Lyrics by Dukhi Prem Nagri

बुलबुल ने गुल से गुल ने बहारों से कह दिया
एक चौदवीं के चाँद ने तारों से कह दिया

ek chaudviin ke chaand ne, taaron se keh diya

दुनिया किसी के प्यार में जन्नत से कम नहीं
एक दिलरुबा है दिल में जो हूरों से कम नहीं

duniya kisi ke pyaar mein jannat se kam nahin
ek dil-rubaa hai dil mein jo, hooron se kam nahin

तुम बादशाह-इ-हुस्न हो हुस्न-इ-जहां हो
जान-इ-वफ़ा हो और मोहब्बत की शान हो
जलवे तुम्हारे हुस्न के तारों से कम नहीं

tum baadshah-e-husn ho, husn-e-jahaan ho
jaan-e-wafa ho aur, mohabbat ki shaan ho
jalwe tumhare husn ke, taaron se kam nahin

भूले से मुस्कुराओ तो मोती बरस पड़ें
पलकें उठाके देखो तो कलियाँ भी हंस पड़ें
खुशबू तुमारे ज़ुल्फ़ की फूलों से कम नहीं

bhoole se muskurao to, moti baras padein
palkein uthake dekho to, kaliyaan bhi hans padein
khushboo tumhari zulf ki, phoolon se kam nahin

    मेहदी हसन साहब की सबसे बढ़िया ग़ज़लों में से एक है ये ग़ज़ल


      Dear Naresh ! hello This song was written by my dear father Mr. Dukhi Prem Nagri and was sung by Mehdi Hassan for the film Jaag Utha Insaan. My name is Murad Vehaj Afridi and I am very touched by this song every time I hear it. My father was a well known poet, writer, author of many books, editor of newspapers in India and Pakistan. He made films in India and then in 1956 he migrated to Pakistan under pressure from his family but he always wanted to go back to India. He passed away on Sept 4 1991
