1. Kehthi hay bahen ke haal ko dekho tho bahi ek baar 
   Is dali hamsheer ka pochoge nahi kya hale zaar 
   Ta umer teri yaad me royegi Zainab zar zar

2. Ale nabi par baad tere bhaiya howi kya kay jafa 
   Unteon ki nangi peet par bithlaye the hamko ehle jafa 
   Kehthe the tamashayi dekho ye bara gale ek reesman 
   Ithna bhi kisi ne na soncha ke ye Zehra ki jayi hay

3. Khaime hamare jalgaye bhaandhi gayi hatheon me rasan 
   Chini gayi chadar meri na de saki bhay ko kafan

4. Sajad ki gardan me tauq aur paeon me zanjeer thi ah 
   Thame howe unteon ke mehar chaltha raha kateon ki rah

5. Beti tumhari qaid ke zulmo sitham na seh saki 
   Shimr-e-laeen ke zulm se kuch bhi na zuban se keh saki 
   Apne chacha aur baap se nadaa juda na reh saki 
   Masoom dasthe shumer se galeon pe tamache khayi hay

6. Zinda ke darpe ja ja kar baba ko bulathi thi hardum

7. Bazoo kataye sothe ho Abbas ay shere jawan 
   Ye bekaso beyaar bahen tere bina jaye kahan

   Kho baithi koyi bete ko koyi bhay ki yaad me hay khoyi

   Ay karbala godi me teri Zehra ki sari kamayi hay 
   Chelum hay gharibeon ka Zainab zindan se chutkar ayi hay
