Wo dushman-E-jaN, jaan se pyaara bhi kabhi tha

Wo dushman-E-jaN, jaan se pyaara bhi kabhi tha
Ab kis se kahaiN, koii humaara bhi kabhi tha

Utra hai rag-O-pai mein to dil kaT sa gaya hai
Yeh zehr-E-judaai K gawaara bhi kabhi tha

Har dost jahaN abr-E-gurezaaN ki tarah hai
Ye shehar kabhi shehr humaara bhi kabhi tha

Titli ke ta’aaqub mein koi phool sa bachcha
Aisaa hi koi khaab humaara bhi kabhi tha

Ab agle zamaane ke milen log toh puchheiN
Jo haal humara hai tumhaara bhi kabhi tha?

Har bazm mein hum ne usay afsurda hi dekha
kahte hain ‘Faraz’ anjuman-aara bhi kabhi tha
