaara bhi nahin

un ki raatoon mein koi shuma munawar ker de

jin ke kadumoon ko kisi reh ka sahara bhi nahin

un nazroon peh koi raah ujagar ker de

jin ka deeN pariw-e kizb-o riya hai un ko

himet-e kufr mile, jurat-e tehqiq mile

jin ke sir muntazar-e tegh-e jafa hein un ko

dust-e qatil ko jatuk deenay ki taufiq mile

ishq ka sir-e nihaaN jaan tapaaN hai jis se

aaj iqrar karein aur tapish mit jaa’e

hurf-e haq dil mein khatakta hai jo kante ki turhaaN

aaj izhar karein aur khalish mit jaa’e
