Aabroo - Honour

Nikalna khuld se Aadam ka sunte aaye hain lekin
Bohut be aabroo ho kar tere kooche se hum nikle

- 'Ghalib'
 

Museebat mein shareefon ki kabhi izzat nahin ghat'ti
Jalaa bhi daalo sone ko magar qeemat nahin ghat'ti

- 'Nama'loom'
 

Aaise Jeene se to hai doob ke marna behtar
Aabroo jis ki na ho woh koi insaan hi nahin

- 'Nama'loom'
 

 

Kabhi hai subh-e-eid is mein, kabhi shaam-e-muharram hai Yeh aa'lam-e-beena ke liye ibrat ka aa'lam hai
