Rahm Kar Zaalim

Mirza Ghalib 1797 (Kala Mahal) – 1869 (Chandni Chowk, Delhi)



Roman Script-

raḥm kar zaalim kih kyā būd-e chirāġh-e kushtah hai
nabẓ-e bīmār-e vafā dūd-e chirāġh-e kushtah hai

dil-lagī kī ārzū be-chain rakhtī hai hameñ
varnah yāñ be-raunaqī sūd-e chirāġh-e kushtah hai

Devanagari Script-

रह्‌म कर ज़ालिम कि क्‌या बूद-ए चिराग़-ए कुश्‌तह है
नब्‌ज़-ए बीमार-ए वफ़ा दूद-ए चिराग़-ए कुश्‌तह है

दिल-लगी की आर्‌ज़ू बे-चैन रख्‌ती है हमें
वर्‌नह यां बे-रौनक़ी सूद-ए चिराग़-ए कुश्‌तह है

Urdu Script-

رحم کر ظالم کہ کیا بودِ چراغِ کشتہ ہے
نبضِ بیمارِ وفا دودِ چراغِ کشتہ ہے

دل لگی کی آرزو بے چین رکھتی ہے ہمیں
ورنہ یاں بے رونقی سودِ چراغِ کشتہ ہے
