Ramadan Messages

Khuda aaj sabh par barsayega apni rehmaton ka noor
Umeed ka daaman thaamey rehna
Uss khuda se apni saari duaaein manwa lena
Mubarak ho tumhein Shab-e-barat
Iss Paak Ramadan ke mahiney mein
Mujh pe ek karam karna
Bas apni duaaon mein ek naam mera bhi shumaar kar lena
Ramadan Mubarak.
Waqt Parindey ki tarah par failaaye urdh jayega
Ramazaan ke iss pak maukey pe karlo nekiaan
Kuchh dino mein Chand ke didaar dekar Ramazan bhi Alvida keh jaayega.
Ramazan Mubarak.
Iftar ke aaney ki aahat ke saath ramazan ki rukhsatgi honey lagti hai.
Aaye mere khuda, nekiyon pe chale abhi sham bhi nahi hoti ki ramazaan rukhsat ho jata hai.
Chaand Mubarak!!
Shabh ko khila hua yeh chaand Mubarak
Chaand ko Doodh se nahayi yeh shokh chaandani Mubarak
Aur aapko hamari taraf se
Sitaaron se sajhi yeh Ramadan ki Chaand Raat Mubarak.
