Efforts: Nishat Naqvi

Jab mera Hussain, Fatema ka cheyn (x2)
Pushte raahwaar se khaak pe ghira
Ya Hussain (x3)
Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
Ya Hussain (x2)
Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
Aaj imtehaan sabr-e-husain-e-ghareeb hay (x2)

1) Jaan kar qareeb tar mera parwardigaar dekh
   Aashiq ka apne reyg-e-tapaan par qaraar dekh
   Mera yakeen dekh mera etebaar dekh
   Mei kitna mutmain hun idhar eik baar dekh
   Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
   Aaj imtehaan sabr-e-husain-e-ghareeb hay (x2)

2) Pyaasa hun teen roz ka zakhmon se choor hun
   Ya rab gawaah rahiyo ke mei bekasur hun
   Che maah ho gaye mei watan se bhi door hun
   Ab teri baargaah mei tere huzoor hun
   Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
   Aaj imtehaan sabr-e-husain-e-ghareeb hay (x2)

3) Ek qalb-e-natawaan be bahattar ka daagh hay
   Athara saal ke Ali Akbar ka daagh hay
   Bazu burida sher ka Asghar ka daag hay
   Lagna abhi luti huwi chadar ka daagh hay
   Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
   Aaj imtehaan sabr-e-husain-e-ghareeb hay (x2)

4) Eh keh ke jo khamosh huwe sibt-e-payambar
   Dekh ke sarhaane khari hay madar-e-muztar
   Shehzadi ke sar par hay pari khaak ki chadar
   Kehti wo sar god mei Shabbir ka lekar
   Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
   Aaj imtehaan sabr-e-husain-e-ghareeb hay (x2)

5) Mazloom ki imdaad ko aata nahi koi
   Paani dam-e-marg pilata nahi koi
   Zakhmon pe lagi khaak churaata nahi koi
   Haay haay mere bache ko bachata nahi koi
   Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
   Aaj imtehaan sabr-e-husain-e-ghareeb hay (x2)

6) Haider se kaha Zehra ne khof ata hay saheb
   Maan hun mera dil dard se tharrata hay saheb
   Ye dekhiye duniya se pisar jaata hay saheb
   Khanjar ko liye shimr chala aata hay saheb
   Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
   Aaj imtehaan sabr-e-husain-e-ghareeb hay (x2)

7) Farmaane lage maan se basad ranj ye maula
   Kuch deyr mei ab kooch hay duniya se hamara
   Ay amma chali jaaye maqtal se khudara
   Kis tarah se dekhogi tarapta huwa laasha
   Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
   Aaj imtehaan sabr-e-husain-e-ghareeb hay (x2)

8) Ek baar jo khaymon ki taraf yaas dekha
   Dekha ke dar-e-khaymaan pe roti hay Sakina
   Ek hook uthi qalb mei rone lage maula
   Zainab se ishaaron se kaha ay meri behna
   Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
   Aaj imtehaan sabr-e-husain-e-ghareeb hay (x2)

9) Aawaz-e-ghaib aayi palat aa Hussain aa (x2)
   Ab imtehaan tera mukammal yaha huwa
   Khun-e-pisar se tu hay wuzu ab to kar chuka
   Ye sun ke sheh ne sajde mei sar rakh ke ye kaha
   Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
   Aaj imtehaan sabr-e-husain-e-ghareeb hay (x2)

10)Jab ponchi behen bhaayi ke laashe pe khule sar
   Dekha ke laeen pher chuka halq pe khanjar
   Aur shimr liye jata hay sar gesoo pakar kar
   Ay "Sarwar-o-Rehan" karo yaad wo manzar
   Khanjar qareeb, zanu-e-qatil qareeb hay
   Aaj imtehaan sabr-e-husain-e-ghareeb hay (x2)

Assalaamu alayka ya tharallahi wabna thaari
Wal witral mawtoor, ashhadu annaka qad aqamtas-salaat
Wa ataytaz-zakaat, wa amarta bil maaroofi wa nahayta annil munkar
Wa atatallahu wa rasoolahu, hatta ataaqal yakeen
Assalaamu alayka ayyuhash-shaheed
Assalaamu alayka ayyuhal-mazloom, wabnul-mazloom
