Urdu

lab pe aati hai dua ban ke tamanna meri
zindgi shama ki surat ho khudaya meri

door duniya ka mere dam se andhera hojai
har jagah mere chamakne se ujala hojai

ho mere dum se yohe mere watan ki zeenat
jistara phool se hoti hai chaman ki zeenat

zindigi ho mere parwaane ki soorat, ya rab
ilm ki shama se ho mujko mohabat, ya rab

ho mera kaam gharebon ki himayat karna
dardmandon se, zaeefon se muhabbat karana

mere allah, buraee se bachana mujhko
naik jo rah ho us rah pe chalana mujhko

lab pe aati hai dua ban ke tamanna meri
zindgi shama ki surat ho khudaya meri


I had recorded this poem early on when the site was launched. But when I was moving servers and recoding the site certain mp3s were lost. This was one of them. I had asked other folk to read the lost poems but no one came through on this one.

So I'm recording it now, to, in some sense, fill in that gap. And hopefully, yet once again, kick off this space.
