Nigah-e-faqr main shaan-e-sikandari kya hai?

निगाह -ए-फक्र  में  शान -ए-सिकंदरी  क्या  है ?
खिराज  की  जो  गदा  हो , वो  केसरी  क्या  है ?
फलक  ने  की  है  अता उन  को  खाजगी  के  जिन्हें
खबर  नहीं  रवीश -ए-बंद  परवरी  क्या  है ?
किस्से  नहीं  है  तमन्ना -ए-सरवरी  लेकिन
खुदी  की  मौत  हो  जिस  में , वो  सरवरी  क्या  है ?
बुतों  से  तुझ  को  उमीदें , खुदा  से  नॉ मीदी
मुझे  बता  तो  सही  और  काफ्री क्या  है ?

- अल्लामा इकबाल

Nigah-e-faqr main shaan-e-sikandari kya hai?
Khiraaj ki jo gada ho, wo qaiseri kya hai?
Falaq nay ki hai ata un ko khaajgi kay jinhain
Khabar nahin rawish-e-banda parwari kya hai?
Kissey nahin hai tamanna-e-sarwari lekin
Khudi ki mout ho jis main, wo sarwari kya hai?
Buton say tujh ko umeedain, Khuda say no meedi
Mujhey bata tou sahi aur kaafri kya hai? - Allama Iqbal
