Urdu ‘Faiz Ahmad Faiz

Jo Zulm Peh La?nat Na Kare

Jo Zulm Peh La?nat Na Kare, Aap La?een Hai
Jo Jabar Ka Munkir Nahi, Woh Munkire Deen Hai

Hasrat-e-deed mein guzraan hain zamaney kab se
Dasht-e-umeed mein gardaan hain dawaney kab se

Der se ankh mein utra nahin askhon ka azaab
Apne zimey hain tera farz najaney kab se

Kis tarah paak ho be-arzu lamhon ka azaab
Dard aya nahin darbaar sjanaey kab se

Sar Karo saaz ke cherrein koi dil sooz ghazal
Dhoondta hai dil-e-shoreeda bahaney kab se

Pur karo jaam ke shayed ho isi lahta rawaan
Rok rakha hai jo ik teer kazzaa ne kab se

Faiz phir kab kisi maktal mein karain ge abad
Lab pe veeran hain shaheedon ke fasaney kab se
