Kia sitam tha Karbala may
Efforts: Syed-Rizwan Rizvi

kya sitam tha karbala may 
dard o gham tha karbala may
haye Zehra pe paale pe shimr e layeen 
Ka qadam tha karbala may
kya sitam tha karbala....

shah jalti reth par thay 
na bhatije na pisar thay
kaun aata madad ko shaheedo ka sar 
Sab qalam tha karbala may 
kya sitam tha karbala....

chau taraf ko dekhte thay
pani pani maangte thay
dhoop shiddat ki thi
pyas se sheh ka honton 
Pe dam tha karbala may
kya sitam tha karbala....

bacha hathon par uthakar
maangte thay pani sarwar
haye wo cheh mahine ke bache ka honton 
Pe dam tha karbala may
kya sitam tha karbala....

hurmula jab teer maara
khoon ugalkar wo sidhaara
apne baba ke gardan pa gardan kiye 
Apni kham tha karbala may
kya sitam tha karbala....

dhal gayi wo pyari gardan
gir paday wo dono jaushan
khoon se chota kurta wo nanha 
Sa nam tha karbala may
kya sitam tha karbala....

nikli zainab khaak udaati
pee ti thi apni chati
dekhti kya hai naize pa sar shahe deen 
Ka alam tha karbala may
kya sitam tha karbala....

sab charinde ro rahe thay
sab parinde ro rahe thay
dekh haal shahe karbala ki har ek 
Chashm nam tha karbala may
kya sitam tha karbala....

ay bahadur zulm shah par 
jo jo guzre unke upar
aaj tak aisa dekha suna hi nahi 
Jo sitam tha karbala may
kya sitam tha karbala....
