Magar Wada Karte Huwe Aar Kya Thi
Tumhare Payami Ne Sub Raaz Khola
Khata Iss Mein Bande Ki Sarkar Kya Thi
Bhari Bazm Mein Apne Ashiq Ko Tara
Teri Ankh Masti Mein Hushyar Kya Thi!
Tammal To Tha Un Ko Ane Mein Qasid
Magar Ye Bata Tarz-e-Inkar Kya Thi
Kashish Teri Ae Shauq-e-Didar Kya Thi !
Kahin Zikr Rehta Hai Iqbal Tera
Fasoon Tha Koi, Teri Guftar Kya Thi
If you had not come I would have had no occasion for contention
But what reluctance in making the promise was?
Your messenger disclosed every secret
O Lord! What fault of Man in this was?
You recognized Your Lover in the full assembly
How alert Your eye in the middle of the ecstasy was!
True! Reluctant he was to come, O messenger
But tell me what the manner of denial was
Musa was effortlessly attracted to Tur
How strong, O Zeal your attraction was!
Some magic, not your speech it was
