    About this line:
    tanahaaI kii ye kaun sii ma.nzil hai rafiiqo.n
    Perhaps the last word is used to mean travelling companions or friends?

    Then the sher would mean: “what is this desolation we have reached, my fellow travellers? There is desert as far as the eye can see.”

    Thank you for posting meaning of words instead of the shers or the gazal.

    I agree with Prasanth about Rafiko because of “Manzil”. Shaayar wants to convey that place he and his fellow travelers have reached is not THE destination or even an oasis but another desert.
