Poem for Kids in Urdu -  Lab Pe Aaati Hai Dua by Allama Iqbal

Lab Pe Aaati Hai Dua Bun Ke Tamanna Meri,
Zindagi Shamma Ki Soorat Ho Khudaya Meri.
Doore Duniya Ka Merey Dum Say Andhera Ho Jaaye,
Her Jagah Merey Chamakney Say Ujaala Ho Jaaye.
Ho Merey Dum Say Younhi Merey Watan Ki Zeenat,
Jis Tarah Phool Say Hoti Hai Chaman Ki Zeenat.
Zindagi Ho Meri Parwaanay Ki Soorat Ya Rab!
Ilm Ki Shamma Say Ho Mujh Ko Mohabbat Ya Rab!
Ho Mera Kaam Ghareebo’n Ki Himaayat Karna,
Dardmando’n Say Zayeefo’n Say Mohabbat Karna.
Murray Allah Buraayee Say Bachaana Mujh Ko,
Naik Jo Raah Ho Uss Rah Pay Chalaana Mujh Ko.
