Ye aalam shauq kaa dekhaa na jaa.e

ye aalam shauq kaa dekhaa na jaa.e
vo but hai yaa KHudaa dekhaa na jaa.e

ye kin nazron se tuu ne aaj dekhaa
ki teraa dekhnaa dekhaa na jaa.e

hamesha ke liye mujh se bichha.D jaa
ye manzar baar-haa dekhaa na jaa.e

ghalat hai jo sunaa par aazmaa kar
tujhe ai bevafaa dekhaa na jaa.e

ye mahruumii nahiin paas-e-vafaa hai
ko.ii tere sivaa dekhaa na jaa.e

yahii to aashnaa bante hain aaKHir
ko.ii naa-aashnaa dekhaa na jaa.e

ye mere saath kaiisii raushnii hai
ki mujh se raasta dekhaa na jaa.e

‘faraaz’ apne sivaa hai kaun tera
tujhe tujh se judaa dekhaa na jaa.e

Zindagii se yahii gila hai mujhe

zindagii se yahii gila hai mujhe
tuu bahut der se milaa hai mujhe

tuu mohabbat se ko.ii chaal to chal
haar jaane kaa hausla hai mujhe

dil dha.Daktaa nahiin Tapaktaa hai
kal jo KHvaahish thi aabla hai mujhe

ham-safar chaahiye hujuum nahiin
ik musaafir bhii qaafila hai mujhe

kohkan ho ki qais ho ki ‘faraz’
sab men ik shaKHs hii milaa hai mujhe

Jab teri yaad ke jugnuu chamke

jab teri yaad ke jugnuu chamke
der tak aankh men aansuu chamke

saKHt taariik hai dil kii duniyaa
aise aalam men agar tuu chamke

ham ne dekhaa sar-e-baazaar-e-vafaa
kabhii motii kabhii aansuu chamke

shart hai shiddat-e-ehsaas-e-jamaal
rang to rang hai KHushbuu chamke

aankh majbuur-e-tamaashaa hai ‘faraz’
ek suurat hai ki har suu chamke
