By Allama Iqbal

خدا تجھے کسی طوفان سے آشنا کر دیں
کہ تیرے بحر کی موجوں میں اضطراب نہیں ہے
تجھے کتاب سے ممکن‌ نہیں فراغ کہ تو
کتاب خواں ہے مگر صاحب کتاب نہیں

ख़ुदा तुझे किसी तूफ़ाँ से आश्ना कर दे
कि तेरे बहर की मौजों में इज़्तिराब नहीं
तुझे किताब से मुमकिन नहीं फ़राग़ कि तू
किताब-ख़्वाँ है मगर साहिब-ए-किताब नहीं

ḳhudā tujhe kisī tūfāñ se āshnā kar deiñ
ki tere bahr kī maujoñ meñ iztirāb nahīñ
tujhe kitāb se mumkin nahīñ farāġh ki tū
kitāb-ḳhvāñ hai magar sāhib-e-kitāb nahīñ
