حسین درد کو، دل کو، دعا کو کہتے ہیں

حسین اصل میں دینِ خدا کو کہتے ہیں

حسین حوصلۂ اِنقلاب دیتا ہے

حسین شمع نہیں آفتاب دیتا ہے

۲

حسین لشکرِ باطل کا غم نہیں کرتا

حسین عزم ہے ماتھے کو خم نہیں کرتا

حسین ظلم کے مارے ہوؤں کا مامن ہے

حسین زندگیِ بے سکوں کا مسکن ہے

۳

حسین حُسنِ پیمبر کی ضو کو کہتے ہیں

حسین سینۂ حیدر کی لو کو کہتے ہیں

سحر کی دھوپ اُتاری ہر آشیانے میں

لہو سے جس نے اُجالا کیا زمانے میں

۴

حسین سلسلۂ جاوداں ہے رحمت کا

حسین نقطۂ معراج ہے رسالت کا

یقیں کی ظرب، ہر اِک پیکرِ کماں کے لئے

حسین برق ہے باطل کے آشیاں کے لئے

۵

حسین جذبۂ آزادیِ ہر آدم ہے

حسین حُرّیتِ زندگی کا پرچم ہے

حسین عزم کو جب تابناک کرتا ہے

جلا کے خِرمنِ باطل کو خاک کرتا ہے

۶

پیامِ رحمتِ حق ہے پیامِ شبّیری

ہر ایک پیاسے کو ملتا ہے جامِ شبّیری

حسین عزم ہے نمرود سے بغاوت کا

حسین سے نہ اُٹھانا سوال بیعت کا

۷

دِلِ حسین کی گرمی سے دِل مچلتے ہیں

اُس اِک چراغ سے لاکھوں چراغ جلتے ہیں

حسین سعیٔ تجلّی میں کامیاب ہوا

لہو میں ڈوب کے اُبھرا تو آفتاب ہوا

۸

حسین صبح جہاں تاب کی علامت ہے

حسین ہی کو بُھلا دیں تو کیا قیامت ہے

بروزِ حشر نشاطِ دوام بخشے گا

حسین درشنِؔ تشنہ کو جام بخشے گا

हुसैन अज़्म है माथे को ख़म नहीं करता

हुसैन ज़ुल्म के मारे हुऔं का मामन है

हुसैन ज़िन्दगी है, सुकूं का मिस्कन है

हुसैन हुस्न-ए पैअम्बर कि ज़ौ को कहते हैं

हुसैन सीना-ए हैदर कि लौ को कहते हैं

सहर कि धुप उतारी हर आशियाने में

लहू से जिस ने उजाला किया ज़माने में

हुसैन सिल्सिला-ए जावेदां है रहमत का

हुसैन नुक़्ता-ए मे’राज है रिसालत का

यक़ीं कि ज़र्ब, हर एक पैकर-ए कमां के लिए

हुसैन बर्क़ है बातिल के आशियाँ के लिए

हुसैन जज़्बा-ए आज़ादी-ए हर-आदम है

हुसैन हुर्रियत-ए ज़िन्दगी का परचम है

हुसैन अज़्म को जब ताब्नाक करता है

जला के ख़िर्मन-ए बातिल को ख़ाक करता है

पयाम-ए रहमत-ए हक़ है पयाम-ए शब्बीरी

हर एक प्यासे को मिल्ता है जाम-ए शब्बीरी

हुसैन अज़्म है नम्रूद से बग़ावत का

हुसैन से न उठाना सवाल बै’अत का

दिल-ए हुसैन कि गरमी से दिल मचलते हैं

उस के एक चिराग़ से लाखों चिराग़ जलते हैं

हुसैन स’ई-ए तजल्ली में कामियाब हुआ

लहू में डूब के उभरा तो आफ़्ताब हुआ

हुसैन सुबह जहां-ताब कि अलामत है

हुसैन ही को भील दें तो क्या क़यामत है

ब-रोज़-ए हश्र निशात-ए दवाम बख़्शेगा

हुसैन दर्शन-ए तिश्ना को जाम बख़्शेगा
